A quarter of likely Democratic voters (24 percent) said they agree that their party’s front-runner should suspend her campaign, compared with 73 percent of likely Republican voters


Forty-five percent of all voters said they consider the former secretary of State’s use of a private email server to be a “serious scandal,” while 28 percent of voters consider the matter “embarrassing.” Twenty-three percent of respondents said the controversy is “no big deal.”

The poll also found that only 37 percent of voters trust Clinton, and that 63 percent think it’s likely that her actions at State were influenced by foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation.

The FBI is investigating whether Clinton transmitted classified information over her private email server while as secretary.

Dozens of Clinton’s emails would have automatically received classified status based on the context in which they were written, Reuters reported on Saturday.

The former first lady has denied any wrongdoing and rejected claims that she knowingly sent or received any classified material through the server.

While Clinton is still the front-runner for the Democratic nomination, Vice President Biden is reportedly “increasingly leaning toward” throwing his hat into the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.
