Over half of Americans think Democratic presidential candidate Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonFormer Obama adviser Plouffe predicts 'historical level' of turnout by Trump supporters Poll: More Republican voters think party is more united than Democratic voters Whoopi Goldberg presses Sanders: 'Why are you still in the race?' MORE lacks honesty and trustworthiness, a new poll says.


The Quinnipiac University sampling released on Thursday found that 61 percent of all voters believe Clinton has neither of those attributes.

That score is her lowest on honesty and trustworthiness since the polling agency began tracking her campaign in April.

It added that just 34 percent of all voters see the former secretary of State as honest and trustworthy.

Quinnipiac additionally found that most voters associate the word “liar” with Clinton, with 178 respondents describing her as such.

Quinnipiac’s latest survey found that Clinton still edges out her Republican competition in 2016 among all voters, however.

It said that Clinton beats GOP front-runner Donald Trump, 45 percent to 41 percent.

She also tops former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, 42 percent to 40 percent, Quinnipiac found. She bests Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.), 44 percent to 43 percent.

The polling agency surveyed 1,563 registered voters between Aug. 20-25 over land lines and cellphones. It said that its latest sampling also has a 2.5 percent margin of error.

Her support is gradually eroding across multiple national polls in the wake of revelations that she used a private email server while secretary of State.

That server and a backup thumb drive were turned over to Justice Department investigators earlier this month.
