Sixty-two percent say Clinton has the experience needed to be president, and just 31 percent say the same of Trump, according to a Gallup survey released Friday.


The poll also found that 51 percent said Clinton can work together with the opposing party, while only 39 percent said Trump can.

But respondents sided with Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, on leadership and independence questions.

Sixty percent said Trump is a “strong and decisive leader,” with 51 percent saying the same of Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.

And 52 percent said Trump would best resist special interests, to Clinton’s 44 percent.

Neither presidential candidate rated highly in questions of honest and moral character.

Thirty-nine percent said Clinton has “strong moral character,” and 32 percent said she is "trustworthy and honest."

Trump scored 36 percent and 33 percent, respectively, in the same categories.

Forty-nine percent said Clinton can “manage the government efficiently,” while 42 percent said so of Trump.

Gallup conducted its poll of 1,530 adults nationwide via telephone interviews from May 18-22. It has a 3 percent margin of error.
