"Dishonest” and “liar” were the words that come to the minds of United States citizens when asked about Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, according to a new nationwide poll by Gallup on both her and rival candidate Bernie Sanders.
The next closest word associations to the former secretary of state were "dislike her" at 9 percent, "like her" at 8 percent and "criminal/crooked/thief/belongs in jail" and "capable of being president/qualified" both at 7 percent, the poll revealed.
"Dishonest" and "Socialist" Lead U.S. Reactions to Dems... https://t.co/ZB9BiaYF7b— GallupNews (@GallupNews) February 23, 2016
It seems Clinton has always been seen viewed negatively as in 2008, Gallup said "dishonest" was also the most frequent response when they asked the same question about Hillary.
In the same poll, 12 percent of those asked described Sanders as a "socialist,".6 percent said "older/aged," while "favorable" and "fresh face/new ideas/change for the better" both received 5 percent.
The Gallup surveyed 1,014 adult between Feb. 13 -14 with a 4 percent overall margin of error.
Other polls of the Democratic race also showed that Sanders was mostly viewed as trustworthy while many saw Clinton as more qualified.
Meanwhile, a new poll of 18-26-year-olds sponsored by Snapchat and news outlet Politico showed that most participants saw Sanders as the U.S.’s “most trusted and respected” political leader with 31 percent support. President Barack Obama and Hillary received 18 percent and 11 percent, respectively, in that same category.
The survey included 1,000 young Americans and was conducted Feb. 11-14.
The Snapchat poll showed that 66 percent thought corporate America “embodies everything that is wrong with America,” while 58 percent believe socialism is the "most compassionate political system."
The recent polls come as Clinton and Sanders brace for another battle in South Carolina Saturday, where Black voters are a determining factor in the race.
Clinton barely won the Iowa caucus with less than 1 percent lead over Sanders. The former first lady also won Nevada last Saturday with less than 5 percent lead.
Meanwhile, Sanders secured a big win in New Hampshire with at least 20 percent more votes than Clinton.
