Most Americans don't like Trump or Clinton, poll finds

The majority of Americans don’t view either presumptive presidential nominee favorably, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

Seventy percent of those polled view Donald Trump unfavorably, while 55 percent view Hillary Clinton unfavorably.

Trump’s favorability dropped sharply since a mid-May poll, which analysts attributed to criticism over his claim that a federal judge cannot preside fairly over a case involving Trump University because of the judge’s Mexican heritage.

Only 15 percent of those polled said their view of Trump was “strongly” favorable, while 56 percent said their view was strongly unfavorably.

Clinton’s favorability also dropped since the previous poll. Her favorability has been steadily declining since January, according to poll results. This is her highest disapproval rating on record, dating back to 1992.

Twenty-five percent of those polled said their view of Clinton was strongly favorable, while 39 percent said it was strongly unfavorable.
