PRESIDENTIAL REPTRAK® SHOWS BOTH CANDIDATES HAVE A POOR REPUTATION,
BUT CLINTON HAS THE EDGE

There’s a lack of universal love for the candidates — Trump has a credibility issue on his policies and Clinton has relatability issues based on perceptions of personal brand — neither has captured the hearts and minds of voters.
