(TRNS)- Donald Trump is leading as the GOP’s top 2016 Presidential candidate, despite a continuing spring of bad press and criticism from members of his own party.
A new poll from Quinnipiac University National Poll shows Trump as the clear leader, with 20 percent of Republican voters backing the real estate mogul and former reality TV star. Following behind Trump are Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker with 13 percent and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush with 10 percent.
Meanwhile, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tops the Democrat pool among 55 percent of Democratic voters nationwide. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) follows Clinton with 17 percent and 13 percent back Vice President Joseph Biden.
The poll also shows both Clinton and Trump top their respective party’s ‘No Way List,’ with 30 percent of Republican voters say they would definitely not support Trump; however, only 9 percent of Democrats say they would never support Hillary.
Though top candidates, Trump and Clinton scored poorly when it comes to honesty and the sense that they care about voters concerns. 58 – 33 percent said Trump lacked the two qualities while 57-37 percent said the same about Clinton.
If the two candidates were to face off, voters back the former Secretary of State by a wide 48-36 percent margin.
