Sample and Methodology detail

There are five leaders - or no leaders - as Republican voters look at likely GOP candidates in the 2016 White House race, with no candidate above 10 percent and 20 percent undecided, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.

Leading the pack with 10 percent each are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

Rounding out the top 10 for televised debates are U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky at 7 percent, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 6 percent, Donald Trump at 5 percent, New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie at 4 percent and Carly Fiorina and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 2 percent each.

Trump tops the "no way" list as 21 percent of Republican voters say they would definitely not support him. Bush is next with 17 percent, with Christie at 15 percent.

Hillary Clinton dominates among Democratic voters nationwide, with 57 percent, compared to 60 percent April 23. U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has 15 percent with Vice President Joseph Biden at 9 percent. No other candidate tops 1 percent with 14 percent undecided.

Clinton and Biden top the "no way" list with 9 percent each.

"Safe to say, the 2016 Republican presidential primary is anyone's race. With no front- runner and identical numbers for the top five contenders, it's a horserace which can only be described as a scrambled field - at least so far," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

In a general election matchup, Clinton gets 46 percent of American voters to 42 percent for Paul and 45 percent of voters to 41 percent for Rubio. She leads other top Republicans:
  • 46 - 37 percent over Christie;
  • 47 - 40 percent over Huckabee;
  • 47 - 37 percent over Bush;
  • 46 - 38 percent over Walker;
  • 48 - 37 percent over Cruz;
  • 50 - 32 percent over Trump.
American voters say 53 - 39 percent that Clinton is not honest and trustworthy, but say 60 - 37 percent that she has strong leadership qualities. Voters are divided 48 - 47 percent over whether Clinton cares about their needs and problems.

Voters say 37 - 31 percent that Rubio is honest and trustworthy, 42 - 28 percent that he has strong leadership qualities, and 38 - 35 percent that he cares about their needs and problems.

Paul scores 46 - 27 percent for being honest and trustworthy, 45 - 30 percent for strong leadership qualities and 42 - 36 percent for caring about their needs and problems.

"Can you get low marks on honesty and still be a strong leader? Sure you can," Malloy said. "Hillary Clinton crushes her democratic rivals and keeps the GOP hoard at arm's length."

Going to war with Iraq was the wrong thing to do, American voters say 59 - 32 percent. Republicans support the 2003 decision 62 - 28 percent, while opposition is 78 - 16 percent among Democrats and 65 - 26 percent among independent voters. 2016 House and Senate Races

Looking at the 2016 races for the House of Representatives, 39 percent of American voters say they would vote for a Democrat in their district, while 36 percent would vote Republican. In states which have Senate races, 42 percent would vote Democratic and 35 percent would vote Republican.

From May 19 - 26, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,711 registered voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones. The survey includes 679 Republicans with a margin of error of +/- 3.8 percentage points and 748 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 3.6 percentage points.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and the nation as a public service and for research.
