Additional Trend Information

One year before Election Day 2016, Dr. Ben Carson is virtually tied with Donald Trump as strong front-runners for the Republican nomination, and Carson tops former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 50 - 40 percent in the final face-off, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.

Trump gets 24 percent of Republican votes, with Carson at 23 percent, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 14 percent, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 13 percent, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 4 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. No other candidate tops 3 percent, with 9 percent undecided, and 63 percent who might change their mind.

Among Republicans, 25 percent of voters say they "would definitely not support" Trump, with 23 percent who would not back Bush.

Clinton gets 53 percent of Democrats, with 35 percent for Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, with 9 percent undecided and 44 percent who might change their mind.

Only 8 percent of Democrats say they "would definitely not support" Clinton.

"Is there a doctor in the house? There certainly is and at the moment Dr. Ben Carson is delivering a troubling diagnosis to Secretary Hillary Clinton," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "With the election one year away, Ben Carson has surgically cut away all but one GOP opponent and taken a scalpel to Hillary Clinton's lead.

"But a year is an eternity in presidential campaigns and this race already has left some former front-runners on life support.

"Clinton gets crushed on character issues, pounded by Carson and closely challenged by Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio."

Clinton's traditional lead among women evaporates as American voters pick Carson over the Democrat 50 - 40 percent. Women go 45 percent for Carson and 44 percent for Clinton, while men back the Republican 55 - 35 percent. In other matchups with GOP contenders:
  • Clinton gets 46 percent to Trump's 43 percent;
  • Rubio tops Clinton 46 - 41 percent;
  • Cruz gets 46 percent to Clinton's 43 percent;
  • New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie tops Clinton 46 - 41 percent.
Sanders doesn't do much better against Republicans:
  • Losing to Carson 51 - 39 percent;
  • Getting 46 percent to Trump's 44 percent;
  • Trailing Rubio 47 - 41 percent;
  • Getting 44 percent to Cruz's 45 percent;
  • Getting 42 percent to Christie's 45 percent.
Bush has the worst net favorability rating of any candidate, a negative 25 - 58 percent, while Trump gets a negative 37 - 56 percent and Clinton gets a negative 42 - 52 percent. Other favorability ratings are:
  • 49 - 25 percent for Carson;
  • 39 - 36 percent for Sanders;
  • 39 - 25 percent for Rubio;
  • 35 - 32 percent for Cruz.
Clinton has the lowest rating for honesty as American voters say 60 - 36 percent she is not honest and trustworthy. Trump is not honest and trustworthy, voters say 58 - 38 percent.

Carson gets the best honesty grades among top candidates, a positive 62 - 24 percent.

Carson also gets the highest grades as American voters say 56 - 32 percent that he cares about their needs and problems.

But voters say 50 - 38 percent that Carson does not have the right kind of experience to be president. Voters say 58 - 39 percent that Trump does not have the right experience, the two lowest grades among top candidates.
