Top Reactions in Gallup Poll: Clinton ‘Dishonest,’ Sanders ‘Socialist’

The latest Gallup poll revealed what we all knew. Most voters think Hillary Clinton is “dishonest” and that Bernie Sanders is a “socialist.”

Of all the options, 21 percent of voters agreed that Clinton was dishonest, while 12 percent called Sanders a socialist.

The Hill reports:

The survey broadly underscored the findings of other polls of the Democratic race, where Clinton is generally viewed as qualified while Sanders is viewed as more trustworthy.

The perceptions of Clinton come after she edged out Sanders in Iowa and Nevada, while Sanders picked up a big win in New Hampshire. The pair are battling ahead of the South Carolina primary on Saturday.

Gallup noted that “dishonest” was also the most frequent response when they asked the same question about Clinton in 2008. And most references to “socialist” for Sanders in the latest survey came from Republicans.

The survey of 1,014 adults was conducted Feb. 13–14 with an overall margin of error of 4 points.
