Which Leading Candidates Are Best On National Security ?
These charts are made from information in a new YouGov Poll -- done between November 19th and 23rd of a random nation sample of 2,000 adults, with a margin of error of 3.1 points.
This part of their poll was to see which of the leading candidates (of both parties) were perceived as being the best on national security -- and Hillary Clinton was viewed as best by most Americans. She topped all other candidates by 16 points on who is ready to be commander-in-chief. She topped them all by 11 points on who could deal wisely with an international crisis. And she and Donald Trump were virtually tied on who was "tough enough" to be president (with all other candidates trailing by at least 11 points).
The Republicans have tried to position themselves as being the strongest on national security -- but that doesn't seem to be what the general public thinks.
