Public Likes Hillary Clinton More Than Donald Trump
These charts were made from a new Gallup Poll -- done between October 11th and 17th of a random national sample of 3,582 adults, with a margin of error of only 2 points.
Hillary Clinton has a current favorable rating of 44% and an unfavorable rating of 56%. That's not great, but it's significantly better than Donald Trump, who has a favorable rating of 31% and unfavorable rating of 68%. That means Clinton's favorable rating is 13 points higher than Trump's -- and Trump's unfavorable rating is 12 points higher than Clinton's.
But the interesting part is how each is viewed by the members of their own parties. Clinton has a 16 point higher favorable rating among Democrats (79%) than Trump does among Republicans (63%) -- and Trump has a 16 point higher unfavorable rating among Republicans (36%) than Clinton does among Democrats (20%).
