American public unenthusiastic about any Presidential candidate


With nine months to go before the presidential election in America a report by the Pew Research Center suggests that none of the candidates are received with any great enthusiasm by the public.

Democrat Hillary Clinton comes out of the research with the best score, but only marginally so. She gets a 34% great or good rating, but 44% think she would be poor or terrible. Republican Donald Trump gets a 52% rating for poor or terrible and 31% rating as great or good. Democrat Bernie Sanders get a 21% negative rating and 35% positive rating. After that the rest of the candidates tail off with Republican Jeb Bush getting a 42% negative rating and only 17% positive rating.

The full details of the report can be found here.

The presidential election takes place on 8th November and the new president will be inaugurated in January 2017.
