President Trump
A Quinnipiac University poll released today shows GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump maintaining his lead in the Republican field with 28% support. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz came in close behind with 24%.

Also according to this survey, Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton currently holds a thin lead over the real estate mogul, 47% to 40%.

It should be noted that the results of this particular Quinnipiac University poll exposed a bit of bias on its part: It reported that 63% of American voters say Clinton has “the right kind of experience to be president,” while 67% reported Donald Trump does not.

Those surveyed were also asked another speculative question: Would they be embarrassed or proud to have President Trump leading the country?

The answer?

For republicans, 44% would be proud to have Trump in the White House – twice as many GOP voters who would be embarrassed (21%). Unsurprisingly, only 4% of Democrats and 20% of independents would be proud to have Trump as president.

Among registered voters overall, 50% said they would be embarrassed to have Trump as president, including 20% of Republicans, 47% of independents, and 82% of Dems.

Conversely, 23% of overall voters said they would be proud to have Trump as president. Twenty-four percent said they didn’t care one way or another.

“Half of American voters say they’d be embarrassed to have Donald Trump as their commander-in-chief, and most Americans think he doesn’t have a good chance in November, but there he is still at the top of the Republican heap,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll.
