Forty-four percent of men support Trump, and 32 percent are with Clinton.
Voters in both parties remain loyal to their candidates. Seventy-eight percent of Democrats and 80 percent of Republicans say they will vote for Clinton and Trump, respectively. In general, however, voters aren’t too pleased with their options. Thirty percent of voters would feel “disgusted” if Clinton won and 42 percent would feel likewise if Trump won.
