Poll: Trump More Trusted Than Clinton To Handle Terror Situation
Americans would have more confidence in presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump to handle a terrorist situation like the Pulse night club shooting than Democratic hopeful Hillary Clinton, a new Bloomberg politics poll finds.
The survey, released late Wednesday, shows Trump beating Clinton 45-41 when on the issue of dealing with a terror situation like the one in Orlando last Sunday.
Sixty-four percent of likely voters also believe that Trump will “say more things that upset Republicans,” and among likely Republican voters, 69 percent say he is good for the party.
The poll also found that when asking Trump supporters who they think would be the “best pick” for Trump’s vice president, the most popular was former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, taking 29 percent of the vote.
When it comes to Clinton, only 20 percent of likely voters think that she would change the way Washington “does business,” in comparison to 69 percent of Trump supporters who think he would.
Election aside, the study revealed that 49 percent of Americans believe that their children will have a lower standard of living then their parents do today.
Clinton leads Trump 44.1-38.3 according to Real Clear Politics polling average.
The Bloomberg poll surveyed 1,000 adults from June 10-13 and has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.1 percentage points.
