Which presidential candidates are you least afraid of?
A new poll finds that, while Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are the most hated political figures in America, there are plenty of people who say Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the least hated.
In a new CNN/ORC poll released on Thursday, the two top two contenders for the 2016 Republican nomination are each viewed with fear by 18 percent of voters nationwide.
While that number is lower than Trump’s percentage in the past, it’s still the highest of any Republican candidate in the poll, and the highest among the top three contenders.
In fact, Trump and Cruz both have a net negative rating among Republicans.
Only 11 percent of Republicans have a positive view of Trump, and only 9 percent have a negative view of Cruz.
Cruz also has a net positive rating among GOP voters in this poll, with a net rating of minus-18 percent.
But among Democrats, Trump is viewed with more negative views, with net negative ratings of minus 14 percent and minus-24 percent, respectively.
“Both of these candidates are perceived as the two most dangerous to America, and we’re seeing that in the polls,” said Dan Schnur, director of CNN/ ORC’s Opinion Research.
“There is not much public support for either of them.
There is not a great deal of confidence in either of these two candidates to deal with the problems we face.
So when you have a candidate that is perceived to be so dangerous, it has a very real impact on the way the American people vote.”
And in the end, there’s not much support for the third GOP contender, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
The poll finds Rubio, who was also among the first GOP candidates to endorse Trump in July, with support of 16 percent of GOP voters nationwide, which is down from 22 percent in July.
“Rubio has made it clear he is not interested in supporting a third candidate, but he’s not a Republican.
And his campaign has focused its resources on attacking Trump,” Schnur said.
“He is trying to attack Trump on the same level that Trump has attacked him.
There’s little support for Rubio as a serious candidate, even though he is an anti-establishment, pro-life Republican.”
But even in this polarized political environment, there is something to be said for the idea of a strong, bold, and compassionate conservative.” “
The fact that there are so many Republicans who do not want him as their nominee shows that there is a large and growing segment of the American public who does not want to be governed by someone like Trump.”
But even in this polarized political environment, there is something to be said for the idea of a strong, bold, and compassionate conservative.
“The CNN/orchestrated poll, conducted from April 24 through May 2 among 1,005 registered voters nationwide and including 1,003 Republicans, 1,000 Democrats, and 1,001 independents, was conducted online by CNN and ORC International for CNN.
The poll was conducted under the joint direction of CNN Analytics, SurveyMonkey, and Edison Research.
The survey has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
The CNN poll also asked voters if they prefer either Trump or Clinton to be president in November.
Only 22 percent of respondents said Trump, while 27 percent said Clinton.
A plurality, 37 percent, said they prefer Clinton to Trump, but that the Republican candidate does not have enough support to overcome Democratic Party support.
The rest, 26 percent, chose Cruz, 19 percent chose Trump, 15 percent chose Rubio, 12 percent chose Sen. Ted Cruz (R.-Texas), and 9 percent chose former Arkansas Gov.
Mike Huckabee (R.).
In the end of the day, a plurality of voters say they will cast a ballot for one of the four Republican candidates in November, while 42 percent say they’ll cast a vote for either Trump, Cruz, Rubio, or Huckabee.
Of the GOP voters who will choose to vote for one candidate, 37.5 percent say the choices of Trump or Cruz will win them over.
That said, Schnur believes that the general public does not feel the same way about Trump as it does about Cruz. “
While the Republican Party’s nominee has a strong following in this country, the candidates in the Republican field have not shown much traction with the general electorate,” Schnurs said.

“For the record, Trump’s numbers are very strong among Republican voters.
He’s had a lot of support from GOP voters,” SchnUR said.
In addition to the CNN/Orchestrations poll, CNN/ SurveyMonemonster conducted a poll of 3,500 adults nationwide on May 1 through May 3, with 2,500 Republicans and 1.5 million Democrats.
The margin of error is plus or plus 2 percentage points and is based on the probability of winning an average of 1,500 valid
