American voters don't agree on much in 2016, but a new survey shows a plurality of registered voters think Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would each make a "poor" or "terrible" president.
A Pew Research Center survey found that 55 percent of registered voters said Trump has a "big chance" of making a serious mistake that would harm the country, and 44 percent of voters say the same about Clinton.
"Just 27 percent of registered voters say that Trump would make a good or great president, while about twice as many (55 percent) say he would be either poor or terrible (with 43 percent saying he would make a "terrible" president)," the Pew Research Center wrote. "Opinions about how Clinton might do as president are not as negative. Still, only about a third of voters (31 percent) say she would be a good or great president, while 22 percent say would be average and 45 percent think she would be a poor (12 percent) or terrible (33 percent) president."
Pew's survey found evidence that Trump and Clinton supporters have vastly different views about the direction of the country — with Trump supporters more likely to believe life is going to get worse for the next generation of Americans.
Interestingly, Republicans' feeling about their party have improved over the past two months. While just 38 percent of survey respondents held a positive view of the GOP, 82 percent of Republicans held a favorable view of their party in August — up from 69 percentage points in June.
The Pew Research Center's survey was conducted August 9-16, among 2,010 adults including 1,567 registered voters. The survey had a 2.5 percentage point margin of error among all voters surveyed and 2.8 percentage points among registered voters.
