AP-GfK Poll: Americans overwhelmingly view Trump negatively


For Americans of nearly every race, gender, political persuasion and location, disdain for Donald Trump runs deep: That's according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll that shows the Republican front-runner saddled with unprecedented unpopularity.

Seven in 10 Americans, including close to half of Republican voters, have an unfavorable view of Trump. It's an opinion shared by majorities of men and women; young and old; conservatives, moderates and liberals; and whites, Hispanics and blacks.

Even in the South, a region where Trump has won decisively during the GOP primaries, close to 70 percent of Americans view him unfavorably. And among whites without a college education, one of Trump's most loyal voting blocs, 55 percent have a negative opinion.

However, despite public opinion on the billionaire, Trump remains as a frontrunning candidate in the Republican race. His closest competition, Ted Cruz, trails behind despite a big win in Wisconsin.
