Two new polls taken by well-known media companies have told a divergent story about how voters view Hillary Clinton, CNN reports, as the former secretary of state continues her Democratic presidential campaign.

The polls, one from CBS News/New York Times, and the other, from NBC News/Wall Street Journal, share data similarities that "reveal the real story," CNN said, noting shifting "favorability" ratings that have occurred after her State Department email scandal broke and then, later, after it had time to die down.

"Essentially, the NBC News/Wall Street Journal analysis is comparing Clinton's ratings now to those just before the story broke, while the CBS/New York Times poll is looking at Clinton's ratings now compared to the controversy's immediate aftermath," CNN reported of discrepancies.

That said, voters are not yet sold on Clinton, CNN reported, as "a significant share of Americans have an unfavorable view of Hillary Clinton, and a sizable number have questions about her honesty."

Some good news for the former first lady emerged Thursday, when a new Quinnipiac poll found her the favorite among Democrats in Iowa, which holds the nation's first primary caucus.

In a survey of likely Iowa Democratic caucus-goers, Clinton has the support of 60 percent, down just one point from a similar survey taken in late February, long before her email controversy emerged, Politico said.

The Quinnipiac survey, which described Clinton's "early lock" on Iowa, also found that Iowans believe Clinton is "honest and trustworthy" by a 4 to 1 margin, Politico reported.

"One thing is obvious about Iowa Democratic Caucus participants: They are loyal as the day is long, at least when it comes to Hillary Clinton," Peter Brown, who serves as the poll's assistant director, told Politico.

By contrast, a poll of all Iowa voters, not simply Democratic caucus participants, found that 49 percent did not believe she was "honest or trustworthy," Politico reported.
