Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton's lack of likability may not be a problem for their campaigns, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll that shows a candidate's policies are more important to voters than their character.

Almost all voters agree that a presidential candidate’s character is at least somewhat important:

  • Very important: 66 percent;
  • Somewhat important: 29 percent;
  • Not important: 5 percent.


When asked which is more important, character or policies:

  • Character: 29 percent;
  • Policies: 62 percent;
  • Unsure: 9 percent.

Rasmussen also asked if voters were excited about their choice of candidate, or simply voting for the lesser of two evils.

  • Excited: 45 percent;
  • Less of two evils: 48 percent;
  • Unsure: 8 percent.

According to a Fox News poll released Tuesday, Clinton has a six-point lead on Trump nation wide. A Bloomberg poll released Wednesday puts Clinton nine points ahead of Trump.

"This poll shows movement toward Clinton with all the right groups it takes to win—including men and those without a college degree," pollster J. Ann Selzer told Bloomberg Politics. "Their alignment with Clinton is a formidable change in the algebra."

"The race sure looks like it’s a solid Clinton win, but Trump has a few advantages in enthusiasm and support," Selzer added.
