Donald Trump: Poll Says 50% of Americans Would be Embarrassed If He Became President

poll from Quinnipiac University suggests that Republican frontrunner and real estate mogul Donald Trump isn't quite as popular with the rest of the country as he is within the GOP: 50% of U.S. voters would be embarrassed if Trump were president, the poll found.

On the flip side, the poll found that 23% of U.S. voters would be proud if Trump were president.

Those answers are strikingly different from responses to similar questions about Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton. Thirty-five percent of voters said they would be embarrassed if Clinton were president; 33% said they would be proud.

The poll also showed that despite his support from the GOP, Trump is still very divisive within his own party: 28% of Republican voters say they "would definitely not support" Trump as the nominee.
