Both Presidential Candidates are Disliked. Just like in 2016.

Once again we asked to choose between the lesser of two evils:

Polling suggests that this November’s election could become only the second presidential contest in the history of modern polling in which both candidates are seen negatively by most voters. The other was just four years ago, when pre-election surveys and exit polls found that both Mr. Trump and his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, were disliked by a majority of voters.

The fact that so many Americans in both the last election and this one have expressed an aversion to each of the major candidates speaks to the heavy polarization that now defines the national electorate — not to mention the wholesale disillusionment many voters feel with the political system.
