Poll: Clinton has edge over Trump on range of issues

A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds that Americans trust Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton more than Republican leader Donald Trump to handle a wide range of issues, from immigration to health care to nominating Supreme Court justices.

Even when asked which of the two candidates would be best at "making American great" - the central promise of Trump's campaign - Americans are slightly more likely to side with Clinton.

Despite Americans' overall preference for Clinton on numerous issues, just 20 percent say she represents their own views very well on matters they care about.

But as with most issues addressed in the AP-GfK poll, the numbers for Trump are even worse: Just 15 percent of Americans say he represents their views very well.
