A poll released Thursday by Quinnipiac University found that Hillary Clinton is a liar, Donald Trump is arrogant and Jeb Bush is, well, a Bush.

In a release, liar is the word that voters answered frequently in an open-ended question about Clinton, while voters called Trump arrogant and Bush was named a member of his family.

The poll also found that Vice President Joe Biden has an edge over former Secretary of State Clinton when pitted against the Republican contenders for president.

He added: “On the Democratic side, Secretary Hillary Clinton continues her slide while Sen. Bernie Sanders continues to narrow the gap,” Malloy added. “But the real news is the man who isn’t there – yet. Vice President Joseph Biden has the best appeal in general election matchups against top Republicans.”

Per the poll:

Donald Trump leads the crowded Republican pack with 28 percent, up from 20 percent in a July 30 national survey by the independent Quinnipiac University. This is the highest tally and widest margin for any Republican so far in this election. Ben Carson has 12 percent, with 7 percent each for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida. No other Republican tops 6 percent and 11 percent are undecided.

Clinton leads the Democratic field with 45 percent, down from 55 percent July 30, with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 22 percent and Biden at 18 percent. No other candidate tops 1 percent with 11 percent undecided. This is Sanders’ highest tally and closest margin.

Additionally, Trump and Clinton suffer from being deemed most dishonest. The poll surveyed 1,563 people across the country.
