Q-poll v. Marist poll: Hours after Quinnipiac Poll came out showing Trump up by a statistically insignificant 43 to 41 percent lead over Clinton, the Marist Poll was out showing Clinton 9 points up 45-36. Main difference? Clinton was less disliked in the NBC/Marist survey than the Q-poll. In Marist, she was viewed unfavorably by 55% and favorably by 39% (compared with 62% and 29%positive ratings for Trump). In the Q-poll, Clinton’s ratings were 65% negative and 31% positive. (and Trump who viewed less unfavorably, with 57% disapproving of him, 38% viewing him positively). Either way, both Clinton and Trump’s favorables are deeply underwater.
