July 25, 2016 -- A new University of Delaware Center for Political Communication survey finds that 46% of registered voters would vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and 42% would vote for Republican candidate Donald Trump, if the presidential election were being held today. The nationally representative telephone survey, conducted on July 21-24, 2016, interviewed 1,000 adult U.S. respondents by landline and cell phone, including 818 registered voters.
Almost half of all respondents (47%) say they feel "disgusted" about the Republican Party's nomination of Trump. This is the most common feeling about Trump's nomination, followed by "afraid" (42%), "hopeful" (40%), "proud" (31%), "angry" (31%), and "enthusiastic" (30%). Among Republicans, 82% feel hopeful and 69% feel proud, versus only 14% who feel disgusted or afraid. Meanwhile, 69% of Democrats feel disgusted and 65% feel afraid, whereas only 14% feel hopeful and 7% feel proud.

The National Agenda Opinion Project research was funded by the University of Delaware's Center for Political Communication (CPC) and the William P. Frank Foundation. The study was supervised by the CPC's Director, Paul Brewer, a professor in the Departments of Communication and Political Science & International Relations.
Results are based on telephone interviews with a representative national sample of 1,000 adult U.S. residents. Telephone interviews were conducted by landline (500) and cell phone (500, including 278 without a landline phone). The survey was conducted from July 21-24, 2016, by Princeton Survey Research Associates International. The survey included one day of interviews conducted before Trump's nomination acceptance speech and two days of interviews conducted after Clinton announced her selection of Tim Kaine as her vice presidential running mate. Statistical results are weighted to correct known demographic discrepancies. The margin of sampling error for the complete set of weighted data is ± 4.0 percentage points.
Readers should be aware that in addition to sampling error, question wording and practical difficulties in conducting surveys can introduce error or bias into the findings of public opinion polls.
