This Is the No. 1 Word That Comes to Mind When People Think of Hillary Clinton

It's not good news for her.

The top word that people associate with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “liar,” according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The second and third options, "dishonest" and "untrustworthy," aren’t much better, demonstrating that the email scandal and perhaps other past controversies are taking their toll on Clinton, though she still leads the pack among the other Democrats seeking the party's presidential nomination.

The poll surveyed 1,563 registered voters nationally. On the question, “What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Hillary Clinton?" the top choice was “liar,” drawing 178 mentions. “Dishonest” was second with 123 mentions and “untrustworthy” received 93.

The fourth and fifth options are better news for Clinton: “experience” got 82 mentions and "strong" got 59.

Here's the full word list for Clinton, counting only words that were mentioned at least five times.
