Tuesday's Quinnipiac Poll showed what has been the trend for many months: Donald Trump still leads the Republican campaign for presidential nomination.

However, the poll also revealed some good news for Senator Ted Cruz: he only trails Trump four points.

The poll also showed figures on how the general public feels about a Trump-versus-Hillary Clinton general campaign.

Thanks to most independents polled, Trump is viewed as more trustworthy  than Clinton. Further, half of Americans, including a fifth of Republicans, said that they would be embarassed if Trump were elected president. Only a fifth of Democrats felt that way about Clinton.

How would you feel about a Trump/Hillary general election?  Do you see either candidate as an embarrassing candidate for nomination?
