Finally a poll where there is little to fight over. The latest results from the Morning Consult/POLITICO Exit Poll found some common ground among voters concerning Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. The Electorate finds both Hillary and The Donald are stubborn and that neither candidate is “easy to like.”

When asked about more than three dozen characteristics early voters and those who headed to the polls today chose “stubborn” as one of the top attributes for both candidates. Eighty-one percent of voters said Trump was stubborn, making it the top characteristic selected for him. Sixty percent said Clinton was stubborn.

The key takeaways about Clinton were:

  • Voters Describe Clinton as ‘Knowledgeable,’ ‘Stubborn’: When asked how voters feel about Clinton, voters said: Knowledgeable (68%), Stubborn (60%), Changes Her Mind (59%), Has the Right Experience (57%), Not Willing to Admit Mistakes (56%), Flip-Flops (56%)
  • Voters Do Not  Think Clinton Is ‘Honest,’ ‘Easy to Like’: When asked how they would not describe Clinton, voters said: Too Conservative (74%), Honest (62%), Sexist (62%), Does Not Know Enough About Issues (61%), Racist (61%), Easy to Like (60%)

It wasn’t much different with Trump:

  • Voters Describe Trump as ‘Stubborn,’ ‘Says What He Believes’ : When asked how voters feel about Trump, voters said: Stubborn (81%), Arrogant (78%), Says What He Believes (68%), Reckless (60%), Sexist (59%), Changes His Mind (59%)
  • Voters Do Not  Think Trump is “Easy to Like,’ ‘Moral’: When asked how they would not describe Trump, voters said: Too Liberal (73%), Easy To Like (67%), Makes Me Proud (63%), Too Conservative (63%), Has the Right Experience (59%), Moral (59%)

The Common Ground is that both Hillary and The Donald are stubborn and not easy to like. The differences are that Hillary is Knowledgeable, but not honest. Trump Says what he believes, but isn’t moral.

No wonder these two remain the two most unpopular presidential candidates ever.
