Mobile is the new way to survey Americans

Survey stats: We polled 1000 Americans in under two hours after the South Carolina Primaries and prior to Super Tuesday.

What we discovered: While Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have commanding leads in their respective parties – most voters have trust issues with each candidate.
Most surprising:  28% of Independents believe Bernie Sanders would do the best job as President, 26% Trump, and 17% Clinton.

We surveyed over 1000 Americans via their mobile phone who have been following the election for the past two weeks to find out:

  • Which candidate aligns with your values?
  • What is your level of trust with each candidate?
  • Who would you vote for today to win your party’s nomination?
  • Who would do the best job as President of the United States?

Here are the results:
