Over the course of the campaign American's views of the top three candidates have changed some. According to a Gallup poll done in late April, here are some of the qualities associated with each:
John McCain-he's "too old, he's a "good man–likable," he would give the country more of the same-be another George Bush, and he has a "good military background." And the number of people who view him favorably are about equal to the number who don't like him.
When it comes to Hillary Clinton, the most common perceptions are that she is dishonest or not trustworthy, past scandals or baggage associated with her husband, the former president, that she is qualified, capable, and strong.
