Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both have an honesty problem: New Quinnipiac poll results find that 60 percent of voters say Clinton can't be trusted, and 59 percent feel the same about Trump. But that hasn't stopped them from leading their respective parties' primary races — for months.

Among the other candidates for whom these questions were asked, Bernie Sanders gets the best honesty grades, with 59 percent saying he is trustworthy. Ben Carson, at 53 percent, was the only other contender to top 50 percent.
