Fewer than half of Americans agree that President Donald Trump or any of the current top three Democratic presidential contenders have the personality and leadership qualities that a president should possess. Of the four politicians, Joe Biden (49%) and Bernie Sanders (44%) hold an edge over Elizabeth Warren (39%) and Trump (38%) when it comes to possessing presidential personality and leadership traits.

These findings mark a departure from comparable past data when candidates’ personalities and leadership qualities were largely viewed in a more positive light. For example, when Gallup asked the same question of six leading presidential contenders in November 2007, majorities of Americans thought that four of them — Hillary Clinton (60%), Rudy Giuliani (59%), Barack Obama (56%) and John Edwards (51%) — had the personality and leadership qualities a president should have.
