    About 81 percent of likely voters who support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump say they believe life in the US has gotten worse in the past half century for people like them in contrast to Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s backers, according to a poll by the Pew Research Center.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Differences in outlook notwithstanding, numerous voters remain skeptical that either candidate would make a good president, according to the survey.

    "Supporters of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump disagree on a range of policy issues, from terrorism to free trade. Yet, they also have more fundamental differences over long-term changes in the country and the next generation’s future prospects," a Thursday press release explaining the poll said.

    Most Clinton supporters take the opposite view, with 59 percent saying life for people like them has gotten better over the past half-century, the poll revealed.

    Looking toward the future, the survey found that 68 percent of Trump supporters say life for the next generation will be worse than today, despite their candidate’s pledge to "make America great again."

    In contrast, about a third of Clinton supporters expect life to deteriorate for today’s children, the survey noted.
