    Fifty percent of US voters would be embarrassed to have businessman Donald Trump as president and commander in chief of the United States, a new poll revealed on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — "Half of American voters say they'd be embarrassed to have Donald Trump as their Commander in Chief and most Americans think he doesn't have a good chance in November, but there he is still at the top of the Republican heap," Quinnipiac University Poll Assistant Director Tim Malloy said.

    Trump is still leading Republican candidates with 28 percent of votes, while his closest contender, Senator Ted Cruz, enjoys 24 percent of support, the poll found.

    At the same time, 28 percent of Republicans said they "would definitely not support Trump," while 61 percent of general voters said the billionaire does not share their values.

    Two leading Democratic candidates, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders, beat Trump in potential matchups, according to the poll.

    Moreover, 59 percent of the polled voters said Clinton has a good chance to defeat a Republican presidential contender during the 2016 election.
