    US Democratic party supporters believe that their respective party’s nominee will make a good presidenе more than Republican part ones.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Democrats in the United States, by a 71 percent to 59 percent margin over Republicans, believe that their respective party’s nominee will make a good president, according to a poll by the Gallup organization released on Monday.

    "While this is similar to what Gallup found in May, the latest reading is the first since Hillary Clinton effectively clinched the Democratic nomination," the release explained. In May, US Senator Bernie Sanders still had an outside chance of defeating Clinton.

    Meanwhile, confidence that presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump would make a good president has fallen in recent months, the poll noted.

    Between mid-April and mid-May, a period in which Trump became the only remaining Republican candidate and subsequently secured enough delegates to win the nomination, confidence of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents in Trump’s presidential mettle fell from 68 percent to 56 percent, the poll revealed.

    The poll concluded that the narrowing of each of the two major party's fields to a single presidential candidate seems so far to have done more harm to Republicans' views of the field than to Democrats'.
