    Just 33 percent of US voters believe the terms "honest and trustworthy" apply to Hilary Clinton, the US Democratic Party presidential nominee, polling organization Gallup found on Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — "Honest and trustworthy" was one of 11 characteristics of the presidential candidate assessed by Gallup. Clinton's achieved her highest rating of 69 percent for having "the experience it takes to be president," in which her opponent Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump achieved only 29 percent, according to the poll.

    Trump was believed to be "honest and trustworthy" by 35 percent of voters.

    Clinton achieved better results than Trump in five categories out of the 11 tested. Her perceived advantages include being likable, displaying good judgment in a crisis, managing the government effectively and caring about the needs of people.

    At present, neither candidate is believed to be able to bring about the changes the country needs, with both Clinton and Trump scoring 41 percent for the category in the poll.

    The first presidential debate will be held on September 26 at Hofstra University in Long Island, with the US presidential election scheduled for November 8.

    The data comes as part of Gallup's poll, conducted between September 14 and 18, with the participation of 1,033 US residents.
