Donald Trump hasn’t led a single major national public poll since locking up the Republican nomination in mid-May, Save Jerseyans.

A new Monmouth University Poll out Monday sheds some light onto why that might be.

Almost half of all voters (49%) interviewed said it was “very important” to deny Trump a term as president; 31% aren’t worried. A relatively high but nevertheless significantly smaller number of voters (41%) feel similarly disposed to box-out Hillary Clinton whereas 35% aren’t spooked by here.

Among those who are either undecided or leaning toward voting third party? 48% say it’s critical to stop the Donald while 32% say the same about former Secretary Clinton.

“About one in seven voters would like to cast their ballot for a third party candidate. The fear of either Clinton or Trump getting into the White House, though, may lead some to hold their noses and vote for the other major party nominee,” explained Patrick Murray, the director of the Monmouth poll. “And right now, a Trump victory appears to be the more troubling outcome for these voters.”
