A new poll out Wednesday asked respondents to use one word to describe the potential term of the Democratic and Republican Party presidential frontrunners — and the feedback came back fairly negative.

For GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, the term most associated with his potential presidency was “scared” by a landslide, the Quinnipiac University survey found. A full 117 people used that word.

The next most frequent words used were “disaster” (46), “frightened” (45), “terrified” (45) , and “horrified” (42).

The first listed positive word associated with a Trump presidency was “good,” used by 36 respondents.

For Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, the results were better — but not by much.

The most frequently used word to describe the thought of a Clinton presidency was “disaster,” which was said by 68 people. “Good” was the second-most common word and was listed by 51 people. Just four of the top 10 words used to describe a Clinton presidency were positive.

Quinnipiac only listed responses that were used by five or more people. The university said it surveyed 1,451 registered voters overall.
