"Scared." "Disaster." "Frightened." "Terrified." "Horrified." Those are the top five words respondents used when asked to describe Donald Trump becoming president, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

The good news for Trump? It isn't great, but at least the word "good" came in sixth.

The news wasn't all that much better when respondents were asked the same question about a Hillary Clinton presidency. The most frequently used word was "disaster," though "good" came in second. "Scared" "disappointed" and "hopeful" rounded out the top five.

The poll also shows just how polarizing the top two candidates for president are. When asked which candidate they would never vote for in November, 54 percent said they could never vote for Trump and 43 percent said the same for Clinton.

The poll also finds that 64 percent of those surveyed agree Trump is very or somewhat responsible for the violence that's taken place in and around his campaign rallies.

Quinnipiac's poll surveyed 1,456 registered voters from March 16-21. It has a margin of error of 2.6 percentage points.
