Dr. Ben Carson currently leads over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton one year before the presidential election day, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released Wednesday.

Clinton's lead among women has dropped as American voters pick Carson over the Democrat by 50-40 percent. Women polled went 45 percent for Carson and 44 percent for Clinton, while men back the Republican 55-35 percent.

Carson rates high in the honesty category, with a 62-24 percent rating, and gets the backing by American voters who believe he cares about their problems by 56-32 percent.

But voters say by 50-38 percent that Carson does not have the experience to be president on the United States.

Clinton, a Chappaqua resident, has the lowest honesty rating, as voters say 60-36 percent that she is not honest and trustworthy. Voters also do not believe that Donald Trump is honest, with a 58-38 percent vote that he is untrustworthy.

Overall, Trump, who owns an estate in Bedford, gets 24 percent of Republican votes, with Carson at 23 percent, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 14 percent, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at 13 percent, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 4 percent, according to the poll. No other candidate tops 3 percent, with 9 percent undecided, and 63 percent who might change their mind.

Clinton gets 53 percent of Democrats, with 35 percent for Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, 9 percent undecided and 44 percent who might change their mind.
