A Pew poll released Wednesday found 51% of voters supporting Donald Trump are doing so to vote against Hillary Clinton.

That's the highest that figure has been for a Republican candidate going back to 2000, but behind the 53% of John Kerry supporters in 2004 who said they were voting against President George W. Bush.

A large number of Clinton supporters are also voting for her as a vote against Trump, 41%, but 57% said they're voting “for” Clinton.

Pew also found a rift in how Republicans view Trump based on how they voted in the primaries. Those who voted for him were 52% more likely to say he's a good role model and 45% more likely to say he's moral than those who voted for another candidate.

Those who voted for another Republican candidate were more likely to say Trump is “reckless,” has “poor judgment,” and is “hard to like.”
