How much of a difference does it make in the polls if a presidential candidates has a negative reputation? We're asking you on today's Say What?!

"For me, there wouldn't be a difference," said Jerrick Javellana.

"All we really hear about is the negative things, so that's all we really think about," Mackenzie McLain.

"There are people who only listen to the media and they will believe everything they hear in the media. There are some people, a smaller crowd, that will actually fact check," said Joaquin Silva.

In terms of who has the worst reputation, which candidate do you think that would be?

"They're targeting Donald Trump, really," said Javellana.

"I would say it's between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton," said McLain.

"Clinton has the worst reputation, because as much of a bad reputation Trump is getting, there's a lot of people who support him, they like what he says and they like what he stands for," said Silva.

Do you think there's anything each candidate can do to help improve their reputation?

"It's impossible. They won't be able to remove those negative connotations. It's politics, there will always be negative stuff one way or another," said Javellana.

"They would have to change a lot of things about how they handled things, the things that they said, the things that they did in order to change the attention they got," said McLain.

"People just don't like what he has to say, but he won't change, that's part of his personality, there's nothing he can do to fix that. Clinton, I don't think people trust Clinton. I don't think she can stop lying," said Silva.
