Washington (AP) A new Associated Press-Yahoo poll suggests Hillary Clinton is suffering more than Barack Obama from their bruising presidential campaign.

Democratic voters no longer see her as the party's strongest contender for the White House.

Clinton, who has been widely known since the early 1990s, has been less able to change people's views of her. And when those views have shifted, it's hurt her more than helped.

Clinton's ratings for being honest, likable, ethical and refreshing have fallen since January, and Obama scores higher than she does in all those categories.

Still, 15 percent of the voters being tracked in the continuing AP-Yahoo poll erroneously think Obama is a muslim, thanks in part to disinformation widely spread on the internet.
