>percent a favorable opinion, and 21 percent no opinion.


>Nor are its potential presidential candidates highly regarded.

>Patrick J. Buchanan draws 6 percent of the vote if matched against

>votes mainly from Bush and narrows Bush's lead over the Democrat.


>Buchanan is viewed unfavorably by 54 percent of the voters, and

>favorably by 10 percent.


>But that is not nearly as negative as the view held about Donald J.

>Trump, the New York real estate magnate who has just joined the

>Reform Party and says he will seek its nomination if he believes he

>can win the presidency. Just 7 percent of Americans have a favorable
