GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump won’t even release his tax returns, yet voters still think he’s more transparent than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Fifty-four percent of likely voters said Trump is transparent, compared to 37 percent who said the same of Clinton.

In the past week, Clinton’s campaign has tried to position her as transparent, after she was accused of withholding information in the wake of her Sept. 11 “medical episode.” The campaign first claimed she was overheated, but after video surfaced of the candidate appearing unable to stand on her own, the campaign said she had been diagnosed with pneumonia the previous Friday.

This was yet another example of the campaign appearing to lie first before telling the truth. In the days since, the campaign has tried to point out that Clinton has released more medical records than Trump and that they would release more soon.

But this week, both candidates released the results of their physicals, complete with vital signs (and Trump’s testosterone level, if you were wondering).

As her health records were discussed, Clinton and her campaign tried to turn the tables on Trump and ask why he hadn’t released his tax returns, something Clinton has already done.

Apparently, that line isn’t sticking, as voters still find Trump more transparent than Clinton.
