Americans don't necessarily believe Vice President Mike Pence would make a better president than President Trump, according to a new poll.

Rasmussen found that 26 percent of voters believe Pence would do a better job than Trump, and 45 percent disagree, saying the vice president would not be a better commander-in-chief than the president.

When asked whether Pence would make a better president than Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, 43 percent agreed and said the current vice president would do a better job.

Fifty percent, meanwhile, think Clinton would make a better chief executive than Pence.

Twelve percent of voters also said reporters would attempt to help Pence pass his agenda when asked if the media would try to assist Pence, block his agenda or report in an unbiased manner if he were president.

Ten percent, meanwhile, said they believe reporters are trying to help Trump pass his agenda, compared to 48 percent who said in June 2010 the media was trying to assist former President Obama.

Rasmussen polled 1,000 likely voters from July 16 to July 17.
