A new poll has revealed that the American public finds presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump even less likable than Nickelback. That's gotta hurt.

The poll was conducted by Public Polling Policy, and also found that the Donald is not only liked less than Nickelback, but also lice, jury duty, and root canals. Notably, the group who was polled said that they had a higher opinion of Trump than hemorrhoids and cockroaches. Congrats to Trump.

Public Polling Policy also asked Trump supporters about some of the billionaire's favorite conspiracy theories in the same poll, which revealed that a whole lot of Trump fans think that president Obama was not born in the United States: only 23 percent of Trump's supporters think that the president was born on U.S. soil. Further, 24 percent believe that the recently deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was murdered, with 42 percent believing he died naturally, and a whopping 34 percent who just weren't sure.

But despite the fact that Trump is loathed by the general public (Public Polling Policy found that only 34 percent of voters favor him) and loves conspiracy theories, he barely trails Democratic Party front-runner Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head race. The poll found that pitted against one another, Clinton leads with 47 percent, leaving Trump trailing by six percentage points with 41 percent. 

The clear takeaway from the poll is that Trump isn't going to to his campaign any favors if he decides to incorporate Nickelback songs into his rally soundtrack.
