Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said Monday that both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the major presidential candidates for the 2016 cycle, are quite disliked by voters.

“It’s been an exciting and unprecedented kind of campaign this year, and unfortunately, the way it’s turned out, both choices in the major parties are quite unpopular,” Carter said.


However, the 91-year-old, now a worldwide ambassador for Habitat for Humanity, said he will definitely vote for whom he thinks better qualified — Democratic nominee Clinton.

He made the remarks with the Associated Press on the site of a Habitat for Humanity construction project in Memphis, Tennessee.

“Everybody knows that I’m a Democrat, and I’ll be voting Democratic,” he added, while refusing to comment on Republican nominee Trump.

Carter, who has battled cancer in the past year, also said he doesn’t like to advocate for particular issues because he works equally with the two main parties and people of various backgrounds in his role with the home-building charity.


Multiple nationwide polls have shown that Clinton is unpopular with voters, Trump currently even more so.

Since there are some 80 days to go before the election scheduled for Nov. 8, it is suspected that time is running out on the New York billionaire amid high controversy and rising criticism.
