Nearly six in 10 voters say former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s natural instincts lean more toward hiding the truth, and a third say they lean more toward telling the truth, a new poll said.

Fifty-eight percent of voters said they believe Mrs. Clinton’s “natural instincts lean toward hiding the truth,” and 33 percent said they believe her natural instincts lean toward telling the truth, said a Fox News poll released Thursday.

Among Democratic primary voters, 61 percent said her natural instincts lean toward telling the truth, while 29 percent of Democrats said she’s more prone to hide the truth.

Forty-seven percent of voters overall said Congress should continue to investigate her handling of the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi that claimed the lives of four Americans, while 49 percent said Congress should move on.

Mrs. Clinton, a 2016 presidential candidate, was still the first choice of 59 percent of Democratic primary voters, with Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont in second at 19 percent and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who has not yet indicated his plans, in third at 8 percent.

Last month, Mrs. Clinton was at 61 percent to Mr. Sanders’ 15 percent and Mr. Biden’s 11 percent.

The survey of 1,019 registered voters was taken from July 13-15 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent for the smaller subset of Democratic primary voters.
