I suspect that most Republicans (including those who dislike Trump) do not rank HRC personal integrity significantly above Trump. In any case, it is fear of impeachment rather than personal integrity that usually restrains most presidents from abusing their powers. Popular presidents who have the support of the Senate and of the Supreme Court tend to get a lot more leeway.

Focusing on ranking people's personal integrity is a red-herring. There no reason to think one-dimensionally.

Hillary is less likely to use torture than Trump. Whether you call that "personal integrity" is irrelevant to the issue. The same is likely for similar constitutional violations that increase government power.

Apart from that do you think that an administration under Hillary Clinton would be substantially different than the Obama administration?

What makes you think that the threat of impeachement is a significant factor in motivating politicians?
