Poll: Nearly Half of Voters ‘Scared’ About Trump

The latest poll by NBC News/Survey Monkey has revealed that nearly 50 percent of voters are scared of Donald Trump.

The Hill reports:

Nearly half of respondents, 47 percent, said they were “scared” now that Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee, while 26 percent said they were “hopeful.”

Twenty-one percent said they were angry, 14 percent said they were excited and 16 percent were surprised.

More people are scared than hopeful about Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton becoming president as well.

More than a third of voters, 35 percent, reported being “scared” if Clinton were to win the Democratic nomination, while 29 percent would be hopeful, 22 percent would be angry, 16 percent would be excited and 7 percent would be surprised.

Clinton leads Trump by just 5 points, 49 to 44 percent, in a hypothetical general election match-up. Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders, who has vowed to fight until the party’s national convention in July, leads Trump by 13 points, 53 to 40 percent.

The online survey of 12,714 adults, including 11,089 registered voters, was conducted May 2–8 with a margin of error of 1.3 points for registered voters.
