Washington, July 15 (RHC)-- The vast majority of Americans say they feel afraid if one of the presumptive U.S. presidential nominees — Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton — is elected to the White House. The Associated Press-GfK poll released Thursday found that 81 percent of U.S. voters were worried by the idea of a Clinton or Trump presidency.
The poll also shows that 75 percent of the participants said their only motivation to vote in the November presidential election was to prevent Clinton or Trump from entering the White House.
Despite the general unpopularity, hypothetical head to head match-ups between the two candidates have recently seen Trump expanding his lead over Clinton. The New York businessman topped Clinton 44 percent to 37 percent in a Rasmussen Reports poll that was released Thursday.
This is the third week in a row that Trump comes out on top in the weekly poll. This is also Trump’s highest level of national support in the survey since October.
