Washington, May 11 (RHC)-- Polls show that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are more unpopular with voters than the candidates in any of the past 10 White House matchups.
About half of U.S. voters are “scared” that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump might be elected as the U.S. president while more than third are afraid about Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton becoming president.
The poll found that 21 percent said they were angry, 14 percent said they were excited and 16 percent were surprised. More people are scared than hopeful about Clinton becoming president as well. Thirty-five 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 seven percent would be surprised.
Clinton leads Trump by just 5 points, 49 to 44 percent, in a hypothetical general election match-up. Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders, who has vowed to fight until the party's national convention in July, leads Trump by 13 points, 53 to 40 percent.
