AP: ‘Fear Factor: Americans Scared Of Their Presidential Options’

Washington (AP)

The vast majority of Americans say they are afraid of at least one of the two major candidates for president winning the White House, a remarkable finding that reflects an unsettled nation unhappy with its choice.

A new AP-GfK poll finds that 81 percent of Americans say they would feel afraid following the election of one of the two polarizing politicians: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.

That includes a quarter who say it doesn't matter who wins: they're scared of both.

Three-quarters of voters say their pick for president is motivated by a desire to cast their Election Day ballot against Clinton or Trump, more than those who say they're voting for the candidate who shares their positions on the issues or is the most qualified to hold the office.
