The survey showed that 65 percent of German respondents answered that they would feel “afraid” if Trump were to become president of the United States, YouGov reported on Wednesday.Market research firm YouGov surveyed 2,068 German adults between October 20th and 25th, and also polled residents of the UK, France, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway.Participants were asked to choose two to three emotions from a list to describe how they would feel about a Trump presidency.More than one-third (36 percent) answered that they would be “disappointed” with Trump as president and 30 percent said they would feel “angry”.In contrast, the most common response among Germans about how they would feel if Hillary Clinton became president was “relieved” at 52 percent, followed by “optimistic” (35 percent) and “happy” (15 percent). Just 13 percent said they would be afraid if Clinton took the Oval Office.A large majority of Germans backed former Secretary of State Clinton as a candidate with 69 percent saying they would vote for her, while just 8 percent said they would cast their ballots for Donald Trump. Another 14 percent of Germans polled would not vote at all and 9 percent said they did not know how they would vote.
