Most Obvious Exit Poll Ever Says Americans Aren’t Crazy About Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton

Nov 08, 2016

After the most bitter, contentious political campaign in modern American history, voters agree: Neither of these candidates excites them.

The first exit poll data released on Election Day shows that just about 4 in 10 voters are excited about a possible Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton presidency. The exit polls, reported by CNN, also showed that 54% of people who went to the polls Tuesday approve of the job President Obama is doing.

Exit poll data reported by ABC found that 54% of voters view Clinton unfavorably, but 61% view Trump unfavorably. That's a much higher rate than the 46% and 50%, respectively, who viewed Obama and Mitt Romney unfavorably in 2012 exit polls.
