Nearly all supporters of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton say they are “anxious” about the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency.

According to the latest ABC poll of likely voters, 93 percent of Clinton supporters said that the idea of a Trump presidency makes them “anxious. And 84 percent say it makes them “very anxious.”

Among all likely voters in the survey, 61 percent say they are anxious about the possibility of Trump as president while 56 percent say they are anxious about Clinton becoming president.

The poll shows that 48 percent of likely voters support Clinton while 42 percent favor Trump. Gary Johnson has five percent support and Jill Stein only has one percent.

The ABC poll also singles out “nonwhites” as a group, pointing out that President Obama won 80 percent of nonwhites in 2008 and 82 percent in 2012.

Clinton, however, is only winning the group by 68 percent, while Trump is earning 20 percent.

The poll shows that nonwhites who aren’t black or Hispanic are splitting evenly between Trump and Clinton — 42-42 percent.

Obama won nonwhites who weren’t black or Hispanic a massive margin against Mitt Romney in 2012 — 66-31 percent.

The poll was conducted among a random national sample of 1,135 likely voters with a margin of sampling error of 3 points. Partisan divisions are 36-29-29 percent, Democrats-Republicans-independents.
