Poll shows that many US voters will support a candidate in the presidential election because they dislike the other.
Feelings of frustration, disgust and fear are mounting among US voters, a new poll has found, as many Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump supporters say their presidential pick is driven by a dislike of the other candidate.
The Pew Research Center survey, which was released on Wednesday, found that far more respondents felt frustrated (57 percent), disgusted (55 percent) or scared (43 percent) than interested (31 percent), optimistic (15 percent) or excited (just 10 percent).
Trump and Clinton supporters expressed similar levels of frustration, 55 percent and 53 percent respectively, and differed little in their feelings of disgust, 53 percent and 48 percent.
