Iceland declares for Hillary
Over half of all Icelanders would vote for Hillary Clinton if they had the vote in the 2016 US presidential elections, according to a new poll.
Republican candidates clearly leave Icelanders cold, with Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders sweeping up 91% of all Icelandic votes between them.
The current Republican frontrunner, outspoken business tycoon Donald Trump, limps in at a paltry 4.4% – with other candidates barely registering on the results graph.
Clinton scores 52.7%, with Bernie Sanders getting 38.3%.
Icelandic women and more likely to support Clinton, while men are more likely to support Sanders, according to this poll conducted by Maskína. Younger voters are more attracted to Sanders, while older voters prefer Clinton.
US presidential elections take place on 8 November, just over four months after Iceland’s own vote to select a new president.
