A recent poll conducted in Hong Kong has revealed that the vast majority of Hong Kong people (67%) expect Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to be named President of the United States in November, while just 13% think Republican candidate Donald Trump will win. A London Business School expert on leadership has commented on the findings.
The poll, conducted by YouGov and representative of Hong Kong’s online population of adults’ aged 18-54, asked 1,000 respondents who they thought would win the election. 
Over a fifth (21%) of respondents are undecided, while more men (18%) than women (8%) can see Donald Trump being elected.
Speaking on the results, Randall S. Peterson, Academic Director – Leadership Institute and Professor of Organisational Behaviour, London Business School, said:
“In terms of strength and length of CV, Clinton makes a powerful argument. She’s been everything from US Secretary of State to US Senator, so she’s a strong candidate. She also has a history of supporting trade and human rights, both issues near and dear to Hongkonger hearts.”
“Donald Trump, for some Hongkongers could be popular since he is critical of China. However, he is critical of China over trade. Because Hong Kong has always lived on the strength of international trade, Trump is a real threat to the future prosperity of Hong Kong.”
