President Trump is more frightening than ghosts, zombies and vampires — according to a new poll from a Democratic-leaning firm.

The survey, released Tuesday from Public Policy Polling, finds voters consider the commander in chief spookier than a slew of Halloween-related spooks and ghouls.

Forty-nine percent of those polled said Trump was scarier than ghosts, while 40 percent said the opposite. Trump also bested vampires, mummies, witches, zombies, and werewolves in the scare factor, by similar margins.


But the president proved no match when it comes to the devil, with 51 percent of those surveyed saying Satan was more petrifying, compared to Trump’s 36 percent.

The polling firm also found that Trump voters have more of a taste for a famously divisive Halloween treat. Candy corn had a 62 percent favorability rating among Trump supporters, while only 47 percent of those who voted for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said they appreciated the orange-colored confection.

But contempt for another seasonal staple appears to cross party lines. Forty-six percent of Trump voters and 52 percent of Clinton voters agree that pumpkin spice lattes are the pits, rating them as “unfavorable.”
