But voters were also asked in the online survey conducted by YouGov: "Which of the following outcomes would you prefer occur on November 3, 2020? Donald Trump wins re-election or A giant meteor strikes the earth, extinguishing all human life."

Sixty-two percent of Democrats picked the meteor, while 38 percent chose a second term for Trump.

The viral Twitter account Sweet Meteor of Death, which fantasizes about the end of the world through a deadly meteor strike, praised the poll on Friday, writing "SMOD2020" or Sweet Meteor of Death 2020.

While the poll represents a small sampling of New Hampshire voters, it illustrates the degree of the party divide and contrasting feelings about Trump among Democrats.

The survey had an adjusted margin of error of 6.4 percent.
