     A new Zogby Analytics Interactive survey of 1,003 Chinese Business Leaders, conducted between 6/17/16 - 6/22/16 with a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points, shows Chinese Business Leaders favor the presumptive Republican nominee slightly more than his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

     We asked respondents, "Here is a list of names, please tell me if your overall impression is Very Favorable, Somewhat Favorable, Somewhat Unfavorable, Very Unfavorable, or you are Not Familiar Enough to make a judgment-Donald Trump".

     When it comes to the intensity of each candidate's favorability rating, Hillary Clinton edges Donald Trump among Chinese Business Leaders, with 26% of Chinese Business Leaders surveyed saying they are very favorable of Clinton, while 23% of them are very favorable of Trump. When the options of very favorable and somewhat favorable are combined, Donald Trump's overall favorability rating is higher at 74% compared to Hillary Clinton's overall favorability rating at 70%. Regarding each candidate's unfavorable rating, more Chinese Business Leaders are unfavorable (28%) of Hillary Clinton--very unfavorable (8%) and somewhat unfavorable (20%), compared to 19% of Chinese Business Leaders who are unfavorable of Donald Trump--very unfavorable (4%) and somewhat unfavorable (15%).

     Such impressive numbers among the Chinese business community might be explained by the fact that Donald Trump has had successful business ventures around the world and he was a popular reality star, while Hillary Clinton is considered to be a Wall St. friendly candidate, something her Democratic rival, Bernie Sanders, has mentioned on many occasions.
