Voters clearly have mixed feelings when it comes to this years presidential election. This recent Time Magazine poll shows women are more scared of the outcome of this election than men.

Time and Survey Monkey polled women on different feelings. 48% of women say they are disappointed, 46% say they are scared, 23% say they are sad, 15% say they are excited and 9% say they are satisfied.

The poll also found 53 % of women reported feeling scared after the first presidential debate last week, compared to 37% of men.
 
The poll also found that while 52% of Hillary Clinton backers said they were scared, 39% of Trump supporters felt the same way.
 
Women around Western New York say it's the selection of candidates that has them worried.
 
"The candidates that we have to choose from are not the best," said Madison Sedlor of Buffalo. "We could do a lot better. There are a lot of people who live here that I feel could do a better job than the two we have to pick from."
