US elections: A view from China

In a survey released last month, Hillary Clinton was favoured over Donald Trump in mainland China.

    As election day approaches in the United States, Chinese people are paying closer attention.

    For some, it's also triggering reflection on China's one-party rule.

    In a survey released last month, Hillary Clinton was seen favourably by 37 percent of respondents in mainland China while just 22 percent saw Donald Trump favourably.

    At the same time, 35 percent of respondents in the poll conducted by the American Pew Research Centre saw Clinton unfavourably, while 40 percent had an unfavourable impression of Trump.

    China's leaders have not publicly indicated their preference. But an editorial in the state-controlled Global Times earlier this year denounced Trump as a racist and said his candidacy is proof that US-style democracy is failing.
