A poll by US researchers has found if Australians and New Zealanders could vote in the American presidential election they would overwhelmingly choose Hillary Clinton.

The poll, published in the Washington Post, found 76 per cent of Australians and Kiwis would cast their ballot for the former US secretary of state.

Australia and New Zealand, however, are not the most anti-Donald Trump nations on Earth.

A whopping 97 per cent of Mexicans polled supported Clinton with just three per cent for Mr Trump.

It is not a surprise considering Mr Trump's aggressive stance and inflammatory comments about Mexican illegal immigrants and desire to build a wall along the US-Mexican border and make Mexico pay for it.

Germans are next in the anti-Trump camp, with 88 per cent supporting Clinton while France is close behind with 86 per cent backing her.

Then Canada with 78 per cent choosing Mrs Clinton.

The United Kingdom, not deterred by their Brexit controversy, also have a bit of a soft spot for Mr Trump apparently with 73 per cent support for Mrs Clinton.

If things don't work out for Mr Trump, he could move to Moscow where his appeal is sky high.

The real estate mogul's peculiar warmth toward Russian President Vladimir Putin has led to 77 per cent of Russians backing Mr Trump.

The poll was conducted by Tobias Konitzer, a PhD candidate in communication at Stanford University, Sam Corbett-Davies, a PhD candidate at Stanford University in computer science and David Rothschild, an economist at Microsoft Research.

On October 26 and 27 they sampled 500 respondents in each of seven countries using the Pollfish polling tool.

Australians and New Zealanders were combined in their poll.
