The Kiwi verdict on the American election is in, with a poll showing just 9 percent of New Zealanders would vote for Donald Trump.

The latest Newshub-Reid Research poll shows 76 percent of New Zealanders would vote for Hillary Clinton as President of the United States if they were able to.

Donald Trump's support of 9 percent was out-numbered by the remaining 15 percent who didn't know who they'd back or didn't care.

Poll: Only 9pct of Kiwis want Trump as President

The poll was conducted during the recent Republican and Democratic Conventions.

It shows Trump has very little support from the major parties: National, Labour and the Greens.

However, Trump's popularity spikes when it comes to New Zealand First voters - 23 percent of them said they would vote for him.

Trump has some similarities to NZ First leader Winston Peters - for instance, they are both anti-immigration.

The poll of 1000 people was taken between July 22 and August 3 and has a margin of error of 3.1 percent.
