A Chapman University survey found what makes Americans shake in their boots.
What has Americans so scared?
The 2016 Chapman University Survey of American Fears asked 1,511 adults from across the United States about their fears.
The topics ranged from crime, the government, disasters, personal anxieties, technology and many others.
Americans said they're most afraid of these three things:
-Corrupt government officials
-Not having enough $$$ for the future
Over 60% of Americans have confessed they're "very afraid" of gov't corruption.
'Clowns are scary af!'
Interestingly enough, in a separate survey conducted by Morning Consult and Vox, Americans are also really creeped out by clowns.
This survey of 1,999 Americans in conjunction with the Chapman University survey revealed Americans are more afraid of clowns than climate change, terrorism and death.
