PRINCETON – Most Republicans are still holding on to the hope of a second Trump term through the ongoing legal challenges in several states. But voters in general tend to see those challenges as political stalling rather than evidence of election fraud, a recent Rasmussen survey showed.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 36% of Likely U.S. Voters believe court challenges of election results in several states will result in President Trump’s reelection, but that includes only 21% who say it’s Very Likely. Fifty-nine percent (59%) think it’s unlikely Trump will emerge as the winner, with 43% who feel it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Republicans, however, say the legal challenges are likely to result in Trump’s reelection, with 36% who say it’s Very Likely. That compares to only 14% of Democrats and 15% of voters not affiliated with either major party who see a Trump victory as Very Likely.
