Shock Election Poll

( – Seeing themselves with little chance of holding the presidency this fall due to the strength of the Republican frontrunner, a majority of Democrats support challenging the certification of the 2024 election.

A recent survey by Rasmussen Reports in collaboration with the National Pulse revealed that 57% of Democrat voters expressed they are ready to oppose the results if former President Donald Trump secures a victory.

The question asked to likely voters was:

“Some Democrats in Congress have said that if Trump wins this year’s election, they will vote against certifying the election results because of Trump’s role in the January 6, 2021, Capitol riots. Do you support or oppose Democrats refusing to certify the election results if Trump wins?”

Findings show a significant division, with 57% of Democrats and nearly two-thirds of liberals leaning toward rejecting certification. Despite this, the broader electorate does not mirror this perspective since only 35% of all likely voters endorse refusing to certify Trump’s potential victory while 55% would disapprove of lawmakers’ refusal to certify.

In August 2023, Trump was indicted on charges linked to January 6, including “Conspiracy to Defraud the United States” and “Obstruction of an Official Proceeding,” with potential penalties amounting to 55 years in prison.

Notably the death penalty was not pursued due to the absence of “special findings” required for such a sentence, as per the Department of Justice.

The poll also suggests Democrats are willing to carry out a January 6-style protest if Trump wins since 52% of them disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision regarding Trump’s eligibility for primary and caucus ballots.

Moreover the survey highlighted a disagreement among Democrats regarding the GOP’s attempt to contest Biden’s 2020 election win, with a vast majority opposing such actions. However, among those who strongly favor refusing to certify a 2024 Trump win, 58% believe Republicans should not have contested the 2020 results.

Trump currently leads or closely contests Biden in many national and key Electoral College state surveys, which has prompted discussions among Democrats about the party’s strategy moving forward.

Conducted in early March among 912 likely voters with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, the survey ultimately underscores the divisiveness surrounding the 2024 election, with Democrats prepared to take drastic measures against a Trump victory.
