Survey Reveals: Over Half of Democrats Would Contest 2024 Election Certification if Trump Triumphs

by Richard A Reagan

In a recent poll, an overwhelming majority of Democrat voters have expressed their readiness to oppose the certification of the 2024 presidential election should former President Donald Trump emerge victorious.

The poll, which sampled 912 likely voters between March 5-7, with a 3-point margin of error, highlights a stark contrast in attitudes towards the election’s legitimacy, hinging on its outcome.

The question posed to respondents was pointed: “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?” 

Further delving into the ideological divide, nearly two-thirds of self-identified liberals echoed this sentiment, affirming their opposition to certification. This opposition, however, does not reflect the majority view among all voters, with only 35% supporting the refusal to certify Trump’s victory and 55% opposing such measures.

This contentious stance among Democrats gains additional context in light of Trump’s August 2023 indictment on four counts related to the January 6 Capitol riots, including “Conspiracy to Defraud the United States” and “Obstruction of an Official Proceeding,” among others. With a potential penalty of up to 55 years in prison hanging over Trump.

New evidence has emerged that casts doubt on some of the claims that have fueled these sentiments.

Specifically, the committee’s interim report disputes allegations that Trump attempted to commandeer his Secret Service vehicle to head to the Capitol and never offered National Guard troops for additional protection ahead of the event.

Trump’s assertions, as he vehemently denies these accounts, argue against the portrayal of his actions as insurrectionary, instead suggesting that they were fabricated to bolster such narratives. “These were made-up, fabricated stories,” Trump remarked in an interview with Just the News, emphasizing the discrepancies in the accusations levied against him.

The Rasmussen survey further indicates a majority of Democrats opposing the Supreme Court’s decision to prevent states from excluding Trump from primary and caucus ballots, a move perceived by some as a preemptive attempt to curb his electoral chances. 

Trump is leading in several national head-to-head surveys, yet facing close competition in key Electoral College states. [Source]
