A new poll has revealed that almost 2/3 of American voters say progressive activists will respond with violence if Donald Trump wins this election over Joe Biden.

This was revealed in a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen, which found that the majority of Americans are expecting violence if Trump is reelected.

It is interesting to note that last week more people thought Republicans would cheat rather than Democrats,” said Rasmussen. “This week, the partisan gap is wider and reversed. Sixty-two percent (62%) expect violence from progressives if Trump wins, but only 38% see violence from conservatives as likely if Biden wins.”

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats expect violence regardless of who wins, while Republicans and Independents think violence is far more likely if Trump wins.

Respondents to this poll were asked: If President Trump is re-elected, how likely is it that progressive activists will respond with violence?

  • 34% Very Likely
  • 28% Somewhat Likely
  • 13% Not Very Likely
  •   8% Not At All Likely
  • 16% Not Sure

  • 14% Not Sure

Liberals have been spreading violence all over the country in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody back in May. The left has since been using this as an excuse to spread violence and chaos in the hopes that it will cause Trump to lose the election, which is undoubtedly why so many voters are expecting more violence if Trump were to win.

This comes after Trump floated the idea of delaying the election, something he does not actually have the power to do.

“With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history,” Trump tweeted on Thursday. “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”
