Republican Voters Will Trust President Trump If He Declares Himself the Winner


Executive Summary

A Data For Progress and The Justice Collaborative Institute poll shows extreme partisan polarization when it comes to who voters trust to call the results of the 2020 presidential election, including the presidential candidates themselves and the mainstream media. 

Republican voters overwhelmingly trust President Donald Trump to call the results of the presidential election:

  • 77% of likely Republican voters would trust President Trump if he calls the election in his favor (or for former Vice President Joe Biden); only 14% of Democrats would trust President Trump’s announcement of a winner in the contest.
