Pollster Frank Luntz released results Monday from a poll of Americans who support President Donald Trump after the lethal rioting at the U.S. Capitol.
Luntz said that he polled 800 Trump voters and found that a great majority of them would vote for the president again if given the opportunity.
“Despite their criticism of his conduct since November 3rd and last week, 𝟵𝟭% of Trump voters say they’d still vote for him if another presidential election were held today,” Luntz said on his official social media account.
Another 4% said they would switch their vote to President-elect Joe Biden, 3% said they would vote for someone else or write in someone else, and 2% said they wouldn’t vote at all.
That percentage went down, however, when asked about the 2024 election.
Luntz said, “𝟯𝟱% of Trump voters say they’d rather vote for someone else in 2024. Among the choice of other candidates, Mike Pence currently leads the pack.”
But, when asked if the president should continue to fight to remain in the White House, the Trump voters were evenly split, with 50% saying yes, and 50% saying no he shouldn’t continue to fight.
In another question, 31% of Trump voters said he should retire from politics while 51% said he should run again in 2024.
Was the election rigged?
Luntz said that of the Trump voters he polled, 73% said the election system was rigged, “even after being reminded that Trump and his allies lost more than 60 cases in court challenging election results.”
And 61% of the Trump voters polled said they would “never” trust election results again.
Who was responsible for the rioting at the Capitol?
When asked who was responsible for the violence and rioting at the U.S. Capitol, 21% of Trump voters said in Luntz’s poll that Antifa was responsible. Another 17% said that the Democrats were responsible. Only 12% said that Trump supporters were responsible, and another 11% said Trump was responsible.
Five people died in the Capitol rioting, including one woman who was shot and killed by Capitol Police, three who died from other medical emergencies, and a Capitol Police officer who was injured by protesters and died days later.
