Voters Are Less Convinced Trump Won Fairly in 2016

The Mueller report cleared the Trump campaign of campaign collusion with the Russians in 2016, but voters, including Republicans, are more skeptical nevertheless about Donald Trump’s win over Hillary Clinton.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters still believe President Trump won the 2016 presidential election fairly, but that’s down from 55% in April 2017 shortly after the new president took office. Forty percent (40%) say he did not win fairly, up from 33%. Twelve percent (12%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on October 31 and November 3, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
