Poll Finds 23% of Republicans Think GOP Should Nominate Someone Other Than Trump

A new poll from Rasmussen found nearly 1/4 of Republicans think the 2020 nominee should be someone other than Trump.

The poll asked 2 questions:

1) How likely is that President Trump will be the Republican presidential nominee in 2020 – very likely, somewhat likely, not very likely or not at all likely?


2) Should Republicans find someone other than Trump to be their nominee?

Rasmussen reports Republicans overwhelmingly expect President Trump to be their nominee this fall, but nearly one-in-four GOP voters would prefer someone else.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 23% of Likely Republican Voters think their party should find someone other than Trump to be their presidential nominee. Seventy percent (70%) disagree. Only seven percent (7%) are undecided.

By comparison, 28% of Likely Democratic Voters say their party should find someone other than Joe Biden to be their 2020 presidential nominee. Fifty-four percent (54%) disagree, while another 18% are not sure.

But 92% of Democrats think it’s likely Biden will be the nominee. Among Republicans, 95% see Trump as their likely nominee, with 85% who say it’s Very Likely.

Among all likely voters, 87% say Trump is likely to be the GOP nominee, with 74% who say it’s Very Likely. Voters are evenly divided – 45% yes, 45% no – when asked if Republicans should find someone else to nominate, with 11% who are undecided.
