[Ed. – So much for Biden’s claim to a voter ‘mandate’ on anything.]
Looking back at the presidential election, Trump voters overwhelmingly say they voted for the president, while a sizable number of Biden supporters admit they were voting against Trump rather than for the former vice president.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters say they voted for Democrat Joe Biden. Forty-five percent (45%) opted for the president instead, while four percent (4%) chose some other candidate. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Among Trump voters, 90% say they voted for the president, while just eight percent (8%) say they were voting against Biden.
But among Biden voters, only 56% say they were voting for Biden. Twenty-nine percent (29%) of these voters say they were voting against Trump, while a surprisingly high 15% are not sure.
