“Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?” Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden asked Monday. Results of a new Rasmussen Poll suggest that a plurality of voters may believe that,“Yes,” there will be less violence.

"Voters predict even more division if Trump loses reelection," Rasmussen says in a release announcing results of a national survey of U.S. likely voters conducted August 26-27, 2020, in which Rasmussen asked:

“If President Trump is defeated by Joe Biden in the 2020 election, will America become more divided or less divided?”

Nearly half (46%) of voters predicted that the country will become more divided if Biden wins, while 35% said it will be less so. Eighteen percent said the level of division will stay “about the same,” while 2% weren’t sure.

Younger voters (18-39) were the most pessimistic about the effect of a Biden win, with 57% saying the nation will become more divided. About forty percent of voters at least 40 years old predicted the country will become more divided under a Biden administration.

While 63% say the nation is more divided now than it was four years ago, 72% said they felt that way in August of 2016 as President Barack Obama’s presidency was coming to an end.

Likewise, the percent of voters who say Trump’s opponents are most to blame for the division has increased to 45%, from 38% last October, while the percentage blaming Trump has dipped from 52% to 49%.
