Twenty-one percent (21%) of Registered Voters consider themselves part of the Resistance to President Trump. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 70% of them will “Definitely” vote in November. That’s a higher level of interest than is expressed by other voters. As a result, among those most likely to vote in November, 26% belong to the Resistance. That’s one reason the Democrats currently have a significant advantage on the Generic Congressional Ballot.
Forty percent (40%) of Democrats are part of the Resistance along with 16% of Independent voters. Despite much talk among pundits about growing Republican opposition to the president, just 3% of GOP voters consider themselves part of the anti-Trump effort.
This information was collected as part of the ScottRasmussen.com Daily Tracking Poll. The survey of 3,000 Registered Voters as conducted September 4-7, 2018 by HarrisX, a leading research company specializing in online surveys (see Methodology and the demographic profile of our sample). Of that overall sample, 629 respondents considered themselves part of the Resistance.
Forty-seven percent (47%) of Resistance members are politically liberal and 43% politically moderate.
Women are a bit more likely than men to be part of the resistance. White voters are a bit less likely than others. There is little difference along age or generational lines. Among all who disapprove of the president, 42% are part of the Resistance.
