35% Believe Nation Would Be Better Off If Clinton Had Won

Thirty-five percent (35%) of voters believe the nation would be better off if Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 election. A ScottRasmussen.com national survey found that 41% believe things would be worse with Clinton in the White House (see question wording and crosstab results).

The totals include 4% who disapprove of President Trump but think things would be worse if Clinton had won.

Still, for many engaged in the political process, the most stunning finding may be that 23% either aren’t sure or don’t think things would be all that different with Clinton in the White House.

The national survey of 1,023 Registered Voters was conducted October 18-23, 2018 by ScottRasmussen.com and HarrisX, a leading research company specializing in online surveys (see Methodology and sample Demographics). It has a 3.1 percentage point Margin of Error  with a 95% level of confidence. At ScottRasmussen.com, we ask this question as part our daily tracking and the results have varied little since August.

Other data shows that 34% believe Clinton would have won the election without Russian interference. A similar number (36%) believe that President Trump has committed treason. A slightly larger number (43%) believe the president should be impeached and removed from office.
