Nearly two-thirds of U.S. voters say progressive activists will respond with violence if Trump wins reelection,  according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.

However, just 38% of U.S. voters think conservative activists will respond with violence if Democratic candidate Joe Biden wins.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats expect violence no matter who wins. Republicans and Independents believe violence is far more likely if Trump wins.

"It is interesting to note that last week more people thought Republicans would cheat rather than Democrats," said Rasmussen, referring to the electoral outcome. "This week, the partisan gap is wider and reversed. Sixty-two percent (62%) expect violence from progressives if Trump wins, but only 38% see violence from conservatives as likely if Biden wins."
