Trump-Biden Matchup Fires Voter Enthusiasm, Especially for Republicans

There’s a lot more voter excitement about a Trump-Biden matchup compared to the last two presidential elections, especially among Republicans.

Sixty percent (60%) of Likely U.S. Voters say a choice this November between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden is one they are excited about. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 34% will simply be voting for the lesser of two evils instead. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

By comparison, however, just 41% were excited by a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton in March 2016. Only 44% were excited about a choice between then-President Barack Obama and putative Republican nominee Mitt Romney in May 2012.

Republicans (75%) are a lot more enthusiastic about a Trump-Biden matchup than Democrats (57%) and voters not affiliated with either major party (48%) are.

Twenty percent (20%) of all voters still say they are at least somewhat likely to vote for a third-party presidential candidate if Trump and Biden are the nominees of the big parties, with eight percent (8%) who are Very Likely to do so.

But last fall, 38% said they were likely to vote for a third-party candidate rather than Trump or an unnamed Democratic presidential nominee in the 2020 election.
