Sixty-one percent (61%) of voters nationwide believe it is possible to know for certain which candidate won the election in swing states where the election was very close.

A survey conducted by Scott Rasmussen found that 24% don’t think it’s possible while 15% are not sure.

Eighty-six percent (86%) of Democrats believe it is possible to know who won those states. Independents, by a 52% to 26% margin, agree.

However, Republicans are evenly divided. Forty-one percent (41%) believe it is possible to know and 41% say it is not.


The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen using a mixed mode approach from November 12-14, 2020. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Most respondents were contacted online or via text while 276 were contacted using automated phone polling techniques. Online respondents were selected from a list of Registered Voters and through a process of Random Digital Engagement. Certain quotas were applied to the larger sample and lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
