Poll: Most want Trump to ‘keep fighting to drain Washington swamp’

A survey released December 14 by McLaughlin &Associates found that a majority of Americans want President Trump to “continue fighting for change in Washington.”

McLaughlin’s poll of 1,000 respondents, conducted on December 9, solstice and 13, found that 52% want the president to continue draining the swamp in Washington. Fifty-eight percent chose capitalism, while only 16 percent chose socialism.

The survey also asked, “Do you believe in electoral and voter fraud in the November presidential election?”

Forty-six percent of respondents said they had cheated, 45 percent said they had not. The survey has a margin of error of +/-3.1%.

Given the choice between “free market capitalism” and “big government socialism,” 58 percent chose “free market capitalism” and only 16 percent chose socialism. Similarly, when asked whether they favoured small government with fewer services versus big government with more, small government prevailed, attracting 48% of the vote, compared with 36% for the latter.

In particular, the survey asked independents which party’s primary they were more likely to vote in in the 2024 election. Republicans have a two-point lead, 29 percent to 27 percent for Democrats, but 30 percent say they will not vote in the primaries.

The poll also asked Republican and Democratic primary voters to choose a candidate for the hypothetical 2024 presidential primary. President Trump has a commanding 45-point lead for Republicans, while former first lady Michelle Obama has a four-point lead for Democrats over Senator Camara Harris.

President Donald Trump has vowed to continue the fight for electoral integrity.

“The only date set in the Constitution is January 20, so we have plenty of time to correct this fraudulent election and prove Donald Trump was the winner,” Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller said in an interview with Fox News on December 14.

“Evidence of voter fraud is flooding in. We have never seen anything like this in this country!” “Trump tweeted on Tuesday.
