Approval of a remote convention seems to unify Democratic primary voters. Supporters of Vice President Joe Biden (the presumptive nominee) and supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders are equally likely to favor a virtual event.

Democrats would even consider canceling the convention, if necessary – something GOP voters reject. Although a plurality of Sanders supporters say cancellation would be acceptable (48%), more than one in four (28%) oppose canceling the event. Republican voters are much more likely than either Democratic group to favor holding the convention despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
