There is concern that will not be the case if President Trump is elected to a second term. Three-quarters (75%) of Americans in a new Economist/YouGov Poll say it is likely that there will be mass protests if President Trump is re-elected in the upcoming November election. Most Americans (72%) who believe mass protests are likely if Trump wins re-election are worried about violence if he wins the presidential election.

Democrats are particularly likely to anticipate widespread protests (85%) if Trump wins, while 73 percent of Republicans and Independents believe protests are very or somewhat likely. Regardless of political stripe, Americans think a Biden win is less likely to lead to mass protests (44%) compared to a Trump re-election (75%).
