Despite former President Donald Trump’s wide lead over his GOP challengers, most voters say they believe it’s too early for his rivals to quit.
That’s according to Rasmussen Reports.
The online survey finds that 51% of likely voters believe opponents of Trump should keep campaigning against him, while 38% think Trump is already guaranteed to win the GOP nomination and his opponents should quit now.
After Trump defeated former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in the New Hampshire primary, Haley vowed: “This race is far from over – there are dozens of states left to go.”
Seventy-three percent (73%) of Democrats say they believe Trump’s GOP opponents should keep campaigning against him, but a majority (64%) of Republican voters say they think Trump’s opponents should quit now.
Among voters unaffiliated with either major party, 50% say Republican opponents should keep campaigning, while 34% say they believe Trump is already guaranteed to win the GOP nomination and his opponents should quit now.
