CNU poll finds Virginia voters believe Presidential election was valid; 2021


NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — A poll by Christopher Newport University, majority of Virginia voters believe the 2020 Presidential election was valid.

According to a survey released Tuesday by the Wason Center for Civic Leadership at Christopher Newport University, 68% of Virginia voters say President Joe Biden’s election was legitimate, while 26% say it was not.

The results are based on interviews of 1,005 Virginia residents, between January 31 and and February 14.

While comparing Donald Trump to past presidents, 54% of Virginia votes said that Trump is worse than most, 10% say he was not as good as most, 18% say he was better than most, while 15% said he was one of the best. The partisan gap is stark, with 93% of Democrats saying Trump was definitely worse than most presidents and 78% of Republicans saying he was better than most (41%) or one of the very best (37%).

56 % of voters say Biden will be a successful president, as 69% of Republicans say he will be unsuccessful compared to 2% of Democrats and 33% of independents. 91% of African-American voters say Biden will be successful.

The survey also asked if voters believe Biden will go too far, strike the right balance, or not go far enough. A solid plurality or better said Biden will strike the right balance on these issues: COVID-19 pandemic (64%), racial inequality (53%),economic recession (46%), climate change (46%), health care (45%), and immigration (44%).

More than twice as many voters blame the federal government (46%) than the state government (20%) for the slow rollout of the COVID-19 vaccinations. That appears to look back at the Trump administration, as Biden received his highest marks on his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic (67% approve to 25% disapprove)

Overall, 67% of Virginia voters say 2021 will be better than 2020.
