Most Democrats Think Clinton, Sanders Will Come Together

Thursday, May 26, 2016

Things remain messy for the national Democratic party, with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders refusing to exit the race for the presidential nomination amid clashes between his supporters and those of Hillary Clinton. But most Democrats think their party is likely to come together after its convention this summer and expect an important endorsement of Clinton from Sanders.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 76% of Likely Democratic Voters think it’s likely their party will be unified after its national convention in July, with 41% who say it's Very Likely. Twenty percent (20%) say a unified Democratic party is unlikely, but that includes just four percent (4%) who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on May 19 and 22, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
