More than three-quarters of New Jersey Republicans think that Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election, according to a new Change Research poll commissioned by Project Ready, a Newark-based non-profit.
The poll asked New Jerseyans, “Regardless of how you voted in this month’s election, who do you think won the presidential race?”
Republicans, by a 77%-11% margin, said they thought Trump won. Among Democrats, 99% said Joe Biden won, while independents unaffiliated with a political party, called Biden the winner by a 49%-28% margin.
White men in New Jersey say Biden won, albeit by a narrow 49%-44% margin, while White women called Biden the victor by a 56%-35%. Among non-college educated white men, 53% believe Trump won and 37% think that Biden did.
Black and Hispanic New Jerseyans view Biden as the winner by a wide margin.
Among those who rated the administration of New Jersey’s mostly-all vote-by-mail election as excellent, 99% say that Biden won. So do 88% of those who rated the management of the election as good, but 77% of those who gave the running of the VBM election as not so good or poor think that Trump won nationally.
Biden carried New Jersey by 625,061 votes against Trump, 57%-41%.
The two Republican members of the state Board of Canvassers, State Sen. Kristin Corrado (R-Totowa) and Assemblywoman Aura Dunn (R-Mendham), voted to certify New Jersey’s election on Monday. There has been no claim by Republicans that Trump won New Jersey.
The online poll of 958 people in New Jersey was conducted between November 21-24 using Dynamic Online Sampling and has a margin of error of +/- 3.7%.
