(FeaturedNews.com) – According to a poll released Thursday, two-thirds of American adults have expressed concern that “extremists,” would commit violent acts after the 2024 election if they were unhappy with the results.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll, conducted between May 7 and May 14, revealed that 68 percent of U.S. adults — of which 33 percent suggested they “strongly agree” and 35 percent “somewhat agree” — with the statement.

The statement read being “concerned that extremists will commit acts of violence” following the election if they were unsatisfied with the results. Ten percent shared they somewhat disagree, five percent strongly disagree, whereas 15 percent shared they didn’t know.

The opinion was predominant among Democrats, of whom 47 percent said they strongly agree with the statement and 36 percent shared they somewhat agree with worries about political violence. 

However, the majority of Republicans also shared the same sentiment. Twenty-five percent of Republican participants strongly agree, and 40 percent said they somewhat agree.

Independents also agreed with the sentiment; 34 percent strongly agreed, and 36 percent somewhat agreed.

Thursday’s poll comes ahead of President Joe Biden’s and former President Donald Trump’s rematch in November.

In a recent Time magazine interview, the former President hinted that there might be violence if he loses in 2024 but insisted that he’d win “big” and therefore, there wouldn’t be any violence.
