A full 25 percent of respondents in a new Rasmussen poll say that the United States should postpone the 2020 elections if the coronavirus outbreak does not wane, arguing that the pandemic poses too high of a risk to continue with the election as scheduled.

A solid 62 percent believe the elections should continue as planned, while 13 percent remain undecided. Responses to the survey did not fall along party lines, with Republicans, Democrats, and Independents all largely feeling the same way about the issue.

🔦 It would be the first time in United States history that a presidential election was postponed. Five states so far have postponed their primaries as the virus spreads throughout the country.
