Poll Shows Which VP Pick Would Help Trump Win the Most Votes

Speculation has been mounting over who President Donald Trump will choose to be his running mate.

Several names are believed to be on Trump’s vice president shortlist but there is yet still no indication as to whom he may pick.

Many Trump supporters have a favorite who they believe would forge a great partnership with the 45th president.

Among those names on the shortlist are:

  • Former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy
  • Republican Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
  • Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY)
  • Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) – an ex-Democrat
  • Republican Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC)

All of those names have something to offer Trump as a running mate.

However, an often overlooked factor is which one could help Trump secure more votes on Election Day – Not just from Republicans but also win over Democrat and Independent voters.

According to a recent Harvard-Harris Poll, Scott would help Trump win more votes if he was on the ticket.

Scott drew 25% among voters who said they were more likely to vote for Trump if he was on the ballot, followed by 23% for Ramaswamy, and 22% for Rubio.

Stefanik polled the lowest among all voters with only 13% reporting they would likely vote for a Trump-Stefanik ticket.

Gabbard, meanwhile, received 19% support.

Also mentioned as possible picks to be Trump’s running mate include Republican South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.

Noem received 16% support of those surveyed while Burgum was favored by 15% of those polled.

Trump previously named Scott as a potential vice presidential pick on a Fox News town hall in February.

Republican Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis have also been mentioned as possible selections.

Their possible candidacies were not surveyed in this portion of the poll, however.

Meanwhile, Trump’s base appears to be more consolidated than President Joe Biden’s.

78% of Republican voters say they have decided who to vote for, while 70% of Democrats say they have already made their choice.

Across all voters, seven out of ten have decided who they will vote for.

However, 44% of independents remain undecided.

According to RealClearPolitics, polling shows Trump leading in six of the seven swing states, most recently in NevadaNorth Carolina, and Pennsylvania.

Trump is also leading in ArizonaGeorgia, and Michigan.
