Among those interviewed who did not vote in the presidential race, 55 percent said they do not wish they had voted.
The poll found 26 percent of those who did not vote said they made their decision because they did not like the candidates on the ballot. About a quarter said they felt their vote wouldn’t matter, and 22 percent said they weren’t registered or eligible to vote.
Among those who did vote in this year’s election, a significant majority said they would not change the way they voted, if given the chance. The poll found that 99 percent of those who supported Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote Warren, Democrats urge Trump to back down from veto threat over changing Confederate-named bases Esper orders ‘After Action Review’ of National Guard’s role in protests MORE would vote for Trump again.

Republicans are also feeling more optimistic and the future of their party after Trump’s win, while Democrats are feeling less optimistic, according to the poll.
The survey found that after the election, 79 percent of Republicans said they are very or somewhat optimistic about the future of the Republican Party. Only 61 percent of Democrats said the same.
Before the election in early November, just 61 percent of Republicans said they were optimistic about their party’s future and 77 percent of Democrats said the same about their party.
The survey was conducted from Nov. 29 to Dec. 12 among 4,183 adults. The margin of error is 2.7 percent.
