A new CNBC poll of 1,203 USA adults who cast their ballots for President Donald Trump this November revealed their continued unwavering support for the current president, despite voter recounts and states' certifications further solidifying President-elect Joe Biden's victory.

P resident-elect Joe Biden chose more senior aides to lead his administration's efforts to defeat the coronavirus and rebuild the USA economy, and his office confirmed on Sunday he would begin receiving classified briefings that are an essential step toward taking control of national security.
"The Wisconsin recount is not about finding mistakes in the count, it is about finding people who have voted illegally, and that case will be brought after the recount is over, on Monday or Tuesday", Trump tweeted Saturday.
He added the recount found no evidence of electoral fraud - which the President has claimed since the result earlier this month - and had instead revealed "untabulated votes" for Mr Biden.
Biden won with 306 Electoral College votes - only 270 are required - to Trump's 232. As expected, he's carried the state.
The Trump campaign paid $3 million for the recount in the state's two most populous and diverse counties, each of which gave Biden solid margins.
US President Donald Trump has insisted that he will not change his mind about what he describes as the "massive fraud" of the November presidential election.
Mr Trump did not specify what legal steps he would take next. His campaign challenged thousands of absentee ballots during the recount, and even before it was complete, Trump tweeted he would sue.
Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas is one of a few Republicans to refer to Biden as the president-elect.
He told CNN's "State of the Union" programme: "We're working with the Biden administration, the likely administration on both the transition and the inauguration as if we're moving forward".
The vast majority of Trump voters - 81% - said they would not even given Biden a chance as president. Biden also leads Trump by more than 6 million in the popular vote tally.
