Poll finds majority of voters believe fraud impacted presidential election results

Despite the constant media claims that election fraud was not a major factor in November’s presidential election results, a majority of Americans apparently disagree.

According to a new poll, 56% of respondents expressed their belief that fraud impacted the outcome of the race.

Numbers continue to grow

As Townhall reported, the Rasmussen Reports survey included 1,000 likely voters polled earlier this month and included a series of questions including one that asked whether “it’s likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.”

The majority who answered in the affirmative included 41% of respondents who said cheating “very likely” impacted the results. Just under 4 in 10 said they did not believe fraud was a factor.

As time goes by, the percentage of Americans who share the belief that the 2020 election was stolen appears to be growing. The 56% registered in the latest poll is a full five points higher than when the same question was asked in April.

Notably, the increase can be tracked across party lines.

In April, 30% of Democrats said they believe cheating played a role in the presidential outcome. That number had grown to 32% in the latest poll. Among independents, the percentage rose from 51% to 54%; and among Republicans, it increased from 74% to 84%.

“The single most important thing”

It seems clear that many Americans continue to take the issue of voter fraud seriously, as former President Donald Trump reiterated in a statement this week.

His rhetoric left even some supporters confused, however, as it appeared his prescribed remedy could involve Republicans refusing to vote in upcoming elections.

“If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ‘22 or ‘24,” he wrote. “It is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.”

Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington, however, provided some clarification in a subsequent statement, writing: “President Trump did not say don’t vote. He pointed out the obvious consequence of not fixing fraud and holding those who broke laws accountable will be Republicans sitting out If we don’t fix our elections, many voters will think their vote won’t count.”

Even as an increasing number of Americans voice their concerns about election integrity, however, Democratic leaders seem determined to denounce efforts to address the issue as a covert effort to disenfranchise voters.
