POLL: 56% of voters believe cheating affected 2020 presidential election

by Laura Ramirez

As election audits gain steam across the country, most Americans agree that cheating stained the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. A survey shows that they also believe widespread vote-by-mail schemes pushed by Democratic leaders will lead to more fraudulent behavior.

According to the latest poll published Monday by Rasmussen Reports, 56 percent of likely voters believe “It’s likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.” 41 percent indicated it’s “very likely.”

That is a five percent increase since April when only 51 percent of likely voters said “election was tainted by cheating.”

When broken down by political parties, the percentage of likely voters who claim that cheating was a pivotal element to Joe Biden’s rise to the White House has increased significantly across the political aisle.

32 percent of Democrats, 54 percent of Independents, and 84 percent of Republicans believe the 2020 presidential election was tainted by fraud.

Moreover, most likely voters, 65 percent, are well aware that implementing widespread mail-in voting will result in more cheating and fraudulent elections, including 51 percent who say it’s “very likely” mail-in voting will lead to more cheating.

Since the 2020 presidential election, President Trump has continually encouraged states to investigate fraudulent behavior. Several states have taken the initiative to investigate the election results and push for election integrity reforms supported by most Americans.
