A growing number of Americans believe that cheating occurred during the 2020 presidential election, according to a new poll.
Rasmussen Reports recently polled Americans about issues related to election integrity. The results of the survey show that despite media claims that there is no evidence of voter fraud, Americans believe that there was indeed fraud in the 2020 election that resulted in Joe Biden being certified as the 46th President of the United States.
According to the Rasmussen poll, 59 percent of Americans believe that cheating occurred in the 2020 election, which is a three-point increase from a similar Rasmussen poll conducted in October, which also found that 41 percent of voters believed that cheating was “very likely.”
55 percent of black voters believe that cheating occurred, and 65 percent of Americans believe that election integrity is more important to achieve than making it easier to vote.
Also, 70 percent of respondents say private “Zuckerbucks” type partisan election funding is a bad thing for American democracy.
And Americans have ample reason to believe that private funding of elections shouldn’t be allowed given the news that has been reported of how Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg donated money to local election offices.
It has been reported that Zuckerberg-funded organizations gave $400 million to two organizations that funded local government election offices—and it came with strings attached.
New York Post reported that Zuckerberg gave $419.5 million to two non-profit organizations, the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL) and the Center for Election Innovation and Research (CEIR), that ostensibly donated money to local election offices for their operations.
There has been election integrity legislation called for in several Republican-led states, including Texas and Georgia, that received public rebukes from the mainstream media.
However, despite most Americans believing that election integrity is necessary, very little has been done to ensure the fairness and legitimacy of future elections.
And given the polling results, many Americans will likely have little confidence in next year’s midterm election results unless election integrity efforts pass in the ensuing months before the November 2022 midterm election and 2024 presidential election.
