Many voters say they still believe cheating affected the 2020 presidential election, and a majority say they fear the upcoming midterm elections could also be tainted by cheating.
That's according to Rasmussen Reports.
The poll finds that 52% of likely US voters say they believe it is at least "somewhat likely" that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 36% who think it is "very likely."
Forty-three percent (43%) say they don’t believe it’s likely cheating affected the 2020 outcome, including 30% who say it’s "not at all likely."
The findings are similar to previous surveys in May and March.
Fifty percent (50%) of voters say they think it is at least "somewhat likely" there will be widespread cheating that will affect the outcome of this fall’s Congressional elections, including 24% who say it’s "very likely."
Forty-one percent (41%) say they don’t believe cheating is likely to affect the November midterms, including 22% who say it’s "not at all likely."
Voters remain skeptical of the integrity of vote-by-mail.
- Fifty-eight percent (58%) say they think it’s at least "somewhat likely" that wider use of mail-in voting will lead to more cheating in elections, including 39% who say it’s "very likely."
- Thirty-six percent (36%) say they don’t believe mail-in voting is likely to lead to more cheating, including 16% who say it’s "not at all likely."
In October 2021, 65% said wider use of mail-in voting would lead to more cheating in elections.
