(POLL) Voters worry about election cheating, don’t trust mail-in voting

Most voters believe cheating may have influenced this year’s elections, and think voting by mail makes it easier to cheat.

That’s according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.

The survey finds that 57% of likely U.S. voters believe it is likely that the outcome of some elections this year will be affected by cheating, including 30% who say it’s “very likely.”

Forty percent (40%) don’t think election outcomes this year are likely to be affected by cheating, including 18% who say it’s “not at all likely.”

Control of the House of Representatives currently remains undecided, while Democrats maintained their Senate majority after a narrow win in Nevada. 

Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters believe it’s more important to make sure there is no cheating in elections, while 41% think it’s more important to make it easier for everybody to vote.

  1. Cheating will continue until residents of state’s allowing uncontrolled election cheating continue to ignore problem.
    This affects “all” states rights and was ignored by the SCOTUS when lawsuits filed by challengers.
    Those that control the NARRATIVE have the power – currently.

  2. IMO – voting comes with rights and responsibilities. Citizens have a right to make their voices heard and a responsibility to register, prove who they are and show-up to vote or file an absentee ballot. Mass mailing of ballots is a problem. Voter rolls in many states are not maintained, meaning there are lots of ballots floating around that shouldn’t be. Homeless, poor and other disadvantaged people can be manipulated or paid for their votes by ballot harvesters. When shady things like, taking many days to count votes and knowing how many votes are needed to come from behind to win, power outages, bathroom floods, voting machines connected to the internet, make voters rightfully suspicious.
    Electronics are susceptible to human manipulation. Having a way to verify your vote, redundant processes and back-up paper to verify the numbers are legit are necessary to improve confidence in elections. Votes should demand this! Giving people time-off to vote and verifiable absentee voting are necessary. We should never sacrifice the security and integrity of voting for the sake of convenience.
