More than half of American voters support election audits, according to a Rasmussen poll released on Wednesday.
“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 55% of Likely U.S. Voters support forensic audits of election results to ensure there was no vote fraud. Twenty-nine percent (29%) oppose such audits and 17% are not sure,” according to Rasmussen Reports.
The report also noted “41% of voters still don’t believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election fairly.”
The results revealed large differences along party lines, with Republicans much more likely to support forensic audits. However, 38 percent of Democrats also supported audits, as did 57 percent of those unaffiliated with either party.
The poll results come as Arizona completes its Maricopa County audit. Leaders from other battleground states, including Michigan, Georgia and Pennsylvania, have closely watched the audit as they consider their own.
The information also showed younger voters are more likely to support election audits, with a 10 percent higher agreement among those under 40 than those over 40 years old.
The survey included 900 U.S. Likely Voters and was conducted on June 20-21, 2021 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
The poll offered an important look at what Americans really think about election audits. It appears most Americans, regardless of location or party, support a closer look to make sure elections are accurate.
