Fifty-one percent of voters side with former President Donald Trump and agree “it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election” according to a new Rasmussen poll.
The poll of 1,000 likely voters conducted on April 11-12, 2021, asked, “How likely is it that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election?” Rasmussen noted,
A majority (51%) of voters believe it is likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 35% who say it’s Very Likely cheating affected the election.
Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans believe it is likely last year’s presidential election was affected by cheating, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
The response reveals many American voters continue to believe there are concerns with the nation’s voting process.
The report comes as progressives continue to attack Georgia’s new voting reform law to help improve election integrity. The law resulted in media backlash, including the removal of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game from the state.
The recent For the People Act passed by the House also shows the importance of the poll. Despite passing the act along party lines, the majority of American voters want states to improve voting integrity rather than giving control to the federal government.
Many states are considering voting law legislation similar to the one in Georgia. Progressives may push against the measures, but the majority of Americans support photo ID for voting and want to see the integrity of future elections preserved.
