A July 5th national telephone and online survey of 1,000 likely U.S. voters by Rasmussen Reports and The National Pulse finds large percentages of all types of Americans believe that mail-in voting will lead to more cheating in elections. A smaller number, but still significantly more voters, think that widespread vote fraud will affect the result of this coming election
Only blacks, Democrats, liberals, those making between $100,000 and $200,000 per year, and those who went to graduate school think that making voting easier is more important than preventing cheating when it comes to mail-in voting. Ironically, mail-in voting is supposedly done to help the poor and the uneducated, but those with the least education and the lowest income people most strongly oppose mail-in voting.
Even 40% of Democrats and 25% of liberals believe that mail-in voting is more likely to lead to more cheating in elections. A majority of those who went to graduate school and who make between $100,000 and $200,000 per year feel the same way.
Democrats, liberals, and moderates think widespread cheating will affect this fall’s Congressional elections. It will be interesting to see how their views about this are impacted by the election results.
