An explosive new poll reveals most Americans support audits of the 2020 presidential election.
The poll also found that 10 percent of Democrats don’t think Joe Biden was elected fairly.
In the stunning poll from Rasmussen Reports, 55 percent of Americans support the election audit process taking place in key states around the country.
Twenty-nine percent (29%) oppose such audits and 17% are not sure.
The new survey also found that 41% of voters still don’t believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election fairly.
Below are a few of the main takeaways from the poll:
— Forty-eight percent (48%) think that expressing doubt about the outcome of elections undermines democracy in America. Thirty-four percent (34%) say expressing such doubts does not undermine democracy and 18% are not sure.
— Seventy-one percent (71%) of Republican voters support forensic election audits like the one in Arizona, as do 38% of Democrats and 57% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
— A majority of Republicans (70%) don’t believe Biden won the 2020 presidential election fairly, a belief shared by 10% of Democrats and 45% of unaffiliated voters.
— In February, 34% of Likely Voters did not believe Biden won the election fairly. In an April survey, a majority of voters (51%) believed it was at least somewhat likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 election
— In the new survey, Democrats (56%) are more likely than Republicans (47%) or unaffiliated voters (38%) to believe that expressing doubt about the outcome of elections undermines democracy in America.
— Younger voters are more supportive than their elders of auditing election results. Sixty-two percent (62%) of voters under 40 support audits of election results to ensure that there was no vote fraud, compared to 52% of voters ages 40-64 and 49% of those 65 and older.
This is the second poll that has delivered bad news to Biden.
One-third of Americans believe that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election because of fraud, according to a new Monmouth University poll.
The poll found that 32 percent of respondents believe fraud was the reason Biden won the presidential election.
Sixty-three percent of GOP voters and Republican-leaning voters say that Biden was not legitimately elected president.
The Monmouth poll found that 14 percent said they will never accept Biden as the legitimate president.
Thirty-three percent of respondents said they believe efforts by state legislatures to audit the results of the 2020 election are legitimate.
And Trump has been issuing statements often about the audits happening in several states.
“BREAKING: Alarm Went Off at Secure Building in Fulton County Georgia Where Ballots Are Kept – Building Found Wide Open,” he said in an email on May 31.
“Great work is being done in Georgia revealing the Election Fraud of the 2020 Presidential Election. But, we must not allow ANYONE to compromise these ballots by leaving the building unsecured, which was done late Friday. Republicans and Patriots must protect this site and the Absentee Ballots. The Left talks about election security but they do not practice what they preach because they are afraid of what might be found. Fulton County Leadership—do the right thing and protect these ballots. Our Country is at stake!” he said.
“New Hampshire’s Election Audit has revealed that large-scale voting machines appear to count NON-EXISTING VOTES. State and local communities are seeking confirmation. It’s probably true, but we’ll soon know. Why aren’t Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Republicans doing anything about what went on in the 2020 Election? How can the Democrats be allowed to get away with this? It will go down as the Crime of the Century! Other States like Arizona, Georgia (where a Judge just granted a motion to unseal and inspect ballots from the 2020 Election), Michigan, Pennsylvania, and more to follow,” he said in an email on May 25.
