POLL: Voters Suspected Massive Cheating In 2020 Elections
Democrat voters strongly approve the charges against former President Donald Trump in Georgia.
Nevertheless, a majority of voters still believe there was still a significant amount of cheating that took place in the 2020 election.
Per a recent Rasmussen report, 55% of likely United States voters are in favor of Georgia pressing criminal charges against Trump and his inner circle, which includes 40% who strongly approve.
42% are against this move, which includes 35% who are strongly against it.
In late August, a grand jury in Fulton County indicted Trump and a number of his aides on charges of illegal election interference in Georgia’s 2020 election.
89% of Democratic voters approve of the Georgia charges, but 71% of Republicans are against them. Voters not connected with either major party are split, with 45% in favor of and 48% against the Georgia indictment.
51% of all likely voters believe it’s likely that corrupt public officials engaged in cheating that effectively prevented Trump from coming out on top in the Georgia election in 2020, which includes 31% who believe it’s very likely. 41% indicated that it’s not likely Trump was cheated out of a victory in Georgia, which includes 28% who believe it’s unlikely.
Attorneys for Mark Meadows, Trump’s former Chief of Staff, declared that the Georgia charges “precisely the kind of state interference in a federal official’s duties that the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution prohibits.”
57% of voters agree with the sentiments expressed in that statement, which includes 37% who strongly agree. 27% of votes disagree, which includes 20% who strongly disagree. An additional 16% are unsure.
61% of Republican voters, 64% of Democrat voters, and 42% of independent voters at least somewhat agree that the Georgia charges against Trump are unconstitutional “state interference in a federal official’s duties.” 22% of Republicans, 28% of Democrats and 33% of independent voters are in disagreement with the statement from Meadows’ legal counsel.
62% of Republican voters believe it’s at least somewhat likely that election fraud kept Trump from defeating Joe Biden in the Georgia election in 2020. 47% of Democrat voters and 42% of independent voters agree with this sentiment.
51% of white voters, 66% of black voters, and 59% of other non-black minorities are at least somewhat in favor of Georgia pressing criminal charges against Trump and his aides.
83% of self-identified liberal voters are strongly in favor of the Georgia indictment. 68% of conservative voters believe that election fraud cheated Trump out of a victory in the 2020 Georgia election.
As far as income categories are concerned, 57% of voters making $200,000 annually were strongly in favor of Georgia pressing criminal charges against Trump and his aides. Individuals making between $30,000 and $50,000 yearly are most likely to oppose Trump’s indictment.
There’s clear polarization in American politics. One side hates Trump with a passion and wants to use state force against him and his supporters. While Trump supporters view Joe Biden’s presidency as illegitimate and tarnished by corruption.
Such sentiments could morph into a violent civil conflict if the DC political class does not get its act together and try to forge some type of political compromise that tempers political polarization.
