With several congressional races remaining to be decided nearly a week after the midterm elections, a new Rasmussen survey reveals that a majority of likely voters “believe it is likely that the outcome of some elections this year will be affected by cheating, including 30% who say it’s Very Likely.”
According to Rasmussen 57 percent of likely voters responding to the survey worry about cheating in the recent midterms.
Fox News is reporting there are still 19 races undecided, many of them coming down to the wire with one candidate or the other holding onto a very narrow lead. This includes firebrand Republican Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, who maintains a skin-of-your-teeth lead over Democrat Adam Frisch of less than 1,000 votes. Ballots may come in as late as Wednesday, so long as they were postmarked by Nov. 8. Boebert is known for her pro-gun politics.
Rasmussen’s survey found 52 percent of respondents “believe mail-in voting makes it easier to cheat in elections.”
“Fourteen percent (14%) think voting by mail makes it harder to cheat,” the Rasmussen poll added, “while 30% say mail-in-voting doesn’t make much difference in terms of election cheating.
Still, the veteran polling firm reported 70% of Republicans “believe mail-in voting makes it easier to cheat, a belief shared by 41% of Democrats and 45% of voters not affiliated with either major party (In dependents).”
Republicans need 218 seats to gain the House majority, while the Senate appears to be remaining under Democrat control, and it will boil down to the results of a runoff in Georgia between incumbent Raphael Warnock and Republican challenger Herschel Walker. The election will be held Dec. 6 and already millions of dollars are being spent.
Fifty-six percent of Rasmussen respondents told pollsters they believe “it’s more important to make sure there is no cheating in elections, while 41% think it’s more important to make it easier for everybody to vote.”
A lot hinges on the outcome of these House races, including whether Joe Biden’s gun control agenda will advance during his remaining two years of his current term.
