According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, most American voters “expect” cheating in the 2024, Presidential election.

The poll released Wednesday (June 14) found that 54 percent of likely voters believe ballot box fraud will be part of the 2024 presidential election, including 30 percent who think fraud is “very likely.”

In the survey, 41 percent said cheating was not likely in 2024, or that figure 24 percent believe it is “not likely at all.”

Fifty-two percent also believe cheating affected “some races” in November’s midterm elections, 38 percent said it had no effect, and 10 percent said they weren’t sure, the poll found.

That result is dwarfed by the 60 percent who believed voter fraud affected the April midterms.

The survey of 1,003 likely American voters was conducted on June 7 and June 11 and had a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.

A majority, 56 percent, think it is likely that state and federal officials will ignore evidence of widespread voter fraud. In comparison, the survey found that 40 percent do not feel officials will ignore such evidence. Overall, majorities represent all races: 57 percent of Whites, 54 percent of Blacks, and 53 percent of all other minorities think that signs of fraud would be ignored.

By party, 51 percent of Republicans think evidence of fraud will be ignored, compared to 28 percent of Democrats and 30 percent of independent voters.

The Election Fraud Database compiled by the Heritage Foundation reports 1,235 cases of suspected fraud out of 1,432 convictions, representing a sample of “recent proven instances of Election fraud across the country.”

Still, it does not say which election cycle or periods are covered in that result.

Regarding which party voters trust more in the election, 40 percent trust the Republicans, 39 percent the Democrats, and 20 percent said they weren’t sure.
