More than half of American voters expect the highly consequential 2024 presidential election to be marred with cheating and fraud and believe mail-in voting impedes election integrity, according to a recently conducted survey.
“How likely is it that the outcome of the 2024 presidential election will be affected by cheating?” Rasmussen Reports asked 1,029 voters on Nov. 13 to Nov. 15.
Fifty-six percent of respondents believe cheating is likely to affect the election results while 31 percent anticipate election fraud is “very likely” to skew the outcome.
Additionally, the survey found a majority of voters believe mail-in ballots facilitate voter fraud.
Fifty-one percent believe efforts by Biden and congressional Democrats to expand COVID-era voting will “lead to more cheating elections.”
Thirty-seven percent say election cheating is unlikely to affect the 2024 outcome while 16 percent consider it “Not At All Likely.”
The survey confirms partisans remain divided on the 2020 election results, however, 95 percent agree with the vague goal of ending election cheating.
Rasmussen found similar results in a survey conducted about election integrity over the summer.
In June, 54 percent of voters believed it was likely cheating would affect the election in 2024.
