According to a brand new Rasmussen Poll, 61 percent of likely voters are in total agreement with former President Donald Trump on the need of state election reform.
The poll was conducted not long after Trump put out a statement on July 6 saying, “Election reform must happen in swing states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona where voters have lost confidence in their electoral process.”
Here’s a look at how the poll breaks down via Newsmax:
- 42% strongly agree with Trump’s statement and 19% “somewhat” agree.
- 34% disagree with Trump’s statement.
- 84% of Republicans agree with Trump.
- 56% of likely voters agree with President Joe Biden’s statement that America is “facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War” regarding election reforms.
- 33% “strongly” agree with Biden, while 23% “somewhat” agree.
- 37% disagree with Biden.
- 82% of Democrats agree with the president.
- 63% of independents agree with Trump about election reform, compared to 41% who agree with Biden’s statement.
The poll was conducted between the dates of July 15 and 18. A total of 1,000 likely voters took part in the poll. The margin of error for the poll is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
The former president is absolutely correct. We’ve actually needed election integrity reform for quite some time, long before the controversy surrounding the 2020 election ever came about.
It’s time to take steps to ensure that every citizen’s voice is not only heard, but valued, playing a role in choosing not only who leads the country, but the direction our nation heads down in the future.
