A new Morning Consult-Politico poll revealed a shocking 35% of registered voters believe the 2020 presidential election should be overturned.
The poll conducted Oct. 22-24 found that 43% of voters believe the results should “definitely not” be overturned, and another 12% said they should “probably not” be overturned. A total of 11% was unsure.
In a breakdown of major parties, 60% of Republicans said the election results definitely or probably should be overturned. Only 16% of Democrats and 27% of independents said they think the election results should be overturned.
Only 19% of registered voters believe it is very or somewhat likely the election results will be overturned based on what they have seen, read, or heard. A total of 71% said it is very unlikely or somewhat unlikely.
Asked whether the 2020 presidential elections was “free and fair,” 56% of registered voters said yes, “definitely” or “probably;” 37% said definitely not or probably not. A total of 7% didn’t know or had no opinion.
The results are surprising considering the amount of time since the 2020 election, especially as midterm elections are on the horizon. The threat that Republican voters stay away from polls out of fear of unfair elections could be detrimental to Republicans’ push to take back the House next year.
