Rasmussen Reports released results of a telephone and online survey that shows 36 percent of likely U.S. voters believe China’s influence in the United States will increase during Joe Biden’s administration. Forty-seven percent believe it is likely China interfered in this year’s election.

According to the poll, 19 percent say they believe China’s influence will decrease while 31 percent say it will remain the same. Fifteen percent are not sure.

Forty-two percent of voters say it is unlikely China illegally interfered in the 2020 election.

Sixty-five percent of Republicans say it is likely China interfered. However, the number is identical at 38 percent when it comes to Democrats and unaffiliated voters who believe the same.

That same gap exists with voters who believe China’s influence will increase under Biden. Sixty-two percent of Republicans say it will grow while just 20 percent of Democrats do and 26 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.
