A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 90 percent of likely U.S. voters think it is important to prevent cheating in election. Seventy-nine percent said it is very important. Just seven percent said it is not important to prevent election cheating.
Seventy-four percent of voters said requiring a photo ID to vote is reasonable. Nineteen percent disagree.
Forty-nine percent of likely voters said it is a “dangerous conspiracy theory” to believe cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, but 36 percent disagree and 14 percent said they are not sure.
Regardless, 60 percent of voters agree opponents of requiring a photo ID just want to make it easy to cheat. Forty-eight percent strongly agree with that statement.
Despite Democrat claims that voter ID laws are “racist,” 72 percent of black voters and 79 percent of other minorities agree that requiring a photo ID to vote is reasonable.
Not surprisingly, Democrats are less likely than others to believe it is very important to prevent cheating in election. Just 69 percent of Democrats said it is very important to prevent cheating in election while 88 percent of Republicans and 81 percent of unaffiliated voters said so.
While 62 percent of Democrats said it is a “dangerous conspiracy theory” to believe last year’s presidential election was impacted by cheating, only 40 percent of Republicans and 44 percent of unaffilitaed voters agree.
