More than half of Republicans would support suspending 2020 election if Trump proposed it, poll finds

A newly released poll reveals that more than 50 percent of Republicans would support postponing the 2020 presidential election if President Donald Trump proposed it to ensure that only eligible United States citizens were allowed to vote. Yet examination after examination of voter fraud claims reveal fraud is very rare, voter impersonation is almost non-existent, and much of the problems associated with alleged fraud relates to unintentional mistakes by voters or election administrators.

The survey also started with a series of questions about typical arguments made by Trump concerning voter fraud, including whether Trump won the popular vote in the 2016 election and whether millions of illegal immigrants vote.

A majority of Republicans believe undocumented immigrants voted in the 2016 election and would support postponing the 2020 contest until the USA could ensure only eligible citizens cast ballots, according to a new poll.

The poll surveyed 1,325 Americans, with 650 identifying as Republican.

The grim possibility that a majority of adherents of one of the country's two major political parties thinks elections are so debased that suspending them would be no big deal can not exclusively be attributed to Trump, of course.

Fifty-six percent said that they would support the delay if both the president and Congress supported it.

President Donald Trump has repeatedly, and falsely, claimed millions voted illegally.

Seventy-three percent believe voter fraud happens somewhat or very often. Any Republican who is not supporting this president with no questions asked is going to find themselves drummed out of the party. And this is to say nothing of the various legal and constitutional complications that would immediately become clear.

The survey noted that the Republican voters who said they were younger, less educated, strongly identified with the GOP and less invested in political news were the ones most likely to agree with Trump's fraud claims.

Nevertheless, we do not believe that these findings can be dismissed out of hand.
