Majority Does Not Believe In Widespread Voter Fraud


A majority of Americans do not believe that millions of illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 presidential election, so says new poll.


According to a Quinnipiac University survey that was released last Wednesday, 61 % of responders said they do not believe President Trump’s claim that that 3 million to 5 million non-citizens voted in the presidential election.  A minority of 28%, however, remains convinced the claim is accurate, the poll finds.


The survey also revealed that Americans are divided on what they see as the biggest problem concerning presidential elections.  While 33% of responders believe that voter suppression is the largest problem, 30% are committed it is voter fraud; while 29% are more concerned about outside intervention in elections.


President Trump has repeatedly claimed that millions of illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 election, and has promised to launch a full investigation into the matter headed up by Vice President Mike Pence.

“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and … even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!” Trump said in a pair of tweets in January.


In a Sunday interview, he promised Pence would supervise a special commission to examine voter fraud, which Trump said is “really a bad situation, it’s really bad.”


The president’s claim about voter fraud — which has not been backed up by data — has been a topic of debate since his election.


Quinnipiac University poll surveyed a pool of 1,155 voters nationwide Feb. 2-6.  The margin of error is 2.9%

This type of outlandish theory is often brought to the public arena by conspiracy theorists such as Alex Jones who is a supporter of Trump.
