We asked approximately 6,000 Americans if they thought voter fraud occurred in the 2022 midterms. Despite a consistent lack of evidence, large numbers of Americans think the midterms were marred by fraud: 56% of Republicans, 33% of pure Independents and 8% of Democrats.
In a followup question 42% of Republicans thought that fraud changed the results of the 2022 midterms, while 24% of pure Independents and 4% of Democrats held this view. These results suggest that mistrust in elections is not just a partisan issue, with nearly a quarter of independents questioning the legitimacy of election outcomes.
A sizable portion of Americans remain unconvinced that American elections are robust and fair.
