Views on the Accuracy of the 2022 Midterms

We asked people about the accuracy of the 2022 midterms before and after the election. On average, Democrats always agreed that the election would/will reflect the preferences of those who voted, while Republicans moved from agreeing with this statement to being uncertain on average. Independent attitudes were mostly static over the period at a level between agreement and uncertainty.

This is consistent with a winner effect, where Democratic and Republican views moved in alignment with results of election day. As we will show in the coming weeks, independents represent a large pool of voters who lack trust in the system.
