We asked our respondents in a period of three weeks after the election in which states they thought fraud determined the 2022 midterm outcome. Among those who think fraud happened, the average respondents selected five states. The most commonly selected states were a combination of competitive states (Arizona, Pennsylvania, Georgia, etc.) and states that are deeply blue (California, New York, etc.). This suggests that election skeptics see fraud as both a way of swinging close elections and as a manifestation of partisan animosity.
Indeed, asking people how fraud on a massive scale could happen in this country, the most common response was blaming the out party.
