McLaughlin Poll: Majority See Vote Fraud as National Problem

McLaughlin Poll: Majority See Vote Fraud as National Problem


John McLaughlin By and Tuesday, 15 December 2020 02:17 PM EST Current | Bio | Archive

There is one stunning result in the entire poll: Americans believe there was a serious vote fraud problem in the last election.

Although Election Day is over a month ago, when we asked — "Do you believe there was election and voter fraud in the presidential election between Joe Biden and Donald Trump back in November?" — the plurality of voters, 46%, said yes, with only 45% saying no.

Among American voters the majority is not convinced that voter fraud did not occur in their Presidential election. It is important to note that the poll model reflects the national popular vote of 51% Biden, 47% Trump.

It is concerning that in this poll where a majority of voted for Biden, they still can’t say it was an honest election.

As our presidential electors went this week to cast their votes, almost half the voters said there was clear election and voter fraud.

Since Election Day, and despite media spin the election fraud story is a big nothing, belief among voters of serious vote fraud has grown.

The results of this national survey of 1,000 likely voters, conducted between Dec. 9 and Dec. 13, have shown little difference on several key questions and reveals the same polarization that has dominated the electorate:

  • Only 35% say that the country is headed in the right direction. This is a decline from 41% in our Nov. 3 post-election poll.
  • The generic ballot for Congress remains a virtual dead heat with Republicans at 48% and Democrats at 46%. In our November 24th Newsmax national poll, Republicans led 47% to 45%.
  • The President’s positive job approval rating is 48% which is the same rating as our November 24th Newsmax national poll.
  • Speaker Pelosi remains a very unpopular figure among the majority of voters, 56%, having an unfavorable opinion with only 33% favorable to her, down from November 3rd with 36% favorable to 54% unfavorable.
  • The majority of 52%, want President Trump to continue to fight to change Washington. Back in September it was the same share at 52%.
  • The majority prefers free market capitalism to big government socialism 58% to 16%. Back in September they preferred capitalism over socialism 60% to 18%.
  • The plurality of voters prefers smaller government with fewer services over larger government 48% to 36%. In our November 3rd post-election poll, it was 53% to 46%.

On the economy the number of voters who say that the economy is in recession has fallen to its lowest point since March, 49%, when the virus shut down the economy.

Conversely those who say the economy is not in recession is at its highest point, 44%, since March.

Our monthly trend lines on this question reflect the V shaped economic recovery. However, their outlook on the future economy is now trending negative. On election day 48% of the voters said the economy was getting better and 52% said worse.

Now only 41% say that the economy is getting better, while 52% still say that it is getting worse.

More on Vote Fraud

Trump voters say that there was fraud 80% to 10%. But 16% of Biden voters said that there was fraud as well.

Republicans said that there was fraud 75% to 15%, but 41% of Independents agreed, as did 22% among Democrats.

Conservatives said that there was fraud 74% to 19%, but so did 30% among moderates, and 29% among liberals.

The majority among white voters, 53% to 37%, said that there was fraud. So did the majority among Hispanics 50% to 42% and 12% among African Americans.

Older voters over 55 years said there was fraud 50% to 42%, while 43% among voters under 55 years said there was fraud.

The majority among men said there was fraud 55% to 36%. Among women 38% said there was fraud.

55% among rural voters said there was fraud; 46% in the suburbs and 40% in urban areas.

It is not surprising that if President Trump were not to be re-elected, 56%, among Republican primary voters would vote for Donald Trump in 2024 out of a field of 14 potential candidates. This is an increase from 53% in the November 24th Newsmax poll. Vice President Mike Pence at 11%, and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, 5%, are the next highest vote getters.

Additionally, in defiance of the Big Tech censorship of President Trump, 40% among all voters say that they follow President Trump on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram which is the highest level that we have ever recorded.

Ironically, last month among 2024 Democratic primary voters, in the November Newsmax national poll, Kamala Harris led Michelle Obama 29% to 23% and all others were in single digits, but this month Michelle Obama leads 29% to 25% over Harris and all others are in single digits with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., at 7%.

Weeks have passed since the presidential election, but in spite of Big Media and Big Tech’s promotion of Joe Biden, more American voters believe the election was marred with fraud — and it’s growing.
