A new poll says over half of GOP voters would approve postponing the 2020 election until the imagined problem of widespread illegal voting can be solved, Washington Post reports.
The survey polled a sample of 1,325 Americans from June 5 through 20. It focused on 650 respondents who identify with/lean towards the Republican Party.
Respondents were asked many questions, including if they believe Trump won the popular vote, whether millions of illegal immigrants voted, and what they believe the frequency of voter fraud is. It also asked:
“If Donald Trump were to say that the 2020 presidential election should be postponed until the country can make sure that only eligible American citizens can vote, would you support or oppose postponing the election?”
“What if both Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress were to say that the 2020 presidential election should be postponed until the country can make sure that only eligible American citizens can vote? Would you support or oppose postponing the election?”
Nearly half of Republicans polled (47 percent) said Trump won the popular vote. 68 percent said that voter fraud happens somewhat or very often (73 percent).
52 percent said that they would endorse postponing the 2020 election, and 56 percent said they would do so if both Trump and Republicans in Congress agreed.
