Three quarters of Republican voters support state efforts to reexamine votes from last fall’s presidential election and over half believe the audits will change the outcome of the election, a poll published Wednesday suggests, after a previous survey found 3 in 10 Republicans believe a conspiracy theory that Trump could be “reinstated” this year as conservatives across the country lobby for audits in attempts to overturn the election results.
74% of Republican voters support state efforts to review the 2020 presidential election and 51% expected a change in outcome, according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll of 1,994 registered voters conducted Jun. 11-13.
By comparison, just 23% of Democrats support the state audits while more Independents (40%) are in favor of the reviews than are not (38%).
Even fewer Democrats (16%) and Independents (24%) actually expect a change in outcome to come from the audits compared to Republicans.
