Fixing the election

Majority of Republicans fear voter fraud on Nov. 8

Donald Trump’s continuing claims that the Nov. 8 presidential election might be rigged in Hillary Clinton’s favor is resonating with some American voters, according to a recent poll conducted by Politico and The Morning Consult. In total, 41 percent of 1,999 registered voters surveyed from Oct. 13-15 said they think the election could be swiped from The Donald. That lack of confidence in the electoral system is particularly strong among Republicans, 73 percent of whom said Clinton could “steal” the election; 17 percent of Democrats who answered believed widespread voter fraud is feasible.
