More Than Half of Republicans Would Support Postponing the 2020 Election

More than half of Republican voters surveyed said they would be in favour of suspending the 2020 election if Donald Trump asked for more time to weed out illegal voters, a new poll shows.

A majority of Republicans believe undocumented immigrants voted in the 2016 election and would support postponing the 2020 contest until the USA could ensure only eligible citizens cast ballots, according to a new poll.

In the poll, 47 percent of Republicans incorrectly believed that Trump won the popular vote.

According to the survey, 73 percent of Republicans believe that voter fraud - which is extremely rare - happens somewhat or very often.

The poll was conducted among 625 adults who identified as Republicans or said they lean Republican between June 5th and 20th.

Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, a Democrat, has declined to comply with a request by the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, which is investigating possible voter fraud.

Mr Trump has repeatedly claimed, without evidence, millions of people voted illegally - and he would have won if their votes weren't counted. In fact, his rival Hillary Clinton received nearly 3 million more votes.

Trump has claimed that he would have won the popular vote if it were not for widespread voting fraud.

Quick with a caveat, the pair noted that their survey "is only measuring reactions to a hypothetical situation".

The poll results found that 52 percent of Republican would support an election postponement if President Trump proposed the idea, and 56 percent of Republicans would back a postponement if Congressional Republicans and President Trump proposed it.

"Nevertheless, we do not believe that these findings can be dismissed out of hand", they added. At a minimum, they show that a substantial number of Republicans are amenable to violations of democratic norms that are more flagrant than what is typically proposed (or studied).
