Poll reveals alarming level of fear of whether 2024 elections will be 'fair,' ballot counting accurate

A new poll released Thursday revealed an alarming level of fear among Americans over whether the 2024 elections will be “fair” and if ballots will be counted accurately.

According to the Suffolk University/USA Today poll, 46% of registered Republicans said they had no confidence ballots would be accurately counted and reported after people across the country head to the polls in November.

When narrowed to those supporting former President Donald Trump, who argued the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from him, 52% said they lacked confidence ballots would be counted accurately.

The poll found a stark divide, however, when it came to registered Democrats, 81% of whom said they were “very” confident the 2024 elections would be “fair.” Just 14% of Republicans felt the same.
