Most Still See Voter Fraud as Serious Problem

Some groups are suing the federal government over President Trump’s voter fraud commission, claiming privacy and civil rights violations, among others. While a majority of voters still considers voter fraud a serious problem in the United States, a growing number are now downplaying the severity of the issue.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say voter fraud is at least a somewhat serious problem in America today, with 27% who say it’s a Very Serious problem. That’s down slightly from 58% in October  and is the lowest finding to date. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
