It is a significant rise from April, when 51% people had said, “Biden’s election was tainted by cheating.”  

It comes as Trump has continued to raise election integrity charges. The Democrats have also been trying to force through liberal poll reforms and shut down GOP state voting reforms.

The new survey’s participants said that they are not very enthusiastic about efforts by Biden and Democrats to expand Covid-era voting by mail as they believe it will “lead to more cheating in elections.”   

It seems to be a rejection of sorts of the features in House and Senate election reform bills supported by Biden.   

The latest survey suggests that partisans remain divided on the issue.
