Here are the results of Rasmussen’s survey:
• 42% strongly agree with Mr. Trump’s statement and 19% “partially” agree.
• 34% disagree with Mr. Trump’s statement.
• 84% of Republicans agree with Mr. Trump.
• 56% of voters agree with President Joe Biden’s statement that America is “facing the most significant test of our democracy since the Civil War” on electoral reforms.
