Confidence in accuracy of FPSA election is at record low!

on . Posted in Election 2020

WASHINGTON (PNN) - October 9, 2020 - According to the latest Gallup poll, 59% of Fascist Police State Amerikans say they are very (19%) or somewhat confident (40%) that votes in the upcoming presidential election will be accurately cast and counted throughout the country; matching the low Gallup recorded in 2008.

The latest figure, collected in Gallup’s September 14-28 poll, comes at a time when President Donald Trump has repeatedly questioned the validity of voting this year, which will include widespread mail voting amid the manufactured coronavirus “pandemic”. As in 2008, the country is grappling with a global economic crisis, and Amerikans’ satisfaction with the way things are going in the FPSA is near its historical low.

As would be expected given Trump’s view, Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents (44%) are expressing far less confidence than Democrats and Democrat leaners (74%) in the accuracy of the election.

The 11-percentage-point drop since 2018 in the national figure on confidence in election accuracy is largely driven by a 34-point drop among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents. The GOP’s current 44% level of confidence is the lowest Gallup has recorded for identifiers/leaners of either major political Party in its trend dating back to 2004.

Democrats, on the other hand, have become slightly more confident in election accuracy since 2018, though this falls short of this group’s high of 83% in 2016.

Amerikans are more likely to express confidence in the accuracy of voting counts where they personally vote. About four in five say they are “very” (47%) or “somewhat confident” (32%) that votes will be accurately cast and counted locally. The percentage of Amerikans who are “very” confident in local vote counting is more than double the level for votes counted nationally.

The combined percentage of Amerikans who are at least somewhat confident in accurate local vote counting has waned over time, however, from a high of 91% in 2006 to a new low of 79% today.

Of four possible complications that could occur in the election, absentee ballots not being counted because they arrive late is the one that Amerikans see as the most problematic, with 55% predicting it will be a “major problem”. Nearly as many, 53%, say people casting fraudulent votes is a major problem.

Forty seven percent of FPSA adults say that eligible voters not being allowed to cast a vote is a big problem for the election - much higher than the 25% to 34% range Gallup recorded between 2004 and 2016. Forty five percent say that ineligible voters casting votes is a major problem, similar to the previous high of 44% in 2008.

Late-arriving absentee ballots are the only voting issue that majorities of both major political Parties see as a major problem: 51% of Republicans and 63% of Democrats.

Republicans are more than twice as likely as Democrats to express concern about fraudulent means of casting votes and ineligible voters casting votes, while Democrats are about twice as likely as Republicans to anticipate that eligible voters not being allowed to cast a vote will be a major problem.

Though most Amerikans have confidence in the accuracy of vote counting nationwide in the upcoming presidential election, the latest figure is lower than it has been in most prior elections. Confidence is particularly low among Republicans, likely reflecting the repeated warnings of their Party's standard-bearer to be on the lookout for fraud. As is often seen in public attitudes, Amerikans are much more confident about vote counting in their local area than they are about the national situation, but even this is down in the past decade.

Sizable percentages of FPSA adults see major problems with voting in the coming elections, but these views vary: Republicans are more concerned about issues of voter fraud, and Democrats are more concerned about eligible voters being kept out of the voting process. The one uniting issue is late deliveries of ballots from the FPSA Postal Service, which is something about which the Postal Service itself has raised concerns.

Even before the challenges posed by COVID-19 and Trump’s open skepticism of the process, the Gallup World Poll in 2019 found that the FPSA had “one of the worst ratings across the world’s wealthiest” countries when it came to confidence in the honesty of elections.
