Half of Trump’s supporters don’t trust the vote count, new poll finds

votingNEW YORK — Donald Trump is making the unprecedented assertion that the general election “is going to be rigged,” and many people who are drawn to his presidential campaign have major doubts about the accuracy of the Nov. 8 vote.

Only about one-third of Republicans say they have a great deal or quite a bit of confidence that votes on Election Day will be counted fairly, according to a poll from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Half the people who have a favorable opinion of the Republican nominee say they have little to no confidence in the integrity of the vote count, the poll finds.

“Trump has finally said something that that I’ve been thinking for years,” said Jonathan Robinson, 30, a Trump supporter from Columbia, Missouri. “I don’t think the votes have been counted properly for years. There’s voter fraud and attempts to game the system. I don’t trust it at all.”

Such fears of voter fraud are unfounded. There is no evidence it is a widespread problem in the United States. A study by a Loyola Law School professor found that out of 1 billion votes cast in all American elections between 2000 and 2014, there were only 31 known cases of impersonation fraud.

    It is obvious that this guy did not check voters against the death registry in Los Angeles County where he lives and works. If he had he would have would reported that my deceased grandmother voted from 2000 to 2010 and only stopped when I was asked to submit the vote in 2010. Many more instances of this in Los Angeles County.

    With a 110% voter turn outs and no votes cast
    for Mitt Romney . . . in more than one instance one
    has to hold the voting process in SERIOUS doubt!

    …… 31 is waaaaaaaaaay still TOO MANY nonetheless !!

  • RuFus92

    You need to broaden this type of survey to all voters and see if the vote count is trusted. I can find very few voters whom admit voting for Obama the 1st or 2nd time yet there he is big as life and twice as evil as ever working to destroy this country. We have the dead voting in CO. and noncitizen immigrant killers voting for Gods sake.” WAKE UP; THE GAME IS RIGGED ! ! !! “

    THE MARINE THAT WAS BANNED FROM HIS DAUGHTERS GRADUATION, FOR SUING THE SYSTEM IN LAVEATA, MA. FOR MAKING THE STUDENTS STUDY AND PRACTICE ISLAM NEED TO BE REALLY LOOKED INTO. PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE SHOULD BE FIRED.

    HAVE WE BEEN SET UP FOR A MUSLIM INVASION, BY HILLIARY, OBAMA, SOROS, AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA? IF NOT. READ ALL THE WHYS BELOW.

    WHY HAS HILLIARY, OBAMA, KERRY AND THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO HELP THE RADICAL MUSLIMS.

    A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY, THAT WILL INCLUDE OBAMA AND ALL HE HAS AROUND HIM IN DC.

    WHY DID THIS ADMINSTRATION TRY AND BUY ALL AMMO?

    WHY TRADE 5 TERRIOST FROM CUBA FOR ONE TRAITOR?

    WHY TRY AND TAKE OUR GUNS? HITLER DID, & HISTORY TELLS US WHAT HAPPENED THERE.

    WHY ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 35 MUSLIM CAMPS HERE IN THE STATES?

    WHY ARE THERE 5 MUSLIM CAMPS IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC? ARE THEY TO TAKE WASHINGTON?

    WHY BUILD A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, SOME MORE THAN ONE, WITH ARMED GUARDS? ARE THEY TO HOLD MUSLIMS?

    WHY ARE THEY BRINGING THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MUSLIMS HERE?

    WHY IS THE TAX PAYER HAVING TO FEED, CLOTH & HOUSE THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF MUSLIMS BEING BROUGHT HERE?

    WHY GIVE THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS BROUGHT IN FREE HEALTH CARE, SPENDING THOUSANDS FOR HOSPITAL CARE?

    WHY ARE THE ILLEGALS BEING TREATED BETTER THAN OUR VETERANS.

    WHY STOP THE TANK AND PLANE SHIPPMENT TO EGYPT, WHEN THEIR ARMY KICK THE RADICALS OUT?

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT SEND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP THE RADICALS IN IRAN, A COUNTRY OUT TO DESTROY US?

    WHY ARE WE SENDING BILLIONS TO ARAB COUNTRIES, AND LETING OUR COUNTRY GO TO POT?

    WHY DONT THEY ENFORCE THE LAW BARRING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY?

    WHY IS THE MUSLIM MAJOR IN TEXAS LIVING THAT KILLED 14 SOLDIERS AND WOUNDED A LOT MORE?

    WHY ARE THEY RELEASING ALL MUSLIMS IN CUBA TO GO BACK INTO ACTION TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS?

    WHY DONT WE HANG ALL MUSLIMS CAUGHT AND BURY THEM WITH PIG PARTS, LIKE GENERAL PERSHING DID IN THE PHILLIPENS?

    WHY WAS OBAMA ALLOWED TO SWEAR IN CARLOYN WALKER AS JUDGE IN BROOKLIN USING THE QURAN?

    I SAY, ARM ALL OUR TROUPS TO PREVENT A MUSLIM TAKEOVER. THINK IT IS IMPOSSIBLE. I CAN TAKE 100 AND TAKE ANY BASE IN 1 HOUR.

    BETTER COAT ALL YOU AMMO WITH PIGS BLOOD OR GREASE, THINGS DO NOT LOOK GOOD.

    JUST PRAY THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ELECTED AND IS ABLE TO TAKE OVER AS OUR PRESIDENT.

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLE 2015 AND YOU JUST MIGHT KNOW WHY.

    BELOW IS A GOOD REASON WHY I BELIEVE THAT A TAKEOVER TRY IS POSSIBLE. HOW CAN THE BIASED NEWS SAY OBAMA IS NOT A MUSLIM.

    THE LAST WHY, WHY DONT THE BIASED NEWS MEDIA REPORT ALL THIS???????????

    PRESIDENT OBAMA:

    IS this is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorists: YOU

    * spoke these words at an Islamic dinner -“I am one of you.”

    * spoke of “My Muslim faith.”

    * gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.

    * wrote that in the event of a conflict- “I will stand with the Muslims.”

    * assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that – “I am a Muslim.”

    * bowed in submission before the Saudi King.

    * sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity and professing Marxism.

    * exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.

    * purposefully omitted – “endowed by our Creator ” – from your recitation of The Declaration Of Independence.

    * mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount while repeatedly referring to the ‘HOLY’ Qur’an.

    * raveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States of America.

    * instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center.

    * refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host an Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.

    * ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.

    * appointed anti-Christian fanatics to your Czar Corps.

    * said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.

    * as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

    * was the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.

    * curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorists.

    * refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.

    * has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of hypothetical human-rights abuses.

    * I who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.

    * funneled $900 Million in U.S. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

    * ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

    * directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim community.

    * funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across our country.

    * follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.

    * departs for Hawaii over the Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism for NOT participating in seasonal WH religious events.

    * was uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your non-response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

    * appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    * said this country is not a Christian nation.

    * said the Muslim call to worship is the most beautiful sound on earth.

    * GAVE 150 BILLION PLUS TO IRAN.

    * RANSOMED 4 PEOPLE FOR 400 MILLION.

    * ARE YOU, KERRY, HILLIARY & THE BIASED NEWS MEDIATO TRYING TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY?

    VOTE DONALD TRUMP.

    It is not who votes, or how they vote, it is who counts the votes that determines who won the election.

  • SmithWinston6478

    As a polling place worker during obola’s second election, numerous voters requested assistance because their electronic summary page did NOT properly reflect their presidential selections. It’s doubtful obola was legally elected, and the chances of an un-tampered vote this time is slim.

  • Glenda Jordan

    The stupidity never ceases lol. “No evidence it is a widespread problem in the US”….Really!?? Just last week even Liberal News Media reported on the fraud in Co (first time I recall truth from them in years) many people that had died several years ago had voted in 2012!! I’m certain they would of voted for Hilter 2016 had this not been found out…lie, cheat, and steal whatever it takes for them demrats to win. VOTE TRUMP and WEAR RED!

  • Rodney Steward

    Can’t go by this Loyola Lawyer, this is another school of socialist training! There were over 300,000 dead and repeat votes in the last election!

  • Teserra

    We have already seen the voter fraud used against Sanders. We have seen how Hilary cheats at everything she does- especially in debates. She has Lied, stolen from the WH, lost six Billion Dollars from the State Department, killed four Americans, sold arms to the enemy, pay to play, wants to crush us with more Refugees that clash with our culture and raise our taxes to pay for them. We have seen how the FBI and this Administration is filled with Corruption. We have seen how Obama published his book and stated in public forums that he was born in Kenya- words out of his own mouth. Find it in videos on you tube. The corruption is rampant. Why would anyone in their right mind trust that this election is not already won? I also believe that the last election was also fixed. It’s time for a REVOLUTION. Clinton is a CRIMINAL in more ways than one!

    • SmithWinston6478

      T, Agreed 100%! How can any rational American adult look upon Slithery Hillary as presidential material? If she is declared winner, it will be confirmation that the Constitutional Republic we grew up is dead. Tyrants financed by Nazi collaborator George (György Schwartz) Soros will have assumed control by subterfuge. The ‘difference it makes’ is the future of America’s citizens.

    “There is no evidence it is a widespread problem in the United States…between 2000 and 2014, there were only 31 known cases of impersonation fraud.”

    And just because that’s all they KNOW of I am supposed to feel comfortable with the system? Is that all they knew of or all they cared to investigate? How come we keep hearing about journalists and reporters uncovering cases of fraud?

      NOBODY in their right mind should trust THE SYSTEM PERIOD !!

  • David Stewart

    Must learn Spanish; was denied a vote in 2012 at polls; address on driver’s license was not current; voted mail-in; due to administrative blunder, was not counted. But BO won anyway with over 100% of the vote in several states!

    • Teserra

      And all the Military votes magically burned up in a plane crash. Don’t forget that one….just like Seal Team SIX.

    • Rodney Steward

      NO, they must learn English, and if they’re not legal, NO VOTE PERIOD!! Go to Russia and try to vote with a Russian driver license, they’ll want to know where U got the license if U can’t speak Russian!!

    • snowyriver

      When the vote count is over 100% of registered voters, that is fraud.. When the vote count in a precinct with 20,000 voters is 100% for one candidate (not one person got drunk and pushed the wrong button) that is voter fraud. Obama won with many precincts showing 100% for Obama, not one vote for his opponent.. VOTER FRAUD BIG TIME.

    I know I don’t trust it!
