Half of Republicans would back postponing 2020 election if Trump proposed it

President Donald Trump's warnings against voter fraud stuck a chord with many Republicans, half of whom would support suspending the 2020 election until this problem is fixed.

According to a poll published by The Washington Post, 52 percent of Republicans said they would back a postponement of the next election if Trump called for it.

"People who believed that Trump won the popular vote, that there were millions of illegal votes in 2016, or that voter fraud is not rare were more likely to support postponing the election".

Pollsters found 47 percent of Republicans think Trump won the popular vote. Even more (68 percent) believe that millions of illegal immigrants voted and almost two-thirds of Republicans polled thought voter fraud happens "somewhat or very often".

It's no secret that American politics are divided-but a recent poll shows that division goes so far that at least one side would be willing to suspend democracy to further their agenda.

So it should perhaps be no great surprise that in a new survey of self-identified Republicans and leaners culled from a fairly large online sample, 68 percent of the respondents bought into the Trump/Kobach nightmare vision of noncitizens voting in massive numbers.

Dozens of state election officials from both parties have rebuked Trump's claim that millions of illegal votes were cast during the 2016 presidential race.
