As the dust settles in the wake of the disputed Nov. 3 presidential election, an increasing number of Americans are sceptical of its outcome, with more voters now favouring forensic audits to affirm the authenticity of the stated results.
A majority of likely U.S. voters — 55 percent — support forensic audits to ensure there was no voter fraud, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll. Twenty-nine percent oppose such audits, and 17 percent are not sure how they feel.
The poll, which surveyed 900 likely voters, was conducted June 20-21 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
According to the report, a whopping 41 percent of likely voters do not believe Democrat Joe Biden won the presidential election fairly.
This is a significant increase since February, when just 34 percent said they believed fraud affected the outcome of the race.
In Rasmussen’s April poll, that number had climbed to 51 percent.
A solid majority (57 percent) of independent voters also want a forensic audit of the November election.
In the latest poll, more Republicans (71 percent) than Democrats said they support forensic audits, like the one being conducted in Arizona. However, a surprisingly high amount of Democrats (38 percent) also support such audits.
A forensic audit is different from a vote recount, which merely recounts the same ballots (including batches that could potentially be marred by fraudulent votes).
A forensic audit includes a thorough examination of voting machines, including:
- Analyzing if election equipment software and hardware were vulnerable to hacking.
- Confirming that no votes were switched during the vote count.
- Testing that tabulators were not sending or receiving information over the internet during the vote count.

Just as voter sentiment has shifted since November, so have the narratives being pushed by Democrats and their corporate media partners.
Their first reaction was to claim, in unison, that there was no voter fraud and to vehemently attack anyone who suggested otherwise.
After a while, they switched to insisting that even if there were voter fraud, it was not enough to overturn the election.
Now, the tactic is to smear anyone who questions the outcome of the election as a “domestic terrorist” trying to “subvert democracy.”
In other words, you’re attacking democracy itself if you’re concerned about the bizarre irregularities of the election, including stunning revelations uncovered in the Arizona audit.
A security alarm inexplicably went off last weekend at a warehouse in Fulton County, Georgia, where 147,000 absentee ballots from the 2020 election are being housed.
The ballots are in the process of being unsealed and examined as part of a judge-approved audit for potential voter fraud.
Fulton County officials confirmed last week that the alarm was “activated” on May 29 but did not say who the culprit was, WXIA-TV in Atlanta reported Tuesday.
