After 2020, many Americans are wary of the next election. Now we know, it may be for good reason.

Because an alarming election integrity report is taking the country by storm.

A new poll released Thursday found that Americans are concerned about whether the 2024 elections will be “fair” and ballots will be counted correctly.

According to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, 46% of registered Republicans indicated they had no faith that ballots will be accurately counted and reported after people vote in November across the country.

When the poll was limited to supporters of former President Donald Trump, who claimed the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from him, 52% expressed doubt that ballots would be counted correctly.

The poll indicated a sharp gap among registered Democrats, with 81% saying they were “very” convinced the 2024 elections will be “fair.”

Only 14% of Republicans agreed.

It also discovered that a great majority of voters (83%) are concerned about “threats to democracy,” but they are divided on what they consider to be the actual threat.

A plurality of 18% said Trump was the most dangerous threat, while 10% said government corruption and dysfunction were the most dangerous, and 8% said immigration and open borders were the most dangerous.

When asked which party was more to blame for the threat to democracy, people were evenly divided, with 40% blaming Democrats and 40% blaming Republicans.

A 59% majority believed it was “appropriate” for those involved in the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the United States Capitol to face criminal charges, while 32% said it was inappropriate and should be reversed.

However, nearly three years later, fewer Americans blamed Trump for the unrest. 43% thought the former president bore “a lot of blame,” down from 48% in 2021.

In both years, 28% of Americans believed Trump had nothing to do with it.

Concerning Trump’s prosecutions in Georgia, Washington, D.C., and New York, 52% believed they were justified, with 96% of Democrats agreeing.

43 percent believed the prosecutions were inappropriate and should be dropped, with 85% of Republicans agreeing.

Independents were divided 48%-42% on whether the prosecutions were appropriate, with 9% undecided.

In a hypothetical head-to-head confrontation, Trump led President Biden 44%-43%, but that lead widened to 39%-37% when respondents were asked about a third-party choice (17%).

As we stare down a rematch in 2024, it should concern Democrats that after pushing wild accusations against Trump, their candidate is still losing.

Shouldn’t that tell you something?
