According to a new survey from the Yankelovich Center at UC San Diego, the partisan gap of trust in the integrity of U.S. elections grew wider in the 2022 midterm elections.

The survey results showed Democrats are over twice as likely to view the results of this November’s election as accurate, whereas Republicans are more than five times as likely to suspect significant fraud.

The survey also showed that regardless of partisanship, voters tend to have more faith in their own state's elections than others.
