Senate Republican leader contradicts Trump and sees “very little” likelihood of voter fraud in the U.S.

The Republican minority leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, considers “very rare” episodes of electoral fraud in the United States, a statement that clashes head-on with the party line, which has closed ranks around former President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theory that the 2020 elections were stolen from him.

McConnell, a senator from Kentucky, has pointed out that while on “occasions” such fraud may occur, he has remarked that it is “very unlikely” to happen, so he does not consider that American democracy is at risk, after being asked about an NBC poll in which the main concern of respondents was the alleged threat to electoral processes.

However, he considers that this is “an important issue” since “for the first time in the history of the United States” after the 2020 elections there were those who tried to torpedo the orderly transfer of power in the White House, although he has stressed that those efforts were “thwarted.”

“I guess that had some impact on the poll, but I think we have a very solid democracy. I don’t think it’s one of the things we have to worry about, I wouldn’t worry about it,” he said.

The NBC poll reflects that 57 percent of U.S. voters favor the investigation against Trump for possible irregularities, after the FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago mansion, from which were seized about twenty boxes full of folders with classified documentation, some of them labeled top secret.
