A new Rasmussen Reports survey released Wednesday found that most likely voters this election knew who they were going to vote for a month ago.
58% of likely voters reportedly decided their candidate a month ago, while 18% made up their minds within the final month of the election, 22% within the final week, and 9% on Election Day. This, however, is unsurprising due to the nearly 100 million people who cast their votes before November 3 this election cycle.
The survey from the pollster also asked likely voters about how confident the are that their ballots are going to be counted correctly. It should be noted that ballots are still being counted in many states because the unprecedented amount of ballots sent through the mail slowed down the delivery time of the U.S. Postal Service.
According to the survey, 28% of likely voters are not confident that their votes will be counted correctly while 71% are confident. Further, 15% of respondents are reported to be “Not At All Confident,” with 47% being “Very Confident.”
In explaining its data, Rasmussen mentioned that 94% of respondents told them their ballots would be correctly tallied two weeks before Election Day in a previous survey.
The national telephone and online survey of 1,000 likely voters occurred between November 5 and 8 and it has a three-point margin of error with a 95% level of confidence.

Videotapes from Jan. 6 Committee Witness Interviews Vanish
Videotapes containing witness interviews conducted by the Democrat-led January 6 congressional committee have disappeared. The chairman of the House Administration oversight subcommittee, Rep. Barry Loudermilk (R-Ga.), expressed his apprehension on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show.
According to Loudermilk, all videotapes of depositions have vanished, raising questions about the preservation of crucial evidence. He argued that, under House rules, these tapes qualified as congressional evidence, especially since some clips were aired during hearings. Loudermilk contended that the tapes should have been preserved by the now-defunct Jan. 6 committee and its chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.).
Loudermilk’s revelation has broader implications, potentially impacting criminal trials in both state court in Georgia and federal court in Washington, where individuals, including former President Donald Trump, face charges related to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, 2021. Notably, Trump’s legal team had recently requested evidence from the Jan. 6 committee but was denied by a judge.
The situation takes a further twist as Loudermilk disclosed that the J6 committee had sent certain evidence, such as transcripts, to the Biden White House and the Homeland Security Department. Shockingly, these transcripts have now been returned to Loudermilk’s GOP-led subcommittee almost entirely redacted, preventing the disclosure of their contents.
The lack of records regarding witnesses, their statements, and the extensive redactions have raised concerns among House Republicans. Loudermilk emphasized that these documents belong to the House and should not have been sent in such a heavily redacted form. The chairman questioned the motives behind the redactions, asking why a Democrat-run House was allowed to have unredacted documents while a Republican committee’s efforts were obstructed. This development adds another layer of complexity to the ongoing investigations into the events surrounding January 6, 2021.
