Poll: 70 percent of Americans support voting by mail

A strong majority of voters support having a vote-by-mail option in 2020 over fears they could contract the coronavirus by going in-person to a polling station, a new poll finds.

The latest Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll finds that 70 percent of voters support a mail-in option, including 88 percent of Democrats, 71 percent of independents and 50 percent of Republicans.

Seventy-five percent of voters said they're at least a little bit concerned about catching the coronavirus if vote-by-mail is not an option.

President Trump on Thursday raised the possibility of delaying the 2020 election, saying that mail-in balloting is rife with fraud. Trump, who is trailing presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the polls, does not have the authority to delay the election.
