Over half of Americans say presidential nominating system rigged: Poll

A recent opinion poll shows that over half of voters in the United States believe the system political parties select their candidates for the presidential election is “rigged.”

In a survey carried out by Reuters/ Ipsos on April 21-26, some 51 percent of respondents said the primary system was rigged against some candidates.

71 percent of voters said they preferred to select the party’s candidate themselves with a direct vote.

The poll also revealed that 27 percent of respondents did not clearly know how the primary system works while another 44 percent said they did not know the reason why the delegates act as intermediaries.

Some 1,582 Americans were surveyed in the online poll from April 21 to 26 with a credibility interval of 2.9 percentage points.
