WASHINGTON, July 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- After reviewing every claim of fraud and irregularities brought by Donald Trump and his supporters in all 64 cases challenging the 2020 election, a group of notable conservatives has reached the "unequivocal" conclusion that Trump's claims of election fraud are unsupported by evidence.

Key Points: 
  • Each has worked in Republican politics, been appointed to office by Republicans, or is otherwise associated with the GOP.
  • Several have worked as Republican poll workers or assisted in election day operations monitoring voting.
  • But they expressed deep concern over recent polls showing these unproven claims have significantly impacted Americans' confidence in election results.
  • For example, Trump supporters called Nevada "the big treasure trove of illegal balloting," yet they failed to produce any evidence to support those claims.
