And they probably will.

While mail-in ballots have been touted as an ideal alternative to in-person voting during the coronavirus outbreak, Trump has continued to air unfounded concerns about the possibility of voter fraud.
A new Morning Consult poll suggests that voters are not buying the president’s argument, however, with the lion’s share of voters saying they believe Trump opposes mail-in voting because “he believes it will make it harder for him to win re-election.”
Published on Thursday, the new Morning Consult poll, which saw 1,994 registered voters surveyed between August 14 and 16, found that 51 percent of voters think Trump is afraid of losing the election, should widespread mail-in voting move forward.
Meanwhile, 37 percent said they think Trump genuinely believes mail-in voting will “increase voter fraud”. Another 12 percent said they did not know or had no opinion on the matter.
Meanwhile, a plurality of voters believe that recent operational changes implemented to the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) by Postmaster General Louis DeJoy are “politically motivated” and “designed to make it harder for Americans to vote by mail.”
Well, I for one am glad to see that most American voters are not buying Trump’s bullshit.
As usual, I wish these poll numbers were bigger on the side of the enlightened voters, but I guess there is just no educating some people.
