52 percent of Republicans said they would support the move if it was requested by Trump while 56 percent said they would back it if it was requested by both Trump and Congressional Republicans.
The poll was conducted from June 5 to 20 among 1,325 Americans.
So it should perhaps be no great surprise that in a new survey of self-identified Republicans and leaners culled from a fairly large online sample, 68 percent of the respondents bought into the Trump/Kobach nightmare vision of noncitizens voting in massive numbers.
But still, Trump's blunt assertion that his 2016 election had to overcome a vast voter-fraud conspiracy that almost succeeded has brought a latent prejudice into the light in its most sinister dimensions.
Fifty-two percent of the Republicans said they would support Trump if he wanted to postpone the next presidential race "until the country can make sure that only eligible American citizens can vote".
The Post's poll of 1325 Americans, taken in June, also reveals an astonishing 47 percent wrongly believe Donald Trump won the popular vote.
"Not surprisingly, beliefs about the 2016 election and voter fraud were correlated with support for postponement", The Washington Post notes.
According to the survey, half of the Republican participants falsely believe that Trump won the popular vote, with two-thirds believing that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election.

And this is to say nothing of the various legal and constitutional complications that would immediately become clear.
He has also repeatedly claimed that voter fraud was a problem and benefited Hillary Clinton - she won the popular vote by three million ballots - despite his win.
"Nevertheless, we do not believe that these findings can be dismissed out of hand", they added.
