A is correct.
B), C), and E) are out because they miss "may", and D) misses "that" before "there is...".

A

Although OA is A, I don't get why "much" is used for "voters". Aren't "voters" countable? If yes, shouldn't we use "many"?

Another (A)

However much United States voters may agree that there is waste in government and that the government as a whole spends beyond its means, it is difficult to find broad support for a movement toward a minimal state.

(A) However much United States voters may agree that
------- Correct
(B) Despite the agreement among United States voters to the fact
------ Wrong: wordy; "to the fact there is waste.." is wrong
(C) Although United States voters agree
------- Wrong: it changes the meaning of the sentences from "may agree" to "agree" ("agree" denotes certainty, whereas in the original sentece the writes shows uncertainty)
(D) Even though United States voters may agree
------- Wrong: "agree THAT"
(E) There is agreement among United States voters that
------ Wrong: passive voice is not needed

May I also add that choice E takes out the possibility of 'may agree' by stuffing agreement down the throat of the voters.
