"Much" is not counting the United States voters. "Much" is referring to how much the voters want something. The meaning of "much" in this problem is the same as in the sentence "No matter how much Bob wants ice cream, he will not get any." That means that no matter how great Bob's desire for ice cream is, he will not get any.

"Many" would be correct if the sentence was something like "Many United States voters that there is waste in government, that the government as a
whole spends beyond its means, and that it is difficult to find broad support for a movement toward a minimal state." In this case the voters are counted. The sentence is trying to say that a lot of voters agree with something.

I hope that helps

Plug in option D and u will observe it becoms a run on sentence;; Connector "that" is required to connect 2 sentences "may agree" and " there is";

I agree he runs fast; Wrong
I agree that he runs fast; right as "that" make the other sentence as dependent clause;

E is a run-on sentence; this occurs when two independent clauses are connected by a comma.

A simplistic sentence might help illustrate:

There is evidence that pollution is increasing, it is a matter of concern.

This is again a run-on sentence, with the following independent clauses are connected by a comma:

i) There is evidence that pollution is increasing
ii) it is a matter of concern.

p.s. Our book EducationAisle Sentence Correction Nirvana discusses run-on sentences in significant detail. If you can PM you email-id, I can send you the corresponding section.
