A) However much United States voters may agree that
E) There is agreement among United States voters that
The 2nd THAT (BOLDED) indicates that we require THAT at the end of first clause - therefore drop B/C/D.

E - there is NO contrast word available as has been the original meaning; secondly THERE IS...MEANS, IT IS DIFFICULT..(here we connect two independent clauses with A COMMA, making the sentence a fragment)

IMO A
