And this is why there is such a divide in our country. A recent UMASS poll shows that almost three out of four Republicans to this day, believe that Biden did not legitimately win the presidential election in 2020. And really with all of the shady things that surrounded the 2020 election, it is more than understandable.
“Nearly 3 in 4 Republicans doubt that President Joe Biden won the 2020 election legitimately, according to a new poll from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.”
A total of 71% of GOP respondents said Biden’s victory was illegitimate, the UMass poll found.
Among those Republican respondents, 25% said Biden’s triumph was “probably not legitimate,” and 46% said it was “definitely not legitimate,” according to the poll.
“Given the continued questioning of Biden’s victory by prominent Republican elected officials, conservative media personalities and former President Trump, it is no surprise that 7 in 10 Republicans, conservatives and Trump voters view the results of the 2020 election with skepticism, if not outright disbelief,” says Tatishe Nteta, associate professor of political science at UMass Amherst and director of the poll.”
“However, overall American opinion on the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election has remained steady since April, as close to 6 in 10 Americans view Biden’s victory as legitimate.”
“Looking ahead to the 2022 midterm elections, 55% of Republicans say that a candidate questioning the legitimacy of Biden’s victory would be more likely to receive their vote. Such claims would entice only 23% of independents, however, while 38% of independents said it would make the candidate less likely to garner their support. More than a third of Republicans (36%) said that a candidate refusing to say that Biden was legitimately elected president would make them more likely to vote for the candidate, while half (49%) of independents say it would make the candidate less likely to receive their vote.”
There were accounts of dead people voting, rigged voting machines, voting anomalies overnight, and even cases where illegals voted. So it’s actually far more concerning that it’s only Republicans that are concerned about the election results. I get that the Democrats are happy about the result, but every American should want fair elections for our country.
