That’s quite a mandate.
Reuters isn’t currently providing access to its poll so the numbers are woefully incomplete, but they tell an unhappy story for the media narrative.
Fifty-two percent of Republicans said that Trump “rightfully won,” while only 29% said that Biden had rightfully won.
Asked why, Republicans were much more concerned than others that state vote counters had tipped the result toward Biden: 68% of Republicans said they were concerned that the election was “rigged,” while only 16% of Democrats and one-third of independents were similarly worried.
But when you look at the number of people who are confident that the election was legitimate, the numbers get much worse.
The poll showed that more Americans appear to be more suspicious about the U.S. election process than they were four years ago.
Altogether, 55% of adults in the United States said they believed the Nov. 3 presidential election was “legitimate and accurate,” which is down 7 points from a similar poll that ran shortly after the 2016 election. The 28% who said they thought the election was “the result of illegal voting or election rigging” is up 12 points from four years ago.
Obviously the media’s solution of using Big Tech and their own megaphone to suppress concerns about election fraud isn’t working so well.
Naturally, the media and the Democrats, but I repeat myself, are going to double down on pushing their narrative and silencing their critics anyway. Because if there’s one thing that restores the confidence of the people in a free and fair process it’s totalitarian thuggery.
