Less Than Half of Americans Feel Biden Won and 2020 Election Was Free and Fair

Apparently, most of America thinks that the 2020 election was a botched affair and Joe Biden didn’t legitimately win the White House.

A new poll finds that overall, less than half of respondents think the election was free and fair and that Biden really won.

The poll found a whopping one third of registered voters think Donald Trump really won the election, but it is being stolen from him.

“Less than half of all respondents — 49% — believe Joe Biden legitimately won the race, while 34% said they believe Trump won the election, and 16% said they are not sure who really won,” Just The News wrote of the recent Rasmussen poll.

Of Republican respondents, 77% said they think Trump is the legitimate winner, while just 12% of Republicans believe Biden is the legitimate winner. About a quarter of independent voters also said they believe Trump won.

Among Democrats, 87% think that Biden is the winner.

A separate poll conducted by Morning Consult and Politico also found that a large number of Americans do not have faith in this election.

Politico reported:

Multiple new organizations announced Biden as the election winner on Saturday after four days of counting in several swing states. Following the news, 70 percent of Republicans now say they don’t believe the 2020 election was free and fair, a stark rise from the 35 percent of GOP voters who held similar beliefs before the election. Meanwhile, trust in the election system grew for Democrats, many who took to the streets to celebrate Biden’s victory on Saturday. Ninety percent of Democrats now say the election was free and fair, up from 52 percent before Nov. 3 who thought it would be.

Among Republicans who believed that the election wasn’t free and fair, 78 percent believed that mail-in voting led to widespread voter fraud and 72 percent believed that ballots were tampered with — both claims that have made a constant appearance on the president’s Twitter thread. Like President Donald Trump, a majority of the people that thought the election was unfair, 84 percent, said it benefited Biden.

The lack of trust in the election system has led to Republicans being more skeptical about the election results. Although only 18 percent of Republicans had said the results would be unreliable prior to Election Day, now 64 percent feel the same way following Biden’s victory. By contrast, 86 percent of Democrats say they trust the results.

Politico noted that 70 percent of Republicans don’t think the election was free and fair.

These are devastating results for trust in our electoral system.
