Polls show majority of Republicans mistakenly think the 2020 election wasn't legitimate

Poll of the week: A new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that 55% of Republicans falsely believe Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election was the result of illegal voting or rigging. Additionally, 60% of Republicans incorrectly agree that the election was stolen from Republican Donald Trump.

These polls are the latest to indicate that Republicans mistakenly think that the 2020 election wasn't legitimate, when it clearly was.

What's the point: Republicans have been pushing legislation at the state level to make voting at least somewhat more difficult than it was for the 2020 election. This has come in the wake of polls showing many Republicans doubt the election result. It is unclear what effect this legislation will ultimately have on future election outcomes.

What is perfectly clear, however, is that Republicans' lack of faith in our current election infrastructure is a direct result of Trump's historic efforts to undermine the legitimacy of the 2020 results.

1. Many Democrats thought the 2016 election wasn't legitimate. The republiQans did not give

that any air, despite the fact that Russia absolutely did interfere with the election. We had a lot more reason to believe it.

We should absolutely not give any air to the republiQans Big Lie.

7. Not just that - the media didn't give it any air

And glossed over the findings of each and every intelligence assessment that said Russia interfered in the election.

Much like they spent no time discussing the hacking of the US government by Russian intelligence, bounties on US soldiers in Afghanistan, and countless other atrocities against this country.

8. Yes. We had legitimate, and ultimately proven, doubts. None of it got coverage until

they had their faces ground in it.

Media propaganda? Free speech can be restricted where the government has a clear and compelling interests like we have now!

6. Hey, if that's what they believe we should strongly encourage their voters to stay home! Hey, what's

the harm in running ads to say just that? Hey, dumbshits, stay home and don't vote as your vote won't count anyway! LOL

9. Gaslighted by their President

That's a key reason why Trump may have set the US on a self-destructive path. Can't have leaders using the big lie.
