33% of independents, 16% of Democrats say election was ‘rigged’

By Jake Dima

A majority of Republicans said the 2020 election was rigged and President Donald Trump was the rightful victor, according to a Wednesday poll.

A total of 73% of respondents said Democratic nominee Joe Biden won the election, but when the question was rephrased to “rightfully won,” 52% of Republicans said Trump was the winner, according to Reuters/Ipsos poll. Approximately 68% of Republicans said the election was rigged, while 16% of Democrats and 33% of independents said the same, the data revealed.

Fifty-Five percent of U.S. adults characterized the Nov. 3 election as “legitimate and accurate,” which is down from 62% in a similar poll conducted after 2016’s voting tallies, according to the data. A total of 28% of respondents said the presidential victor was declared through “illegal voting or election rigging,” which is nearly a two-fold increase from the 16% of Americans who said the same in 2016, Reuters reported.

The poll was administered in an online format to 1,346 people — 598 were Democrats and 496 were Republicans, according to the news wire. The data has a measure of accuracy of plus or minus five percentage points, Reuters reported.

  1. Was the election rigged, well let me see, Sleepy Joe Biden had turnouts at his rallies
    with about 10 – 20 people ” reporters ” in attendance, Hmmm.

    But he received more ballots in this election than either Barrack Obama or Hillary Clinton
    ever received, I don’t remember trucks showing up in the middle of the night loaded with
    ballots for them, but these midnight trucks had ballots for Joe, just happen to be at 99.%
    for Biden ……..sounds a little fishy.

    We probably wouldn’t have a problem, if all the ballots were reviewed by both parties but
    when only one party verifies them, well now we have a problem, well there’s that fishy smell
    again………..As Joe would say, Come-on Man !!

  2. This crap makes my skin crawl because what the hell percentage that 33% of independents actually represent? And 16% of Dems – what the does it matter? This is nothing more than a person trying to keep the pot stirred.
