President Donald Trump is sure that the 2020 election was stolen from him and it seems nearly half of America’s likely voters feel the same.
As Trump has not conceded to his Democrat opponent Joe Biden, and his legal team continues to press ahead with challenges to results in several states, a new Rasmussen poll revealed that not only do many Republicans believe the election was stolen, so do a large number of Democrats.
The poll, conducted November 17-18, indicated that 47 percent of likely voters agree with the president that the process was “rigged” against him. The numbers should concern Biden if he is eventually certified as the winner of the race, as 75 percent of Republicans surveyed believe it is very likely that a second term was stolen from Trump.
But an eyebrow-raising number of Democrats are also agreeing with the president’s assessment according to the poll which showed that nearly a third of them also believe the election was stolen from him.
Huge: “How likely is it that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win?”

“How likely is it that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win,” the Rasmussen poll question asked in the national survey of 1,000 U.S. likely voters.”
“Sixty-one percent (61%) of Republicans say it’s Very Likely the Democrats stole the election,” Rasmussen reported.
John Nolte noted:
The partisan breakdown is not exactly what I expected with 75 percent of Republicans — 75 percent! — saying it is very (61 percent) or somewhat (14 percent) likely the election was stolen.
Get this… 30 percent of Democrats — Democrats! — say it is very (20 percent) or somewhat (10 percent) likely the election was stolen from Trump.
Of course 69 percent of Democrats say it is not at all (61 percent) or not very (8 percent) likely the election was stolen from Trump. Still, that 30 percent of Democrats who say it was stolen is pretty remarkable.
Even 29% of unaffiliated voters polled felt the same about the election being stolen.
In addition, 80% of voters “who do not believe Trump should concede yet think it’s Very Likely Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure that Biden would win,” the report said.
A new Reuters-Ipsos opinion poll released this week showed that about half of the Republicans surveyed believed Trump “rightfully won” the election, as 68 percent indicated they were concerned about a “rigged” vote.
Trump retweeted a report on the poll results which was, not surprisingly, flagged by Twitter as being a claim that is “disputed.” Rasmussen fired back at the social media platform.
This claim about election fraud is not disputed – it’s a poll – representing what U.S. Likely Voters TOLD US. https://t.co/P81F5uYK2p

Meanwhile, Hispanic voters who turned out in force to help Trump secure the state of Florida, are very concerned about the possibility of anyone trying to rob the president in the election.
“I feel like I am living what happened in my country 40 years ago,” Margarita De Castro, a 79-year-old Cuban refugee living in South Florida, told USA Today. “People used to say Communism can’t happen in Cuba, and look how that turned out.”
Twitter users reacted to the Rasmussen poll numbers and the fact that, despite the media’s attempts to silence the outrage, many Americans are still behind the president and think something was not right with the 2020 election process.
Finally, everyone is coming to the realization that something in rotten in Denmark….

So if the polls are finding half the American population thinks the election was fraudulent, why is the Media and others so determined to change the story and suppress discussion of an investigation?

It’s amazing how smart Americans are even ~ in spite of the massive propaganda machine the MSM has turned out to be for the left. Still Americans know they are being played.

Half the country doesn’t trust the election results.
Good job Dems

Not that any of us should have much faith in polls anymore but this poll was conducted before Trump’s lawyers held their press conference. I’m sure the number of people who believe there was election fraud is much higher now.#Elections2020

Heeeey…finally something America can agree on! It’s hard to get 30% of Democrats to agree with Republicans on ANYthing.
