A Donald Trump supporter waits for the beginning of a Trump marketing campaign rally on Nov. 4, 2019 in Lexington, Kentucky.

Come what may, GOP voters are decided to imagine the 2020 election was stolen it doesn’t matter what the details are. As a latest Monmouth University poll discovered, “Almost 3 in 4 Republicans (73%) cling to the concept Biden received by fraud,” whereas about one-third of the American public holds that perception.

These findings typically mirror the outcomes of different polls asking about 2020 fraud, however the Monmouth survey additionally requested a query that demonstrated simply how deep and cussed these GOP delusions are.

Relating to Arizona’s sham “audit” of the state’s 2020 outcomes launched in September, 57% of Individuals accepted the outcomes of the evaluation, accurately saying it had both concluded Joe Biden received Arizona pretty (36%) or saying they weren’t certain concerning the report however guessed it discovered Biden the winner (21%).

However when it got here to Republicans, 62% misstated the outcomes of the sham audit, with 32% saying the so-called audit discovered proof of fraud and 30% saying it in all probability discovered fraud, when in actual fact the report positioned no 2020 fraud.

So even when a sham course of initiated by GOP lawmakers, promoted by Donald Trump, and performed by pro-Trump sympathizers finds no fraud, a considerable majority of Republicans reject and deform the findings.
