More voters believe Trump was legitimately elected than Biden, poll

Just about a quarter voters believe the correct candidate was declared in each of the most recent presidential elections

By Sophie Mann. January 20, 2022 – 12:50pm

More voters (61%) believe that former President Donald Trump was legitimately elected in 2016, than believe President Biden was legitimately elected in 2020 (57%), according to a new poll from Scott Rasmussen.

The national survey also found that just 26% of voters believe the correct candidate was declared in each of those elections, conveying a stark lack of trust in the U.S. election system by the American people.

Fifty-five percent of voters believe that activists and politicians from both major parties would steal an election, if they thought they could get away with it.

About one-third of voters (33%) disagree with that sentiment. While Democrats are evenly divided on the question, more Republicans and Independents believe both sides would cheat.

The poll results arrive as states and parties enter the 2022 midterm election, and Democrats in the U.S. Senate fail to pass an election reform overhaul package that would place a significant amount of control over elections in the hands of politicians in Washington, D.C.

On the matter of election reform, 50% of those polled say the priority should be making it harder to cheat, while 38% say the priority should be making it easier to vote. On the whole, a supermajority of voters (84%) believe the goal of any election reform should be to create a system where it is “easy to vote and hard to cheat.”

      If 57% of the people are stupid enough to believe that Biden was actually elected, no wonder our country has so many problems.
