Two-thirds of Republicans still say that the 2020 election was rigged, new poll suggests

Recent polls suggest the majority of Republican voters maintain doubt in the 2020 Presidential Election.

YouGov/YahooNews surveyed 1,552 US adults at the end of July, and found that 66 percent of Republicans believe “the election was rigged and stolen from Trump.” Similar results were found in a poll from May. According to a report from a Quinnipiac University poll, “Six months after the 2020 presidential election, two-thirds of Republicans (66 – 25 percent) say they think that Joe Biden’s victory was not legitimate.

Overall, Americans say 64 – 29 percent that Biden’s victory was legitimate.” The hesitancy in Republican voters is potentially fueled by ongoing audits and consistent doubt in election integrity by former President Trump.

“The numbers fly in the face of any predictions that Donald Trump’s political future is in decline. By a substantial majority, Republicans: (1) believe the election was stolen from him, (2) want Trump to run again, and (3), if they can’t vote for Trump, prefer someone who agrees with him,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy. The former president continues to be politically active, from hosting rallies to endorsing candidates
