I have not seen much about it in the mainstream media poll, but I stumbled across it the other day. A Rasmussen poll found that 47 percent of those polled believe it is likely Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-trump ballots in several states to ensure a Joe Biden victory.
The survey included 1,000 likely U.S. voters and was conducted Nov. 17-18. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.
Of note, two weeks prior to Election Day, 94 percent of those polled said they thought their vote would be correctly recorded and counted. Seventy-three percent said it was very likely.
After the election, those numbers fell to 71 percent (from 94 percent) and 47 percent (73 percent).
That is a huge drop in confidence.
Another interesting tally, 30 percent of Democrats believe the election was either very likely or somewhat likely stolen from Trump.
That is one-third of Democrats.
That is astounding.
And if you’re wondering how that many people — 47 percent of Americans can believe the election was stolen, here are a few key findings from Liberty Counsel:
*No sitting president in nearly 150 years has gained more votes in re-election yet lost the election.
*Biden received a record low share of the primary vote.
*Immediately after (Biden’s horrible primary performance) he received a record-high number of general election votes, despite Democrats’ general failures in local House and state legislatures to win swing seats.
*Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton in every major metro area around the country — except for Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia, according to Richard Baris of Big Data Poll and Washington Post. Biden received so many mail-in votes in those four cities that he was able to overturn state totals when it appeared President Trump was headed toward a comfortable margin of victory.
There is plenty of public discussion in Pennsylvania about the state legislature stepping in and appointing that state’s member of the Electoral College. There’s also a hearing scheduled with Arizona lawmakers for Monday. President Trump has met with legislative leaders from Michigan.
It will be interesting to see what, if anything, happens.
