A majority of Republicans believe former President Donald Trump’s repeated false claims that the 2020 election was rigged for President Joe Biden, with a new poll from Reuters/Ipsos showing at least 53% think Trump is still the true president.

Majority of Republicans Believe Former President Donald Trump’s False Election Claims, Poll Shows

Fifty-six percent of Republicans believe Biden is in the White House due to “illegal voting or election rigging” and a combined 61% say they “strongly” or “somewhat” agree that the election was stolen from Trump. Only 30% of Republicans believed absentee or mail-in ballots were counted accurately, compared to 86% of Democrats and 55% of independents.

The repeated messages of widespread fraud or irregularities — which run counter to reality according to scores of bipartisan elected officials and experts — have helped convince Republicans to support an ongoing effort to restrict voting rights in dozens of states.

Eight-seven percent of Republicans believe the government should place limits on voting to “protect elections from fraud,” the poll showed.

Local, state, and federal election officials of both major parties — from town clerks and county boards to secretaries of state and judges appointed by Trump himself — say no widespread fraud or irregularities affected the presidential race.

Biden won 306 Electoral College votes to Trump’s 232, and Biden won the popular vote by more than 7 million votes.

Trump’s own Homeland Security experts called the election “the most secure in U.S. history,” and said they found zero evidence that polling machines were tampered with, a frequent false claim spread by Trump lawyers, Republican politicians, and followers on social media.

Trump’s own attorney general, William Barr, said the Justice Department investigated and found no evidence of widespread fraud.

Before the election, Trump refused to say whether he’d accept the results if they went in Biden’s favor. His legal team and Republican supporters had dozens of court cases tossed either because the plaintiffs lacked standing or because there was no evidence.

One Michigan judge described multiple claims of fraud as meritless, speculative, or offering “no evidence” at all.

“Former President Donald Trump’s stronghold over the Republican party remains,” wrote the pollsters, who surveyed more than 2,000 adults across the country earlier this month.

“His refusal to concede the 2020 election and calls of widespread fraud have raised doubts about the integrity of its results among his Republican base.”

Trump’s false claims led to his second impeachment, on the charge that he incited a mob of his followers to attack his own Capitol in a failed attempt to stop Congress from certifying Biden’s victory on Jan. 6.

More than 140 police officers were injured and five people died, including a Capitol Police officer. Nearly 150 Republicans still voted to overturn Biden’s Electoral College wins in multiple states.

The Senate will vote this week on whether to create a bipartisan commission to investigate the attack.

    I know there was widespread fraud the Republican Party
    Is in bed with the Democrats. The Democratic Party
    are evil and would do whatever it was they could to
    create false ballots, the information of testifying individuals
    Was proof enough of wide spread fraud. The mail in ballots that were accepted after the voting day as well as
    the number of votes Trump received that the Democrats were over whelmed with in shock and awe . They infiltrated voting machines to accept numeral votes.
    The mail carriers discarded votes for Trump littered in land-fields , behind buildings, and many other ways.
    It was the biggest joke in history Covid 19 made a mockery out of our Americas voting laws creating
    a way for Democrats to create as much time as they need
    for false votes Biden said it himself. That they created
    a way to commit voter fraud with an extensive team
    and they did it with Obama. Don’t believe for one second
    that there wasn’t widespread fraud look at the facts
    look at all the shanannagans that was going on.

    First they gave extra days to vote and send mail in ballots
    Then they shutdown because of a false claim that was not verified and yes there was a leak earlier in the week that had no claim to the date there of. These people which will be judged will one day regret it because though many believe God is sleeping or don’t exist, I tell you He does
    And He is a God of Love and vengeance. A terrible God and a faithful God the truth will come out one day.
    But by Gods mighty hand. The truth will come, and all will be as God determined it to be. Maybe God wanted the world to see , but all things add up clearly to voter fraud in the immense proportion including information being stolen from warehouses clearly they had cleaning to do.
    Just as the hidden agenda when a bank was robbed on 9-11 where billions was stolen and the twin towers were destroyed. I can not understand why these things
    Fall upon us but God sees all and there are angels amongst us everywhere greater is He in me than he that is in the world.
    The devils devices are many but the wicked will die in there trespasses the righteous have many troubles but the Lord will deliver them out of them all.

    The Lords will be done, Donald Trump will be back
    though he is hated by many because they have been blinded to not see that Gods hand is in all of this
    Gods timing is perfect and what the devil means for bad God makes for good. In Yahshua Christ Jesus mighty name amen
    Let your will be done Father in Heaven not that of my own yet yours amen Hallelujah hallelujah praise the Lord amen
