Poll: Less than Half of America Believes Joe Biden Won the Election

Poll: Less than Half of America Believes Joe Biden Won the Election. By Hannah Bleau.

Less than half of the American people believe Joe Biden (D) won the presidential election, according to a Tuesday survey from Just the News Daily and independent pollster Scott Rasmussen.

The survey, fielded November 5-7 among 1,200 registered voters, asked respondents, “Who do you believe legitimately won the presidential election this year?”

It found that 49 percent, overall, believe Biden won the presidential election. Over one-third of voters, or 34 percent, believe Trump won the presidential election, and 16 percent are “not sure” who won.

Views are sharply divided along partisan lines. Over three-fourths of Republicans, 77 percent, believe Trump won, compared to 12 percent who said Biden and 11 percent who said they were unsure. By contrast, 87 percent of Democrats believe the former vice president won, six percent believe Trump won, and seven percent remain unsure. While a plurality of independents, 42 percent, said Biden won, nearly a quarter said Trump won, and one-third remain unsure.

This is a recipe for civil conflict. At this point, nothing less than radical transparency will suffice. It must be demonstrated to everyone, beyond reasonable doubt, what the true vote count is — at least to sufficient accuracy to know who really won.

The left are arrogantly proclaiming they won, and starting to act as the new administration. Worse, they are actively discouraging proper scrutiny of their “victory”. If they were really so confident they’d won fairly, they would welcome scrutiny — just as an honest company on the stock exchange welcomes the quarterly audits of its accounts.

Already less than half the country believes the left won. That fraction will only diminish further if the lawsuits prove reams of fraud. Then most Americans will rightly regard their government as illegitimate. Some will find this moral justification for any number of acts. We urge the left to cooperate in radical transparency, for everyone’s sake.
