But the strategy of demonizing skeptics while moving heaven and earth to keep anyone from looking at the evidence doesn’t seem to be winning over everyone. A new Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 35% of registered voters think the Trump/Biden election results should be overturned. That includes 58% of Republicans and 14% of Democrats.
Still, I suspect there’s an aspect of this that has nothing to do with whether people believe the 2020 vote was rigged. I believe a lot of people just think that, honest or not, electing Biden was a big mistake and we need a do-over, stat. That’s supported by a Rasmussen survey from August that found that if the election were held today, Trump would win.
It also found that 9% of Democrats regretted their vote for Biden, and things haven’t exactly been looking up since August. The story about the new Politico poll states that “only” 14% of Democrat voters want to overturn the 2020 election, but what does it say about how well Biden is doing his job that 14% of his voters want to overturn an election that their candidate won?
