Polls show majority of Republicans mistakenly
think the 2020 election wasn't legitimate

Poll of the week: A new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that 55% of Republicans falsely believe Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election was the result of illegal voting or rigging. Additionally, 60% of Republicans incorrectly agree that the election was stolen from Republican Donald Trump. These polls are the latest to indicate that Republicans mistakenly think that the 2020 election wasn't legitimate, when it clearly was. What's the point: Republicans have been pushing legislation at the state level to make voting at least somewhat more difficult than it was for the 2020 election. This has come in the wake of polls showing many Republicans doubt the election result. It is unclear

Let me correct the headline. The majority of the population of the country KNOW the results of the election wasn't legitimate. There, now the headline is correct.

Other polls show majority of democrats mistakenly think the 2020 election was legitimate. Un-Constitutional is un-Constitutional. There's no grey area.

Good journalists just report the facts without adding adjectives. The “mistakenly” and “incorrectly” is thought control. I wonder if they mistakenly believe it works?

I don't believe it is part of the job description for CNN or any other media to describe anyone's beliefs as false, or to say that there was no illegal voting or rigging. That is the job of the courts to decide, and one for which they have failed miserably. We all know that every court that has been asked to look at the election results has rejected the case as being filed too soon, filed too late, didn't have standing, or any other ridiculous excuse they could find to opt out of doing their job. What we don't know is why. Being threatened, lacking the courage to stand up for the truth, being blackmailed or extorted, or just plain agreeing ideologically with the result. Whatever the cause, justice has not been done. The election was clearly fraudulent and the left saying we can't believe our own eyes doesn't change reality.

The majority of Republicans have more than two brain cells to rub together. We saw the synchronized shutdown of supervised tallying in key areas on election night. No chain of custody of ballots meant no fair election. Period.

Polls mean nothing and are a complete waste of time and money. Who cares what the majority of a small sampling of people think? I used to think the actual votes mattered, but we now know they don't either. Only the side with the best and boldest crooks matters.

Typical lefwing pseudo-journalism. They just love adverbs: A new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds that 55% of Republicans falsely believe Joe Biden's victory in the 2020 presidential election was the result of illegal voting or rigging. FALSE: The poll may have found that 55% believe that, but it did not find that this belief was false. "Additionally, 60% of Republicans incorrectly agree that the election was stolen ..." OPINION, NOT FACT: Who says they are incorrect? Prove it. "These polls are the latest to indicate that Republicans mistakenly think" that the 2020 election wasn't legitimate... FALSE. The polls say nothing about whether they are mistaken. "... when it clearly was." FALSE. Clearly to whom? what is the basis for such an arrogant assertion?

Belongs in their Opinion section not Politics. Idiot Harry isn't even pretending to report news as a journalist. I did actually read the whole garbage piece and his "logic" is utterly broken. He has no idea how very basic logic even works or what a proper argument looks like. The entire thing is a how-to guide for straw man and other worthless rhetorical tactics used by college freshmen who aren't nearly as smart as they think they are.

The author is doing the bidding of the left. CCN is attempting to set the narrative that the foolish Republicans cannot accept the fact that the election was not stolen and that anyone questions the validity of the election are sore losers. radical Trumpsters and conspiracy nuts. They cannot allow the truth to start bubbling up to the surface for all to see because they know the proof of massive fraud is out there and their only strategy is to deny it, attack anyone who dares to question the results, and to bolster its power to continue to deceive the American people. The thing all these media outlets know is they must bury the truth and it has to stay buried.

So Harry, what is the rational thing to do assuming what you say is correct? Shame people for "mistakenly" believing the election was stolen? Don't you think it is important for the survival of the nation to demonstrate to those people that they are wrong? Do you think crushing them is the answer to achieving unity to hold the nation together? You seem to be a bit shy on your account of recent history. Let me help refresh your memory. CNN and every major news outlet was telling the American people that the 2016 election was stolen by Trump colluding with Russia, ring a bell Harry? What did we do then Harry, shame the democrats and CNN? No we had the Mueller investigation spending three years and millions of dollars to investigate, and do you remember what the results were Harry? No collusion other than between Hillary and Russians to fabricate a totally false dirty dossier, she made it all up. Is it coming back to you now Harry? Harry, at least pretend to believe what you are saying is true. A rational person would be calling for open investigations to dispel this mistaken notion. How supportive have you been, how supportive has CNN been of getting to the truth? We should never never allow a prominent influential person to drive a wedge into our country with false accusations of a stolen election. That will be the end of us if we continue down this path. Anyone proven to have done so should suffer serious consequences regardless if their name is Trump, Giuliani, Powell, or, ready Harry....Hillary Clinton. And Harry, which one of these is not like the others, who has been PROVEN to have fabricated fake fraudulent phony claims of a stolen election? Yea Harry, that would be Hillary. So lets get to the bottom of 2020 to the extent possible knowing that the FBI already shredded evidence. And let's unite in calling for the prosecution of Hillary Clinton for all of her crimes, can we count on you Harry? Of course not you are just a shrill piece of trash willingly pulling on the loose thread that once sewed the nation together. .

How many times in the first paragraph does this mindless moron write the word mistakenly? And as to Hillary Clinton's voters ACCEPTING the results? No one....NOT ONE filthy, deceitful, traitorous DEMOCRAT or the MEDIA accepted the election results of 2016. EVER. Not the CIA, State Department, FBI, you name it. Democrat state media was talking about impeaching DJT 17 minutes after his inaugural speech. The 2020 election was stolen. Just ask John James. And every election they wish to steal from now, they will unless this fraud is exposed. And I don't see that happening any time soon. Our beloved is a haven from the fake news. We don't need to be reading this crap in our sanctuary.

Count me as one of them, though now we have to move on, and Trump is being destructive, as he won't. This is why we lost the Senate seats in Georgia and why we see the terrible terrible destruction our country now faces. As to fraud, just too strange that Trump won overwhelmingly.....until all those strange "after" votes started to dribble in and changed the tally JUST enough for Biden to "win." And Trump is STILL going after those he considers HIS enemies, while we really need him to rally the Party and move forward and make sure fraud never surfaces again---Trump convincing 70,000 Georgians their votes didn't count in that Senate race is why we have no majority in the Senate. He should put Country over his own anger.

I doubt that a mistake was involved in CNN's reporting on this issue. It was a bald-faced lie, and they knew it was a lie. Either that or they refuse to know the truth when it stares them in the face. The fact that CNN and others of their ilk are still trying so hard to convince everyone that the election was on the up and up is proof positive to me that they know full well that the election was stolen and will move heaven and earth to keep anyone from looking behind the curtain.

"Republicans have been pushing legislation at the state level to make voting at least somewhat more difficult than it was for the 2020 election." NO, as usual Communist News Network got it wrong yet again. Republicans are trying to ensure elections maintain some semblance of integrity. Oh - my bad - someone give cnn a dictionary so they can look up the word integrity, a word with which I'm sure they are unfamiliar.

Formally introducing his cabinet to the public, Joe Biden proudly declared: “This is the first [time] in American history that the cabinet looks like America.” Looking at the actual appointments and not just the gender, skin color, and ethnic origins of the Biden team, it is a team that may look like America but doesn’t think like America. In fact, it is a team whose outlook is anti-American. Take Biden’s vice-presidential choice, Kamala Harris, whose antipathy for America oozes from her every pore.

Poor Walt. This man has probably turned over in his grave 100 times by now with all the antics of Disney. On Tuesday, April 13, Disney Chairman Josh D’Amaro posted a blog on the Disney Parks website titled “A Place Where Everyone is Welcome,” because apparently they weren't very welcoming before, despite having Gay Days for 30 years. Right off the bat, you should have got the hint to grab a barf bucket for the spiel about "taking action to create meaningful change." The announcement included a video and narrative to explain the new addition to the longstanding tradition of The Four Keys: Inclusion.

Texas is turning blue. We know because that’s what we’re told. Despite Donald Trump winning the state in 2020 and the 10 Democratic targeted House races all ending up in Republican hands, the state is getting bluer all the time. We know because… well, if the media tells us Republicans are sinking and Texas is where the “evidence” will appear next, naturally, the race to succeed Rep. Ron Wright, who died of COVID-19 in February, will be the “canary in the coal mine” according to Politico. If the special election in Texas is any indication for 2022, the GOP’s ongoing identity crisis will leave it with a real mixed-bag of candidates

A group of top Democratic Party pollsters are set to release a public statement Tuesday acknowledging “major errors” in their 2020 polling — errors that left party officials stunned by election results that failed to come close to expectations in November. In an unusual move, five of the party’s biggest polling firms have spent the past few months working together to explore what went wrong last year and how it can be fixed. It’s part of an effort to understand why — despite data showing Joe Biden well ahead of former President Donald Trump, and Democrats poised to increase

The alleged Israeli attack on Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility targeted an electrical substation located 40 to 50 meters underground and damaged “thousands of centrifuges,” Iranian officials revealed in recent days. Fereydoon Abbasi-Davani, former head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, told Iranian media on Monday that the attack hit an electrical substation located deep underground and managed to damage both the power distribution system and the cable leading to the centrifuges in order to cut power to them. The Iranian official stressed that such an operation takes years, saying “the design of the enemy was very beautiful.”

WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden has decided to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, 2021, 20 years to the day after al Qaeda's attacks triggered America's longest war, three sources familiar with the decision told Reuters. However, the withdrawal would be based on certain security and human rights guarantees, the sources said, speaking on condition of anonymity ahead of the formalization of the decision. The sources did not provide further details. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin are expected to brief the decision to NATO allies in Brussels on Wednesday. Biden may also publicly announce his decision, the sources said.

Federal agencies will call to temporarily suspend the use of Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccines, after six recipients of the vaccine developed a blood clotting disorder. Almost seven million Americans have received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is administered in a single dose. Six recipients, all of them women between ages 18 and 48, developed an extremely rare clotting disorder, known as cerebral venous thrombosis. The Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will temporarily halt distribution of the vaccine at federal vaccination sites while an investigation is conducted into a possible link between the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the clotting disorder,

Imagine a future defined by the past. For the purpose of When Politicians Panicked, imagine a future of laughing, cheering, joyous crowds at amusement parks, concerts, and sporting events. More specifically, imagine that it’s Major League Baseball season yet again, which means consumers of self-regarding Washington, D.C. media could reasonably expect to read splashy news coverage about media-hungry immunologist Anthony Fauci at Nationals Park. Unknown at this juncture is whether he’ll be waving to a few thousand fans, or somewhere north of 40,000 — the Park’s capacity. Whether it’s a few thousand or tens of thousands, Fauci’s attendance will be symbolic of issues beyond crowd size. In particular,

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Monday on MSNBC’s “All In” that the Democrats would try and work with Republicans but not by “sacrificing the bold, progressive change that America demands.” Schumer said, “The question that everyone’s asking is why is there such a dichotomy between the Republican voters, electorate, and the Republican Senators. For instance, 60% of Republicans think the ARP, the American Rescue Plan, the most comprehensive progressive piece of legislation we passed in decades, is a good thing. How many Republican Senators voted for it? Zero. Why? It’s because Trump still controls them. They’re still afraid of him.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she would have fought Capitol rioters should they have entered the House chamber, according to USA Today. Pelosi and other members of Congress were in the House chamber on Jan. 6 when a group of rioters entered seeking to disrupt the certification of the 2020 presidential election. Pelosi was asked by USA Today what she would have done if she wasn’t evacuated in time, to which she responded, “Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter.

The National Collegiate Athletic Association, a cartel controlling the multibillion-dollar college athletics business, may be painting itself into a corner. Probably because it is a creature of the higher education industry that has gone off the deep end in its commitment to far-left politics, the NCAA is taking an extreme position on transgenderism and apparently seeking a confrontation with the State of Florida if it passes a law currently under consideration that would limit participation in women’s sports to biological women.

A New York parent who wants to marry their adult biological child is suing to overturn laws banning incest, saying marriage is a matter of 'individual autonomy'. The parent filed the lawsuit in Manhattan federal court on April 1 asking a judge to declare incest laws 'unconstitutional' and unenforceable so that they can wed their offspring in a ceremony in New York City.(Snip) According to the suit, the parent and child regard themselves as a 'PAACNP' couple—'Parent and Adult Child Non-Procreationable' couple—and believe it would 'diminish their humanity' if they could not marry one another.

The NCAA reaffirmed its decision to refuse to hold college championships in states where laws “discriminate” against male athletes who identify as female. The board of governors issued a statement that “firmly and unequivocally” supports the inclusion of transgender athletes in college sports. The statement comes after several states have passed laws preventing biological males from competing in girls’ athletics. Apparently, the NCAA, which governs rules on competition in college sports, thinks it’s OK for biological males to compete against biological females. The only way they can allow this is if they ignore the biology in favor of being fashionable. In truth, the NCAA isn’t doing anything differently than

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is currently “engaged with NASCAR and Country Music TV,” among multiple other venues, in an effort to reach White conservatives who may be hesitant to get vaccinated against COVID-19. During a press briefing Monday, Ms. Psaki was asked to address a New York Times report that said rural states such as Mississippi, Ohio and Oklahoma are seeing a lackluster demand for the vaccine. Ms. Psaki said the White House was addressing the problem primarily at the local level but that other measures had been taken to “get directly connected to White conservative communities”

The U.S. Capitol Police officer who shot dead an Air Force veteran during the tumultuous events on Jan. 6 will not be charged, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced Wednesday. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division decided jointly not to pursue charges against the officer. The decision came after a “thorough investigation” into the shooting of Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old who joined others in storming the U.S. Capitol in Washington during a joint session of Congress in January. Babbitt was shot while trying to climb through a broken window into the Speaker’s Lobby, adjacent to the House chamber.
