Nearly half the participants in a new poll say they believe the 2020 presidential election was “likely” stolen by Democrats from President Trump.
Between November 17-18, Rasmussen asked likely voters: “How likely is it that Democrats stole votes or destroyed pro-Trump ballots in several states to ensure Biden would win?”
Half of the participants said it was “Not at all likely” (41 percent) or “Not very likely” (9 percent).
The other half thinks it was entirely possible, likely, or very likely that nefarious actions were taken to steal away the election.
Eleven percent of participants said it was “somewhat likely” that Democrats stole votes or otherwise cheated to win the election while a whopping 36 percent said it was “very likely” this occurred.
As Breitbart News reports, the poll further broke down the results by party affiliation, showing an enormous 75 percent of Republicans think the election was unfairly decided.
While 61 percent of Democrats were confident the election was legitimate, a still concerning 30 percent said it was “somewhat likely” (10 percent) or “very likely” (20 percent) said the election was not.
On the issue of whether Trump should concede, 61 percent say he should, while 33 percent say no.
Eighty-four percent of Democrats, 37 percent of Republicans, and 59 percent of unaffiliated voters say Trump should concede. But 57 percent of Republicans disagree, which mean they want him to keep up the fight.

When asked the all-important question of whether “your friends and neighbors think Trump should concede,” only 51 percent say yes, while 30 percent say no — 18 percent are unsure.
The reason the “friends and neighbors” question is important is because America’s top pollsters believe that question is a more accurate reflection of the true intent of the person being surveyed.
