A majority of GOP members believe Trump won the 2020 election and blame his loss on fraud, according to a new poll.
The May Reuters/Ipsos poll proved that 53% of GOP members believe Donald Trump is the “true president” now, as compared to just 3% of Democrats and 25% of citizens overall.
About one-quarter of people believe the election was harmed by voting fraud, including 56% of Republicans. The numbers were roughly the same for a poll that was undertaken in November, which revealed that 28% of all people and 59% of GOP members felt this way.
The poll showed that 61% of conservatives believe the election was stolen from Donald Trump.
Also, only around 29% of Republicans think he should be blamed for the Jan. 6 protest at the U.S. Capitol. Trump critics, mostly from the Democratic Party, allege that Trump incited the protest with his rhetoric and urged the protesters to take action.
Overall, 67% of people say they trust elections in their town, including 58% of Republicans.
The polls were done online. The May poll got responses from 2,007 people. The poll has a credibility interval of around 4 percentage points.
