“Fears of Russian interference in U.S. politics remain widespread, and Democratic voters overwhelmingly agree with Hillary Clinton that Russia is to blame for her defeat in 2016”
A new poll from Rasmussen Reports has found that most Democrats still believe the 2016 election was stolen from Hillary and that Trump only won because of interference from Russia.
Any time that Trump or anyone else questions the outcome of the 2020 election, Democrats and the media call them conspiracy theorists promoting “the Big Lie.”
It’s just different when Democrats do it.
Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Examiner:
Democrats still believe Clinton won in 2016
Democrats and Hillary Clinton’s fans are sticking to their guns when it comes to believing that Russian meddling cost her the 2016 election.
According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 72% of Democrats said that “Russia succeeded” in changing the outcome of the election that vaulted former President Donald Trump into the White House.
In findings that largely mirror surveys of Republican doubt of the 2020 election that Democrats mock, more than a majority of liberals told Rasmussen that they feel very strongly that Russia won 2016 for Trump.
“Fears of Russian interference in U.S. politics remain widespread, and Democratic voters overwhelmingly agree with Hillary Clinton that Russia is to blame for her defeat in 2016,” said the analysis of the poll shared with Secrets.
And Democrats largely fear Russia will try again in the fall congressional midterm elections, it added.
This has been going on for decades. For Democrats, the only legitimate elections are the ones Democrats win.
Here’s more from Rasmussen Reports:
Democrats Still Believe Russia Changed 2016 Election
Fears of Russian interference in U.S. politics remain widespread, and Democratic voters overwhelmingly agree with Hillary Clinton that Russia is to blame for her defeat in 2016.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 47% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it is likely that Russian interference changed the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, including 26% who say it’s Very Likely. Forty-six percent (46%) don’t think it’s likely Russian interference changed the 2016 election, including 32% who say it is Not At All Likely.
In a July 2020 interview with Joy Reid on MSNBC, Clinton said, “It’s very clear that Russia succeeded. They believe that they were able to influence the minds and even votes of Americans, so why would they stop?” Seventy-two percent (72%) of Democrats believe it’s likely the 2016 election outcome was changed by Russian interference, but that opinion is shared by only 30% of Republicans and 39% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
Last week, CNN reported that U.S. intelligence sources believe Russian President Vladimir Putin may be “dialing up his attempts to interfere with American elections.” Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters think it’s likely Russia will try to interfere in this year’s congressional midterm elections, including 38% who say such interference is Very Likely. Thirty-four percent (34%) don’t believe Russian interference in the midterm elections is likely, including 16% who say it is Not At All Likely.
So the narrative for the 2022 midterms is already set. If Republicans win the House and/or the Senate, it will have been because of Russian interference, not because most Americans reject Democrat policies.
Democrats and the media are going to make conspiracy theories acceptable again.DONATE
