Rasmussen Poll: Most Democrats Still Believe Russia Stole 2016 Election From Hillary

Rasmussen Poll: Most Democrats Still Believe Russia Stole 2016 Election From Hillary

“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.

This actually explains a lot. But in order to accept it you need to 1) believe the respondents to the survey are telling the truth and 2) Believe that the average democrat is a complete absolute drooling imbecile.

Plausible but I’m skeptical.

“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth”, is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi Joseph Goebbels. It is the most potent weapon known to man and the news media are experts in its use.

These are the same people who think a man can become a woman and that kindergartners are old enough to decide to have their private bits chopped off.

Blowhards pointing fingers while defining themselves.

Self delusion is bliss to the Left….plus they never avoid stopping at the closest Rec Med to maintain their delusional nirvana.

If you live in a Democrat bubble, what else could you think?

And they haven’t yet Moved On?
Blasphemy, sacrilege, heresy!
Charge them with insurrection, and fling them into basement jails forever.
That’s how we treat DENIERS in America!

Democrats are idiots. In other news, water is wet.

To be honest, one could argue that between a quarter to a third of Americans believe that the 2020 election was stolen by a Democrat-GOPe conspiracy. And that those involved in the theft are TWANLOC. Lines are being drawn. The key point will be if the November 2022 election is either cancelled or changed in procedures so as to guarantee a Democrat win despite the state of the country and polling. Two elections stolen in a row have implications.

Of course the reason why HilLIARy lost couldn’t possibly be because she’s such an odious creature.

Nope, gotta be because of Putin’s crack spies Boris and Natasha.

Gets you tossed off for life from any social media if you say Biden stole the election

Which is exactly why it so important to take the bad actors to court, televise the trials, and put the guilty in Leavenworth – REAL jail, not club fed.

Meanwhile, raze to the ground the Federal institutions and federally funded entities that conspired to support those crimes – FBI, State Dept, NPR, DoJ, CIA, IRS, CDC, DoD, etc, Rebuild the truly necessary ones with a jaundiced eye and extremely strict controls. Write laws with teeth that severely punish individuals who abuse their positions.

While I like the idea of razing to the ground the traitorous federal institutions, I think a good start would be to relocate them from DC. Why should all these high paying federal jobs be clustered in one area? Relocate the Dept of Education to Bismarck ND, the EPA to Ottumwa IA and so on. There is a precedent for this if I recall correctly early in the Trump administration one agency relocated to the chagrin of the butt hurt minions who turned their backs on the administrator while he was explaining the move.

“Most Democrats think Hildebeast won”

No big deal, Most Democrats think Bruce Jenner is a woman,

The big point is voters across the board just don’t believe elections are being conducted honestly. And it’s the GOP squishes led by the Cocaine Turtle who are standing in the way. He is already getting conservative Republican candidates disqualified for the primaries to protect his preferred crooks. McCarthy is no better.

In 1964, communications theorist Marshall McCluhan wrote “Understanding the Media: the Extensions of Man” and the title of the first chapter was “The Media is the Message” which was immediately embraced as a dire warning. We all heard about it and many of us read it. It was a book we covered in my high school. Yet today, we all find ourselves immersed in our own echo chambers of choice and really struggle to leave them long enough to have discussions with people who disagree with us. Everyone believes they are the ones who “know” the truth and will not explore outside of their echo chambers. Not just those evil liberals, pretty much all of us. So we scurry around in our own personal mazes never finding the way out.

It’s not like we haven’t been warned. Books like “1984”, “Atlas Shrugged”, and so many others were not obscure nor little read. They were actually embraced by most of us. They were mandatory reading. Yet here we are stuck in our echo chambers scampering around in our personal mazes completely oblivious to the central problem. We just can’t seem to grasp the reality that we are brainwashed. Not just “them” but “us”.

There are no “lights at the end of the tunnel” in mazes. All efforts end in failure. So we defeat ourselves by visualizing and preoccupying ourselves with the certainty of failure rather than risking to visualize the possibility of success. It never seems to occur to us to consider that we might be trapped in our own mazes where we comfortably wallow in “doom and gloom”.

We are inundated by fear porn because we it works. It makes us scurry around in futility in our personal mazes in our echo chambers of choice. It’s where we are most comfortable. Fighting is futile. Trying is the first step to failure. How did we get that way? Go back to the first paragraph.

I thought that questioning the results of an election was an existential threat to democracy. This sounds like some insurectionst ideation to me.

Oh wait; it isn’t a threat to the concept of democracy, just “our” democracy. I guess it is just run of the mill gross hypocrisy.

“In a July 2020 interview with Joy Reid on MSNBC, Clinton said…”

“Last week, CNN reported…”

Well there’s your problem right there. Two lefty anti-Trump news channels have been repeating this lie for over five years now.
And rather than ask Hillary Clinton if she simply lost the election because she….well. she’s Hillary Clinton, they grant interviews with her where the repeats the lie as well.
