More than 8 in 10 Trump voters think Biden’s win is not legitimate - The Washington Post

my notes ( ? )

Trump's delegitimisation disinformation campaign bears fruit: while 60% of those polled by Economist/YouGov thought Biden legitimately won:

  • 86% of Trump voters said he hadn’t, with 80% saying he shouldn’t concede, and most thinking the courts will overturn the results
  • over 75% think there was sufficient fraud to influence the outcome - although under half think that was true in their own states: "a good example of the classic political habit of assuming that everything is worse elsewhere".
  • almost 75% "say we’ll probably never know the real outcome" - a huge hit to the credibility of the US electoral process
