According to The Hill, in some areas of the United States, they continue to seek a recount of votes.
Two-thirds of Republican Party supporters (66%) do not consider Joe Biden to be legally elected president of the United States. This is evidenced by the results of a public opinion poll published by The Hill newspaper, conducted by the Quinnipiac University Poll.
According to this analysis, and almost six months after the US Congress approved the results of the presidential election held in November last year in the country, many Republican supporters still believe that the voting results were falsified, and the victory was “stolen” from former President Donald Trump. In some areas of the United States, the publication pointed out, Republicans continue to seek a recount of the votes of voters, calling into question the legitimacy of the elections. Overall, 64% of Americans surveyed called Biden the legally elected leader of the country.
A similar poll conducted earlier by Reuters and the polling service Ipsos showed that 53% of Republican supporters perceive Trump as such.
The former president has not yet presented his political plans for the future, but 66% of respondents who support Republicans said that they would like to see him as a candidate for the post of head of state in the 2024 elections. Even more of them – 85% – are ready to support candidates who share Trump’s position at various levels of the election.
“This data completely refutes any suggestion that Donald Trump’s political future is in a state of withering,” Tim Malloy, a research analyst at Quinnipiac University, told the newspaper. “By a large majority, Republicans believe that the election was stolen from him, that Trump will be re-elected, and that if they don’t have the opportunity to vote for him, they will prefer someone who agrees with him.” The survey was conducted from May 18 to May 24. It was attended by 1,316 American voters.
