Former US President, Donald Trump has said ‘there is no way’ Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election after a new poll claimed the majority of GOP voters do not consider the president to be the legitimate winner.
A CBS News poll published on Sunday, May 16, showed that 67 percent of self-described Republicans did not think that President Joe Biden won the election legitimately.
‘Breaking News! New polling by CBS News on the state of the Republican Party (which is very strong!),’ Trump wrote on his own website as he reacted to the outcome of the poll.
”President Trump has a strong hold on the GOP.” 80% of Republicans agree with the removal of Liz Cheney from GOP Leadership and only 20% disagree.
‘The poll also showed that 67% of Republicans said that they do not consider Sleepy Joe Biden to be the legitimate winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.
‘I agree with them 100%, just look at the facts and the data—there is no way he won the 2020 Presidential Election!’
Trump has made several false claims of electoral fraud in the November presidential election in which he lost out on a second term.
The CBS News survey was conducted by YouGov between May 12 and 14. It spoke to 951 ‘self-identified Republicans (including Republicans and Republican-leaners)’.
The sample was weighted to be representative of Republicans in the previous national polls, according to several factors including gender, race, and education.
The poll showed that voters considered it most vital that GOP officials and candidates propose important legislation.
Seventy-three percent of respondents considered that very important, compared to 37 percent who said it was very important for officials and candidates to support claims of 2020 election fraud.
Support for election fraud claims also fell behind agreement on economic policy and agreement on culture and values in terms of importance to voters.
CBS News conducted the poll following the ouster of Congresswoman Liz Cheney from her leadership post.
The Republican lawmaker, who is the daughter of ex-US Vice-President Dick Cheney, had held the third-ranking post in the House of Representatives since 2019.
She was voted out for clashing with members of her party over Trump’s false claims about election fraud and his actions on the day of the Capitol riot.
