A new Monmouth poll has revealed nearly one-third of voters believe Trump was the “real” winner of the 2020 presidential election, with only 61 percent agreeing President Joe Biden won “fair and square.”
The poll noted the number has remained relatively stable since November. Among Republicans, “When all Republican identifiers and leaners are combined, the number who believe Biden won only because of voter fraud has been fairly stable (63% now, 64% in March, 69% in January, and 66% in November).”
A brand new Monmouth poll finds that 32% of registered voters believe the lie that Joe Biden won the 2020 election because of voter fraud — including 57% of Republicans and 38% of independents.

Segmented by party, those who believe Biden won due to voter fraud include 57 percent of Republicans.
The poll also asked about the impact of audits from the 2020 election. “One in three (33%), though, say these are legitimate efforts to identify possible voting irregularities.”
The results reveal some interesting information regarding American political attitudes. First, it is clear a sharp divide remains between Republican and Democratic voters.
Second, all voters reveal a concerning level of belief in voter fraud. For a nation known for its freedoms and democracy, the growing concern with election fraud is a startling change.
The nation’s voters continue to hold strong beliefs about the 2020 election. These beliefs also fuel the actions being taken that will impact future elections.
