Trump says ‘Biden did not win election in any way’ as a new poll says 67% of Republican voters agree
Former President Donald Trump has claimed “ there is no way ” that Biden won the 2020 presidential election after a poll suggested the majority of GOP voters agreed.
A CBS News poll Published Sunday showed that 67 percent of self-proclaimed Republicans did not think President Joe Biden was the legitimate winner of the election.
‘Important news! New polls by CBS News on the state of the Republican Party (which is very strong!), ” Trump wrote on his own website.
“President Trump has a strong hold on the GOP.” 80% of Republicans agree with Liz Cheney’s removal from GOP leadership and only 20% disagree.
The poll also found that 67% of Republicans said they do not consider Sleepy Joe Biden the legitimate winner of the 2020 presidential election.
“I agree with them 100%, just look at the facts and the data – there’s no way he could have won the 2020 presidential election!”

Trump has made several false claims about electoral fraud during the November presidential election, losing a second term.
The claims – including thousands of dead votes – have been largely or completely disproved, and Biden’s victory was finalized by Congress on Jan. 7.
Despite this, many GOP voters continue to agree with Trump.
The CBS News investigation was conducted by YouGov between May 12 and 14.
It spoke to 951 “self-proclaimed Republicans (including Republicans and Republicans)”.
The sample was weighted to be representative of Republicans in the previous national polls, based on a variety of factors, including gender, race, and education.
Despite strong support for Trump’s claims, the poll showed that voters felt it was critical that GOP officials and candidates propose important legislation.

Seventy-three percent of respondents thought it was very important, compared with 37 percent who said it was very important for officials and candidates to support election fraud claims in 2020.
Support for voter fraud claims also lagged behind agreement on economic policies and agreement on culture and values in terms of interest to voters.
CBS News conducted the poll following Wednesday’s impeachment of Congressman Liz Cheney from her leadership position.
The Wyoming lawmaker, the daughter of ex-US Vice President Dick Cheney, has held the third position in the United States House of Representatives since 2019.
She was voted out for her criticisms of Trump, including repeatedly rejecting his baseless claims about the election.
Eighty percent of the poll respondents said they agreed with her removal, and 69 percent said they felt unaware of the party.
Representative Liz Cheney told Fox News on Sunday that the 74 million Americans who voted Donald Trump for president were “misled” and “betrayed.”
Cheney also accused House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Elise Stefanik of being complicit in Trump’s lie that he won the 2020 election
Others gave their reasons that Cheney was wrong about the 2020 election or did not support Trump.
Those who opposed the removal of the legislature – about a fifth of the party, according to the poll – said there was scope for differing views in the party.
On Sunday, Cheney claimed that the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump as president were “deceived” and “betrayed.”
She also accused House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy and Rep. Elise Stefanik, the woman who replaced her as GOP conference chair, of being complicit in Trump’s lie that he won the 2020 election.
Cheney, who voted for Trump last year, said she regretted that decision and argued that the former president poses a “ real danger ” to democracy with his false claims about electoral fraud.
Former President Trump remains a real danger. What he does and says, his allegations, his refusal to accept court decisions, his claims went on just yesterday that this election was somehow stolen, ” she said on Fox News Sunday.
She told Chris Wallace that the Republicans who supported him had been misguided.
The millions of people you mentioned who supported the president have been misguided. They have been betrayed. And especially when we see his continued action to attack our democracy, his continued refusal to accept the results of the last election, you see that continuing danger, ”Cheney said.
