A poll showed that 32% of Americans believe Trump’s claims of “stolen elections” and “Biden’s fraud.”
About a third of Americans believe that Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election was the result of massive voter fraud.
This is evidenced by the data of a sociological survey, published on Monday, June 21, by the University of Monmouth.
32% of respondents are convinced of electoral fraud. This figure has remained unchanged since Biden was elected president.

The poll shows how many Americans still believe ex-President Donald Trump’s assertion about “stolen elections”, The Hill notes.
“The continuing efforts to question the validity of last year’s election is deepening the partisan divide in ways that could have long-term consequences for our Democracy, even if most Americans don’t quite see it that way yet,” said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Sociological Survey Institute.
Most of those who believe that the fraud brought Biden’s victory (63%) consider themselves Republicans or are supporters of Republican views.
At the same time, 14% of those polled claim that they will never recognize Biden as the legitimate president of the United States.
The number of respondents who consider Biden’s victory illegal coincides with the number of supporters of stricter voting rules – such 33%.
