A new CBS News poll finds 62% of Americans believe that the election is “over and settled” and that it is “time to move on” to other issues. That majority stands in stark contrast to the 82% of Trump supporters polled who do not see President-elect Joe Biden as the legitimate victor.
A new Quinnipiac poll finds 60% of voters say they think President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 presidential election is legitimate and 34% think his win is not. “There are large partisan gaps. Democrats say 98% to 2 % they think Biden’s election victory is legitimate and independents say 62 % to 30% his victory is legitimate. Republicans, however, say 70% to 23% that they think Biden’s victory is not legitimate.”
