A majority of White women without college degrees falsely believe that President Joe Biden did not legitimately defeat then-President Donald Trump in 2020.
Respondents to a new The Economist/YouGov Poll poll released this week were asked “Would you say that Joe Biden legitimately won the election, or not?”
President Biden defeated Trump in an electoral landslide that has been reaffirmedover and over by state officials from his own party. But despite that fact, the poll showed sharp partisan divides on the question.
While 95 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of independents said “yes” Biden did legitimately defeat Trump, only 23 percent of Republicans recognized this verifiable fact. Seventy-seven percent said “no,” President Biden did not legitimately beat Trump.
