AP-NORC poll: Most Republicans doubt Biden’s legitimacy
WASHINGTON (AP) — About two-thirds of Republicans say Joe Biden was not legitimately elected president. That’s according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research conducted barely two weeks after Biden was inaugurated. Former President Donald Trump disputed the outcome of the election for months, arguing without evidence that it was stolen and that there was fraudulent voting in pivotal states. Courts dismissed those allegations. State and local election officials verified that voting was fair and secure. But the poll finds just 33% of Republicans saying Biden was legitimately elected to the White House, while 65% say he was not. Overall, roughly two-thirds of Americans say Biden was legitimately elected.
