There are some nuggets here that are worthy of attention.
Notably,
Many Democrats think the election was stolen from Trump.
56% of Biden voters said they voted against Trump, not for Biden.

The Democrat, by pushing to make the election a referendum on Trump, have placed themselves in a precarious position. Bidens grip on the Presidency is suspect even if he's sworn in due to the fact that a large percentage of voters believe the election was stolen and 44% of Democrats votes were against Trump. The votes against Trump are probably more due to the fact that many will not admit that they voted for someone they didn't think was qualified.

I'm sorry, but this OP is a load of something that most people flush.

Democrats think the election was stolen? Wow, that's weird!

Concerning the anti-Trump vote, that doesn't surprise me. A lot of conservatives voted against Hillary in 2016. During the campaigns that year, Sean Hannity even nicknamed his radio show "The Stop Hillary Express. " He did NOT name it "The Vote for Trump Express."
To be fair, Hannity came up with the "Stop Hillary Express, well before Trump announced a run.

It’s possible that the OP is getting his numbers from this.

If you subtract 61 from 100 you have 39% that think it was stolen. Roughly a third. But without being a member connected to the report the exact demographics aren’t available.
I'm guessing they also had "somewhat likely", "somewhat unlikely", and "not sure" options as well. Whatever options were available, I wish they revealed all the data instead of the parts they thought were important.

That's basically what I was talking about. There could be 3-6 (or more) other answers, degrees to which a person does or doesn't view the likeliness of cheating by the Democrats, and we have no idea how that breakdown goes. From what I've seen in the past with these sort of questions, the next step could say something like "Not likely" rather than "Not likely at all", meaning that 30+% could be in that step rather than one much further down at believing it likely they cheated, as the OP suggests.

Eighty-four percent (84%) of Democrats, 37% of Republicans and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party believe Trump should concede.

Even when OP references a legit article, he makes stuff up rather than quoting the article.

Considering that polling is obviously utter garbage right now, I don't know why anyone would want to draw those kinds of conclusions from any single poll.

Nice clickbait title, there.

Your title is a moronic lie.

All you've done is pollute this forum with painfully stupid lies and propaganda.

I’m missing the point you’re trying to make and that is, indeed, completely unacceptable. Sorry.

"Democrats (61%) say it’s Not At All Likely" that Democrats stole the election. That implies the remaining 39% say they DID steal it. However, the point is there are three other possible answers, none of which are absolutely affirmative.

That (knowing the options and responses) would make it easier to evaluate. To me it only shows how a poll can be used to validate a position and why I pay little attention to them. Yet they can easily influence many people in the choices they make.

That’s the implication that can be drawn. But of course it would be an implication lacking support.

We just had yet another free and democratic election. The people have spoken, and it's up to the leaders, who serve at the pleasure of the people, to listen.
Instead, Donald Trump, not the Republican party, not "conservatives," no, Donald Trump is doing his very best to undermine confidence in that free democratic election, just as he did his best to make it as difficult as possible to vote in that election.
It is Donald Trump, not Republicans, not conservatives, no, Donald Trump who is undermining our democracy, who wants to hang on to power regardless of the will of the people. That one man is a danger to our democratic traditions and must be removed from power ASAP.
In another 50 years I'll be gone, and so will Donald Trump, but people will still be talking about how the election was stolen. Democracy will still be compromised.
Vladimir Putin will be gone, too, but the Russians will still chuckle about how democracy lost back in 2020.
Yes Trump is the primary culprit. But no. most Republicans' are absolutely guilty by association due to their silence. And no, 50 years from now nobody will be claiming a rigged election. In fact 6 months from now. the proof will be overwhelming that this election was the most up and up in our history.

The Trump bullshit will come to pass quickly.

The evidence is already overwhelming. People aren't swayed by overwhelming facts when they've already made up their minds.

That does not explain where 76% (more than 3/4) came from. How in the world did a poster make up that one?

Wrapping yurself in the flag by using "democracy" and America is dead wrong when you are supporting the defeat of both by supporting a Socialist move to the left in the country.
There is no reason to call Joe Biden a socialist. You know he is a Democrat.

No article on the Rasmussen website is legit anyway.

My vote was more against trump than it was for biden. All the words in the world mean nothing at this point. The endless screams of stolen mean nothing. Trump will be moving out in january and biden will be moving into the white house.

I don't think any serious D questions Biden's qualifications. But Rs put up the worst candidate in my lifetime -- of course people were voting against Trump.
