We must begin with the fact that polls of all kinds have the approximate credibility of palm readers. Rasmussen, however (and Gallup) disgraced itself rather less than its competitors in measuring the election trends before November. The verdict of Ethics Dunces would still hold if the percentage was 20%, 10% or 100%, however. The polling results above were published on November 20; maybe fewer people are convinced now that the election was stolen, since the various challenges filed in court have been failing. The statistics above still prompt these observations:
1. If Democrats think that their party steals elections, making it a threat to Democracy, why do those Democrats continue to identify with a party that cheats? The only explanation can be that they do not support Democracy, and believe that their will should be imposed on their fellow citizens by illegal means, They are totalitarians by philosophy and nature.
2.What kind of party attracts 30% of its supporters from the ranks of anti-Democratic cheats? (It’s a rhetorical question.) Is it rational to trust such a party, or give it power over our lives?
3. Like so many poll questions, that one is badly phrased and ambiguous. Did responders believe that that the cheating did ensure that Biden won, or that it was done to ensure he would win, though he may well have won anyway?
4. Because of the poor framing of the question, we can’t tell whether the 47% of all voters who answered in the affirmative are cognitively challenged, believing something did occur when the evidence so far is circumstantial and inconclusive, of if they are the only ones not in denial (or lying), since the evidence that Democrats tried to ensure Biden’s election by undemocratic means is overwhelming.
5. As I have stated in several earlier posts (like this one) there is no question that the election was stolen. I am less certain that the election was stolen by fraudulent votes or other manipulations of the vote total.
