Rasmussen Survey: Only 56% Of Americans Say Biden Is Their President

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, is regarded as president by just 56% of Americans, according to a survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports — despite media proclamation that he won the 2020 election, and the outcome of the recent Electoral College vote.

The pollster said based on its survey conducted between December 15-16 through national telephone and online surveys, 34% of respondents also said “he is not” the president, while 10% said they were not sure whether Biden is their president.

“Many anti-Trumpers insisted throughout President Trump’s four years in office that he was not their president, and a surprisingly high number of voters feel the same way about President-elect Biden,”Rasmussen saidin its report.

It noted that slightly fewer voters or 52% said their family and friends consider Biden their president when asked: “Do your family and friends consider Biden their president?” — with the number dropping to just 52% with 32% saying they do not, and another 16% undecided on how their family and friends perceive Biden.

Independent Voters Split 

“Eighty-four percent (84%) of Democrats recognize fellow Democrat Biden as their president, but only 28% of Republicans and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party agree,” the pollster said.

“Sixty-one percent (61%) of Republicans and 34% of unaffiliateds say Biden is not their president.”

Commenting on the poll result, Breitbart News’ John Nolte said based on his guess “the moment people decided Biden would not be their president is when they witnessed, in real time, all the vote counting stop in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Detroit, and Milwaukee” —  referring to several key states halting the canvassing of votes on the night of Election Day citing various reasons like water pipe leak, or being overworked leading to the Election Day and needing some rest.

Citing multiple reports of election irregularities, Nolte lamented how “no one wants to look into what happened.”

“I don’t know what happened. I don’t know if there was enough fraud to overturn the results. But I’ll tell you one thing: the fact that the establishment freaks out any time someone wants to look into vote fraud or wants to tighten the rules to avoid fraud makes me more suspicious than anything else,” he said.

Rasmussen Reports said the survey of 1,000 likely US voters has a margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

A separate report conducted by the pollster also found almost half (47%) of American voters believing that there was enough fraud to ensure Biden would win in the recent elections, including 75% of Republicans & 30% of Democrats.

Similarly, Rasmussen found that 36% of Americans still think a Trump win is likely through court challenges.

83% of Republicans said Biden didn’t win

More than a month since the mainstream media projected Biden to win the White House race, 83% of Republicans polled by Gallup in the days afterward said they didn’t believe the reports of Biden’s victory.

In the poll, conducted from November 9 to 15, almost all Democrats (99%), 64% of independents, and 17% of Republicans said reports that Biden won is “accurate.”

Further from the November 3 election and with increasing reports of election irregularities, almost no Trump voters consider Biden the legitimate 2020 election winner.

A separate CNBC/Change Research poll found that only 3% of voters for President Trump think Biden won the presidential election last November 3 —  while an overwhelming 73% of Trump supporters also believe that the incumbent Republican chief executive was re-elected.

On December 16, President Trump tweeted that 92% of Republicans voters think the election was rigged.
