New Reuters Poll Shows That 70% Of Republicans Think The Election Is Rigged

Recommended Posts

This morning, Julian Assange offered a chilling and succinct assessment of the 2016 U.S. election, namely, that there is, in fact, no election but rather just an illusion of democracy that has been usurped by a corrupt political ruling class.


There is no US election. There is power consolidation. Rigged primary, rigged media and rigged 'pied piper' candidate drive consolidation.


— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks)




Certainly, new polling data from Reuters/Ipsos would seem to support that thesis. A new poll of 1,192 Americans, conducted by Reuters, found that if Hillary wins only 50% of republicans would accept her presidency as legitimate while 70% would attribute her victory to voter fraud and/or vote rigging of some type. Moreover, only 20% of republicans surveyed felt that the final vote tallies would be accurate.


Only half of Republicans would accept Clinton, the Democratic nominee, as their president. And if she wins, nearly
70 percent said it would be because of illegal voting or vote rigging, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.




seven out of 10 Democrats said they would accept a Trump victory and less than 50 percent would attribute it to illegal voting or vote rigging
, the poll showed.




For example, nearly eight out of 10 Republicans are concerned about the accuracy of the final vote count. And though generally they believe they will be able to cast their ballot, only six out of 10 are confident their vote will be counted accurately.


Obviously, this data is fairly alarming, to say the least, but not terribly surprising in light of the staggering, systemic corruption recently exposed through WikiLeaks and the ongoing Congressional review of the FBI's investigation into Hillary's private email server...not mention DNC operatives openly talking about committing massive election fraud on undercover Project Veritas videos and working behind the scenes to incite violence at Republican rallies. For those of you who still haven't seen the videos, they're worth a look.


The following video takes a look behind the scenes of the DNC's efforts to incite violence at Trump rallies:





And this one provides an excellent tutorial on how to commit voter fraud on a massive scale:





Given the exposure of mass corruption it should hardly be surprising that the "level of concern and mistrust in the system, especially among Republicans, is unprecedented," as a professor at the University of New Mexico told Reuters, but apparently it is.


"Republicans are just more worried about everything than Democrats," said Lonna Atkeson, a professor at the University of New Mexico and head of the Center for the Study of Voting, Elections, and Democracy.




Atkeson said the
level of concern and mistrust in the system, especially among Republicans, is unprecedented.




“I’ve never seen an election like this. Not in my lifetime. Certainly not in modern history.”
The difference, she said, is Trump. “It has to be the candidate effect.”




She worries that the lack of trust is dangerous. It is one thing to not trust government, but quite another to doubt the election process. “Then the entire premise of democracy comes into question,” she said.


What we find far more shocking is that somehow the American electorate's acceptance of mass corruption is split along party lines rather than being universally unacceptable.
