'Partisan divide' continues.

The 2020 Presidential Election is not settled history for the majority of Florida Republicans according to a fresh poll from the University of North Florida.

The survey shows a full 77% of registered Republicans surveyed believe that former President Donald Trump actually won the November election.

Democrats see it differently, meanwhile, with a full 95% believing that President Joe Biden‘s victory was legitimate.

One key difference between the two parties and their respective perceptions of what really happened in November 2020 is that Democrats are more likely to completely believe their candidate won than Republicans.

“While we see a partisan divide in perceptions of the 2020 election, Democrats seem to be much more certain, with 91% saying Biden definitely won, but only 38% of Republicans say Trump definitely won, the remaining 39% saying he probably won,” asserted Dr. Michael Binder, the polling director of the University of North Florida’s Public Opinion Research Laboratory.

While Republicans may waver to some degree in their certainty that the 2020 Presidential Election was legit, they present more of a united front against one of the former President’s greatest aggravators: “Fake news.”

A full 93% of Republican registered voters surveyed equated the “mainstream media” with “fake news,” while 84% of Democrats surveyed believe that the mainstream media is in fact legit.

No Party Affiliation voters, meanwhile, had a different take on both questions. Though 65% of them believe Biden “definitely won” or “probably won” the 2020 Presidential Election, they don’t believe in the mainstream media in the way Democrats profess to. A full 61% agree with Republicans’ belief that the corporate press is counterfeit.

All told, 61% of the 1,624 registered voters polled believe Biden “definitely won” or “probably won” the election. However, 65% of that same pool believes “fake news” predominates, suggesting that Trumpian arguments against the mainstream media have taken hold outside the GOP.

    Trump supporters are delusional. If you believe such nonsense.. you are the victim of a con man. These people have been abused. They need medication and treatment. The violent ones have de-evolved back into apes. Need jail..

    As an independent, I believe Biden won the 2020 election. I also believe that while the main media (national & local) have been affected by the financial implication of extreme competition of so called new media sources and social media in general, main media still reliable and trustworthy

    I definitely believe he won. How does a lying politician (proved lied so many times ) Biden win & get more votes than Obama? That is not possible. Why at before midnight on election night Trump is ahead in most of those 5 states. Then miraculously way later Biden won. What happened to those affidavits that proved that there was fraud. Votes for Biden that came in suitcases?

      How did Biden get more votes than Obama? Because Trump was just bad and you people were the victim of a bandwagon con job and couldn’t see he was a criminal charlatan. The ballots in suitcases was right wing bullshit…false information. You’ve been duped, deluded, and abused. Seek talk therapy.

      I can’t believe I have to explain this, but here we go. The voting procedures and processes in many of the disputed states are delineated (hang with me) by state law; which is established by the legislature. These (mostly Republican) legislative bodies passed laws which established that mail-in ballots could not even begin to be counted until the vote-in-person polls had closed. Think about how convenient it is to do a mail in ballot. A huge number of people opted for that. Yet the Trumpers chose to act as though once the vote-in-person polls closed it was all over. Sorry, but far from true. Once the polls closed (with Trump in the lead) I guess you all went to bed content with the outcome; however, that massive cache (again, sorry) of mail-in votes began to be counted. It was known beforehand that most of those votes were going to be for Biden. Trump had been trying to delegitimize them all along and had been telegraphing that message for a year – “The only way I’m going to lose is if the election is stolen”. Heck the R’s have done everything within their power to create obstacles for people of color and other disenfranchised to vote. I’m curious as to what would qualify as proof that the election was legitimate, as what your people have proffered (so sorry) has come up short on every account and in every court.

    Unbelievable that people still think that trump won. I understand that Martians voted for Biden, but that is on trump.
    Trump ‘s SpaceForce should have stop the Martians from voting.

    Attention all you marxists & haters!
    Never let the facts get in the way of your warped agenda!

    Did any of you creeps see the documentary “2000 Mules”.
    Absolute concrete proof the election was stolen from Trump!
    Plus have any of you corrupt, dishonest leftists taken the time to watch the documentary “Rigged” on the Mark Zuckerberg 417 million dollar investmen to take ove the elections,in WI, PA, GA, MI, AZ & NV?

    Has anyone taken the time to read Mollie Heningway’s brilliant book “Rigged”?

    How about Phil Kline’s outstanding research on the subject with the Amistad Project?

    After doing all the above due dillengence, there is only 1 logical & fair minded conclusion. Trump won ALL 6 OF THE DISPUTED STATES & THE CORRUPT DEMS PULLED THE BIGGEST CRIMINAL ACT IN HISTORY BECAUSE OF THE SEVERAL MILLION PHONY COVID INDUCED MAIL IN BALLOTS. ALL OF THEM WERE COUNTED UP AT THE EXACT SAME TIMEIN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, WHEN THEY STOPPED THE COUNTING IN GA, PA, MI, WI, AZ, & NV SO THEY COUKLD FIGURE OUT HOW MANY VOTES THEY NEED TO STEAL IT.

    OUT COUNTRY IS A BANANA REPUBLIC, LIKE SO MANY IN CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA & AFRICA. WE ARE ABOUT FINISHED WITHOUT HONEST ELECTIONS!

    marxists can not win in the war of ideas anywhere in the world, but they have perfected their hero Josef Stalin’s cogent assessment.

    “It doenst matter who votes, it matters who counts the votes”!

      Let me repeat what Trump’s AG Attorney General stated about the film 2000 Mules….”the movie is complete hogwash….every theoretical facet of the film has a common sense explanation.”

      Your hypothesis is false. The movie and your QAnon “facts” are a joke.

    Funny how it turns out that Trump has been correct 100% of the time. Democrats are just agenda driven convenient hypocrites, nothing more, probably a whole lot less. Democrats arguments regarding the 2020 election have been debunked, as seen in recent news.
