As members of the Electoral College get ready to cast their ballots for president Monday, a new poll shows how President Donald Trump’s supporters are still not ready to accept that their candidate lost. More than eight in 10 Trump voters, or 82 percent to be exact, say they don’t consider President-elect Joe Biden the legitimate winner of the presidential election, according to a CBS News/YouGov poll released Sunday. And almost half of all Trump voters say the president shouldn’t concede even after the Electoral College votes for Biden.
A clear majority of voters though think the election is done and everyone should accept the results. Overall, 62 percent of voters say the election is “over and settled” and it’s time to move on. For 64 percent of voters, Republicans in Congress should “move on to other matters.” Trump voters don’t see it that way though as three out of every four of them believe Republicans in Congress need to focus on trying to keep Trump in power.
