New Poll Shows Millions Of Trump Voters Still Want Him To Retake Office By Force, Before Election

Donald Trump and his top allies continue to promote the narrative that he won in 2020 and had the office of POTUS ‘stolen’ from him, despite no evidence being produced by any of the endless audits, recounts, and other efforts from the far right. Now a new poll shows that election disinformation is working — millions of his supporters still believe that he should retake office before the next election, even if doing so requires the use of physical force.

CLEVELAND, OH – JULY 21: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump gives two thumbs up to the crowd during the evening session on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention on July 21, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received the number of votes needed to secure the party’s nomination. An estimated 50,000 people are expected in Cleveland, including hundreds of protesters and members of the media. The four-day Republican National Convention kicked off on July 18.

CBS News‘ latest round of polling finds that Trump still has a lot of support, and that disinformation still appears to be on his side. For instance, 40% of Republicans surveyed still believe that the attack on the Capitol Building last January was carried out by left-wing groups rather than Trump supporters, and 17% of Americans surveyed actually support the attack.

That’s not all they believe. Twelve percent of the country is still advocating for Trump to retake the office before the next election, and a third of those say that it would be acceptable to use force to do so.

If this is representative of the 158 million Americans who cast a ballot in 2020, that works out to over 6 million voters who would support a physical coup to return Trump to office — and obviously that number goes up if those who didn’t cast a vote in 2020 are included.

Politico reported back in November on what polls showed regarding Trump’s support. Essentially, the numbers show that he still has a hefty voter base, and that a Trump-Biden matchup could be another close race, and Trump is working hard on seeking support in the states that were tightest last time around.

However, so far he hasn’t officially announced a 2024 run — and some of his fans still believe that this is because he’ll be somehow ‘reinstated’ (despite there being no Constitutional provision for any such thing) into the presidency.
