A majority of Republicans still believe Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election and blame his loss to Joe Biden on illegal voting, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.
The May 17 to 19 national poll found that 53% of Republicans believe Trump, their party's nominee, is the true president now, compared with 3% of Democrats and 25% of all Americans.
About one-quarter of adults believe the Nov 3 election was tainted by illegal voting including 56% of Republicans, according to the poll.
The figures were roughly the same in a poll that ran from Nov 13 to 17 which found that 28% of all Americans and 59% of Republicans felt that way.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll showed that 61% of Republicans believe the election was stolen from Donald Trump. Only about 29% of Republicans believe he should share some of the blame for his supporters' January 6 deadly riot at the US Capitol.
Still, 67% of overall respondents say they trust election officials in their town to do their job honestly, including 58% of Republicans, according to the poll. The poll has a credibility interval, a measure of precision, of about 4 percentage points.
