According to a new poll, a beautiful lie—something that a person so wants to believe is true that they refuse evidence proving them wrong—concerning Russian’s influence in the 2016 presidential election has consumed mainstream media and Democratic voters.
Mainstream media has so perpetuated the lie that Russia changed actual voter tallies in the 2016 contest between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, that a new poll from YouGov showed most Democratic voters still believe it.
Two of every three Democrats, per the poll, believe it is “definitely true” or “probably true” that “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected,” the Daily Caller’s Peter Hasson reported.
Check it out:
“Imagine if two years into Hillary’s presidency, 2/3 of Republicans thought she won because the Chinese tampered with voting tallies, despite no evidence whatsoever of China tampering with voting tallies,” Hasson added in another tweet.
While some mainstream media outlets will quietly admit that there was not physical tampering or hacking of voter tallies, they loudly and repeatedly claim Russia “hacked” the election.
September 22, 2017 – The DHS notifies select states that hackers targeted their election infrastructure before the vote on November 8, 2016. Although vote-counting systems were not impacted, computer networks containing voter info may have been scanned by Russian hackers. Some states reported attempts to infiltrate their computer systems.
CNN and other outlets, more than two years after the 2016 election, still repeat day in and day out the lie that Russia hacked the election
Remember when Hillary said she would support the outcome of the election?
During a rally at the University of North Carolina, Clinton said that those people who would not accept the election were “just sore losers.”
“The peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that makes America America. Look, some people are just sore losers,” Clinton said, per TownHall.
Looks like she is talking to 67 percent of Democratic voters.Note: The author of this article has included commentary that expresses an opinion and analysis of the facts.
