‘Three-quarters’ Of Republicans Think Election ‘Not Conducted Fairly’

According to the exit poll, about 75 percent of Georgia Republican voters who participated in the runoff election said that the 2020 presidential election on November 3rd, 2020 was not conducted fairly in their state.

CNN reported, “Among Georgia Republicans who voted in the runoff elections, about three-quarters say that the presidential election in Georgia was not conducted fairly, while more than 9 in 10 Democrats say the election, which President-elect Joe Biden won by less than 12,000 votes, was fair.” 

But while most Republicans do not believe the vote was fair in the general election, about 50 percent of GOP voters in the runoff election on Tuesday said they believe their votes will be counted.

In November, 92% of Georgia Republicans said they had confidence the election results would be counted accurately.
