    Stole the election is very small subset.

    My point is many will have questions about "legitimacy" but they neither necessarily rise to the level of "stealing" or blaming "ACORN" and you can't tell from this poll. So stop citing it.

    Political Science and polling are supposed to illuminate answers to questions about people's beliefs and political actions based on nuanced study, not "regrouping".

      think the election was stolen. That is significant. I don't get your attempt to minimize it.

      "necessarily" it means you don't know what the relative percentage of people who believe this is. And yet you're completely comfortable in stating that its "very small". As I said, you raise reasonable concerns over the questions, but that sure as hell doesn't mean that their aren't substantial numbers of republicans who believe this nonsense.
