A large majority of Trump supporters continue to believe that President Joe Biden won the election because of voter fraud. A Monmouth University poll released on June 21 found that 63 percent of Republicans believe that former President Donald Trump was the true winner. In November, the figure was 66 percent; in January, 69 percent; and 64 percent in March. It has remained remarkably steady. Following the election, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson was open to the possibility that fraud may have occurred. However, after Trump attorney Sidney Powell failed to produce the explosive evidence she’d claimed she had, Carlson appeared to sour on the theory and has largely stayed away from it. This is why I was surprised to see him address the topic on his Friday night show. “It wasn’t just the way votes were counted or the voting machines that shook people’s faith in our democracy. It was the preceding four years and the way our ruling class behaved during those four years,” Carlson said. He had come across a tweet thread posted by podcaster Darryl Cooper which he said “crystalized” the reasons why large numbers of Trump supporters believe the election was “rigged.”
