A new poll from CNN finds that a majority of Republicans think that believing Donald Trump won in 2020 (which he did not) is an important tenet for being a Republican. The poll, released on Sunday, finds the Republicans polled almost evenly divided between whether Trump should be the nominee in 2024.
The poll also includes a list of items for people in both parties to say how important it is to what being a Republican or Democrat means to them.
One of the beliefs listed for Republicans is the false assertion Trump won in 2020. 59 percent believe that to be an important part of being in the GOP. 36 percent said it was “very important,” 23 percent said “somewhat important,” 15 percent said “not too important,” and 25 percent said “not at all important.”
