A new Rasmussen poll has found that a majority of voters believe that public officials should not be punished for questioning the outcome of the 2020 election.
The survey asked voters, “Should public figures be punished for saying they believe the 2020 election was stolen?” 54% of voters responded “no,” with 11% of voters unsure.
While a majority of Democrats polled agreed that officials should face repercussions, a majority of Republicans and independents disagree.
This poll undermines a narrative that Democrats have been trying to build since the election in November. Democrats have been attempting to portray those who questioned the elections as undermining the country.
However, it seems the majority of voters respect others’ rights to ask questions and have reservations about how an election was conducted.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called on Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to resign after the January 6th Capital riot and even attributed the deaths to Cruz for questioning the election. Cruz rightly responded by pointing out how he was doing his job in asking hard questions. Republicans will need to maintain the will to ask hard questions, and thankfully, they will have the backing of the people.
