A new poll from Morning Consults shows 63% of Republicans do not believe the election was free and fair, while 92% of Democrats believe the opposite.

"40 percent of Republicans say it 'definitely' was not free and fair, and another 23 percent say it 'probably' was not," said polling firm Morning Consult. "That's nearly twice the share of Republicans who said the race would not be free and fair just before the election."

The poll also indicated that 71% of Republican voters do not believe the results in Michigan are reliable – a similar percentage to the results in Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – but 52% do not expect the election results to be overturned.

The poll also studied Republican voters' thoughts on when Trump should concede. Eighteen percent said "right away," while 46% say he should concede if he is not able to provide compelling legal evidence of fraud, and 28% say he should not concede at all.

The Morning Consult poll supports previous polls specifically focusing on Trump supporters, which indicated that only 3% of Trump voters believe Joe Biden is the legitimate winner of the election and 79% of Trump voters believe the election was stolen.
