(RightIsRight.co) – The vast majority of US voters believe former President Donald Trump would have won the presidential election in November 2020 if they had been exposed to the truth about First Son Hunter Biden’s lost laptop, a new poll has found.
Revelations based on material from Hunter Biden’s laptop – often dubbed “the laptop from hell” – began to emerge in conservative news outlets such as The New York Post in October 2020. However, the mainstream media claimed the laptop was “fake” and a “Russian disinformation” operation.
Almost two years later, a lot more information has emerged from the laptop, including a recently found backup of the First Son’s iPhone. That has spurred more and more questions about Hunter Biden’s questionable business dealings and his father’s knowledge of them, in addition to the son’s seeming drug, alcohol, and sex addictions.
Last week, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg told podcaster Joe Rogan that in the fall of 2020, Facebook suppressed the Hunter Biden laptop story under the direction of the FBI, which saw it as Russian disinformation.
Almost fourth-fifths of the American voters now say that if the mainstream media had covered the story truthfully ahead of the 2020 election, then Trump would have been the clear winner, as per a Technometrica Institute of Policy and Politics poll, as cited by Newsmax.
“Terming the laptop ‘disinformation’ by the FBI, Intelligence Community, Congress, and the Biden campaign, along with Big Tech, impacted voters. A significant majority — 78% — believe that access to the correct information could have been critical to their decision at the polls,” stated TIPP President Raghavan Mayur.
During his 2020 campaign, Biden showed a letter by 51 US intelligence officials declaring the Hunter Biden laptop revelations to be a Russian disinformation operation.
The TIPP survey discovered that 74% of Americans believe that the FBI and the broader US intelligence community deliberately sought to mislead the public on that count. Only 11% of the electorate continue to view the Hunter Biden laptop story as “Russian disinformation.”
The poll shows that 47% of the American voters and 71% of the Democrats would have changed their vote in 2020 had they known the truth about the laptop.
A total of 51% of those surveyed gave the media a D or an F, that is, failing grades, on the coverage of the Hunter Biden revelations ahead of the 2020 election.
The vast majority of respondents – 81% – said a special counsel should be appointed to probe the contents of the First Son’s lost laptop.
The TITP survey polled 1,335 American adults on August 2-4, with a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points. A smaller group among those – 437 – said they followed closely the Hunter Biden laptop revelations. For that group, the margin of error is 4.8%.
