The Hugely Influential Elite 1% Say it’s Okay to Steal Elections by Cheating

BREAKING: WASHINGTON, D.C.— The hugely influential “elite 1%” of Americans say it’s “OK to win an election by cheating,” revealed a recent survey by pollster Scott Rasmussen.

The result “is the most terrifying poll result I’ve ever seen,” Rasmussen said in a podcast interview with The Daily Signal.

Rasmussen defines the “elite 1%” as people who make at least $150,000 a year, live in densely populated urban areas and have a postgraduate degree.

“The last one is very important,” he said. “We hear a lot about the diploma divide— that people with a college degree are more Democratic. Actually, it’s the post-grads who are different.”

Representative of 1% of the population, the elite 1% are “extraordinarily influential,” Rasmussen continued.

“A heavy concentration of them went to one of 12 elite schools…. About half of the policy positions in government, half the corporate board positions in America, are held by people who went to one of these dozen schools. Their views really play a large role in this country.”

“They are in power centers. Somebody who is in Manhattan or Washington, D.C., is in a different circle of public influence than somebody who lives in McKinney, TX. If you’re thinking of who’s shaping the mainstream media narrative, it’s this group.”

Pollster Scott Rasmussen

The elite 1% identify as fervent liberals. The faction gives President Joe Biden an 82% approval rating, a number over twice his 40% approval rating among other Americans.

In a poll conducted by his firm, RMG Research, early this year, Rasmussen asked 1,000 voters, “Suppose that your favorite candidate loses a close election. However, people on the campaign know that they can win by cheating without being caught. Would you rather have your candidate win by cheating or lose by playing fair?”

“Among all Americans, just 7% said they would want their candidate to win by cheating. But that number rose to 35% among the elite 1% and skyrocketed to 69% among those who are part of the politically obsessed 1%, meaning they talk about politics every day,” The Daily Signal summarized.

“I’ve been polling for a very long time and the last finding is the most terrifying poll result I’ve ever seen,” Rasmussen said. “It’s because they don’t have much respect for the opinions of voters.”

To explain the result, the pollster pointed to the attitudes of the elite 1%— particularly the “politically obsessed” segment— on government when compared to the general population.

While most Americans believe that we don’t have enough individual freedom, about half of the elite 1%— including 70% of the politically obsessed— believe we have “too much individual freedom,” Rasmussen explained.

“That’s just mind boggling to me, but part of the reason is because they trust [the] government. In America, it’s been 50 years since most voters trusted the government to do the right thing most of the time.

But among the elite 1%, 70% trust the government.”

“When I look at all the data, there’s a sense that most of us believe in government ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people.’ And I think they would say, it’s of and by the elites that is what’s best for the people. They really believe that if they could just make the decisions and get us out of the way, we would be a lot better off.”

In his pioneering work “The Elite 1% and the Battle for America’s Soul,” Rasmussen discusses this crucial segment of America’s population in greater detail. He and his research team have identified the driving forces behind the “destructive radicalism” driving America into a “cultural civil war.”

The elite 1%— who are mostly between ages 35- and 54-years-old (76%), white (86%), overwhelmingly liberal (73%) and socialist and in favor of “Sanders-like policies” (47%)— are far more radical than the rest of the U.S. population. Most dangerously, these are the policymakers and movers and shakers of society.

To emphasize their disparity from society, examine other Rasmussen poll findings and compare their answers to the rest of Americans.

Only 6% of voters have a favorable opinion of Congress, whereas 69% of the elite 1% have a favorable view of Congress.

Only 10% of voters have a favorable opinion of journalists, whereas 71% of the elite 1% have a favorable opinion of journalists.

Only 17% of most voters have a favorable opinion of college professors, whereas 76% of the elite 1% have a favorable opinion of college professors.

Further, the fundamental differences in attitudes, human experiences and mindsets between the common American and the elite 1% can be witnessed in the elite group’s radical views on climate change proposed policies and regulations, summarized by Real Clear Policy.

77% of the elite 1% would like to impose strict restrictions and rationing on the private use of gas, meat and electricity.

72% of the elite 1% favor banning gas powered vehicles.

69% of the elite 1% favor banning gas stoves.

58% of the elite 1% favor banning sport utility vehicles (SUVs).

55% of the elite 1% favor banning non-essential air travel.

53% of the elite 1% favor banning private air conditioning.

Astonishingly, the elite 1% believe that their radical views represent the majority of the average American’s beliefs, Rasmussen noted.

In 2020, the Democratic Party committed an unprecedented amount of ballot-stuffing and seat-stealing. The party underhandedly usurped the presidential election, along with hundreds of other federal government and local government seats.

Then, the emboldened left had the audacity to gaslight the American public when they admitted skepticism. Bestowed upon the accusers were the only repercussions; we became the quacks, the conspiracy theorists and the domestic terrorists, solely for calling out their wrongdoing.

Now, the elite are openly admitting that they support election fraud and seat-stealing. What a laugh in the face of the average American; they admittedly don’t respect us yet somehow simultaneously believe they speak for us.

We can probably anticipate history repeating itself in 2024. It’s far easier for a party to cheat when it’s already in power, and to the elite 1%, the ends will always justify the means. Achieving complete power, no matter how that power is obtained, is of the utmost importance.
