67 percent of Democrats believe it is "definitely true" or "probably true" that "Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected." There is no evidence of Russia tampering with vote tallies. pic.twitter.com/mgSx3MEtnQ

Answer: No. They’re still delusional.
Peter J. Hasson has a very good point: The Resistance has been waiting in anticipation for years for the Mueller report, and now that it’s finally here, it looks to be a big disappointment for them. But will it change their minds?
Hasson pulled up this Economist/You Gov poll from right before the 2018 midterms, and a good two-thirds of Democrats polled said it was definitely or at least probably true that Russia tampered with vote tallies to get Trump elected.
Now check the wording of that poll. It’s not, “Did the Donald Trump campaign collude with the Russians?” or “Were Russia’s Facebook ads enough to tip the election?” No, these were Democrats asked if Russia had actually tampered with the vote tallies — something Barack Obama assured us was impossible, though Jill Stein said was possible if Russian agents infiltrated American polling places and slipped floppy drives into the voting machines while no one was looking and reprogrammed them. And then she actually wanted donations to fund her recount effort.
If there’s one thing that’s been debunked, it’s that Russia actually tampered with votes, and yet Democrats swallowed that hook, line, and sinker.
