Poll: Massive Number of Americans Think Cover-up About the Laptop Changed the Election

There’s a new poll out in the wake of some of the concerning allegations about the FBI regarding the Hunter Biden laptop.

Now a massive number of Americans — 79 percent — believe that President Donald Trump would have been elected if people had known the truth about the Hunter Biden laptop.


The survey of 1,335 adults was conducted earlier this month by the New Jersey-based Technometrica Institute of Policy and Politics. The vast majority of those following the issue said they believe that the laptop is real, while only 11 percent still believe it was Russian disinformation.

In addition to the report about the FBI squashing the case until after the election, the FBI also went to Facebook and told them that there was going to be a Russian information dump and that was why Facebook suppressed the laptop story. That was in addition to Twitter suppressing the New York Post story about the laptop in October 2020, even preventing people from sharing the URL on the platform before the election. Then there was also the letter from the 51 former intelligence officials who claimed without any evidence that the laptop was likely Russian disinformation. Joe Biden relied on that letter during the debates right before the election to dismiss the concern about the laptop when he likely knew it was real. Listen at about 9:15 on the video.

Almost three-quarters of Americans following the issue — 74 percent — believe that the FBI and the intel community deliberately misled voters.


“Terming the laptop ‘disinformation’ by the FBI, Intelligence Community, Congress, and the Biden campaign, along with Big Tech, impacted voters,” said Technometrica President Raghavan Mayur, who’s been recognized as the most accurate pollster in recent presidential elections. “A significant majority—78 percent—believe that access to the correct information could have been critical to their decision at the polls.”

In fact, 47 percent said that knowing before the election that the laptop contents were real and not “disinformation” would have changed their voting decision—including more than two-thirds (71 percent) of Democrats.

Almost 8 of 10 respondents said that a truthful interpretation of the laptop would have likely changed the election’s outcome more in favor of Trump.

The poll also found that more than half—51 percent—give the media failing grades (D or F) for their coverage of the topic of the laptop.

Also, 81 percent of Americans said they want the attorney general to appoint an independent special counsel to investigate possibly incriminating email and other evidence contained on Hunter Biden’s laptop.


If FBI agents were knowingly putting bad information out there, that’s “election interference,” former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Tucker Carlson.

It’s more than time to get a special counsel that is trustworthy on the case because given what we’ve already seen, we don’t know now if they aren’t just delaying the Hunter Biden case past the election yet again, just as they allegedly did in 2020. Not to mention that the FBI needs a thorough house cleaning.

But the bottom line shows that the public is getting it and that can’t bode well for Democrats in the midterms.
