Americans reject Trump’s victory claims
A bipartisan majority of Americans do not accept Trump's premature victory declaration in the US presidential election and most are willing to wait for all votes to be counted before deciding who won, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.
The Nov 4-5 survey also showed that the public has largely brushed aside Trump's assessment of the election result as rigged.
According to the poll, few Americans agree with the president's view on the race: 16% of US adults, including 7% of Democrats and 30% of Republicans, accept Trump's victory declaration. Another 84%, including 93% of Democrats and 70% of Republicans, said that "candidates should not be declaring victory until all of the votes are counted."
