The vast majority of American voters say they believe that the censored story on Hunter Biden’s “Laptop from Hell” scandal could have changed the election results if it wasn’t suppressed by Big Tech and the media, a new poll has revealed.
According to a new survey from Rasmussen Reports, nearly two-thirds of likely U.S. voters believe the Hunter Biden laptop scandal is a big deal.
Rasmussen’s analysis found that many voters “think it could have changed the 2020 election.”
Of 1,000 US voters polled by Rasmussen Reports, 63% believe the story of Hunter’s abandoned laptop is important.
44 percent said they think it’s “very important.”
By comparison, only 17% of those polled say the story is “not important at all.”
The reporting from The New York Post, which first broke the story in the run-up to the 2020 election, caused the outlet’s Twitter account to be shut down by the social media giant.
Facebook also censored the coverage as well while major media outlets dismissed the story as “Russian disinformation” without a shred of evidence.
The censorship effort was so successful that most American voters were unaware of the scandal when they cast their ballots.
According to the Rasmussen poll, almost half of voters (48%) polled also believe President Biden may not have won the 2020 election if the contents of his son’s laptop had been fully reported on by the mainstream media at the time.
Hunter’s laptop contained a trove of documents, including emails and texts, that revealed how he used his family’s name and political connections as leverage in his overseas business dealings.
The communications also suggest that Joe Biden used the weight of his office as U.S. vice president to profit from Hunter’s shady business deals.
Still, 46% of Americans polled said they didn’t believe heightened media coverage of the laptop wouldn’t have changed the 2020 election results.
The poll was conducted between Aug. 31 and Sep. 1 and came after Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed that his social media platform was pressured by the FBI to suppress reports on the laptop.
Zuckerberg dropped the bombshell during an interview with Joe Rogan last month.
He revealed that Facebook suppressed reports on Hunter’s laptop following a vague FBI warning about possible “Russian propaganda” tied to the 2020 presidential election.
“Basically, the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us — some folks on our team — and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert,’” the tech billionaire said at the time.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
