POLL: Nearly Half of Americans Think Donald Trump Is Not A Legitimate President

Branded Research Inc., or Brinc, is an innovative market research company that leverages social communities to engage with a vetted and trusted community of respondents to collect reliable data.  They performed pre-Inauguration research exclusively for Bros4America on the views of the American electorate with regards to Donald Trump and various forces that may have had an outcome on the 2016 presidential election. According to their polling, only around half of respondents viewed Donald Trump’s presidency as legitimate, with the same number of respondents feeling less confident in the leadership of the country moving forward.

The respondents also felt in significant numbers that FBI Director Comey had an effect on the outcome of the election with his letter to Congress, and that Russian hacks not only had an effect on the outcome of the election, but that they posed a significant national security threat to the United States.
