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.
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

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.
Good luck undoing this https://t.co/d5Z3ay1Qsn

No kidding — it’s going to be hard enough to get Democrats to accept the findings of the once-revered Mueller report.
Looks like the Hillary Clinton campaign and the media did their jobs pretty well, though; Dems are still walking around thinking Russians hacked into voting machines and changed the totals to elect Putin’s puppet.
First I’m seeing this. How sad

The irony? The drastic steps they were willing to take to prevent @realDonaldTrump from shutting down a report they will now not believe…

They believe what they want to believe. Like most people they resist any facts that conflict with those beliefs.

#HRC was right, manipulating Democrat voters is child's play

I don't think it matters. They probably still believe it and wouldn't switch their vote anyway. It's the Independents that matter.

The American liberal holds the unique distinction of being both the most obtuse & arrogant subculture on the planet. What’s most astonishing is they become even more arrogant and convinced of their brilliance each and every time they’re proven wrong.

The "bewilderment" phase. When a party's base slowly realizes their deeply held beliefs were nothing more than a carefully constructed facade, left to blow away in the wind.

Other than some Twitter trolls in a bunker somewhere and a handful of crappy Facebook ads. I'm not really sure what Russia did?

The brainwashing of Democrats, complements of Fake News Media.
Ask them about the percentage who believe that the DNC, DOJ, FBI, Fusion GPS, Brennan and Steele conspired to remove a newly elected president. The overwhelming sound of "huh?", will be heard.

Americans cannot let this go without prison time for the officials who created a rumor and turned it into a national security investigation

Seriously, though, we’re looking at two years of media indoctrination that needs to be confronted, and it won’t be easy.
