(CNS News) -- A new post-election poll shows that 36% of Biden voters were not aware of the evidence linking Joe Biden to corrupt financial dealings with Communist China through his son Hunter. Further, 13% of these voters (or 4.6% of Biden’s total vote) say that had they known these facts, they would have not voted for the former vice president.

Such a shift away from Biden would have meant President Trump would have won the election with 295 electoral votes, according to the Media Research Center (MRC), confirming that the national media played an instrumental role in stealing the election for the Democrats.


“It is an indisputable fact that the media stole the election," said MRC President Brent Bozell.  "The American electorate was intentionally kept in the dark. During the height of the scandal surrounding Hunter Biden’s foreign dealings, the media and the big tech companies did everything in their power to cover it up."

"Twitter and Facebook limited sharing of the New York Post’s reports, and the liberal media omitted it from their coverage or dismissed it as Russian disinformation," said Bozell. 

“Now we know the impact of that cover-up," he added.  "4.6% of Biden voters say they would not have voted for him had they been aware of evidence of this scandal. This story would have potentially changed the outcome of this election."

"The media and Silicon Valley were fully aware of this, so they actively tried to prevent it from reaching the American public," said Bozell.  "The American people deserved to know the truth; now it’s too late.”

The nationwide survey of 1,000 voters was conducted Nov. 3 by McLaughlin & Associates.

Voters were asked about the bombshell reporting from the New York Post: “At the time you cast your vote for President, were you aware that evidence exists in emails, texts, eyewitness testimony and banking transactions that the FBI has been investigating since last year directly linking Joe Biden to a corrupt financial arrangement between a Chinese company with connections to the Chinese communist party and Hunter Biden’s business, which may have personally benefited Joe Biden financially?”

While 73% of respondents said they had heard about these allegations, 27% had not — including 36% of Biden voters. Those Biden voters were then asked: “If you had been aware of this actual evidence in emails, texts, testimony and banking transactions being investigated by the FBI, would you have...”

Those voters were then given several options: still voted for Joe Biden (86.9%), voted for a third party candidate (5.6%), not voted for any presidential candidate (4.7%), not voted at all (1.7%) or switched their vote to Donald Trump (1.1%).

The net effect: 13.1% of these voters (4.6% of Biden’s overall vote) say they would not have voted for Biden if they had been properly informed. Applying this to the most closely-decided states, Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin would today all be in the Trump column, giving the President 295 electoral college votes.
