“We don’t,” Psaki told The Washington Post‘s Olivier Knox.

The question stemmed from a new CNN/SSRS poll that asked respondents, “Thinking about the results of the 2020 presidential election, do you think that Joe Biden legitimately won enough votes to win the presidency, or not?”
According to the poll, 30% of Americans do not believe Biden legitimately won the election, including 70% of Republicans. Twenty-three percent of Republicans believe Biden legitimately won enough votes to win the presidency.
Fifty percent of Republicans claim there is “solid evidence” to show Biden did not legitimately win the election. The poll was conducted from April 21-26 and published on Friday.
Psaki issued an additional response on Twitter on Monday.
“More from my full comment: [Joe Biden] is president for all Americans no matter who they voted for. And so our focus is on continuing to plug away on pushing for policies that will help everyone and through that work we can rebuild trust in government. That government can work,” Psaki wrote.
She added, “Our view is the election was certified and confirmed by election officials from both parties in every state. Court challenges were fully heard.”

Former President Donald Trump also seems to still be pushing his unsubstantiated election claims.
He said in a statement on Monday, “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!”
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) fired back, saying, “The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”
