Donald Trump is the legitimate winner by Gallup/ABC/WP

Today we have two new polls showing how the public views the legitimacy of the Donald Trump election. Gallup, which purposely stayed away from horse race polling after their failure in 2012, came out with a poll showing 84% of the public viewing the election of Donald Trump as legitimate. Not surprisingly, those not accepting the results seem to be exclusively Hillary Clinton supporters.
