Iowa voters would view Hart as an illegitimate congresswoman if installed by House: Poll

According to the survey, which was conducted for American Action Network by Republican polling firm Cygnal, 7-in-10 voters in the district say a dispute about election results should be decided by Iowa’s courts, while just 9% want the dispute decided by lawmakers in Washington. The poll includes two-thirds of voters who say they voted for Hart in the November election.

Additionally, 58% of voters in the poll say that if the House voted to overturn the state-certified election results and install Hart in Congress, they would view her as an illegitimate member. This includes 58% of voters in Davenport and 69% of voters in Des Moines, who would view her as illegitimate. Twenty-five percent of Hart’s own voters would also question her legitimacy, the poll says.

The Cygnal poll of 400 likely voters in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District has a margin of error of 4.9%.
