Two new surveys show that Republican voters have trouble getting their facts straight. A recent Occidental Public Polling survey shows that 59 percent of GOP voters believe that Russian President Vladimir Putin provided financial donations to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“Putin is a globalist like Hillary,” said Paul Watson, a Trump voter from Jackson, Miss. “Hillary is part of the political elite, while Donald Trump financed his campaign with his own money.”

However, the Trump campaign also relied on campaign donations. Another poll also revealed some disturbing information, according to Politico. A Politico/Morning Consult poll revealed that 49 percent of Trump voters believe he won the popular vote. In reality, Trump finished behind Clinton in the popular vote and only won because of the electoral college.
