Why Trump supporters stand by debunked claim

(CNN) Donald Trump’s claim that he lost the popular vote

because “millions of people” voted illegally has been debunked, but some of his supporters are sticking by it.

Longtime Trump supporter Paula Johnson told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota that at her polling station in Nashua, New Hampshire, she caught people voting illegally who told her: “The president said I could vote, I’m here illegally.”

Camerota asked Johnson where she heard that President Barack Obama said undocumented immigrants could vote.

“Google it,” another Trump supporter, Susan DeLemus, said. “You can find it on Facebook.”

Camerota pulled out her phone to look for herself, eventually finding a video that had been deceptively edited.

“He had said nothing of the sort when you go back to the transcript,” she said.

The claim had been disproven, but Johnson was steadfast in her opinion, concluding: “I believe there is voter fraud in this country.”

The voters are supportive of Trump’s other controversial picks, too. Toni DiBartolo said that despite Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s inflammatory comments about Muslims, she believes he will give the President-elect sound advice.

As for Steve Bannon, Johnson said she would not be concerned if he turned out to be a white nationalist, as some have alleged.

On Trump’s proposed penalties for burning the flag

The voters agree that people who burn the American flag should go to jail, as Trump suggested in a tweet. However, instead of losing citizenship, Paul DiBartolo suggested community service.

The conversation took a quick turn to immigration, with Johnson claiming that illegal immigrants are burning“I can’t wait for the wall to be built,” she said.
