Nearly 1 in 5 Americans Consider Bush's Reelection Illegitimate

From a story in Today's New York Times:

Still, in a telling contrast with the 2000 election, 82 percent of respondents said that Mr. Bush legitimately won on Nov. 2. Just before Election Day, 50 percent of respondents said they considered Mr. Bush's defeat of Al Gore in 2000 a legitimate victory....

Matthew Gross aptly comments:

"18% consider Bush's reelection illegitimate? That's pretty damned high for a conspiracy theory."
