Indeed. I analysed the misinformation process in my own posting.
1) Obama says "election hacking", a loose phrase.
2) Secondary reports then quote this as "vote hacking", an even looser phrase.
3) The man in the street reads "vote hacking" and understands it as "vote-machine hacking". This leads to the poll results mentioned in the OP. The people holding this opinion presumably think they got it from Obama.
Thi is an example of "equivocation"- conveying a false idea by using a word or phrase which can be justfied as true in a different sense.

If you visit my youtube page, you'll find dozens and dozens of videos of various media outlets using the phrase"hacked our election". This was obviously done on purpose.
Is it all in one montage video? That would be very useful!

they believe it without seeing any evidence,they believe based solely on an accusation made by Obama.
Repeating this over and over doesn't make it true. There was evidence of Russian involvement from before any document was ever released. You weren't paying attention then and you're not paying attention now.

doesn't this really say that 52% of Democrats are idiots, where only 25% of republicans are idiots? To me, that sounds about right.
