You cannot be sure that most of the Weimar resident had voted for Hitler though: In the final two free elections before Hitler’s rise to power, in July and November 1932, the Nazis received 38% and 33% of the vote respectively, not enough to bring them into government. In the 1932 presidential election, Hitler lost to Hindenburg by a wide margin. Hitler came to power not through elections, but because Hindenburg and the circle around Hindenburg decided to appoint him chancellor in January 1933. This was the result of backroom dealing and power politics, not any kind of popular vote.
