IDK I have my doubts based on his teaching
A true Catholic will answer yes to that question. They may doubt some of his teachings but they will not doubt his validity. My understanding of Catholicism is that any pope can be wrong in personal opinions but can not be wrong when speaking ex-cathedra. Having wrong teachings and opinions does not make a pope invalid.

When did he speak ex-cathedral?
I’m not even sure he knows what it means
A group of traditional catholic children sent him a spiritual bouquet and he was surprised that they actually counted prayers, go figure
Some say he is not even a valid priest or bishop cos he was ordained with the rites of montini which are the same as the Anglican rites that were declared invalid by True pope Leo 13

To my knowledge, he hasn't. But he was elected by the College of Bishops, therefore either he is pope or the Roman Catholic churches claims of infallibility are wrong.

It only applies to valid popes, not anti-popes or invalid popes, or usurpers, or imposters

Sedevacantism is a doctrinal position within traditionalist Catholicism which holds that the present occupier of the Holy See is not a valid pope due to the mainstream church's alleged espousal of modernism and that, for lack of a valid pope, the See is vacant.

Here is a pretty good definition.

That explains a lot.

He doubts they’re chosen in an election.

The church decides who are anti-popes. Not the laity. Right now the church says the pope is valid. Therefore he is valid. If you disagree then you aren't Catholic.

Then he must teach the catholic faith alone and stop refusing to be the sovereign Roman pontiff

Whether or not he is teaching the catholic faith is not for you to decide. It is for the magesterium of the church to decide. If they say he is teaching the true catholic faith then he is. That is, if you are really a Catholic.
