American Democracy Suffers Consequences of Republicans Indulging Trump’s Big Lie
October 27, 2021
|For almost a year now, Republicans have recklessly indulged Donald Trump and allowed his Big Lie about the 2020 election to infect the core of their party. Not only did their spineless refusal to stand up to Trump lead to the violent assault of the Capitol and police officers, but it continues to undermine our democracy.|
According to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, just 26% of Republicans agree the 2020 election was free and fair, and a majority of GOP voters say the results should be overturned.
Politico: “In a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, 35% of voters — including three in five Republicans — say the 2020 election should definitely or probably be overturned.”
Politico: “While the vast majority of Democrats (86%) and a majority (51%) of independents say the election was free and fair, just 26% of Republicans agree — the latest evidence of how deep DONALD TRUMP’s lies about the election have permeated the GOP.”
Politico: “Just 9 percent of Republicans say they trust the election system a lot.”
