2020 Election Questions are *NOT* Going Away: A New Poll is a Huge Warning to Republicans
Plus: Disastrous numbers for Georgia's Governor Brian Kemp...
The media’s all-out efforts to silence Americans who have questions about 2020 election integrity is backfiring.
Far from burying election questions, the effect of stifling free speech and attacking anyone who doubts the results is those questions now remain for millions of Americans.
A recent Morning Consult poll exposes the giant divide between Democrats who uncritically accept the results and the rest of America. Just to sum up the media’s censorship campaign: It’s not working.
“Republican trust in elections ticks down again: 33 percent of GOP voters say they trust U.S. elections, down from 38 percent last week,” Morning Consult reported on a Jan. 22-25 survey of 1,990 registered voters nationwide.
As you can see, the real gap in these numbers is not between Republicans and Independents, but between Democrats and the rest of American voters.
While touting that a pathetic “65 percent of voters say the election was free and fair,” it highlights the total as including 92 percent of Democrats and 32 percent of Republicans. As a bit of context, 74 million Americans voted for Donald Trump; 68% of of that number who don’t trust elections is over 50 million Americans.
As should be apparent to Big Tech and the mainstream media, when you shut down free speech and close off the open marketplace of ideas, Americans do not just quietly accept it and move on. If anything, it only fuels further distrust, and we are seeing that in the catastrophic public opinion numbers on U.S. elections.
Returning to the Morning Consult poll, you have to wonder if there is a certain aspect to the censorship that is “successful,” however:
Democrats are more motivated to vote in future elections based on the outcome of this election: 53 percent of Democrats say they are more motivated, compared to 36 percent of Republicans. Republicans are also three times more likely than Democrats to say they are less motivated, 15 percent compared to 5 percent.
This is a huge warning siren for Republican congressmembers and senators running in future elections. The state legislatures better ensure that elections are widely believed to be “free and fair” by Republicans if you hope to ever see elected office again.
In more polling news, there is an AJC poll in Georgia that spells trouble for Republicans. But not just in ways that the headline-readers might think.
In politics news, one of the most controversial stories that has recently come to light is Senator Cruz’s statements on the 2020 election and distancing himself from Trump.
One of the more ridiculous news items of the day is the nomination of election-legitimacy-denier Stacey Abrams’ nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Abrams joins Black Lives Matter as 2021 nominees. A few nuggest about this “mostly peaceful” movement: The Black Lives Matter riots in 140 cities following the death of George Floyd at the hands of police led to at least $2 billion in damages, over six people killed, hundreds of arrests and the National Guard called in 21 states.
The BLM riots even included one at the nation’s capitol that went on for weeks. Dozens of police officers & secret service agents were injured. Millions in property damage. There was defacement of public monuments, including one of Mahatma Gandhi.
In terms of scale and cost, the BLM riots were objectively worse than the riots at the Capitol building breach. While over 600 suspects were charged in the BLM riots, most of them summarily let go, a little over 200 suspects were charged in the Capitol riots.
Meanwhile, the world is getting a real-world fact check on its “coup” narrative.
In more international news, there is growing concern about Iran’s nuclear program.
Lastly, Jen Psaki called out “Conservative Twitter” for daring to mock her, umm, umm, press conferences.
