Oh, gee, you mean when a sitting pr*sident denies reality and deliberately undermines the legitimacy of our democracy, his supporters are apt to follow suit?
Of all the things Trump has fucked up — and they are legion — his cancerous influence on our democratic norms and values may be the most pernicious and longest-lasting.
Case in point: Only 3 percent of Trump voters consider Joe Biden the legitimate president-elect. By way of comparison, about 2 percent of Americans believe the Earth is flat. Do with that what you will.
Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election. Nearly every supporter of President Donald Trump thinks otherwise, according to a new CNBC/Change Research poll.
As the president makes unsubstantiated claims about electoral malfeasance and sows doubts about vote tallies, only 3% of Trump voters surveyed said they accept Biden’s victory as legitimate, the survey released Monday found. A staggering 73% of respondents consider Trump the legitimate winner. Another 24% said they are not sure.
A mere 3% of Trump voters believe he should concede to Biden and start the peaceful transfer of power. Another 31% want the president to fight in court until states certify results. Two-thirds, or 66%, think Trump should never concede.
I sometimes envy these people’s ability to wall off consensus reality and live 24/7 in a phantasmagorical Wonka Land where butterscotch flows from candy rock formations and unicorns grow peppermint dildos out of their foreheads. But, all things being equal, I prefer to be sane.
Of course, that and a dollar will get me a cup of coffee … in a country where Joe Biden is indisputably president-elect.
