John Nichols of The Nation recently wrote an article titled Republicans Will Take Their Assault on Democracy to Congress—and It Will Be Awful. If Vice President Mike Pence and other constitutionally minded legislators challenge the electoral college, the only thing awful will be the Washington establishment being put in its place.
Nichols touts Biden’s win as a mandate backed by 51.3% of the popular vote. But it’s the measure of Biden’s win that has left many Trump supporters shaking their heads in disbelief.
How did a semi-demented, basement-dwelling candidate who drew crowds of hundreds compared to Trump’s tens of thousands win? Is Biden really more popular than Democrat Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the last president to beat an incumbent with more electoral votes?
Alabama Republican Mo Brooks signaled weeks ago his plans to lead a drive to object to the Electoral College in Jan. 6. He told reporters, “In my judgment, if only lawful votes by eligible American citizens were cast, Donald Trump won the Electoral College by a significant margin, and Congress’s certification should reflect that. This election was stolen by the socialists engaging in extraordinary voter fraud and election theft measures.”
Since then, it has been revealed that over 7,000 under-aged voters cast ballots in Georgia. That’s on top of the 1,000 dead people who allegedly voted in the state. This and other irregularities are a good reason for believing there is still a path to a Trump victory.
