A new poll conducted by two academic researchers revealed the degree to which the Republican Party has dumped conservatism for authoritarianism as 52% of Republicans would support Trump postponing the 2020 election if Republicans in Congress supported it.
The Washington Post published the findings of the poll, “Nearly half of Republicans (47 percent) believe that Trump won the popular vote, which is similar to this finding. Larger fractions believe that millions of illegal immigrants voted (68 percent) and that voter fraud happens somewhat or very often (73 percent). Again, this is similar to previous polls. Moreover, 52 percent said that they would support postponing the 2020 election, and 56 percent said they would do so if both Trump and Republicans in Congress were behind this.”
The Republican Party is no longer the party of Lincoln and Reagan and is now the party of blind following of Trump. Any Republican who is not supporting this president with no questions asked is going to find themselves drummed out of the party. The party of Trump doesn’t believe in math. They believe that Trump really won the popular vote. The party of Trump believes in imaginary voter fraud and would support Trump suspending the 2020 election and ruling like a dictator.
Donald Trump has turned the majority of the Republican Party into a personality cult. Trump is the least popular president in modern US political history, but the Republicans are in total denial of the reality that they are worshipping an empty suit who is never going to deliver on any of his promises.
A majority of Republicans are willing to trash American democracy and sell the country out to the cult of Trump.
