Republicans may live in a fantasy world, but the reality is here. One of them is that the US does not have a process to confirm an election, especially two years later. Unfortunately, that’s a reality that a lot of Trump supporters can’t deal with.
In fact, as long as we’re upfront about it, Donald Trump himself can’t handle this fact and has attacked Republicans for saying so. According to him, that’s even the reason he withdrew his endorsement for Mo Brooks, of Alabama – not because Brooks is falling behind in his Senate race, but because he dared to propose. suggested that voters’ focus should be on the front, not on an election. already over.
Scary, a lot of voters – adults who actually go out in public, work with us, raise children and vote – hold the same false beliefs as Trump. Hill last year reported that a poll revealed more than a third of voters – and more than half of Republicans polled – believe the 2020 election “should be” overturned.
This is what happens when they face reality and someone tells them the honest truth.

Robin Vos, the Wisconsin Speaker of the State Assembly, didn’t even try to tell the assembled crowd that the election was fair and that Trump had lost. He pointed to the most basic election fact: nothing will change the outcome of the 2020 election. That’s still true even if you believe in “stolen elections” conspiracy theories, right? even if you support Trump, even if you believe that Joe Biden is actually a masked actor pretending to be the President.
Unfortunately, cult members don’t accept reality when it doesn’t fit their point of view.
