Trump’s WH2020 Big Lie Could Threaten Democracy Itself – policybetting.com

The aforementioned NBC poll has just come out and raises concern even more that Trump’s refusal to accept last November’s outcome could have a lasting impact on trust in the democratic process itself.

Elected politicians get their authority from the fact that they have been elected and if this is questioned, then you are entering very dangerous territory.

We all know the story and on January 6 we saw how dangerous the big lie is. While dozens of court cases to overturn the outcome have failed, a significant portion of the Republican electoral base has turned away from trusting the process.

Just look at the Republican for a dramatic change. From 84% of having confidence a year ago today to 41% today represents a huge change of opinion.

Where this ends I don’t know.

Mike Smithson
