    Half of Republicans say they would support postponing the 2020 election if Trump prop

    The hell?!

    Critics of President Trump have repeatedly warned of his potential to undermine American democracy. Among the concerns are his repeated assertions that he would have won the popular vote had 3 to 5 million “illegals” not voted in the 2016 election, a claim echoed by the head of a White House advisory committee on voter fraud.

    Claims of large-scale voter fraud are not true, but that has not stopped a substantial number of Republicans from believing them. But how far would Republicans be willing to follow the president to stop what they perceive as rampant fraud? Our recent survey suggests that the answer is quite far: About half of Republicans say they would support postponing the 2020 presidential election until the country can fix this problem.

    LOL, its a weighted sample they took.

    Do you know what that means?

    It means they adjust results to what "they" think the population actually thinks.

    So maybe only 10% or 5% said this but they adjusted the results.

    The most inaccurate form of polling outside of exit polls that exists.

    I mean hell, they polled around 1400 people so why not just tell us what they said?

    Why change the numbers?

    I made the same thread, so maybe the mods could merge? Great minds and all that. But yea I am actually surprised this number isn't higher. Also what about 2018? That's something not asked. Would he propose that be postponed if either we are in up to our neck with NK or Mueller still hasn't decided anything yet? I say its not beyond his mentality to do that at all.

    They can all kiss my ass, too.

    Here's what's heading to the Supreme Court in the fall.

    The Sixth Circuit of Appeals ruled last year that Ohio's voter purge process did indeed violate federal law and mandated that purged voters’ provisional ballots be counted in the 2016 presidential election, allowing 7,500 voters’ ballots to count in a critical swing state. The state of Ohio appealed the decision, and the Supreme Court agreed in May to review it this fall.

    The Department of Justice reversed its position in the Supreme Court case over Ohio's practice of purging inactive voters from its rolls, siding with the state in a closely-watched voting rights lawsuit.

    The amicus brief is the latest indication of the federal government's about-face on voting rights under President Donald Trump. In February, the DOJ reversed its position on a Texas voter ID law, supporting the law advocates say disenfranchises minorities. In May, the president appointed a voter integrity commission that members have said will seek out proof of fraud, and in June, the DOJ signaled an interest in enforcing federal laws requiring purges as a part of voter roll maintenance with a letter to 44 states asking for details on their purge processes.

    Yeah, that poll makes Republicans look like they don't respect or understand our Constitution.

    BTW, why are you using a girly avatar again?

    You're damn right it can't and it most certainly won't. But it's outrageous that so many people would be cool with it because of the bogus notion of widespread voter fraud.

    Hmmm, what should we conclude from that?

    After some careful thought, I have concluded that Republicans probably don't respect or understand our Constitution.
