57% Of Dems Support ‘Refusing To Certify The Election Results If Trump Wins’

The Washington Examiner reports, “A majority of Democrats would back efforts by lawmakers to stop former President Donald Trump from entering the White House by blocking his congressional certification of victory.”

“In a poll that suggests a Democratic-style Jan. 6 protest, the latest Rasmussen Reports survey found that 57% of Democrats would support ‘refusing to certify the election results if Trump wins,” the Examiner observed.

The story continued:

What’s more, 52% of Democrats rejected the Supreme Court’s recent decision to block states from keeping Trump off primary and caucus ballots if local officials believe he backed the Jan. 6 MAGA riot inside the Capitol that stalled the certification of President Joe Biden’s election over Trump.

While it is somewhat ironic that Democrats would be OK doing what some Republican lawmakers planned to do in the certification vote of Biden, Democrats have rolled out that strategy in the past.

The survey showed that an even bigger majority of Democrats said Republicans should not have tried to block the certification of Biden’s 2020 election victory.

63% of Biden Strong Disapprovers think Republicans should have refused to certify the election if they suspected fraud.

Democrat Insurrection?

“Importantly, among voters who strongly support the idea of Congress refusing to certify the 2024 election if Trump wins, 58% don’t think Republicans in Congress should have refused to certify the 2020 election results,’ the analysis shared with Secrets said,” WEX noted.

In what will certainly prove to be a tense election, this data suggests that Democrats prepared to do what they accused Trump and his supporters of doing – disobeying the will of the people and taking over the government.

Just because they don’t like the results of an election.

There’s a word for that.
