News That Will Drive You To Drink

Happy Hour News

Guys, I think we found the matching ⅔ from the poll yesterday (remember, the one that posits that ⅓ who thinks the GOP is on the right track?) – here’s the 60% or so who are afraid that democracy is dying:

A new NPR/Ipsos poll finds that 64% of Americans believe U.S. democracy is “in crisis and at risk of failing.” That sentiment is felt most acutely by Republicans: Two-thirds of GOP respondents agree with the verifiably false claim that “voter fraud helped Joe Biden win the 2020 election” — a key pillar of the “Big Lie” that the election was stolen from former President Donald Trump…

…Nearly two-thirds of poll respondents agree that U.S. democracy is “more at risk” now than it was a year ago. Among Republicans, that number climbs to 4 in 5.

Overall, 70% of poll respondents agree that the country is in crisis and at risk of failing.

    Well, TFG had some help trashing the Republic. Between the Covidiots, the Quers, the insurrectionists, the conspiracy believers, and their allies in congress and the state houses we’ve had a rough time. Biden is doing a decent job of projecting normalcy while addressing the nation’s problems, but the congressional GQP will not be persuaded, will not help, and most assuredly, they never will. It’s like they’re on a suicide mission to destroy democracy and install a dictatorship, not realizing that the jack boots will come for them too eventually. I don’t expect to experience real normalcy ever again. It all slipped away when TFG was in charge…

    • Hey, don’t forget the long, LONG line of Republic trashers that came before: the Dixiecrats-who-turned-Republican, Dick “Ratbastard” Nixon, Ronnie Ray-gun, Rush, Noot, Cheney, Moscow Mitch, the Teabagger mobs, etc etc etc.

      Potus Pol Pot was never the disease but the symptom.

      • Also, the hard core of reactionary fascist oligarchs who have been battling democracy since the Great Class Traitor FDR saved their worthless asses from the mobs with the New Deal, which they’ve steadfastly fought ever since.
