https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/monkey-cage/wp/2017/08/10/in-a-new-poll-half-of-republicans-say-they-would-support-postponing-the-2020-election-if-trump-proposed-it/?utm_term=.2f466f85a129
Nearly half of Republicans (47 percent) believe that Trump won the popular vote, which is similar to this finding. Larger fractions believe that millions of illegal immigrants voted (68 percent) and that voter fraud happens somewhat or very often (73 percent). Again, this is similar to previous polls.

Moreover, 52 percent said that they would support postponing the 2020 election, and 56 percent said they would do so if both Trump and Republicans in Congress proposed this.

The only poll that counts is the one next year.

If Americans are paying even the slightest bit of attention then the republicans won’t have a majority in Congress in 2019. If they aren’t paying attention then they will lose the nation because that is exactly where events are heading if the republicans “postpone” the 2020 election.

It wouldn’t be a postponement, it would be a coup, because there is zero evidence of widespread voter fraud, just empty claims from trump that have already been debunked. trump claiming he heard someone who heard from someone else he saw a bunch of voter fraud is not evidence of voter fraud.

If carried far enough it is evidence of a coup of the democratic process in motion.

And I’m pretty sure that someone who outclasses Hitler in on the psychopath scale is not someone you want staging a coup in your country.

What this would in fact do is kick off the kind of civil war in the US that a-hole Putin would love to see.

Starting to see why he wanted trump in office, makes you wonder how much of the nonsense coming out of the trump White House is really being created in the Kremlin.

We can never again allow a civil war in this country.  Anyone who chooses such a path is not an American.  We have all the faculties to repair this nation; debate, analysis, reform, and public forum to spread ideas.  But flat out, all the idiots and ignorant fools are holding us back.  The opinionist, those that are so self-important they think their opinion is fact.  Those that would consider nuclear war a viable option, or even consider secession or civil war an option. 

  If these people consider it ok for total annihilation to be an option, then maybe we can consider eugenics to rid the planet of below average intelligence an option.

The problem isn’t the lack of intelligence on the part of far too many, the problem is an almost complete lack of empathy by people who have the power of life and death over billions.

Killing people because they don’t meet some arbitrary standard is something that some of the worst regimes in history have tried, it doesn’t work.

Tell it to the tea party and religious right.

  I was not seriously suggesting such a thing, for clarification.  It’s just an analogy, if others can choose nuclear war, death, or utter annihilation for the rest of us, that’s the equivalent of me choosing who lives or dies.  But I apologize if I was offensive.
