Number of the Day

52 percent: The percentage of Republican respondents in a Washington Post survey who would support postponing the 2020 election if Donald Trump were to say it "should be postponed until the country can make sure that only eligible American citizens can vote."

More than half of Republicans would just reflexively agree to suspend elections on the word of Donald Trump, who has consistently lied about widespread voter fraud.

The canary in the authoritarian coal mine.


Other findings include: "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)."
