Trump’s supporters in trying to overturn the election have not fared well in elections since the violent assault on the Capitol, with a slate of conspiracy theorists attempting to assume positions overseeing elections in key swing states all losing their races last year. Instead, they have excelled at winning internal party contests and taking control of some state parties. Now they also have claimed one of the nation’s most powerful political positions.
This is what it looks like when your party is at odds with most of the voting public. You elect people with widely unpopular views to leadership positions and then try to limit public voting as much as possible through gerrymandering, voter supression, and legislating via Supreme Court decisions.
