The past few weeks after the election has been an emotional roller coaster for our country. On Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020 The United States of America held its election for the 46th U.S. President. After days of counting ballots and awaiting the results, the country made its decision. Former Vice President Joe Biden would become the projected 46th U.S. President. As expected, there were some who would disagree with the results. Republicans, mostly supporters of President Trump, began to question the integrity of the election. According to a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, at least 70 percent of Republicans disagree with the overall results of the election.
From various news media companies to business corporations, many joined the social media platform Twitter in congratulating President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris on winning. Previous polls showed, before the election, only about 35 percent of Republicans had faith in the election process. As for Democrats, over 90 percent believed the election was fair. Questions about the election stem from President Trump calling for a recount of the results to which he accused the Democratic Party of voting fraud. While no evidence has been found per the Department of Homeland Security, President Trump and his legal team have begun to pursue legal action in swing states.
Republicans have expressed distrust in many of the swing states as results were given just days after the initial election. Pennsylvania, one of the biggest battleground states in the election race, was the biggest challenge President Trump faced in a bid to win. 60 percent of Republicans said the Pennsylvania ballots would be biased in favor of Joe Biden. There was also distrust among other states, including Nevada (54 percent), Georgia (54 percent), and Arizona (52 percent). In the days after the election, the Trump team has filed lawsuits in states like Pennsylvania, Nevada, Georgia, and Michigan.
President Trump has continued to express distrust in the election process. Since November 4th, Trump has continued to tweet unverifiable information and his opinions to the world in hopes of having others join his cause. A few elected officials, mostly Republicans, have yet to congratulate Joe Biden and thinks President Trump will overturn the election. Over the weekend, Trump supporters took to the streets as a protest to the election in a “Million MAGA March”.
