Chart of the Day: “Election Deniers” The New McCarthyism

Contact Your Elected Officials

It has become apparent that Red Wave in the 2022 midterms was hardly even a ripple. The question now becomes, for many, is, was it election fraud or simply the voter’s decision? Many in the mainstream media have already positioned the populous to become evil “Election Deniers” if you even think election integrity is an issue.

This was exemplified in a recent Axios poll. Nearly four out of 10 Republicans and one in four Democrats say they’ll blame election fraud if their party doesn’t win control of Congress in November, in the latest wave of the Axios-Ipsos Two Americas Index. A month out from the 2022 midterms, Axios was pushing the idea of a “2020’s Big Lie” being alive and morphing into a broader distrust of institutions and elections that threatens to become entrenched. See this in the chart below and learn more here.

The gaslighting of America goes into hyperdrive at Fivethirtyeight. They have a nice slick website that identifies and calls out the “Election Deniers.” Read the rather bizarre language used to describe these “Election Deniers” that were on the ballot for the 2022 midterms. OMG – 60 percent of Americans will have an election denier on the ballot this fall – see below their classifications of “Election Deniers.”

  • There are a lot of election deniers on the ballot. Out of 552 total Republican nominees running for office, we found 199 who FULLY DENIED the legitimacy of the 2020 election. These candidates either clearly stated that the election was stolen from Trump or took legal action to overturn the results, such as voting not to certify election results or joining lawsuits that sought to overturn the election.
  • Moreover, an additional 61 candidates RAISED QUESTIONS around the results of the 2020 election. These candidates haven’t gone so far as to say explicitly that the election was stolen or take legal action to overturn it. However, they haven’t said the election was legitimate either. In fact, they have raised doubts about potential fraud.
  • There were 121 candidates whose positions on the 2020 election we could not determine. They either had NO COMMENT on the 2020 election or AVOIDED ANSWERING when asked directly.
  • But not all Republicans running embrace Trump’s claims. A total of 78 have FULLY ACCEPTED the results of the 2020 election while another 93 have ACCEPTED WITH RESERVATIONS, meaning they think President Biden won, but still raised concerns about the integrity of the election.

The language used by Fivethirtyeight is almost comical, except we have been down this path before. Remember in history when we were looking for communists behind every bush back in the 1950s? Check out the video below.

What is to be made out of the fact that when the standard of what it is to be an “Election Denier” is applied – it includes both political parties?

But what about election integrity? Check out Tucker’s video that calls into question the entire voting process over the last few years.

Rasmussen surveyed voters on the day of the 2022 Midterms about election integrity. Most voters believe vote-by-mail makes it “easier” to cheat in elections and have lingering fears about the integrity of U.S. elections. When asked if voting by mail, which many states now allow, makes it easier or more difficult to cheat in U.S. elections, 52 percent agreed that it makes it “easier” to do so — a sentiment held by 70 percent of Republicans, 45 percent of independents, and 41 percent of Democrats. 

A dramatic change in the way the nation votes has occurred. States have engaged in an unprecedented degree of “innovation” around mail-in ballots, absentee ballots, and early voting. See this dramatic change in the chart below and learn more here.

A dramatic change in any process will have issues – to think new voting processes don’t have issues as well would be folly. The Right Wire Report did a little Twitter investigation to see if the GOP is addressing the Republican voter concerns to ensure election integrity. Or are the GOP leaders going to throw the “Election Deniers” to the wolves out of fear of the New McCarthyism?

We looked at the Twitter feeds of a few high-profile Republicans. These included: Sen. RubioGov. AbbottGov. DeSantisGov. NoemSenate GOP Leader McConnelHouse GOP Leader McCarthyGov. Sarah Huckabee, and Kari Lake (Gov. Candidate). Check out the total Tweets vs. election integrity Tweets (from 2022-11-09 to 2022-11-15) in the chart below. Except for Lake, the number of election integrity Tweets from the other high-profile Republicans was zero.
