Our new book is titled Divided We Stand: The 2020 Elections and American Politics. Among other things, it discusses state and congressional elections. It also discusses the state of the parties. The state of the GOP is not good.
GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik, who is poised to become the next House GOP conference chair, said on Thursday that she "fully" supports a controversial Republican-led effort in Arizona to cast doubt on President Joe Biden's victory there, arguing that "we want to be able to fix and strengthen our election security and election integrity," a move that aligns the New York Republican closely with former President Donald Trump's baseless effort to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the 2020 election.
Stefanik has rapidly won support, including from Trump and the top two House GOP leaders, to quickly replace Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney as the No. 3 in the leadership --- after Cheney has warned about Trump's lies that the 2020 election was stolen and said that such rhetoric is dangerous to democracy.
There was no evidence of widespread voter fraud or systemic issues in the 2020 election.
