A majority of Republicans are living in a fantasy world built around the Big Lie

In order to have a functioning democracy in America, we need to have the two major political parties willing to agree on a basic set of facts — starting with who won the 2020 election.
According to a new national poll from Reuters/Ipsos, we don’t have that. Consider these data points:
* Fully 53% of Republicans in the poll said that Donald Trump was the “true” president while 47% said Joe Biden, who is the actual president.

* Another 56% of Republicans say that the results of the 2020 election were “the result of illegal voting or election rigging.”

* More than 6 in 10 GOPers either “strongly” (39%) or “somewhat” (22%) agreed with the statement that the 2020 election “was stolen from Donald Trump.”

Those numbers are remarkable. Scary. Depressing.
