Just 25 congressional Republicans acknowledge Biden's win, Washington Post survey finds

Just 25 congressional Republicans acknowledge Joe Biden’s win over President Trump a month after the former vice president’s clear victory of more than 7 million votes nationally and a convincing electoral-vote margin that exactly matched Trump’s 2016 tally.

Two Republicans consider Trump the winner despite all evidence showing otherwise. And another 222 GOP members of the House and Senate — nearly 90 percent of all Republicans serving in Congress — will simply not say who won the election.

Those are the findings of a Washington Post survey of all 249 Republicans in the House and Senate that began the morning after Trump posted a 46-minute video Wednesday evening in which he wrongly claimed he had defeated Biden and leveled wild and unsubstantiated allegations of “corrupt forces” who stole the outcome from the sitting president.


A chart shows how Republicans answered three questions in a survey about President-elect Joe Biden's election victory and President Trump's false claims of victory.


A team of 25 Post reporters contacted aides for every Republican by email and phone asking three basic questions — who won the presidential contest, do you support or oppose Trump’s continuing efforts to claim victory and if Biden wins a majority in the electoral college, will you accept him as the legitimately elected president — and also researched public statements made by the GOP lawmakers in recent weeks to determine their stance on Biden’s win.

5. I prefer a "cluster" of Republicans

There's a double entendre there regarding their competence on the job as well as their penchant for spreading coronavirus.

7. It's time to stop coddling these fucksticks.

If you can't acknowledge a critical, basic tenant of our Constitution and democracy, then you surely can't affirm an oath to "Defend" that Constitution.

They shouldn't be seated in the House!
