But Collins still feels unsettled that “our country seems to be really divided right now in a way I have not seen before.”

She said part of it is that many people are unwilling to accept the results of the Nov. 8 election that put Trump in the presidency, a natural consequence of a tight contest in which nearly 3 million more votes went to his opponent than he racked up.

Wow, not too bright there, Susan - your party treated Obama like shit for 8 years. How do these people find their way into office - how do they even find their offices, for that matter.
