A poll of Greene’s constituents found 4 percent of voters didn’t plan on casting a ballot in the 2022 midterms, according to the Georgia representative. While Greene’s been a vocal critic of the handling of the 2020 election and is pushing for a full audit of Georgia’s results, she told constituents that if 4 percent of them had stayed home in 2018, Georgia would currently have a Democratic governor.
“Voices online that are telling you not to vote are doing the Democrats’ dirty work. Stop listening to grifters telling you not to vote,” Greene posted on Twitter. “We must root out the fraud, but we also have to VOTE.”
While Greene shared in Trump’s frustration about the ruling, she said on Monday that Republicans needed to “flood the polls” in 2022 to keep Democrats from winning “by default.” She also continued to advocate for auditing the 2020 election, prosecuting “the fraud” and ending widespread mail-in ballots.
So who is the grifter doing the “Democrats’ dirty work” and basically working to sabotage the midterms by telling Republicans they should stay home rather than vote? Well…
Days earlier, former President Donald Trump said Republicans wouldn’t vote in the midterms or the 2024 presidential election if the “election fraud isn’t solved.” He called it the “single most important thing for Republicans to do” and denied that he’s failed to provide evidence that he’s the rightful winner of the election.
Trump’s statement came hours after a Georgia judge dismissed a lawsuit alleging fraud in the 2020 election. Plaintiffs sought a review of more than 100,000 votes, but the judge denied they properly alleged a particularized injury and thereby ruled they lacked standing to claim their constitutional rights were violated.
The former president called the case’s dismissal a “disgrace” to America and claimed “nobody” wanted to do anything about the country’s “corrupt” elections.
Meanwhile, the Trump camp continues the grift:
Members of Donald Trump’s mailing list have been asked to contribute $45 each to “solve the election fraud of 2020,” despite no evidence of mass voter fraud.
Team Trump’s pleas for funds on Sunday evening came only days after the former president insisted Republicans “will not be voting” in the 2022 midterm and 2024 general elections until the supposed voter fraud is “solved.”
A message sent on behalf of Trump told supporters “we need at least $45 from EACH Patriot reading this email” in order to “defend our elections from the lying Left and WIN BIG in 2022 and then again in 2024.”
It would be nice if this guy no longer mattered, and that there was no longer the possibility that he could legitimately win (how ironic) a presidential election and get his hands back on the levers of power, but it can’t be ruled out:
Two-thirds of Republican voters say they want former President Donald Trump to run for president in 2024, according to a new Morning Consult/Politico poll.
…Overall, the survey found that Trump remains the GOP front-runner by a wide margin, with support from 47 percent of the party’s electorate — roughly in line with the 50 percent support he secured in an average of four other 2024 presidential primary polls conducted since he lost to Biden in November.
The survey also tested the strength of Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Florida Sen. Rick Scott and South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, all of whom received backing from at most 1 percent of Republican voters.
P.S. Good news, not every Republican will fall in line if Trump runs in 2024:
Bill Cassidy is 1 of 7 GOP senators who voted to convict Trump before he left office.@mikeallen: After that, Louisiana's Republican Party censured you.
Cassidy: I slept very well that night.
Allen: It's clear you ain't votin' for [Trump if he runs again].
Cassidy: I'm not. pic.twitter.com/tUcF3pAvCR
