Voters See Each Other as America’s Enemy
Tuesday, December 01, 2020
U.S. voters now regard each other as a bigger enemy than Russia or North Korea and just as dangerous as China.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 24% of Likely U.S. Voters think Biden voters are America’s biggest enemy as 2020 draws to a close. The same number (24%) see China as enemy number one.
Nearly as many (22%) regard Trump voters as the biggest enemy, while 10% view Russia and seven percent (7%) North Korea as the largest threat to the United States. Eleven percent (11%) are more wary of something else. …
A deeper dive finds that 37% of Republicans feel Biden voters are the biggest enemy, just edging the 34% who feel that way about China. Thirty-five percent (35%) of Democrats think Trump voters are the biggest threat, far and above the danger posed by all the others.
Voters not affiliated with either major party rate China, Biden voters and Trump voters all equal as threats.
- Wisconsin Supreme Court refused to hear election dispute by 4-3. Referred to lower court.
- Georgia recount confirmed Biden by similar tiny margin.
- Kelly v Pennsylvania explained in Notes 54 and comment is still not on SCOTUS docket. Presumably today’s conference of Full Court will decide how to handle it. Pennsyvania Supreme Court won’t and has issued order refusing stay of its lifting of injunction imposed by lower court preventing completion of Pennsylvania election to decide what to do about likely unconstitutionality of postal voting.
- Trump made important 45′ video on election rigging – mainly re postal voting. Speech and media reaction likely to significantly increase hostilities. No mention of Kelly v Pennsylvania. But if, as I expect, SCOTUS does prevent completion of Pennsylvania election pending hearing it will be widely seen as support for Trump’s claims of rigged election, assisted by media reaction to it.

Some (partisan) background on overall conflict over postal voting:
- Michigan legislature oversight committee is holding video hearings of “non-existant” evidence from Giuliani’s witnesses to fraud. Some flaky, some convincing. 5 hours of video.
It looks to me highly likely that the numbers of voters who consider each other to be the biggest enemy of their country will continue to increase.
Conditions still ideal for populist demagogue building right wing mass based party.
Worth taking the time to understand what is happening.
