It is no new information that Donald Trump has been claiming that the 2020 presidential elections were rigged, but according to reports received Republicans now seem to be turning a deaf ear to what the former president has to say.
“No one’s paying any attention to it,” said Christopher Nicholas, a longtime Republican consultant. Trump’s theory about the 2020 presidential elections has been at the base of mostly all the primaries in which Trump endorsed candidates have been running. Many believe that Trump is going to use the same theory in the General elections that are to be held in November as well.
Many of the Republican leaders are still Trump supporters but are also of the opinion that Trump is not the end all be all of the Republican party. “I think the shine has gone off a bit,” said Jason Shepherd, a former chair of the Republican Party in Georgia’s Cobb County, in the Atlanta suburbs. He believes that even though a party has the support of Trump it has its limitation.
Shephard further said, “are realizing it’s great to have Trump’s endorsement,” but that the former president “is not going to be the end-all and be-all.” John Watson former chair of the Republican Party in Georgia has said that the former president thinks every election is rigged and that even Trump supporters have now come to believe that the baseline of Trump’s campaign is a shtick. “I think there’s always going to be a constituency in the party, at least for the foreseeable future, that thinks that every damn election is rigged. But I think fundamentally, your average, serial primary voter is just smarter than that. I think they just believe it to be a Trump shtick at this point,” said Watson.
