This week: some Republicans step forward, but many don't; how the Biden administration and the media impact the health of the Republic; where the GOP is headed; a look ahead to impeachment; and initial polling on the new president.
It really is a new day in America, but much work remains to be done. Ian & Patrick discuss what President Biden means by "unity," the outlook for the Senate, a preview of impeachment, and a look at the underlying authoritarian inclinations that continue to threaten the Republic. Plus some hot takes on highlights from the inauguration ceremonies.
This week marked a turning point. The band-aid over what ails the Republic has been ripped off. Will Mitt Romney and company stand up to Josh Hawley's sedition caucus? Will the Biden administration tackle the racial justice issues at the core of our national divide? And what does the Georgia run-off say about the years ahead?
Ian and Patrick take a look at members of Congress signing onto seditious claims of election fraud and potential signs for hope in how Joe Biden will run his administration. Plus some thoughts on the vital role certain state officials have played in guarding the Republic.
We look at new polling on the deep divide in our country and the challenges facing the Republic this week, including efforts to undermine the election results and how Biden should handle calls to investigate Trump. Also, the need for civics education and a proposal to name the Covid vaccine.
It's now up to the American Voter to guard the Republic! Patrick and Ian break down the polls, from the big picture to individual states, and look at the potential for authoritarian backlash if things don't go the way Trump supporters expect.
In this episode, Ian & Patrick grade the final presidential debate, take a look at polls in key states, ask whether the Supreme Court nomination marks a point of no return for the Republic, and wonder why Trump is a fan of The Village People.
