(Politicizd) -- In the course of the last year, the authenticity of the 2020 election has been highly controversial. Staunch supporters of the former President, Donald J. Trump, insist the election was stolen from them.
However, following 63 separate lawsuits pertaining the election results, no evidence of fraud was found to be present. To the contrary, the lawsuits confirmed the GOP's worst nightmare, that the election was fair, and successful in garnering the public's preference for the Presidency. And thus, Joe Biden, was to be formally inaugurated the following January, in 2021.
Consequently, outrage emerged among Biden's biggest supporters, that the Trump ticket was failing to properly allow a presidential transition. Trump defiantly ignited these flames, by furthering the fraud conspiracy, to a global stage, and forcing conservatives into two groups; those who accepted President Biden, and those who didn't.
"This is going to escalate dramatically. This is a very dangerous moment in our history...The fact that our country is being stolen. A coup is taking place in front of our eyes, and the public can't take this anymore."
(Trump on December 11th, 2021 -- one month after Biden declared victory)
As a result, the public consensus eventually grouped all conservatives with the theory, hurting the important conservative movements at hand. In fact, it ultimately lost the Georgia Senate Runoffs last January, and dangerously aided the storming of the capitol, a dark day for the country.
Shockingly though, as the conservative republicans brace for what should be a more favorable 2022 election season, the movement faces an uphill battle, fighting the demons of the election fraud conspiracy.
According to a poll from CBS News, only about 20 percent of Independents felt that there was widespread voter fraud. Meanwhile, 70 percent of Republicans felt that the election was unfair or filled with rampant voter fraud.
Thus, the disparity is evident and concerning, considering the need for more independent to vote Republican.
In one instance, Republican Dan Crenshaw of Texas, stood up to the conspiracy, issuing a stern response to a rather determined heckler.
“Don’t kid yourself into believing that’s why we lost … 5 different states? Hundreds of thousands of votes? You’re kidding yourself.”

The exchange went viral, with many, including conservative commentator Ben Shapiro applauding the Texas congressman for his courage.
The Clip Below from @therecount on Twitter:
Some conservative critics immediately called the congressman out labeling him a "RINO", a Republican in-name only, or a "Never Trumper". These insinuations that a Trump supporter, a conservative or a republican, must embrace the voter fraud myth, is widely dangerous for the party.
A party built with good ideas, can be easily undermined but its conspiracies and radical ideas. For the Republicans, their policies on crime, immigration and taxes, are incredibly popular and are responsible for the party's continued success nationwide. But, to the contrary, its policies regarding the previous election, and its even callous refusal to reject the conspiracies around it, could be devastating.
Further stated, as the next election cycle rolls around, all eyes will be on GOP candidates and if they will refute or accept the 2020 election results. For Dan Crenshaw, Ben Shapiro and other conservative superstars, the results have been accepted and endorsed, in an attempt to re-gain the respect of independent voters across the country.
