Mr. Hanna, 19, was an election worker in his rural community not far from Mr. Biden’s native Scranton and cannot accept that Mr. Biden won honestly.
“We were crowded, we had over 250 people in line,” he said, confidently adding that there were few Biden supporters. “It’s mind-boggling to believe that we go to bed and wake up 800,000 votes ahead. After those magical ballots are dumped overnight, we kind of lose.”
Such disinformation, which has become widespread, has been debunked by election analysts who explain that mail-in ballots counted more slowly over several days, greatly benefiting Mr Biden after the president made its use toxic to his supporters.
Robert Fuller of Georgia was so angry with the election that he foresaw an America would push off its deepest berths. “We’ll be lucky if we have another country after that,” he said, citing false claims of electoral fraud that the president argued over the weekend during a taped call to Georgia’s top electoral officer, a Republican.
“I foresee a civil war, Republicans versus Democrats,” Fuller said. “You know as well as I do that you put the ballots in the states of Georgia, Nevada, Arizona, and Michigan.”
In Tuesday’s Georgia Senate runoff election, 65-year-old Fuller supported Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, who both lost. The winners – Rev. Raphael Warnock, who will be the first black Senator from Georgia, and Jon Ossoff, who will be the youngest member of the Senate – secured control of the Democratic Chamber.
Mr. Fuller believes none of the winners are legitimate. Not because they didn’t win the most votes, but because of their political views, which were caricatured on the far left of the center during the race.
