We are witnessing an unprecedented attack on our democracy, fueled by baseless allegations that the 2020 election was stolen from former President Donald Trump. Such claims inspired the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and spawned a sort of dual reality in which Americans view their democracy very differently depending on their party. Meanwhile, many Republican state legislators are pursuing restrictive election laws throughout the country.
