Top Republican: Overturning Biden’s win would be ‘death spiral’ of US democracy

Top Republican Mitch McConnell warns American democracy would enter a “death spiral” if Joe Biden’s win was overturned.

“This election, actually, was not unusually close,” McConnell says. “The Electoral College margin is almost identical to what it was in 2016… If this election were overturned by mere allegations from the losing side, our democracy would enter a death spiral.”
