Where was the outrage back then from those 71 million civically illiterate supporters?

Speaking of partisan problems. This valuable piece of genuine democracy legislation was waylaid by Mitch McConnell and his republican cohorts going back to its passage in 2019.

Now post-Trump, these partisan villains have to come out into the spotlight and be accountable because the big distraction in the White House is gone.

Where was the outrage back then from those 71 million civically illiterate supporters?

Majority of US Voters Across Political Spectrum Back Landmark Pro-Democracy Reform Bill: Poll

“Originally passed by the House of Representatives in 2019 but torpedoed by the Republican-controlled Senate, the For the People Act (pdf) would expand voting rights including for former felons, curtail partisan gerrymandering, strengthen ethics rules, limit money in politics and implement the DISCLOSE Act, and make Washington, D.C. a state—among other reforms.

The new survey, conducted by the left-leaning think tank Data for Progress and the advocacy group Equal Citizens, found a majority of self-described Democrats, Republicans, and independents support the For the People Act. Respondents were given the following information:

The For the People Act has been introduced in Congress. Supporters of the bill say it would limit the influence of big money in politics by empowering small donors, make voting easier and more secure, end gerrymandering, and give the public more information about who is lobbying our government. Opponents say it would be an overreach by the federal government and that states should control their own elections. Do you support or oppose the For The People Act? “
