"In the sixty-four days between November 3 and January 6, President Donald Trump and his allies fought to reverse the outcome of the vote. Focusing on six states--Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin-- Trump's supporters claimed widespread voter fraud. It was not a well-orchestrated matter. There was no guiding genius pulling the strings in key states for the defeated Donald Trump. In the weeks after the election, in counties and precincts all over the country, many local Republican officials and even Trump's own campaign workers washed their hands of his increasingly unhinged allegations of fraud. But there was no shortage of people willing to take up the fight. Urged on by Trump and his coterie of advocates, lawyers, and media propagandists, true believers turned on their colleagues, friends, and neighbors-- even those in their own party--to accuse them of rigging the election. The real story of the insurrection began months before Trump's mob attacked the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. That riot was the desperate final act, emblematic of the clumsy, failed movement Trump had been building for years. It began in cities and small towns all over America on election day, November 3, 2020. Working with a team of researchers and reporters, Bowden and Teague uncover never-before-told accounts from the election officials fighting to do their jobs amid outlandish claims and threats to themselves, their colleagues, and their families. The Steal is an engaging, in-depth report on what happened during those crucial nine weeks and a portrait of the heroic individuals who did their duty and stood firm against the unprecedented, sustained attack on our election system to ensure that every legal vote was counted and the will of the people prevailed."--Provided by publisher.… (mer)

This book is a warning about the dangers facing democracy in the USA. Trump's attempt to overthrow the 2020 election was only stopped by election workers, many who were Republicans who took their oaths to serve honestly to heart and the many judges, some Republicans, who refused to ignore the law and threw out the many challenges that Trump lawyers brought to their courtrooms.

It is heartbreaking to read of honest, dedicated election workers, many again Republican by party affiliation who were threaten, ridiculed and abused in some cases to the point their health was put in jeopardy. In some instances, they faced threats of injury or death and had to go into hiding all because Trump had convinced some of his followers that he had been cheated out of winning the election.

There are extensive notes at the end of the book if one wishes to follow the thread and confirm what the authors have explained. One note is telling in that it explains how TV cameras were allowed at Trump rallies if they signed an agreement not to move their view from the main speaker to the audience. Then Trump would exclaim that the media never showed the crowds at his "full capacity" rallies and then he would extol the cameras to show the crowd which they could not do since they had sign an agreement not to move. Trump would then accuse the media of not showing the truth about his large rallies.

It is remarkable how many people believe the election was stolen even when presented with much evidence, some of which they had provided themselves, that this was not the case. ( )
