Should Republicans Object On January 6 - Wednesday 60 Minute Poll


On January 6 a joint session of Congress will meet to certify the electoral votes from the 50 states. Vice President Pence Mike would co-preside over the session The 12th Amendment mandates that “the President of the Senate shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall be counted.” Congressional rules require a House member and senator simultaneously challenge a state’s electoral slate if there are any questions about a state's outcome which is why some states are sending a slate of Democrat and Republican electors. If there is a House and Senate member appealing a state’s slate of electors, the Joint Session of Congress is dissolved and the House and Senate meet separately for two hours to debate a contested state’s electoral vote. Each body then votes whether to accept or reject that state’s slate of electoral votes. If they are rejected there are a series of steps that must be followed which some Republicans believe could give Trump the Presidency again.
