"Now scuttles across social media. Our American ideal is still at risk Democracy or o'clock. Chrissy ruled by the mob. Mark Strassmann. CBS NEWS Atlanta We're joined now by our resident presidential historian John Dickerson. Good morning. Thank you for coming in. Morning, Margaret. Great to be with you. You know, it was just two weeks ago Gallup poll said that Donald Trump Most popular man in America. And now we're talking about calls for his resignation, inciting an insurrection. I mean, does all of this and when he leaves office? You know, the president's son and son in law said that it's no longer the Republican Party. It's Donald Trump's party. So I think of your question in two ways. What happened to Donald Trump and what happens to the political market? He created that future Republican politicians are going to try to appeal to After the election of president said the election was stolen. Republican lawmakers knew that was a lie. They knew there was a cost to that lie. But because of the political market Donald Trump had created. What Donald Trump said was true was true, and those lawmakers worried about blowback. So instead of a healthy political market, where facts Reason and tradition. Operate. This is a market where fax for whatever you wanted to be. Persuasion didn't matter. Demonization mattered, so that fills up a rally crowd right? Politically. It cost Republicans the presidency, the house and the Senate governing Wise, the founders told us this was a terrible way to work where you have the standard for the presidency. To be just what the rally crowd likes. The standard should be the one Mitt Romney said. Which is sometimes you honor your voters by telling them the truth. So what standard Survived. Is their reflection about the choices that were made Somebody stand up now against lies. Or does the market that Donald Trump created exist? And if that's the case, then this insurrection was just an inconvenience. And that market exists, and Donald Trump will have a big role in that in the future. There's still fear of that market. Absolute fear. Absolutely, even after I mean, perhaps even more given what happened on the 6th January Well, Brandt because Republicans have seen the muscles that can be flexed Exactly when it comes to me something extraordinary things we we heard and we saw this week. You know, the president has yes, he told people to go home. But then he said, we love you. Your Patriots. He has not come out and said anything about the chance calling for his vice president to be executed. John, You're exactly right, Marie. This to me. Was there a lot of ways in which the president contributed to what happened on the sixth. But the example of what he was willing to trample in order to get his way is clearest in the grotesque treatment of his vice president. He, he says loyalty is the most important thing. No one has been more loyal to this president than Mike Pants. He has wagered his entire reputation defending the president. How is he repaid? The president said he could stop the count in Congress. He knew that to be alive. When Mike Pence didn't do that, because he couldn't do it. The president said he lacked courage. He put a target on the back of his vice president. And what happened as sure as night follows. Day, those those writers said, Hang Mike Pence. Hang Mike Pence. What gave them the idea that Mike Pence had done anything worthy of a hanging? Well, the president of the United States told them that the person who Mike Pence was loyal, that's pretty low and he tweeted blasting Mike Pence while the siege was happening. And yet we haven't heard a separation from the president mean how do you put the genie back in the bottle? At this point? You don't think you do put the genie back in the bottle, because that political market is still operating that I was talking about. People are still fearful. And you know, we still have some number of days to go in which a lot of this free food floating anger is still out there. The president still saying the election was stolen And that gives energy to that free floating anger. All right, well, he doesn't have a social media platform on which to propagate that now, which is why there's only so much more focused on if and when he finally speaks to us, we know He's planning a speech tomorrow on again Tuesday to make some public remarks, but I mean, it's hard to find any kind of silver lining. A to the end of this week. Um, but there are those who I certainly noticed how diplomats that I follow. We're trying to explain this to the rest of the world as they watch our beacon of democracy. Look pretty dim this week. Have you found any hope here? Well, when the U. S Capitol is a crime scene, it's pretty hard to find hope. That hope is the power to be optimistic when times look desperate, and there was already a test of democracy before January, 6 it was to hold an election, the middle of a pandemic and what happened? Country. Republicans and Democrats turned out in record numbers. People stood like there was no violence, and the state's changed all their voting procedures to accommodate this, and it succeeded, and they did recounts and they were challenged, and those local officials did. What is the central attributes of character? They did what they were supposed to do. They didn't do the easy or political thing. Pressure pressure pressure. They didn't they kept the faith. Then who else kept the faith? All the local officials in those states, then the courts. All of these challenges came people with a political interests, nevertheless did what their job told them to do not what was politically expedient.

We know the vote count is Certainly continuing. What can you tell us about that And when might we hear more results? Still Good morning, Mark. Yeah, The big question, of course, is the unkind of votes. How many there are left and state elections, officials say about 65,000. Most of them are in metro Atlanta and most of those areas of lean Democrat. So all things being equal, you would expect both Democratic candidates. In these races to pad their leads. As the morning goes on, Andre Question of that point becomes, okay right now, Um, Asaf is narrowly. I had, um Does he have Willie have enough of the lead If he ends up winning? Will we have enough of the lead to win by more than one half of 1%? Because under one half of 1% The loser can kind of demand a recount. And of course, you know, here we go again, right? I mean, nobody really wants to go through that, but but those of the big unanswered questions here, so I think in the next few hours Answer your question. I think in like two hours, we're gonna get a much better sense of where we are and whether the whether either Republican has as any shot at all of making up the gap that now stares them down.

Hey, so we did very well with them. Hey, did very well with young voters. He also did well in the Atlanta suburbs, metro Atlanta, Um 60% of George's overall vote. Um, you know, there's a bit of a message here that the president wore out his welcome in the suburbs of Atlanta. And what happened to George It could be a cautionary tale for Other red states that are still embracing the president and his oppression. Hard to say, But it's certainly a question that Republicans here and elsewhere are asking themselves us. Off is a 33 year old Um A 33 year old guy. Smart, very ambitious. Um, he and Warnock essentially rent as a team here, just as the Republicans ran in the team. And in the end one team one and one team lost. Andre that czar wanting is apparently lost on that. That's that's where we are right now. Mark. Thank you so much. We'll be checking back with you. As developments continue to unfold in Georgia that is CBS senior national correspondent Mark Strausman in Atlanta Sports on the way 10 44 When would be great. If Holmes came.
