The number of Democrats who denied Trump's lawful election in Jan 2018 was probably also 70%. Have we forgotten that already? Uncomfortable memory? Meanwhile, in Jan 2002, everybody was behind Dubya in his march to war, even though his election in 2000 was honestly as sketchy as can be.
This narrative that we are living through an unprecedented situation... is false. People are saying that to get more money and power for themselves. That is what people do. Next?
I echo Newark727's comments. Also while many Democrats denied Trump's election, Hillary Clinton conceded, just in the same way while many Democrats denied George W. Bush's election, Al Gore conceded. The concession speech is part of the peaceful transition of power, it helps those who supported the losing candidate continue on and support the government.
I've read that part of the system of democracy, is in lieu of an actual battle, every so often we have a symbolic battle called an election, then we abide by the results of that election. Those who breached the capital on January 6th and those who supported them violated that social contract.
