Lawrence O’Donnell postulated on MSNBC Tuesday night that 53% of Republicans in a new poll failed ““a basic mental competency test question” because they think Donald Trump is the rightful president.

I mean, these people are delusional, but they’ve also gotten very dangerous to the people of Texas, and I think to the people of this county.”
O’Donnell and Castro discussed the topic in light of a new voting rights law in Texas designed to protect voters’ rights and prevent fraud.
“It’s very much a naked power grab,”Castro said of the law, adding that “a lot of Republican White males are trying to hang on to power.”
