ABC News anchor promptly fact-checked after suggesting only Republicans question election results

While discussing the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol and the prevalence of political violence, conservative commentator Sarah Isgur was forced to remind Stephanopoulos that one must look no further than 2016 for another example of one political party questioning election results and engaging in violence in Washington, D.C.

In response to a new Washington Post-University of Maryland poll that discovered 1 in 3 Americans believe violence against the government can be justified, Stephanopoulos framed the issue as one unique to the Republican Party by noting only the GOP breakdown from the poll.

But Isgur, a staff writer at the Dispatch and an ABC News contributor, quickly fact-checked Stephanopoulos.

"When I look forward to 2024, I'm deeply concerned by these numbers because what it says to me is that people on both sides are not ready to accept the results of the next election," she said.
