At least 140 Republicans of the House are expected to object to the results of the electoral college and vote against Joe Biden’s victory.
CNN’s Jake Tapper tweeted:
Two House Republicans tell me that as of now they expect at least 140 Republican House Representatives to object and vote against the Electoral College results on Jan. 6, which indicate that President-elect won Biden

House Republicans are more concerned about a primary challenge posed by any of Trump’s servants in 2022 than about protecting the integrity of the U.S. election. The ballot game will fail spectacularly, but it’s not about overthrowing the election and keeping Trump in power.
The Republicans of the House have become completely convinced that the man behind the curtain is the powerful Trump, not a little failed president whose power will fade once he loses the tools and platform of the highest office in the country.
The behavior of these House Republicans is un-American. The United States now has a two-party political system in which one of the parties is openly against democracy and seeks to destroy it.
Congressional Republicans will not suddenly behave and see the light after Trump is gone. Republicans will remain a threat to democracy that must be defeated if there is the same urgency that voters showed in the election of Joe Biden.
