Sixty-one percent of all voters — but just 21 percent of Republicans — say Biden did win legitimately. And even for the half of Republicans who say they prioritize the GOP generally over allegiance to Trump, his high approval remains unmoved by recent events. Among Republicans who say their primary loyalty is to Trump over the party, 98 percent approve of his performance. (Those findings, however, contrast with a recent Pew poll showing Trump’s job rating declining among Republicans.) An additional 9 percent say Trump is "not as good as most."

Before the election, more than 80 percent of likely voters were somewhat or very concerned about election-related violence, according to a UMass Poll. It remains to be seen whether we will remember that surreal day as the end of an ugly episode in our history or an early skirmish in a prolonged period of political violence. As our evidence of partisan dehumanization has accumulated, we have grown increasingly concerned about its implications for our democracy and society. We found that both types of messages, when coming from Biden, significantly reduced endorsements of partisan dehumanization and violence, even among Republicans. Every American has the power to calm their fellow citizens, simply by speaking out against dehumanization and violence.

“It’s striking,” said Ralph Richard Banks, a law professor at Stanford who has written about race, gender and family patterns. Ms. Harris, the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants, was raised with both Christian and Hindu practices, while her husband, who is white, grew up attending Jewish summer camp. (At their wedding, Ms. Harris took part in the Jewish ritual of smashing a glass.) Ms. Harris did not have children. She has often said that being “Momala” to her stepchildren is the role “that means the most” to her.

President-elect Biden's actions this past week underscore that he understands his opportunity and is in a hurry to achieve it. So how has President Trump been helpful to President-elect Biden's ambitions, particularly with his actions of the past days? They are even more keen now, having seen the dangers to American democracy in such stark relief, to embrace President-elect Biden. "President Biden is facing not only an economic crisis but also a political crisis, a cultural crisis, a public-health crisis and an epistemological one," said historian Jon Meacham in The Wall Street Journal. Biden faces vast challenges, but Donald Trump through his actions of the past days inadvertently made the President-elect's job easier.

Meena Harris, niece of Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, has written her second children's book, entitled "Ambitious Women." 'It's not just the work of women to do on behalf of other women,' Harris saidRaising ambitious women starts earlier than one might expect, which is why Harris decided to put the topic in a children's book. It's actually a line I put into my new book 'Ambitious Girl.' This is a lesson that needs to be taught, not just to young women, but to everyone, she said. Because creating an environment that can foster ambitious women is not something left up to women to create.

Goldman Sachs nudges U.S. growth forecast higher on Biden stimulus plan

REUTERS/Tom Brenner(Reuters) - Analysts at Goldman Sachs Group raised their U.S. growth forecast for the second time this month on expectations that President-elect Joe Biden’s fiscal stimulus plan will hasten the economy’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The bank expects economic growth of 6.6% in 2021, compared with a previous forecast of 6.4%, according to a report published on Saturday. It also raised forecasts for how much stimulus the new administration will be able to push through in the near-term, to $1.1 trillion from $750 billion. Biden outlined a $1.9 trillion stimulus package proposal on Thursday, saying bold investment was needed to jump-start the economy and accelerate the distribution of vaccines to bring the coronavirus under control. “Larger boosts to disposable income and government spending imply stronger growth later in the year,” the bank’s analysts wrote.

Michigan, Virginia, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Washington were among more than a dozen states that activated their National Guards to strengthen security. Meanwhile, downtown Washington, D.C., was virtually empty, with streets near the Capitol closed and battalions of camouflaged National Guard soldiers taking up positions across the city center. It was signed by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson, House Oversight Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler. In Michigan, a fence was erected around the Capitol in Lansing, and troopers were mobilized from across the state to bolster security. A tearful Beeler later told the Washington Post he had been working security in Washington all week and pulled up to the checkpoint after getting lost.

The public may also never know how the Biden inaugural committee spends any surplus cash it generates. The secrecy in Biden's inaugural spending also coincides with separate and ongoing civil and criminal court cases involving President Donald Trump's 2017 inauguration spending. Already, Biden's inauguration committee has voluntarily released the identities — if not the donation dates, full addresses, and contribution amounts — of its donors through early January. Biden's inaugural committee is funding five day's worth of programs, including musical performances, celebrity appearances, speeches, and the like.

In the wake of the SolarWinds attack, dedicated cybersecurity funding was a necessary step, one expert said, especially as COVID vaccine efforts will collect massive amounts of Americans' personal data. On Thursday night, the Biden-Harris administration released plans for a nearly $2 trillion spending package for pandemic relief and economic recovery. Hidden at the very bottom of the plan, the new administration allocated more than $10 billion to various IT modernization and cybersecurity initiatives. Experts say it's another sign of President-elect Biden's technology focus, especially when it comes to cybersecurity and updating IT at federal agencies. $9 billion — the biggest chunk of the dedicated tech spend — is for expanding the Technology Modernization Fund's cybersecurity and IT services.
