Yes, and the Trump supporters keep telling us that not allowing them to challenge the electoral vote would be like disenfranchising the 74 million people who voted for Trump. Well, what about the 81 million people who voted for Biden? Is it OK to disenfranchise them?

If you were able to vote, you weren't disenfranchised. Only those who were legally eligible to vote but who were not allowed to vote, these are the people who were disenfranchised.

But the Trump people are right in that millions in this country were disenfranchised in this last election, and in virtually every election held in this country in the last 150 years, but it's not who they claim it was. No, the people being disenfranchised in this country are being done so for one reason and one reason only, because they tend to vote for Democrats. And more than one prominent Republican has admitted, mostly in private, but occasionally they slip-up and say it in public as well, that if everyone was allowed to vote who are legally eligible to vote, that the Republican Party would be reduced to the status of a permanent minority party with also very few nationally or state-wide elected officials. It's only through the use of extreme Gerrymandering that they are able to keep control over state houses or to send Representatives to Congress, therefore they must do what they can to either stop people from voting or to make sure that those who don't vote for Republicans, that their votes are nullified or at least made to count less than those who vote for Republicans.
