Despite Warnings, Many State Capitols See Only Small Protests And Quiet Streets

In Denver, the Colorado Capitol’s lower windows were covered in anticipation of possible unrest — but hardly anyone showed up on Sunday. „I’m really surprised. I figured there’d be more than this,“ a supporter of President Trump told Colorado Public Radio.

In Lansing, where protesters swarmed Michigan’s Capitol building last May and a plot against the governor was uncovered in recent months, Sunday’s protest was deemed „eclectic, but small and dull“ by Michigan Radio. Events remained quiet, despite some demonstrators bringing their guns to the protest.
