Trump Will Win Re-Election Over Post Office’s Dead Body
All that stands between Trump and full-on authoritarianism is us.
Donald Trump has declared voting by mail fraudulent and corrupt. He has no evidence, but he doesn't need proof when he has “instinct," and his instincts say he's just a one-term nightmare but only if people can actually vote. Republicans might've wished he wasn't so “old man yells at cloud" about it, but they have longopposed anything that makes voting easier. When turnout is high, they lose elections, so they prefer to keep turnout low. It's simple voter suppression arithmetic.
Laurence H. Tribe, Jennifer Taub, and Joshua A. Geltzer break down for The Atlantic what they call Trump's “three-pronged attack" against free and fair elections. The first step is slowing down mail service while simultaneously casting doubt on the legitimacy of voting by mail, which Washington, Oregon, and Colorado have done for years now without incident.
