Come November, Trump Must Be Trounced

Because Republicans may have good reason to believe they can tweak a slim Trump loss into a fat Trump win…

  • This is regardless of whether or not Trump is leading by a little on Election Night, but his lead is chipped away as mail-in ballots are counted, and the President cries foul and “voter fraud!”
  • This is regardless of whether Joe Biden might win the popular vote by even more than Hillary Clinton did. Which is very possible. Though we never like going down this path because that’s just not the rules.

  • By throwing people off voter rolls in record number if they haven’t voted in an election or two. The Supreme Court also made this a lot easier to do in 2018. Also a 5–4 decision. Federal law bans states from purging registered voters from voting rolls simply because they didn’t vote. So Republicans in Ohio tried out a loophole: if someone doesn’t vote, instead of getting thrown off the rolls, they get a letter in the mail, and if they don’t respond to that, they’re off. In that way they’re technically not getting thrown off for not voting, they’re getting thrown off for not responding to a letter in the mail. Justice Alito wrote: “Ohio removes the registrants at issue on a permissible ground”. And that the National Voter Registration Act “specifically allows states to remove a voter who has ‘failed to respond to a notice’”.
  • By putting a lot of the burden for mail-in voting on county governments, which may not have the funding, technology or personnel to adequately prepare for the onslaught expected this year.
  • By passing new, restrictive voter ID laws, which are often inconsistent and hard to follow and usually at least make it somewhat difficult for people without a driver’s license to vote, which again most strongly impacts people who live in major cities who are more likely not to drive, and they tend to more likely be Democrats. Some states have different requirements for voter registration and voter ID, again which make things more difficult especially for non-drivers.
