Vote by mail opposition might be a fiasco for the Republicans.LeftieBiker wrote: ↑Sat Jul 11, 2020 11:46 pmThere will be a titanic struggle this Fall between the Republicans - minus a few who care about their constituents - and the Democrats, to implement ballot by mail where it isn't already in place. If The Republicans succeed in blocking it in enough places, Trump stands a modest chance of winning and the Senate will likely stay under Republican control. If they fail, and voting by mail is possible for virtually everyone, then not only is Trump out, but the Senate will be under Democratic control. This is the elephant in the room, for now.
I know many Democratic voters that say they will crawl over broken glass and past dead bodies to vote this year. Trump might be loved by a few, but is hated by more.
Trump canceled (OK, officially postponed) his New Hampshire rally due to very likely lack of attendance (OK, officially due to weather. Was a tropical depression kinda sorta near by, and was a small chance of showers or thunderstorms).
Tulsa was only 1/3 full. Probably infected at least multiple hundreds, perhaps thousands. At a death rate of 1%, that's 10's of people Trump killed at minimum, perhaps hundreds.
So the Republicans block vote by mail. Democratic votes will mask up and get in line. Republican voters?
Republicans have an enthusiasm gap. A lot of them don't want to go to listen to Trump anymore, he can deny the risk of coronavirus and death, but the voters are not listening. Will they vote for him, if it involves risk and waiting in line for hours? Maybe not.
