Democrats are not leaving anything to chance this November.
The left is lining up support from every institution in America to defeat Donald Trump.
And Barack Obama let the cat out of the bag on what Democrats planned for Election Day.
Barack Obama is one of the leading voices on the left pushing a universal vote-by-mail scheme that critics in the Republican Party claim puts the security of the election at risk.
“Voting by mail shouldn’t be a partisan issue––especially during a pandemic. Everybody should be able to request an absentee ballot, and make their voice heard in every election,” Obama reported.
Whenever Democrats want to promote an especially risky policy, they usually preface their support by saying this shouldn’t be a partisan issue, but instead is an “American issue.”
That is exactly the tact Obama took with universal mail-in voting.
The fake news media claims there are no issues with mail-in voting and that studies show it doesn’t benefit either party.
Critics contend that Democrats are not in the business of helping Republicans win elections and that if mail-in voting really did put Republicans on equal footing with Democrats, then Democrats wouldn’t support it.
And contrary to the media claims, there is a partisan bent to mail-in voting because there are issues.
A National Public Radio announcement found 65,000 ballots in state primaries across the country were disqualified because they arrived after Election Day.
Democrats immediately filed legal challenges to count those ballots despite not arriving on time.
“Democrats and voter advocacy groups have filed suits in at least 10 states, challenging laws that require mail-in ballots to be received by or before Election Day. They’re asking judges to allow ballots to be accepted as long as they are postmarked by Election Day, because of difficulties voters might encounter due to the pandemic and delayed mail delivery,” NPR reported.
While the votes represented just one percent of votes cast by mail in the primaries in a close election, this could prove decisive.
In 2016, Donald Trump won the White House by just 77,000 votes across Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
If the 2020 election is once again a close race, it could take weeks to count all the mail-in votes and for the two parties to litigate in court over which ballots should be counted and which are disqualified.
Such a scenario would tank the stock market, lead to uncertainty around the legitimacy of the election and leave the loser feeling like they were robbed.
Democrats don’t care about any of that.
They care about winning.
And they think universal mail-in voting makes it more likely they will win the election.
