More of Trump's unintended consequences

Trump has been making all kinds of unsubstantiated claims (those of us not in the Regressive movement call them lies) about the propensity of vote by mail fraud. While Democratic voters are requesting.....and returning... mail in ballots in record numbers, the Republicans in Michigan held a ballot application burning.  In Virginia, 118,000 voters applied for absentee ballots for Democratic primaries June 23, while only 59,000 voters did so for the Republican primary.  In short, Trump's message is being received as "Don't vote by mail" only by Republicans. So, when election day rolls around, a sudden turn of events — such as an economic collapse or a surge in coronavirus infections — is less likely to dampen turnout. But the Dems will have already voted.  

 

“It’s very concerning for Republicans,” said a top party operative, who like several others interviewed spoke on the condition of anonymity to avoid drawing Trump’s ire. “I guarantee our Republican Senate candidates are having it drilled into them that they cannot accept this. They have to have sophisticated mail programs. If we don’t adapt, we won’t win.”
