Here's the thing, they are using these exaggerated threats about that ability in order to suppress the vote.

"It’s unlikely that Trump will steal the election. But unlikely doesn’t mean impossible." - @zackbeauchamp


"Trump’s focus on mail-in ballots is pernicious, and intentional. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, many, many more Americans are planning to cast their ballots by mail. And polls have shown that Democrats are likelier to vote by mail than Republicans."

#WhenWeAllVote, #WeWillWin.

"The general sense among experts on American politics is that the nightmare scenarios ... are only plausible if the election is close, and even then, they remain unlikely."

"Unless there’s a catastrophic failure on Election Day...then the election only goes into overtime if the election is close enough to litigate in a state...essential to the Electoral College outcome. That’s unlikely if the polls are even close to accurate," - @rickhasen

Bottom line: The theft depends upon a close election and then upon hundreds of individual plots to bear fruit.

#DropOffYourBallot if vote-by-mail.

#MakeAPlan to vote on #ElectionDay or to #VoteEarly.

This take is not uncommon, but it's a rhetorical pearl formed around a white supremacist grain of sand.

Within this notion is the assumption that the democrats are failing to convince people.

This is a fallacy and a fundamental misunderstanding of the dynamics at work.

It requires that a number of facts be dismissed or diminished.

First, it is predicated on the idea that there's a "war of ideas". Ironically, it's an internalization of a neoliberal cold war and war on terror framing, albeit applied to neo-Marxist political thinking.

There is no failing on the part of the American left in delivering and gaining support for our core beliefs and propositions.

Instead, the assumption that Republicans, and "bystander" lefties and independents process politics in this way is a strategic error. They don't.

We all need to debunk the myth that Republicans are better for the economy.

It's utterly false.

They are only better for the "economy of billionaires' wallets".

Democrats are better on #Jobs

Last 5 presidential terms:
Democrats: 37.3 million jobs
Republicans: 25.2 million jobs

[Carter, Clinton, & Obama vs. Reagan, Bush Sr., & Bush Jr.]

(not even counting Trump's -4.7 million jobs that'd make it 20.5)…

The answer to whether Trump keeps his promise is a resounding NO.

Let's run down the promises:
1) 🚫Build a Wall and Make Mexico Pay for It
2) ✅Appoint Conservative Judges
3) 🚫Repeal and Replace the Affordable Care Act
4) ⁉️Cutting Taxes
5) ⁉️Renegotiate Trade Deals

1)🚫Build a Wall and Make Mexico Pay for It

16mi of new barriers built.

Only 1/6th (317mi total, 301mi rebuilt or reinforced) of the border had a fence or wall built or rebuilt.

2)✅Appoint Conservative Judges

This was a big reason "sane" Republicans voted for a nutjob like Trump.

They also knew Trump just had to rubber stamp the activist "legislate from the bench" thinktank and lobbying group, The Federalist Society and Mitch would do the rest.
