US election 2020: The tactics used to suppress and contest the vote

Trump supporters rally outside an early voting booth in Miami, Florida.

In Florida last week, two armed men dressed as security guards stood at a campaign tent outside a voting centre, falsely claiming they had been hired by the Trump campaign to guard the area.

Here are 17 times this has happened so far this year.

The GOP Conspiracy Mentality Will Only Become More Dangerous When They Lose Power | Washington Monthly

Screenshot_2020-10-27 The GOP Conspiracy Mentality Will Only Become More Dangerous When They Lose Power Washington Monthly

One of the more remarkable developments of the last few years has been the conservative movement’s reliance on outlandish conspiracy theories even as they maintain control of most levers of governmental power. It’s deeply unusual in a modern democratic society, but much more typical in totalitarian developing countries. And it bodes very ill for what is likely to happen to the Republican Party after it inevitably loses power.

Trump shows American democracy is in terrible danger

Either victory or an attack on the election: US President Donald Trump.

Trump’s motives could not be more transparent. If he does not win the Electoral College, he’ll muddy the results so that the outcome can be decided only by the Supreme Court or the House of Representatives (where each state delegation gets one vote). Trump has advantages in both right now, which he has boasted about for the past week. I can’t say this any more clearly: Our democracy is in terrible danger — more danger than it has been since the Civil War, more danger than after Pearl Harbor, more danger than during the Cuban missile crisis and more danger than during Watergate.

US Election 2020: Wisconsin, Minnesota, Florida and four other states will choose between Trump or Biden

Joe Biden, left, and Donald Trump.

Polls currently show around 95 per cent of voters say they have already made up their mind about how they will vote in the election. This means the key task for both candidates will not be persuading undecided voters but to ensure their voting coalitions show up to vote en masse. And, most importantly, to ensure that they show up in the states that matter.
