This is the site where r/The_Donald posters flooded to when their subreddit got banned and most of the comments are against this view. There is the odd comment where someone tries to rationalize this, but they are fewer and more far between than I thought they would be. It is true that you see more radicalization on the internet than you would talking to someone face-to-face, but r/conservative is notorius for banning anyone that disagrees with their sentiments or even posts something that might be supportive towards liberalism. There are people on there stating they would rather vote for a Democrat than have Trump push the election back. That gives me a little bit of hope for America.
Well yeah, because most of them are ultra-traditionalists and Trump was their compromise all along. They only ever liked him due to his "social stances."
Anyone with an opinion worth something should be completely admonishing and demonizing Trump's outspoken support for delaying the election for any reason whatsoever.
We had normal elections during the Civil War, the 1918 Spanish Flu, WWI, WWII, the Cold War, and every other major emergency in the history of the United States. The fact that he is even suggesting that it be delayed for a conspiracy theory that the election will be rigged if voters have to vote by mail or are given every opportunity in order to do so is unacceptable. It doesn't matter if he knows he has the power to do so or not. It is a threat to democracy that he is willing to try and delay the election for his own personal interests.
If he were concerned about all of this he would be proposing funding to help local and state governments make sure that voting is secured and that voting sites are more safe.
His desire to delay the election has nothing to do with mail-in ballots. It has to do with him hoping some miracle happens, turning around the virus, the economy, and the general public feeling about him. There has not been a President this badly in need of an October surprise in a long time.
What was the purpose of him suggesting this? Can you explain it to us?
II answered this earlier in this very thread. The post remains as posted.
You do know Trump can't stop, delay or postpone the election, don't you? Only the stupid shit a diaper over thinking he could.
I want to believe you. I believe in the system, but you must understand the opposition to Trump.
They aren't stupid, and they have deep fear about Trump becoming a Fascist leader
(even though their desire to suppress speech from university campuses to front lawn signs shows clearly who the Fascists are)
The election needs to be on-time and it needs to be fair. I claim "fair" includes mail in ballots. My Mom lived to 94 and for the last 30 years of her life, she was a ward boss for elections. She scrutinized the hell out of every one and every vote. If we can't believe in the people sworn to count the ballots, we become Russia.
I still believe in the distributed nature of the process and the local people, across the country, who verify our elections
