But it goes deeper than Trump. Trump is simply jumping on the Republican bandwagon of suppressing votes, by perpetuating the lie that voter fraud is prevalent and mail-in voting contributes to it. 

I agree

Speaking of the ridiculous voting situation in Wisconsin what are everyone’s thoughts about how these primaries should be done and for that matter, the federal election in November.

It should be 100% mail-in voting, across the country, with the option to vote in person but people encouraged to stay home and fill out their ballots.

Only if the rules for non signed and non matching signatures on mail in ballots are followed.  We might get final results a couple of weeks later.  Imagine the "hanging chad" fiasco multiplied by fifty.

I don't like mail-in voting. My MIL literally tried to steal my ballot because she knows I don't vote. I saw her leaving my house with it. I took it and tore it up. I was almost a non-consenting MAGA

I'm not sure how it should be done, but I understand the hesitancy to allow the federal government to call a national emergency to delay an election.

Wouldn’t that make it even harder for the ones who struggle with opportunities to vote?

It is one of the claims when when arguments are made about how hard it is for people to vote.

I don't get what you are saying. Is it easier for some people to vote in person, than it is to vote by mail?

I think it is fine, that is how I vote.  I just know when I have suggested that folks who have had difficulty voting should do it by mail, that idea is rejected.

I mean whether it's easier or not is irrelevant at this point. It's simply the safest way to vote.

If a better idea comes about then by all means. 

We will be in full Mad Max mode if we are still under lockdown by November

I don't know if we'll still be in "lockdown" but I can't imagine tens of thousands of people showing up to vote in person being a good idea.

We should have plenty of masks by then

I'm actually surprised Calolfornia isn't making a big push right now to "educate" people to be on the mail in ballot for November.  Seems the ideal time to do it when people are stuck at home and shouldn't be mingling with other people and the governors and mayors are putting the fear of God into everyone that this might continue for months.  They have been pushing for mail in balloting for years.  Looking at 2018 data, looks like 67% and 65% of all ballots cast were mail in ballots, which actually is surprising to me that it's so high.

Trump is a socialist so this makes sense to reach out to Bernie supporters. But I’m confused, I thought #kag, #maga or some other lame ass slogan was to avoid things like socialism?
