“The 2018 midterm elections will test whether resistance to President Trump and anger over his policies can turn out enough progressive voters to buck both the orchestrated assault on voting rights and historic midterm election voting trends. From partisan and illegal gerrymandering to onerous voter ID laws to the absurd Presidential Commission on Election Integrity, the Trump administration and red state lawmakers are working on many fronts to prevent and dissuade large numbers of eligible voters from exercising their most fundamental constitutional right. The target of these efforts (single women, Millennials, and minorities) are the three groups of Americans most at risk of disenfranchisement and the most likely to support progressive causes and candidates — but only if robust registration efforts reach them.” (09/13/17)
