cratic Congress again that the first bill he’d pursue is … a radical pro-abortion law.
In short, democracy is not on the ballot, and not even Democrats are acting like it is. That doesn’t mean that the “Stop the Steal” candidates don’t present potential problems, or that election denial as such isn’t corrosive. But Democrats are fooling themselves if they think they’d accept a clear Trump victory in 2024 as legitimate any more than they did in 2016.
If there were a literal referendum on democracy, it’d pass handily. As it is, though, no one is going to be convinced to vote for down-the-line Bidensupporting progressives, with all their fevered obsessions, because hypocritical, self- interested partisans say it’s what we owe to our republic.
