Experts predict coronavirus will linger for at least two years until a mass-produced vaccine is available worldwide. This reality will impact the November election turnout as the President and the GOP wants voters to go to the polls and reject a mail-in ballot process.
April Ryan speaks with Cornell Belcher, political analyst, pollster, and president of Brilliant Corners Strategies about the logistical, structural, and organizational challenges in creating a mail-in ballot system hampered by impediments from Republicans. The NAACP and Congressional Black Caucus call President Trump’s demand voters risk their health to cast ballots in-person a new form of voter suppression.
There are amazingly stark difference in how Republicans feel about #coronavirus vs. Dems & Ind. Post poll: Dems (36%) & Ind (34%) almost twice as Very Worried than GOP (19%). Thus the differences in how Dem vs GOP leaders respond to outbreak shouldn’t be that surprising
