Hack responsible for partisan election review in Wisconsin admits he doesn’t know how elections work

Hack responsible for partisan election review in Wisconsin admits he doesn’t know how elections work

The first was Arizona, which allowed the Cyber ​​Ninjas, a team with no audit experience, to — oh, wow, this can't be true, can it? - to carry out an audit. You know, because they were convinced that the historically unpopular man who bragged about passing a dementia test and isn't smart enough to work as an assistant Glory Hole clerk somewhere in the contiguous United States couldn't possibly have lost an election. And now? Correct. Now Wisconsin is ready to shit itself in public too. And you won't believe what the man they...

Unpopularity Of Kamala Harris Presents Real Threat To Democrats In Coming Elections

Recent polling indicates that Kamala Harris is popular among Democrats and that’s pretty much it. Republicans don’t like her and neither do independent voters. Don’t forget, Harris was so unpopular during the 2020 Democratic primary that she dropped out before the first vote in Iowa. It doesn’t look like much has changed.

These ballot measures will shape voting rights—and whether elections are fair—for years to come

These ballot measures will shape voting rights—and whether elections are fair—for years to come

Gerrymandering and Redistricting Reform Missouri, New Jersey, and Virginia are all voting on measures that affect redistricting. In Missouri, Republicans placed a misleading amendment on the ballot that would effectively gut a reform that voters overwhelmingly passed in 2018 to make legislative redistricting fairer, trying to trick voters into repealing the reform by attaching token ethics reforms. In New Jersey, Democrats have put an amendment on the ballot to delay legislative redistricting until the 2023 elections if the release of census data is delayed. The move is intended to protect incumbents from having to...
