The guy and his family have recently done it….
A LOT of other Republican ‘s also…
But when Donald Trump says something to his flowers?
Could his doubts actually hurt him and Republicans around the country’s voting numbers come November 3rd?
GOP strategists around the country are concerned that President Trump’s vocal opposition to mail-in voting is resonating with Republicans, imperiling years-long efforts by the party to sign people up to vote by mail.
Expanded mail-in voting has become a pillar of modern political campaigns, enabling both Democrats and Republicans to secure millions of votes days or weeks before Election Day. Once voters are crossed off target lists, campaigns can narrow their focus to those who have not yet voted, conserving precious time and money in the closing days of an election.
“Whether we like it or not, increased vote-by-mail is going to be a reality this fall,” said Phil Cox, a former head of the Republican Governors Association. “Successful campaigns will need an integrated mail-in ballot strategy that blends messaging, modeling, and targeting. Anything short of that will be conceding votes.”
But Trump has wrongly claimed that mail-in voting opens elections to potential widespread fraud — even though he himself has voted by mail.
“Mail-In Voting, unless changed by the courts, will lead to the most CORRUPT ELECTION in our Nation’s History! #RIGGEDELECTION,” Trump tweeted Tuesday.
The president has never offered proof that mail-in voting leads to fraud. A commission Trump established in 2017 to hunt for voter fraud, led by Vice President Pence and former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), quietly folded after finding no proof.
But now it appears Republican voters are listening to Trump’s attacks. A Pew Research Center poll conducted last month found 83 percent of Democrats said voters should be allowed to vote early or by absentee without an excuse — compared to just 44 percent of Republican voters who said the same.
More than half of Republican respondents, 55 percent, said voters should only be allowed to vote early or by absentee if they had a documented reason for not participating in person on Election Day…..
