All the media handwringing about Donald Trump subverting the vote is proving to be noise….
The American government on so many levels is BIGGER and Stronger than Donald J. Trump…..
Still counting the votes. But here’s the good news: In the midst of a pandemic, harsh partisan polarization, the biggest turnout in more than a century (in percentage terms) or ever (in raw numbers), and persistent hostility from the president, the U.S. has pulled off what certainly appears to be a well-run, free and fair election.
Kudos to all the state and local officials who appear to have done an excellent job, and to the thousands of men and women who served as poll workers and who counted (or are still counting) the votes. More than 48 hours after the polls closed, I don’t think I’ve heard a single serious complaint about election administration against either Democratic or Republican elected officials. Yes, I’m aware of the evidence-free accusations from President Donald Trump and his allies, but those are actually signs that things have been well-run: If Trump had evidence of real problems or misconduct, he’d be parading it in front of the cameras — and, more important, in front of judges. That hasn’t happened….
