- Eye Opening
As the 2020 election approaches, President Donald Trump continues to stress his skepticism of the electoral process. Any result that doesn’t favor him, he suggests, is rigged. The coronavirus pandemic plays into this storyline with potentially disastrous results, journalist Barton Gellman reports. Republican voters share Trump’s disdain for social distancing and are likely to vote in person on November 3. Democrats will largely vote by mail. That sets the stage for a chaotic period after November 3 if Trump and his supporters try to claim victory prematurely.
