Try to Disrupt the Bond Between Conservatism and Whiteness Then Republicans will Flourish

Here’s my realization about the reading I had about the current status of republicans over the upcoming US election. The Democrats are the ones who piously declare voting rights. Republicans respond by purging voting lists, creating complicated ID specifications, barring former felons, decreasing voting times, and more. President Trump has been refreshingly candid on how his party has been affected by high turnouts.

But just think for a minute. The many challenges to voting tilt elections to the most intense partisans, winning candidates by throwing red meat at them. A wider electorate would push the true faithful to reach out on the sidelines to lukewarm neighbors lingering. Reform-minded Republicans should look for ways to draft new voters rather than merely signing up for Biden or badmouthing the president.
