We read, correctly, that the country is being torn apart by hyperpartisan politics, by the invasion of the 국회 의사당 지난주, by the summer’s urban riots, and by the second impeachment of President Trump. While these matters preoccupy citizens concerned about the future of their republic, as they should, bear in mind a less emotive truism about democracy: All political battles must end with voter turnout.
에 대한 낸시 펠로시, getting out the vote defines reality. From that vantage, the House speaker would have no trouble interpreting the key events in America’s recent political history.
에 2016, Donald Trump defeated 힐러리 클린턴 because the Democrats lost count of the votes in Pennsylvania, 미시간 및 위스콘신. Then-Minority Leader Pelosi would have seen that Mr. 지우다, however personally anathema, turned out nearly 63 백만 표. Conclusion: Next time, produce more turnout than Mr. 지우다.
