During what has often been a full-out assault on American democracy by the extreme right—which has become a disturbingly large segment of the population—the judiciary has actually held up pretty well. Donald Trump failed miserably in his legal challenges to the 2020 presidential election, with even judges he appointed consistently ruling against him. (How dare they!) Those accused of participating in, planning, or provoking the January 6, 2021 insurrection have been convicted and many given lengthy terms in prison. Efforts in the courts to derail the investigations into the roles that Trump and his minions played in both these events and the plot to nullify the election results have been rebuffed.
No, it will come down to whether people in key states are engaged enough to vote. The only way to unseat a desperate minority is with an equally desperate majority. We have the means...we just need the will.
I guess we’ll see. But it might really come down to your last sentence. Thank you.
