Wisconsin wasn’t a debacle
This week, experts admitted what’s been apparent for weeks, there was no spike in coronavirus cases in Wisconsin due to in-person voting.
The message that in-person elections are safe when appropriately executed has to be hammered home and repeated because the media is hell-bent on ignoring reality to drive fear and unnecessary changes ahead of November.
In an age of disinformation and media manipulation, the only way to overcome the noise is to repeat the message.
Take, for instance, the sound practice of Voter ID. In Texas, when the law was being debated, the media boosted the false talking point that the policy would disenfranchise voters.
