Response to “What Now of the Authoritarian Threat”

A terrific essay, as usual, from Laura, and her first for The Constitutionalist. She revisits the question of how to describe Trump’s anti-constitutional behavior and its potential consequences for the future.

She paints a sobering picture — one that may be even more fraught than she imagines. In her telling the Biden win was decisive. It was. More than 8 million votes nationally and a solid Electoral College lead.

But it also was closer than his win over Clinton in 2016. Very close. With just a shift of less than 30 thousand votes in Georgia, Arizona and Wisconsin, Trump would have been reelected.
