It's only fair. Corona ate his homework.

Not gonna happen. States run presidential elections and they even did that in the middle of a Civil War (the 1864 election). Trump is gonna be stopped, and he can do nothing about it.

It seems that your OP messed up the code.

The mail-in vote thing is a legitimate concern. I would never want to mail in a vote for anything, ever.

It really isn't a legitimate concern at all.

Who cares? It's not like it's gonna get delayed anyway. Like Trump or not, stop worrying about this kind of BS. America will decide on Election Day, so if you hate Trump than get out and vote.

So Trump is demanding a thing that the Constitution does not permit based on an entirely baseless concern.

Someone ask him if he's fine with President Pelosi, since that's where this path will lead.

You don't know the mail in voting process then.

Also I take it it's totally a coincidence that he's screaming about delaying the election right after it's been announced that his STRONGEST ECONOMY is now in the worst contraction in decades.

Tell Trump he’s full of shit and continue on with the election as planned.

Trump routinely does a lot of illegal things, it probably isn't wise to assume that he wouldn't be able to do this illegal thing because it would be illegal.

He keeps saying the reason is that postal vote fraud is a big problem. Is it? On the basis of what evidence?

I hate to be that guy, but as an amateur politico, this thread title is extremely inaccurate. He claimed/proposed it, but he can't actually do anything. Congress sets the times for these elections, for one, and for two, the 20th Amendment requires the terms end in January, and if the Presidential Term expires he just makes Nancy Pelosi acting President anyway. In short, no, this isn't possible. The senate GOP will just act like they didn't see it and it'll fade from the headlines in favor of coronavirus information within a 24-48 hours.

Hm. It would be very easy to do mail in ballots. Very easy. I have a sickening feeling he's gonna call a state of emergency soon and become a dictator.

None, of course.

Well, mail in votes have been used by like >1/2 the states for years now and there hasn't been any issue, so no, it's not a legitimate concern.

Mail-in voting happens every election, they're called Absentee ballots. And someone in Utah or Oregon correct me if I'm wrong, but it's completely safe and secure.

It really isn't a legitimate concern at all.

ballots are already conveniently misplaced all the time
just imagine the amount of fraud that would take place if your vote was only as secure as your mailbox
