Default Do think Donald Trump should try to delay the 2020 Election

Hi, Donald Trump tweeted today that he wants to delay the 2020 election. He believes he has the constitutional powers to suspend the election.

Do you think he should try to postpone the election if he is able to?

See Ya!

I don't think the election should be delayed, but I understand as to why he proposed it. The election should happen as scheduled, as it would be a big legal mess trying to move the date, when the inauguration should be, and everything would go downhill really fast.

He doesn’t really have the authority to, so no, I don’t think the president should move the date. And there wouldn’t really be a reason to anyway if every state would allow people to vote by mail

I do not think people should be able to vote by mail. There are way too many fraudulent votes that way. I do think the election should be delayed.

I 100% agree that voting by mail is just asking for fraud. But, as I said, it would be a huge mess trying to redo when the election is, when the delegates meet, and when the inauguration happens, and on top of that, if what they decide is constitutional or not. I completely understand why people think it should be pushed back, but it'd be a huge mess.

He doesn’t have the authority to do so, but the lack of funding for the postal service and worries for fraudulent votes are going to absolutely skew this election to hell.

My grand parents dont have a computer, much less an email, and the last thing they need is to be packed in a crowded polling station !

This was an interesting comment from Mr Trump. It even was on the news here. But being outside the political mess of the USA, it even seemed funny in a way. But studying this... it seems that he cannot do that. And even if he could, there is an amendment that ends his term in January, so what would he accomplish?
It is possible that I am completely misunderstanding this issue.

spread polling over a few locations and have it on the normal day.

NY has already proved why mail in ballots don't work, I think NJ had a big issue too

just wait your turn outside if there are too many people in the building, the polling booths by me are social-distance acceptable anyway since there is a curtain surrounding the voter

Hi, Here is what FackCheck's reporting about Donald Trump's claim of vote fraud.

Maybe when he realized, he hasn't the power to shift the election, he quickly came up with banning tiktok from being used in the US. Seems its more likely all about attention he wants to gain. He kinda smells the faith of losing.

Also I suppose it's much more important to him to get the next four seasons of the Trump Show going than to think about a really serious concept for his intended second term.

I did not expect Trump to have a good idea. It does not happen often.

In my country we had an election during the worst time of the COVID epidemic despite all opposition parties really being in favor of postponing it until the health situation improves.
It's a rational thing to do, though I am not sure who decides on that, the president, Congres or the Senate, but yeah, it's ludicrous to have elections in the middle of a pandemic.

The thing is, the president can’t change the election date. Also, he wants to reopen businesses and schools, putting millions of people and children at risk, but doesn’t want to hold an election. Seems kinda sus to me

True. Guess no need to postpone it then because the COVID situation will skyrocket either way.

At the rate we’re going at, yeah pretty much. I have to do an absentee/mail in ballot anyway, but that’s going to be a trip in it of itself due to the postal service being cut

In places where election dates are set in stone by law, they should occur at those times. It's too messy to change them and gives certainty to government's and the people and when they get their say. However, I think Trump makes a fair point. Postal voting does create an elevated risk of manipulation of results. An example of this risk was when Australia (stupidly in my opinion) opted to do a postal vote on allowing same sex marriage. Although the result in this case wasn't compromised given the roughly 2:1 ratio of those in support, there were cases of people able to vote multiple times from stealing other people's papers or simply finding papers in the street that hadn't reached their intended mailbox or simply blew away in the air. Given political elections are much closer, the risk of tampering with the results is elevated. Perhaps a compromise would be to do voting the traditional way, but over a series of days in election week? This would mean the postal voting risk is removed and social distancing maintained. But what would I know? But what would I know?
