When polls close on the West Coast on Election Day, it is unlikely that well know who won the presidential election. That itself is not uncommon; while we can generally predict that California will give its electoral votes to the Democratic candidate, that doesnt mean that, say, Florida has counted enough of its votes to project the outcome. But this year will be different, as youre no doubt aware. The Coronavirus pandemic is leading to greatly expanded use of absentee ballots, meaning results in some states will take days to tally. Theres little question, barring overwhelming victory for either of the candidates, that President Trump will use those days to call into question any result that erode margins he see on Election Day. Hes repeatedly insisted that there is necessarily something suspect about votes counted after fact, and in Florida in 2018 he repeatedly insisted that counting of absentee ballots in heavily Democratic counties was somehow fraudulent. Earlier this month, Pew Research Center released data from a poll in which it asked voters who they expected to win in November. While Joe Biden leads Trump by eight points in the same poll, voters were about evenly split on who they actually think would win. That is in large part because about 9 in 10 Trump supporters say they believe Trump would win, while only 8 in 10 Biden supporters were as confident. Among Trumps strongest supporters, 97 percent say they expect him to win. That is bolstered by claims that there is a broad range of Trump support in the election that isnt captured in polling. Theres not much evidence that such a group exists to any significant extent, sporadic anecdotes about people lying to pollsters notwithstanding. The idea plays to Trumps ' benefit by being unfalsifiable: You ca detect these supporters because they refuse to be measure. It is also a bit hard to reconcile Trumps ' constant assertions about enthusiasm in his base with his further claim that his base is shy about telling pollsters what it believe. Bidens campaign and other officials will encourage people to be patient, with hundreds of thousands of votes still outstanding. But what will many Trump supporters hear? Theyll hear the apparent loser of the race and his allies in the media rejecting what they know to be true that Trump won in a landslide. Theyll hear that Trumps won again, upending his opponents ' national polling lead! Is being targeted with fraudulent mail ballots. Theyll hear that what Trump say would happen is, in fact happening. What happen next? If recent weeks are any indication, tension may erupt into violence. In 2000, when the contest between George W. Bush and Al Gore was unresolved, nattily dressed group of men stormed a meeting of Miami-Dade ballot-counters in an attempt to interrupt the recount that was underway. Imagine the same scenario playing out in multiple states. Imagine defining characteristic of protesters being not brook Brothers slacks but AR-15s.

The belated dawn

In his victory speech last night, Donald J. Trump paid homage TO forgotten men and women of our country, vowing that they will be forgotten no longer. This essential political idea that vast segment of Nations White citizens have been overlook, or looked down upon has driven every major realignment in American politics since the New Deal. In 1932, at the darkest moment of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt evoke Forgotten man as reason TO rebuild the economy from the bottom up. More than three decades later, after Richard Nixons 1968 victory, journalist Peter Schrag identified Forgotten American White lower middle class voter as key to TO Nation's apparent rejection of Great Society and the New Deal order. In the guise of working class or American yeoman or John Smith, he was once the hero of civic books, man that Andrew Jackson called the bone and sinew of the country, Mr. Schrag write. Now he is a forgotten man, perhaps the most alienated person in America. That this Forgotten American could be used both to uphold and TO dismantle liberalism suggests that this American political identity has never been especially fix: Democrat or Republican, liberal or Conservative, but populist above all. Since the 1960s, phrase has also implied that the country was paying too much attention to the wrong sorts of people, most notably, TO African-Americans at the expense of the white working class. It is no coincidence that forgotten men and women of our country begin their migration into the Republican Party at the very moment that African-Americans were asserting their right TO vote, and voting Democratic, in large numbers for the first time. Mr. Trumps victory will go down as one of the great upsets in United States history, but it is also the product of a long and bitter struggle over RACE and class in this country. Yale sociologist William Graham Sumner is often credited with coining the term Forgotten man. Writing near dawn of the Progressive Era, he laments the lost autonomy of hard-working citizens suddenly forced TO pay for high-flown programs of social reform. Sumners ' most famous political essay, WHAT Social Classes Owe TO Each Other, rejected very idea that government might mitigate class antagonisms by sharing social wealth. WHAT do Social Classes Owe TO Each Other? Not much, in Sumners view. And his Forgotten man Owe least of all. In his 1932 campaign for the presidency, Roosevelt sought TO claim the term for a different and more expansive purpose. These unhappy times call for building of plans that rest upon Forgotten, he said in a radio address from Albany in April 1932, for plans that build from the bottom up and not from the top down, that put their faith once more in Forgotten man at the bottom of the economic pyramid.

Chanting this isnt over! And Stop Steal, supporters of President Donald Trump protest at state capitols across the country Saturday, refusing to accept defeat and echoing Trumps ' unsubstantiated allegations that Democrats won by fraud. From Atlanta and Tallahassee to Austin, Bismarck, Boise and Phoenix, crowds ranging in size from a few dozen to a few thousand, some of them openly carrying guns decry news of Joe Bidens ' victory after more than three suspense-filled days of vote-counting put the Democrat on top. Skirmishes break out in some cities. In Atlanta, outside the state Capitol in longtime Republican stronghold of Georgia, chants of Lock him up! Rang out among an estimated 1 000 Trump supporters. Others chant, this isnt over! This isnt over! And Fake news! Streets were awash with American flags and Trump banners. No immediate violence was report, though at one point, police moved to separate Trump opponents from supporters. Biden holds a slim lead in Georgia, which hasnt go for Democrat since 1992. Jordan Kelley, 29-year-old from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, drove three-plus hours to Atlanta to attend a pro-Trump rally. Theres election fraud is going on here, say Kelley, claiming that voters in Georgia, state with a GOP governor and secretary of state, had improperly counted ballots to put Biden ahead. Even though I live in Tennessee, I am American, and I want to make sure Americans have a voice in the election. He plans to make a 10-hour trip to Washington next week to demonstrate on the steps of the Supreme Court, where Trump and his lawyers have vowed to eventually make his case. Underscoring hard feelings on both sides of the nation's deep political divide, anti-Trump protesters in Washington booed, yelled obscenities, shouting " Loser! Loser! And give finger to Trumps motorcade as the President returns to the White House from a golf outing Saturday. Two signs posted in front of Trumps Washington hotel read Dont be sore Loser and Face Reality. For his part, Biden pled for unity and reconciliation in a televised address Saturday night, saying it is time for Americans to put away harsh rhetoric, lower temperature and stop treating our opponents like enemies. Let this grim era of demonization in America begin to end here and now, he say. Contrary to claims of Trump supporters, there has been no evidence of any serious vote fraud. And some Republican elect officials around the country begin to distance themselves from Trump and urge him to accept the outcome gracefully. Utter rejection of Biden as legitimate President by Trump and his supporters appears to represent something new in American political history, said Barbara Perry, Presidential studies director at University of Virginias Miller Center. We typically have had a leader who lost the presidency who then tells his followers, this is false. This has been Steal from the US, Perry say.
