Response to Trumpocalypse (Reply #44)

49. Some people might. You need to put yourself in working parents' shoes.

Some people might not come out, of course not all, but some, and maybe just enough to help Trump win.

I know folks like you and me can't imagine not getting out to vote, especially to get rid of Trump. But think of folks working 2 jobs, with kids to get to school. They hate Trump too, but voting is an ordeal for them because of how hard Republicans have made voting. In some precincts, it involves hours-long waits. That means losing time (and pay) from work, and/or trying to find childcare for your kids while you're standing in line to vote.

Does it really make no sense to you why some of these beleaguered working parents might just pass on the whole voting ordeal?

Don't you get how some might see it as not worth the ordeal to vote if it looks like their party won't make a difference?

If their party had not at least voted to impeach Trump in the House, which is clearly within the majority Democrats' power, don't you think some people might decide to give up and go to their jobs, thinking what's the point of voting if their party can't get stuff done, that nothing will change in their lives whether they vote or not? Don't you think some people might think if Dems can't get an impeachment vote done, what can they do about much more difficult endeavors, like climate change or healthcare?
