Michelle Goldberg: How Republicans could steal the 2024 election [View all]

Erica Newland serves as counsel for Protect Democracy, a nonprofit organization founded in 2017 to fight democratic breakdown in America.

Before Joe Biden’s victory was officially confirmed in January, she researched some of the ways that Donald Trump’s allies in Congress might sabotage the process. She came to a harrowing conclusion.

“It occurred to me,” she told her colleagues then, “as I dug into the rules and watched what happened, that if the current Republican Party controls both Houses of Congress on Jan. 6, 2025, there’s no way if a Democrat is legitimately elected they will get certified as the president-elect.”

New York Times Columnist Michelle Goldberg:

"With enough procedural mischief, politicians representing a minority of the country could hand the presidency to a candidate who got a minority of both the popular and Electoral College votes."

"The Republican electorate, believing that Democratic victories are by their nature illegitimate, demands that everything possible be done to subvert them."

"Republicans are showing us exactly what they expect of their officials."
