If Republicans truly believed this was a center-right nation, and that they had the support of the populace, they’d be working hard to make sure everyone voted. They’d be fighting hard for universal voter registration, and work to open up polls for longer periods of time, or even transition entirely to vote-by-mail. But they don’t believe any of that. They know they are a minority, and a shrinking one, and the only way to retain any modicum of power is to keep as many people from voting. Democratic base groups help them out by failing to turn out in mid-term elections, and it’s a propensity they are more than happy to encourage.
Republicans have lost the American people. Every vote they work to suppress confirms that.
