Hoping the Breyer replacement timing helps November turnout.

If the replacement happens in late summer or early fall, maybe that will energize our base leading to November. At least, I hope it does.

Worst case/Best case now on Voting Rights

So with it looking more and more like SineManchin won’t agree to a filibuster carve out, where are we heading for November 2022?

On the bright side, Marc Elias and other lawyers will fight in state courts.
Dems will try to ramp up registration and GOTV efforts.
Any reduction or elimination of abortion rights by SCOTUS will energize our base.

On the negative side, some states new voting rights suppression and vote counting changes are so difficult to overcome that it may not matter how strong our GOTV efforts are.
We might see apathy set in if we start turning on each other over who is to blame.

I don’t know 🤷‍♀️ what to think anymore. I am actually stunned that two “supposed” Senate Democrats might be the ones to bring down our democracy.
Please talk me off of the ledge.
