GOP Fears Trump Is Sabotaging Turnout Of Own Party

The Hill reports:

Polls show that Trump’s attacks have undermined GOP confidence in mail-in voting, which otherwise has overwhelming support among Democrats and independents.

Some Republicans are urging GOP leaders to abandon the attacks on mail-in voting and to instead embrace it, saying that greater access to absentee ballots are a foregone conclusion this year and warning that the president is effectively sabotaging his own party by refusing to buy into that new reality.

The impact could be particularly pronounced in Florida, a battleground state where Republicans have traditionally outpaced Democrats among absentee voters. It’s also the preferred method of voting for many seniors, who broke for Trump in 2016.
