The Republican Plan To Subvert U.S. Democracy


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with David Daley about how the U.S. democracy is in shambles.

Tens of millions of Americans are casting their ballots through various means including mail-in voting and early in-person voting, eager to have their say in the most important election of our lifetimes. But the GOP, seeing the enthusiasm among Democrats in particular, are readying a political fight that is part of what our guest calls “the Republican Plot for Permanent Minority Rule.”
