For the past several weeks, Republican nominee Donald Trump has been calling on his supporters to watch the polling stations on Election Day in order to stop any potential voter fraud from occurring.
Democrats have predictably howled over this proposal, claiming that it was racist and constituted “voter intimidation.”
But on Monday, the Supreme Court sided against Democrats by refusing to ban people from watching the polling stations, Newsmax reported.
The case in question concerned Trump supporters monitoring polling stations in Ohio, which Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg pointed out already had laws in the books preventing voter intimidation.
A federal judge in Cleveland had issued a temporary restraining order last week that prevented anyone, regardless of political affiliation, from “voter intimidation,” but a federal appeals court threw out the order on the grounds that it violated the First Amendment.
The Supreme Court also explained that there was no actual evidence of voter intimidation occurring during the days of early voting.
There is a big difference between intimidation and keeping a watchful eye. If Democrats didn’t have anything to hide, they wouldn’t be protesting so vigorously against having people monitor polling stations. If Democrats are so concerned about intimidation, they are welcome to have their own observers at the pols.
All Trump supporters want to do is make sure this election is carried out freely and fairly.
This may be the most important election of our lifetime, so all measures should be taken to ensure that there is no widespread fraud occurring around the country.
It is unfortunate that people are needed to make sure nothing funky happens on Election Day, but that is the world we now live in.
