How Trustworthy Are American Elections? Elliot Ackerman Joins the Discussion on Restoring Faith in The Electoral Process

Next week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer plans to send a new voting rights bill to the Senate Floor. It is the latest attempt to “fix” the American electoral process, and it raises questions about what is exactly wrong, what can be done to improve faith in election results, and who wins and who loses from changing the way we vote. One thing we do know is that a lot of Americans don't trust election results. A Gallup poll from 2020 shows that only forty percent of Americans say they are confident in the honesty of US elections. Only one-third of Republican voters believe that the 2020 presidential election was “free and fair,” and after the 2016 contest, 28 percent of Democrats expressed skepticism that the votes had been counted accurately. So how bad is it? Are elections truly untrustworthy or is this a perception problem borne of political opportunism – where if you don't like the results, you attack the referee? RealClearPolitics co-founder and president Tom Bevan, senior elections analyst Sean Trende, and Elliot Ackerman, author of “2034: A Novel of the Next Word War,” co-written with Admiral James Stavridis, join Andrew Walworth on today's RealClearPolitics Takeaway podcast.

Today on Sojourner Truth: Voting rights campaigners have been frustrated by a lack of action by Congress to restore voter rights, which have been undermined since the 2013 Supreme Court decision that stripped the historic Voting Rights Act won during the Civil Rights Era. Civil Rights leaders have been pressuring President Biden and Congressional Democrats to take urgent action. This, as voter suppression laws are spreading across the United States. The most recent law, a very restrictive one, passed in Texas. In an effort to get something done, Democrats have cut a deal with Blue Dog Democrats (Conservative Democrats), including Joe Manchin. On Tuesday, September 14, eight Senate Democrats joined Manchin to put forth a new voting rights bill named the Freedom to Vote Act. To give reaction to what is happening in this historic fight for voting rights, we speak with voting rights campaigner Barbara Arnwine.

In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by John Kiriakou, Sputnik News correspondent to discuss the legacy of the post-9/11 torture program and its absence from the conversations surrounding the anniversary of the attacks, how popular media such as “24” have propagandized torture and the connections between the surveillance state and the entertainment industry, and the expansion of surveillance and Islamophobia in the post-9/11 world.In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Dominic Moulden, DC community organizer and Right to Resources Committee Member with ONE DC to discuss the ties between the violence of the state, the war economy, and the displacement of Black and brown communities, how spending on militarization contributed to the gentrification of Washington, DC and the displacement of longtime Black residents, and the importance of working and poor people organizing against the violence of capitalism at home and abroad.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by technologist Chris Garaffa, the editor of TechforthePeople.org to discuss Facebook's camera glasses and the privacy concerns that accompany them, tech companies vying for contracts with ICE for a tool which collects information on undocumented workers in the US, and Facebook's lack of transparency in misinformation research.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Stacey Hopkins, Activist, Organizer, and political strategist to discuss the watered down voting rights bill in the Senate and the Democrats acquiescence to Republicans, the moralization and culture wars waged by agents of the capitalist system to deflect from capitalism's responsibility for the harm it causes to people, and the diversion that was the MET Gala and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's dress.

In todays episode, Chris shares an anecdote about a run in with a hornet in his house this morning as an instruction on how Dems need to play their hand. He hits on the idea that playing nice will not get it done when it comes to Democrats getting their dual infrastructure plans passed, as the window is closing for action before the midterms.Not to mention the hill to die on in Chris' estimation: getting the Freedom to Vote Act passed, like, yesterday.The opposition of Senator Manchin and Senator Sinema to the $3.5 trillion reconciliation is a problem for Dems they need to figure out and fix. Voters will not forgive them for "Manchinema's" blockage, they will see it as a failure of the whole party.And Another Thing: Chris takes a beat on tennis star Novak Djokovic being able to play at the U.S. Open despite saying no to the vaccine. Contrasted with Naomi Osaka's pile on over protecting her own mental health, Chris shines a light on this selective outrage.

Youth Vote Power Young people wield a lot of power when they vote. A whopping 73% of youth who were registered to vote by NextGen turned out to vote. This type of turnout can change the outcome of an election. Because voting is a habit, investing in youth leads to long-lasting change in the electorate. Letting young people know the power they have can make a tremendous difference. Voting Rights and Immigrants The current battle over immigrants is not just about immigration. It is also about race, power, and voting. Purging naturalized citizens, preventing DACA recipients from becoming citizens, and undercounting in the US census are all efforts to enact racist policies and to suppress votes. Keep the Door Open When Cristina first organized undocumented workers in Texas, she was met with hostility from pro-labor unions. Over time, they realized the work she was doing benefited everyone, and are now her allies. Leaving the door open for others to change their mind and work with you is a valuable tool that can yield positive results. FIND OUT MORE: Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez is a civil rights leader and former 2020 U.S. Senate candidate. She has spent the last twenty years taking on some of the most powerful special interests in her home state of Texas, organizing construction workers, immigrant mothers and young voters to build a government and economy that works for all of us. Today, Cristina is the Executive Director of NextGen America, the nation's largest youth voting rights organization. NextGen has registered and mobilized millions of young people to the polls, with the goal of harnessing the power of young people to reshape the political outcomes of our country – not for an election cycle but a generation. Previously, Cristina founded two of Texas' largest voting and civil rights organizations. She founded Jolt, a statewide organization focused on mobilizing the Latino vote, when she was six-months pregnant and in the wake of the 2016 election. Under her leadership, Jolt mobilized tens of thousands of young Latinos and developed some of the nation's most creative strategies to engage young Latinos, like #Poderquince that supports young quinceañeras to use their sweet 15 birthdays as a platform to register and mobilize Latino voters.
