Sounds like the government's getting ready for the Russians, but don't tell Trump about it.
In the months before Kirstjen Nielsen was forced to resign, she tried to focus the White House on one of her highest priorities as homeland security secretary: preparing for new and different Russian forms of interference in the 2020 election.

President Trump’s chief of staff told her not to bring it up in front of the president.

Ms. Nielsen left the Department of Homeland Security early this month after a tumultuous 16-month tenure and tensions with the White House. Officials said she had become increasingly concerned about Russia’s continued activity in the United States during and after the 2018 midterm elections — ranging from its search for new techniques to divide Americans using social media, to experiments by hackers, to rerouting internet traffic and infiltrating power grids.

But in a meeting this year, Mick Mulvaney, the White House chief of staff, made it clear that Mr. Trump still equated any public discussion of malign Russian election activity with questions about the legitimacy of his victory. According to one senior administration official, Mr. Mulvaney said it “wasn’t a great subject and should be kept below his level.”

Biden’s approach is in stark contrast to that of other leading Democratic candidates, who are advertising ways that they can steamroll or make end runs around Republicans rather than cooperate with them. Kamala Harris is looking at executive actions, Elizabeth Warren is threatening to end the filibuster and Bernie Sanders hopes to use arcane parliamentary maneuvers to jam "Medicare for All" through budget reconciliation.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell led the GOP blockade against Obama’s entire agenda while in the Senate minority. And in the majority, he’s sidelined Democrats as he’s sought to repeal the Affordable Care Act, cut taxes and confirm conservative judges under Trump.

Warren chuckled when asked about Biden’s view of the Republican Party.

“I will not support a world where there’s one set of rules when the Republicans are in power and a different set of rules when the Democrats have the majority,” she said on Tuesday.

I think unwitting coordination is gonna be tougher to pull off this time. People are catching on.

How to Avoid Accidentally Becoming a Russian Agent
American citizens are unwittingly becoming Russian agents. That’s an unavoidable conclusion of Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, and an important problem that requires a change in thinking about how people interact on social media. Old adages like “Don’t talk to strangers” don’t really apply in a hyperconnected world. A more accurate replacement is perhaps even more worrying, though: “If you talk to strangers online, assume they are spies until proven otherwise.”

Facebook estimated that 126 million Americans saw one of more than 3,500 Russian-purchased ads on its site. Twitter identified nearly 40,000 Russia-linked accounts that issued 1.5 million tweets, which were viewed a total of 288 million times. As a social media researcher and educator, this shows the scale of people’s exposure to state propaganda and the potential to influence public opinion. But that’s not the really bad news.

According to the Mueller report, some U.S. citizens even helped Russian government agents organize real-life events, aiding the propaganda campaign, possibly without knowing that’s what they were doing. There’s a whole section of the report called “Targeting and Recruitment of U.S. Persons,” detailing how Russian agents approached people through direct messages on social media, as part of their efforts to sow discord and division in order to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Mueller doesn’t say why these people let themselves be manipulated into participating. But this Russian victory, the co-opting of Americans against their own democratic processes, happened because the Russian government used old-school influence techniques on new social media platforms. Online predators with harmful agendas often use the same tricks, so learn to protect yourself.

They can't rely on the same trick much longer, surely. As the population continues to move left won't these low spots, or pockets of evangelical/conservative/fundy votes get smaller and smaller so that the popular vote is not at risk of being undermined in the same way?

As long as the Electoral College and the Senate exist in their current form, and as long as liberals keep piling up on the coasts, the rurals will have the rest of us over a barrel.

Bad government is the natural product of rule by those who believe government is bad. —Thomas Frank

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. —Einstein
I’m a nationalist. —Trump

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

I don't trust polls. Most of Trump's supporters are illiterate anyway. They could not participate in a written poll.
