Joe Biden is having a panic attack about these new election security laws

President Biden is set for a collision course with former President Donald Trump in a rematch. Everything is different now.

Because Joe Biden’s panicking about these crucial new election security laws.

No matter what you may think about what happened in the 2020 election cycle, the fact remains that millions upon millions of Americans believe that there were at least some shenanigans being pulled to tip the scales. Americans on both ends of the political spectrum feel this way too. Whether that’s true or not is beside the point.

What really matters is that there have now been major efforts almost exclusively on the part of the Republican party to introduce new legislation and regulations for elections to make them more secure.

Simple laws preventing bad actors from manipulating elections seem like common sense for members of the GOP. In some cases, these laws can have major implications for the outcome of elections.

The latest state to adopt new election regulations is none other than the battleground state of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin has given the green light to two election integrity measures supported by Republicans, signaling a significant shift in how the crucial swing state manages its electoral processes leading up to the November elections, reports The Associated Press.

One initiative aims to eliminate private funding from elections, while the other seeks to impose stricter regulations on who can undertake election-related tasks. As of the latest projections from the AP, both questions garnered support from 52% and 55.5% of voters, respectively.

The first question takes aim at what critics dub “Zuckerbucks,” referring to the substantial sums Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg injected into election offices nationwide in 2020 through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. Specifically, it targets the Center for Technology and Civic Life (CTCL), a left-leaning nonprofit that received around $350 million from the initiative to assist with election administration during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the last election cycle, CTCL granted Wisconsin $10 million for election efforts, a move that sparked controversy given the state’s razor-thin margins of victory. Critics, predominantly conservatives, argue that such funds were disproportionately allocated to Democratic-leaning urban areas, potentially influencing turnout in favor of the Democrats. Since then, 27 states have implemented measures to restrict or outright ban private funding in elections, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The second question seeks to limit who can carry out election-related duties to only those designated as “election officials” by law.

Republican leaders in Wisconsin, including Sen. Ron Johnson and Rep. Bryan Steil, threw their weight behind both initiatives, urging voters to support them. Conversely, the Wisconsin Democratic Party has voiced opposition to these measures.

These initiatives were propelled to the ballot after Democratic Governor Tony Evers vetoed similar Republican-backed legislation. The decision to let voters decide reflects the partisan deadlock in the state legislature.

With November on the horizon, Wisconsin gears up for two critical elections: a rematch between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden, and a Senate race pivotal for control of the upper chamber.

Recent polling suggests a tight race, with Trump leading Biden by four points and Republican Eric Hovde trailing Democratic Senator Tammy Baldwin by three points, according to an Emerson College poll released on March 21.

For Joe Biden and company, this is the last news they wanted to hear come out of Wisconsin which will prove to be crucial to the Democrats getting Joe Biden back into the White House for a second term.

In 2020, Joe Biden carried Wisconsin by just over half a percentage point. That is well within a natural variance from election to election. Meaning the battleground state is absolutely on the table for Donald Trump to take back from incumbent Biden.

Many other states are up for grabs as well as Georgia was decided by less than half a percentage point and Arizona and Pennsylvania were decided by less than a point as well. Michigan and Nevada were also close as they went to Biden’s corner by less than three points in 2020.
