The 2020 Presidential Election: Democracy and the Rule of Law in the Balance

By Anh Lê

This presidential election is the most consequential one in our nation's history.

As the ballots in Pennsylvania and other states are still being counted, the president has tried to wreak havoc, sow confusion, and attempt to disenfranchise American voters who have cast their ballots.

Only a few hours after Election Day, he declared himself the winner, claiming falsely that the vote counts proved it, albeit Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris were ahead by a wide margin in the Electoral College at that time.

His attacks on the states' election operations and his accusations of "fraud" against them are smokescreens to destroy an orderly process to count every and all the ballots cast by American voters.

His lawsuits filed against certain states such as Pennsylvania and Michigan to halt the counting of the ballots, and other states such as Georgia to interfere with their handling of the ballots, are frivolous, spurious, and without substance.

Just as Michigan, Minnesota, and other states have declared Biden - Harris the winners already, so will Pennsylvania and the remaining states which are carefully counting their ballots.

During this presidential election campaign, for the first time in American history, both parties' candidates have made sure to use the term, "Asian Americans," along with the terms for the other major ethnic and racial groups, in their speeches.

Have the parties' candidates suddenly recognized the power and strength of the votes of Asian Americans?

Nevertheless, neither party nor their candidates have yet made the real deep outreach efforts in the Asian American communities that are required to be considered substantial by Asian Americans.  This remains both parties' and their candidates' failure.  In the future, both parties and their candidates need to address this remaining and glaring failure.

My prediction that Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris would win the election by a landslide did not come to fruition. The reality is that the election results thus far show a split right down the middle between the two parties and their candidates.
