‘Slow-Motion Insurrection’: How GOP Seizes Election Power

“Several candidates who deny former President Donald Trump’s loss in the 2020 election, are running for offices that could have a key role in the election of the next. In the weeks leading up to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, a handful of Americans — well-known politicians, obscure local bureaucrats — stood up to block then-President Donald Trump’s unprecedented attempt to overturn a free and fair vote of the American people. In the year since, Trump-aligned Republicans have worked to clear the path for next time.

In battleground states and beyond, Republicans are taking hold of the once-overlooked machinery of elections. While the effort is incomplete and uneven, outside experts on democracy and Democrats are sounding alarms, warning that the United States is witnessing a “slow-motion insurrection” with a better chance of success than Trump’s failed power grab last year.” – NBC CT

How this map was designed

This map was designed with ArcGIS online in a few hours. Data about these endorsements was collected from BallotPedia and other sources in a database. This includes the elected position and details on the candidate. The map consists of four layers as the election area boundaries differ for each layer. These data layers can be show individually or altogether.

  • Statewide positions – Senator, Governor, Attorney General …
  • Federal Congressional districts
  • State Senate (Upper House) districts
  • State Congressional (Lower House) districts

Clicking on an area reveals the candidate running for office with a link to more information about them. The map is refreshed automatically as the data about the endorsed candidates changes in the database. The app runs in a web browser on a phone or laptop. The app is launched by scanning the QR Code or a link.

How Democracies Die

American democracy has been flawed and manipulated by both parties since its inception. Millions of Americans — Black people, women, Native Americans and others — have been excluded from the process. This time, experts argue, is different: Never in the country’s modern history has a major party sought to turn the administration of elections into an explicitly partisan act.

“It’s not clear that the Republican Party is willing to accept defeat anymore,” said Steven Levitsky, a Harvard political scientist and co-author of the book “How Democracies Die. The party itself has become an anti-democratic force.” – NBC CT
