The 2020 campaign has been so contorted by the coronavirus that the Democrats and Republicans are still figuring out how on Earth they’ll hold virtual conventions. Now imagine how it could make a mess out of November.
As President Donald Trump bizarrely tweeted about delaying the election, the media are starting to admit that mail-in voting might not turn out very well.
