Dems celebrate Green Party’s ballot demise

Empower Wisconsin | Sept 16, 2020 

MADISON — The Wisconsin Supreme Court’s 4-3 ruling this week keeping Green Party presidential candidates off the November ballot was a huge victory for Joe Biden and the Democrats. 

For all of the left’s dire warnings about ballot “chaos” if the court didn’t stop the Green Party, it’s clear one of the Democrats’ biggest goals was stopping another repeat of the 2016 election. That’s when Green Party candidate Jill Stein received 31,072 votes, presumably taking many of those votes from Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton. A lot of Dems blame Stein for taking away critical votes and handing Donald Trump the victory in a battleground state decided by less than 23,000 votes. 

The relief was palpable. 

On its Facebook page, above a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel headline declaring, “Wisconsin Supreme Court rules to keep Green Party off the ballot,” the La Crosse County Democratic Party wrote, “Yay!”

Democrats elsewhere have sued to keep the Greens off the ballot. They’re trying to do the same with rap star Kanye West, whom they believe will siphon black votes from Biden.
