New York Judge Reinstates Democratic Presidential Primary, Following Cuomo’s Attempt to Shelve It

New York will get to vote after all.

A federal judge ruled that New York must reinstate Bernie Sanders and the other Democratic presidential candidates to the ballot, placing the state’s primary election back into effect after Governor Andrew Cuomo had attempted to shut it down.

Judge Analisa Torres of the Southern District of New York made the ruling on Tuesday. Cuomo had initially postponed the presidential primary election(while maintaining other primary elections for state and local offices) from April to June 23rd, citing the coronavirus epidemic. He later proceeded to strip every Democratic presidential candidate from the ballot, essentially cancelling the election on grounds of public safety.

Even though Joe Biden has become the presumptive Democratic nominee, previous candidates slammed the decision to cancel the primary as an affront to the democratic voting rights of New York residents. UBI advocate and former Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Yang had filed the lawsuit against Cuomo in federal court, leading to the primary’s reinstatement.

The outright cancellation of a primary election with millions of potential voters was nearly unprecedented, and Cuomo’s explanation of it being acceptable because the other Democrats had dropped out of the race proved unsatisfying.

Perhaps the New York governor, whose national profile has been illuminated from his daily coronavirus press briefings, had been seeking to throw a bone to Biden’s team with the hopes that he would be selected as the party elder’s Vice Presidential nominee. But Biden appears committed to picking a running mate who is a woman.

Polls for the Presidential Election Are Tightening, And Fast

This race is getting hot.

New polls for the November presidential election are gravitating in President Donald Trump’s direction, after months of polling that indicated Democratic challenger Joe Biden was dominating the race.

Polls from Rasmussen and the Hill have indicated that the race is close, and even within the margin of error, with the President regaining several percentage points. Polling aggregator RealClearPolitics reveals that recent polls show the President has gained 3-5 percent support.

Polls in battleground states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania show a race that is statistically tied. A Zogby Analytics poll of North Carolina, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania showed a razor-thin race in the latter three states, with Biden leading by no more than three percentage points in all of them.

Trump’s gain in recent rounds of polling may be a product of a refocused campaign strategy, with the President branching out to the constituency of white working class voters that proved essential to his shock 2016 election victory after former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reassigned.

Razor-thin election margins could mean the election is once again decided by the electoral college, as Biden’s lead in national polling places undue consideration on large margins of victory in reliably Democratic states such as California and New York.

Biden has been reluctant to appear in public, scheduling only a handful of events in which he’s received questions from the press. The President’s increasingly focused coronavirus press briefings may have signaled his intention to successfully control the pandemic.
