Portuguese newspaper quotes Burkhart on U.S. election

Público, a newspaper in Lisbon, Portugal, quoted Ross Burkhart, a professor of Political Science in the School of Public Service.

The article is titled Trump reforça ‘plano sem precedentes’ para alterar resultado das eleições nos EUA, which roughly translates as Trump stresses ‘unprecedented plan’ to change U.S. election results.

Burkhart describes President Trump’s strategy to overturn the presidential election results in key states, discusses the unconventional nature of the strategy as well as its low likelihood of success given state election laws. Burkhart also gives reasons why overcoming political divisions in the U.S. during Trump’s presidency will be difficult.
