Forget the dystopian nonsense being talked about dead people on electoral rolls being “voter fraud”. Anybody pushing that line of argument is either being disingenuous or stupid, or both.
The real problem with the modern US electoral system is that generations of gerrymandering have converted most of the competitive seats into safe seats for one of the two major parties. This has been a gradual process, but it results in the total devaluation of general election results, and a focus on primary elections, since the winner of the primary in a seat guarantees that person will be elected.
