Elon Musk calls on Americans to vote for the Republicans this Tuesday – Liberation

Midterms: 2022 US Midterm Electionscase

The richest man in the world, new boss of Twitter, issued this recommendation on Monday, in the name of the balance between the executive and legislative powers, to “limit” the power of the head of the Democratic state Joe Biden.

After the Russian interference, here is the Muskian instruction. On the eve of the crucial mid-term legislative elections, the Republicans recorded strong support on Monday: Elon Musk called on Americans to put a Republican ballot in the ballot box on Tuesday, against President Joe Biden.

Power sharing limits the worst excesses, so I recommend voting for a Republican Congress, given that the presidency is a Democrat,” has tweeted the new boss of the social network to its 114 million subscribers. “Democrats or die-hard Republicans never vote for the other side, so independent voters are the ones who really decide who’s in charge.” he also added.

Twitter must be ‘politically neutral’, said Musk

The same Musk, criticized from all sides after a first week of purge at the head of Twitter, wrote last April that “for Twitter to earn the public’s trust, it must be politically neutral, which means upsetting the far right and far left equally”.

In this vote organized on Tuesday, which represents the first test of the new Twitter under Musk, the country is called upon to renew the entire House of Representatives and a third of the Senate. A whole series of local elected positions, in particular governors or prosecutors, are also at stake. In an America almost cut in two, Democratic President Joe Biden is threatened by a wave of Republicans and the possible return of Donald Trump.

More than 40 million Americans had already voted early on Monday, surpassing the level of the 2018 legislative elections, according to the US Elections Project. This year, more than 18 million Americans voted in advance, in person, while 22 million people returned a ballot by mail. That’s still what Musk won’t be able to influence.
