The highly contested 2020 election makes the 2022 midterms much weightier. With swing states like Georgia, Arizona and Pennsylvania fighting for a party stronghold, both Democrats and Republicans are taking an “all hands on deck” approach. American politics, especially during an election year, are a battlefield, and Michelle Obama has made it clear she wants to train up an army. The former first lady has utilized the power and influence gained through her husband’s presidency to blaze a trail of political activism for the leftist agenda. Michelle founded a voting organization in 2018, When We All Vote — a nonpartisan, nonprofit — whose mission is “to change the culture around voting and to increase participation in each and every election by helping to close the race and age gap.” The organization recently addressed Americans in a letter titled “Fight for Our Vote,” encouraging them to “vote like the future of our democracy depends on it.” In the letter, Obama laid out a plan of action to “recruit and train at least 100,000 volunteers” and “register more than a million new voters.” With influential Democratic leaders like the Obama’s, we can expect the efforts are partisan, and a bit of research supports that assumption.
