I know judges. I have worked for and with judges. I have appeared before judges.
Judges don’t like supplant the peoples’ judgement with their own. Even when the facts and the law clearly point them in that direction.
So, if that’s the reality in the case of an election won by two dozen votes (Opitz), it is almost certainly going to be the result in the case of an election won in a landslide (Ford).
Judges, however much conservatives cynically suggest otherwise, consider the peoples’ will to be supreme.
