Instead of calling voter fraud fears a "Republican Fantasy", I think it should be called the "Republican Delusion", its more accurate sounding, to me. A fantasy sounds like something desirable, where a Delusion sounds like mental disability.

This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
