The U.S. Centers for Disease Control says people who test positive for COVID-19 can still vote in person, according to a recent advisory on voting safely amid the pandemic.

“Voters who are sick or in quarantine should take steps to protect poll workers and other voters,” the advisory reads.

The instructions will likely raise eyebrows for many Americans living in states where sweeping mail-in voting measures have been adopted to reduce the spread of the novel virus.

“This includes wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer before and after voting,” it states.”You should also let poll workers know that you are sick or in quarantine when you arrive at the polling location. Check with local authorities for any additional guidance.”

The instructions will likely raise eyebrows for many Americans living in states where sweeping mail-in voting measures have been adopted to reduce the spread of the novel virus.

“It should also raise some eyebrows regarding the extreme measures taken to lockdown businesses and shut down schools to mitigate the spread when according to the CDC wearing a mask and keeping social distance is all you need,” said Sara Carter on Tuesday, when the news came out. “It’s this back and forth that has Americans so confused as to the aimless mandates being imposed on our nation with regard to COVID-19.”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
