Newsom was targeted for recall before election. "Do elections matter anymore"

Column: Tyranny of the minority, or how Trump and other sore losers are making our nasty politics worse

Itís often said that elections have consequences. Elections also have outcomes and a fixed date when they take place. After the ballots are counted, theyíre over.

Or at least thatís how itís supposed work. One candidate wins, another loses, and all sides move on to the next election, which always seems to be just around the corner.

But things are different now. We find ourselves in a treacherous place in which a growing number of politicians and their followers loudly refuse to accept the results of an election.

Not in the manner of petulantly declaring so-and-so is not my president, or reflexively opposing policies pushed by a Democrat or Republican chief executive or by a partyís legislative leaders.

Rather, theyíre seeking to nullify an election in its entirety, effectively canceling the will of the majority, to use a term now in fashion.
