This article gets it right, because it reports on the vast power of

the Republican state legislatures that are working to change the voting laws so that elections can be overturned at the state level. That means that a legislature who doesn't like the outcome of an election can nullify it and appoint their own slate of electors.
That's an extremely serious situation, which signifies the end of democracy and the end of the right of self rule.
This part of the article was particularly interesting below:
Even many members of his own party have blamed him for inciting the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, but since then Trump has only tightened his grip on the GOP.

He remains one of the most popular figures in the Republican Party and is considered the front-runner for the 2024 presidential nomination, if he decides to run again.

When he ran in 2016, Trump was seen as having a shoestring campaign, fighting an uphill battle with few allies among Republican elected leaders.

Today, it's a different story. Trump's political organization has become a juggernaut. Not only are most Republican elected leaders falling in line, but he has also installed allies controlling many levers of political power across the country. In state after state, Trump allies are running local Republican parties, serving as state representatives and in charge of political action committees.

It's a political army ready to be mobilized at his beck and call. What he says — what his message is to them — matters because they follow.
