On April 15, 2021, the Michigan Supreme Court made history when they allowed President Donald Trump to appear on the primary ballot in 2024 if he wishes to do so. This ruling is seen as a major victory for Trump and his supporters, as it reverses a decision made by the state’s Board of State Canvassers in January 2021, which would have prevented him from appearing on the ballot.
The ruling was made by a 4-3 decision in favor of the former President, and it symbolizes the court’s willingness to stand up for the rights of those challenging state law. This particular case involved President Trump, and his supporters argued that it was unconstitutional for the Board of Canvassers to deny him a ballot spot for a presidential primary.
In their ruling, the Michigan Supreme Court argued that the Board of Canvassers did not have the right to determine whether or not a person can appear on the ballot, and that such a decision should belong to the people of the state through the normal election process. The court ruled that the Board of Canvassers acted in an arbitrary manner when they denied President Trump a spot on the ballot and that their decision had no legal basis.
This decision is widely seen as a major victory for President Trump and his supporters. It is also seen as a victory for those who have a desire to challenge state law in the courts. The ruling is a strong reminder that the courts will always side with the people if they decide to challenge the law. Additionally, it is a signal that the courts are willing to fight for those who are unfairly denied their rights.
Although President Trump is widely seen as the victor in this case, the ruling is also important for the citizens of Michigan. The ruling serves as a reminder that the people of the state have a right to be heard in the political process. It also sets a precedent that the courts will always be willing to intervene to protect the rights of the people if their rights are violated.
The decision by the Michigan Supreme Court to allow President Trump to appear on the ballot in 2024 has major implications for the 2024 presidential race. It will allow his supporters to begin to rally behind him early on in the election cycle, giving him a distinct advantage in the primary. Additionally, the ruling serves as a reminder that the courts always have the power to intervene if our rights are violated.
