John Roberts and the Supreme Court might block anything Democrats do on voting rights

Legal experts continue to express skepticism that a Congressional restoration of the federal government’s authority to approve or reject state voting laws – also known as “preclearance” – will survive a review by the current US Supreme Court. While conservative Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has expressed a willingness to restore preclearance powers to the federal government through Congressional legislation, experts think it is very possible that the new formula being devised by the Democrats for determining when a state has created discriminatory voting policies will still be found unconstitutional by the majority-conservative Supreme Court.
