Is the U.S. Headed Toward a Short British-Style Election?

From the White House to the county courthouse, the coronavirus has fundamentally transformed political life in America, affecting how candidates communicate with voters, raise money from donors and confront their opponents.

从白宫到县级法院,新冠病毒从根本上改变了美国的政治生活,影响着候选人与选民沟通、从捐款人那里筹集资金以及对抗对手的方式。

This is for now the country’s first virtual campaign, as the risk of disease physically separates candidates from the people they seek to represent, and pushes officeseekers from Mr. Biden on down to appeal to homebound voters and contributors through balky web videos.

这是美国目前首次网上进行的竞选活动,因为疫情的风险让候选人无法实地接触他们试图代表的民众,也迫使从拜登起自上而下的各级公职竞选者们,通过不太好使的网络视频工具,来拉拢居家隔离的选民和捐助者。

Incumbents at every level, starting with Mr. Trump, will be judged on how they prepared for and steered the country through a crisis that has turned the life of nearly every voter upside down.

The long sweep of American history is filled with presidential elections that took place during times of war and upheaval, but there is little modern precedent for a campaign unfolding against a backdrop of such widespread national fear.

美国丰富的历史中不乏在战争和动乱时期举行的总统选举,但在如此普遍的全民担忧背景下拉开的竞选活动,在现代史上几乎没有先例。
