In a recent Wednesday Journal essay, Harriet Hausman asks: “Is Trump turning our democracy into a dictatorship?” Your vote in the midterms can answer that question. The midterms offer the best chance for all of us who love our country to restore the balance of power — executive, legislative and judiciary — that has sustained our democracy for some 240 years. The threat posed by abuses of power, such as the White House-directed halt to an incomplete FBI investigation, reinforces the urgency of Ms. Hausman’s message: Vote!
