NJ legislature trying to move on Trump like a bitch, grab him by the tax returns

Wouldn't any state-specific requirement to be on a ballot just set precedent for red States to me completely onerous and arbitrary requirements?

 

Exactly. Utah will come up with a requirement that you have to be Mormon to be on the ballot. Idaho will demand that you have only eaten freedom fries made from Idaho spuds and never french fries. Texas will require your IQ to be below 75 because they have already set that precedent.

But those are the qualifications to be president, not to be on a ballot. 

Other measures to qualify someone to be on a ballot are "reasonable" to ensure someone has some support (signature minimums) and can cover the cost of processes involved with putting a name on ballots (fees to file) or are part of a major political party (essentially the support requirement put another way)

 

Requiring tax returns isn't relevant from this perspective. I see this getting thrown out quickly should it pass, as sympathetic as I am to it
