Things are looking bleak for Trump’s re-election, though there are some promising signs that Arizona and Pennsylvania could go for Trump. The majors called Michigan and Wisconsin for Biden last night, but both States have incredibly fishy returns, such as Wisconsin’s 4 AM dump of 138,000 votes—all for Biden. Trump’s campaign has already called for a recount in Wisconsin, which could help Trump.
We’ll see. Nevada is supposed to report results today, but they’ve been putting machinery in place to make fraud easier.
The takeaway: local and State elections matter. Having good Republicans staffing seemingly mundane positions makes a difference in running clean, fair elections. Consider: when most progressives believe that they are noble warriors fighting against Trump the Fascist, it becomes easy for them to rationalize unethical, immoral, and illegal behavior, like throwing out Trump ballots and withholding vote totals from pro-Trump counties.
The Republican Party can’t compete with the Democrats for gentry white liberals. We must become the party of the working class—“blue-collar nationalists,” as my brother put it.
