Well, nothing got finalized last night. I went to bed around 1 AM with a sense of uncertainty, but feeling somewhat confident about Wisconsin and Michigan, and hoping the early calls for Arizona and Virginia for Biden might be reversed.
The news this morning seems grim: Wisconsin is leaning towards Biden, and Trump’s lead in Michigan has narrowed considerably—within the point where some manufactured or “found” votes from Detroit could plausibly flip it to Biden. Even Georgia seems to be tilting towards Biden, even though Trump still holds as lead there as of this writing.
There are some silver linings: Trump’s lead in Pennsylvania is around 700,000 votes, but there are apparently 1.4 million uncounted absentee ballots, which could skew heavily in Biden’s favor. I figured a 0.7 million vote lead would be so insurmountable, even Democratic malfeasance couldn’t plausibly produce enough fake votes. A 10,000 vote difference is one thing; 700,000 is quite another.
It also looks like Republicans will retain the Senate, and South Carolina US House District 1 flipped back to the GOP last night. Lindsey Graham also won his reelection bid against Jaime Harrison (and handily), who blew $104.1 million in his race against Graham.
But, at this point—and, perhaps, I’m just tired and overly pessimistic as a result—it seems like the fix is in. I was praying for a Trump showing so overwhelming, it would make fraud virtually impossible, or at least irrelevant. Now the months of Democratic fraud and pushing of mail-in voting has reaped dividend for the progressives, who will no-doubt oust Biden at the earliest opportunity.
