98% of the violence is coming from one party, bro. THAT is plainly obvious. And it ain’t the right.

Not surprised jelly is pushing more fake narratives. It's like he didn't learn anything from his Russia hoax embarrassment.

Doubtful. Unlike blue states, Georgia maintains accurate voter registration rolls. A hypothetical example...I can promise you that Uncle Teddy who did 20 years in the pen for DUI felony murder when he killed Mary Jo in a car crash has been removed and is no longer registered to vote in this state.

:suspicious: The conks already have 50 in the Senate. Conks just need to win 1 of the 2 Jaw-Jah seats, irregardless of Manchin. The donks will need to win both to get to 50. Of course, anything is possible with GA I guess, because the below makes no sense:
-GA just 2 years ago elected one of the most, if not the most, Trumpian gov out there, more Trumpian than some conk gov in some deep red states that went to Trump by 20-40 pts.
-GA just now (Biden up by .2% before the recount) looks like they might go Biden.
He is, but he hasn't governed like a Trumpian, which has drawn some ire from Trump in the past.
The chance of either one of those seats going Donk are slim. Even with the Libertarian stealing 110K votes, Perdue 'won' by about 90K, and the same can be said for the other Senate seat as well.
Copy that, I was more assuming so based on those campaign commercials. Somenof my favorite campaign commericials of all time.

The down ballot thing doesn't hold up - I think the places where they are contesting votes are in places that already have overwhelming support for the down ticket Democratic candidates. These are deeply blue congressional districts, heck, in some places they may not even have a competitor on the other side. I don't think there's significant fraud, but you wouldn't be able to prove it or disprove it one way or the other based on the outcome of the down ballot races - those races were never in doubt.

Will you Republican voters accept the results of this election if the "fraud" charges are unfounded?

Oh yeah.....Biden now 5+ million votes ahead of Trump overall.....and would win the popular vote even with the State of California. :thumb:

Do you Republicans want a non-elected dictator in the White House? Just how far do you want to go? Serious questions.

I don't frankly care much what the GOP and Trumpers do at this moment, short of armed insurrection. Trump can concede or not, doesn't matter to me. Gore waited until December 13th before he finally "conceded" and even then he was strongly opposed to the outcome but he was out of time and out of options. I remember Dems on this site poring over ideas that in 2016 they could get enough faithless electors to tip the balance to Hilllary. The Electoral College votes don't happen until December 14th this year. Once those votes are cast then it's all over no matter what anyone thinks. In the end, it matters little what happens between now and the Electoral College vote. Let the Trumpers and others argue over whatever they want to argue over. It won't matter depending on the votes that really count, the 538 that get cast in December.

Well, it's a step-by-step process. First you hold the election. Then tally the votes. Then certify the votes. Then the EC does their thing. We aren't even through step #2 in some states yet.

BTW, that is not meant to be a disagreement to your statement. Just added a bit more detail.

I don't disagree. I think we're getting a little bit towards crazy here (and let's be honest, we've probably been there for awhile now) because Trump hasn't given a speech. Conceding's not even a thing anymore. Gore basically admitted he was out of time but he still disagreed with the result, Obama made sure there was a lot of Russian innuendo and other leads as he left the White House in '16 (and we launched the Resistance immediately following that election), heck, Stacy Abrams is a rock star in Democratic circles and she flat out said she would never concede. Frankly, I think people are more concerned about their stock footage for their meme creation than anything else. Trump can't run away from the process, and everything is official come December 14th. I would certainly want things to be a bit more genteel and cooperative, but these surely haven't been genteel and cooperative times.

The results aren’t certified by Congress until 1/6/21, 2 weeks before the 1/20 Inauguration.

It would seem that the 2016 Presidential election had way less interference than the 2020 election. So I’m not sure that Biden will be quite as legitimate as Trump was, when he takes office.
