I heard a NPR piece today on the various Trump cult/Republican voter fraud claims. None of them have withstood scrutiny. But this one is particularly bad:

https://www.wbir.com/article/news/verif ... cce9f38409

That pretty much verifies what I heard on NPR. First of all, there was a clerical error by a REPUBLICAN election official who said in an NPR interview that she voted for Trump. The error caused votes to be added for Biden. When the error was caught >100,000 Biden votes were DELETED to correct the error.

So somebody posted screen shots in reverse order. What the change actually showed was Biden votes disappearing. But somebody reversed to order to make it look like Biden votes were added. I mean, how dishonest can you get?

Here are some other ones I checked on after hearing the NPR piece:

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/fac ... 149392002/
Trump ballots were not thrown out as claimed by fake poll worker
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/202 ... 202337002/
Georgia poll worker in hiding after being harassed over fake claims he trashed a ballot
They interviewed somebody from an organization that monitors internet misinformation. The lady said that not a single Trump cult/Republican voter fraud claim has been shown to be factual.

If you are a conservative you should be concerned about what has happened to the conservative movement. It is fundamentally, deeply dishonest right now.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

The election crap is akin to the Russia probe the Democrats pushed and wasted 4 years on. Just hope the conservatives come to their senses and abandon this election fraud crap. Tired of 4 years worth of Democrat election fraud and tampering crap.

All that matters is the swing states. 538 was also further off than the RCP at swing states (maybe because 538 excluded Trafalgar). If you remove Trafalgar from some of these RCP pre election averages, its looks even worse for the polls in that they would be 1 to 2 points even further off for Biden (like 538).
I just pulled up my recording of watching Smerconish interview the Trafalgar guy on the Saturday prior to the election. Trafalgar had Trump as favored. They had him with 275 electoral votes, Biden with 216 electoral votes, and four states (Nevada, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania) too close to call.

They had Trump winning Michigan, Arizona, and Georgia.

Silver had Biden as the favorite. Trafalgar had Trump as the favorite. Under ordinary circumstances, we would already be saying Silver was right and Trafalgar was wrong. Under ordinary circumstances, the candidate in Trump's shoes right now would already have conceded and e wouldn't be going through recounts and such. We certainly wouldn't have a situation where a candidate was trying to completely overturn results from various States when there is no evidence that anything untoward happened.

She seems arrogantly oblivious to the mindset of Donk voters in West Virginia, rural Virginia, etc. as well as the importance of holding those seats in order to have majorities in both houses of Congress. Does she want to self-righteously double down on her ideological positions or does she want to recognize and respect the diversity of the ideas within the Donk base and have a chance to actually get something done?
She struggles with majority concepts as well.

She struggles with ANY concept involving actual numbers.

Crazy that they had Minnesota too close to call. The Twin Cities will usually pull it out for the dems. I had no doubt in my mind Biden would win the state.

Everyone has the right to contest an election. But when not having any evidence of wrong doing, a lawsuit must seem frivolous to the experts.

Yup. The courts will hash out any that may be frivolous and this will all work itself out.

The issue is still the recounts and the parlor games being played with the observers.

You're right. The observers issue will be dismissed. Mainly because you have hundreds of Republican observers saying they had no problems observing the count.

You'd have to ask her about that but I don't see any sign that she's all that inflexible. She represents a new generation and they think different. And time is on her side. And the sooner this iteration of the DNC hits the rubbish heap the better.
Getting her hackles up over Manchin and moderate Dems shows she doesn't understand the thinking of voters in other districts and their importance to a Democratic majority. It's short-sighted and foolish. She thinks she's right and everyone else just needs to get on board or be left behind = arrogant & self-righteous.
Bullshit. Its the moderates with their hackles up; tried to primary her and got dogwalked. :coffee:

Yup. Trump ( and Biden) should let their lawyers clear this up. Stay off the media and let the courts review the evidence, scrutinize it and make a decision.

Preferably, based on facts and evidence. Not trumped up charges and bogus allegations.

What a retarded statement. That would imply that ZERO democrats who voted absentee in primary declined to vote in the election.

i swear, some of these morons really should abide by the adage that tis’ better to be thought a fool than open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.
