Trump garnered 73 million votes, the most in any American election outside of Biden's 80 million votes. Biden won the popular vote by 7 million people - 5 million in California, 1 million in New York and the rest scattered between Washington and Oregon primarily and a few other Dem strongholds. How many of those for Biden were anything but Trump votes (funny how he lost by the same reason he won against Hillary. Guess it goes from Hillary>Trump>Biden in the way people rank their dislike of them.) Trump lost the EC by about 45k votes in 3 states. That is not much of a sweeping mandate now is it? Almost exactly like how he was voted into office. :coffee:

One has to wonder if he could of just kept his fingers away from Twitter what could/may of happened. Then again he may not be the figure he is without those Tweets. Something for the Historians to argue about over a beer I guess. :nod:

BTW: Hilary lost the election by 77k in three Midwest states. We are the same country in 2020 as we were in 2016, just a little more jaded and hopefully wiser.
The MSM count (well NBC) shows Biden up by 6 million. Biden at about 79.8, Trump at about 73.8. Or rounded 80 million to 74 million.

But state and county election data show that four years ago - when Donald Trump carried the state by a much narrower margin - twice as many Detroit precincts were out of balance.

This has never been about election safety or integrity. It's always been about trying to undermine the will of the voters and steal the election.

52% Of Republicans Think Trump ‘Rightfully Won’ Election, Poll Finds
https://www.forbes.com/sites/alisondurk ... 7fc4c649e1
https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.forbes ... y-win/amp/
Ok, was 75% Rasmussen poll last week, and 79% below:
66% GOP wants Trump to run in 2024, 79% say election ‘stolen’

..... “Sixty-six percent of GOP voters think President Trump should run again for president in 2024. Provided a list of potential candidates, Trump leads the 2024 field among Republican voters, with 35%. He’s trailed by Vice President Mike Pence (19%), Donald Trump Jr. (11%), Ambassador Nikki Haley (7%), and Senator Ted Cruz (6%),” said the analysis.....

But that doesn't mean that true conservaTISM is stupid. So stop making it look that way.

Nope. I don't "believe" either side of the argument. Both sides are possible. And I know we will never know the truth. We will only know what we are told. YOU on the other hand, believe what you are told. That's dangerous.

In football refereeing terminology, the play "stands", as opposed to "confirmed".

The most important point is that if Trump were to flip those three States it'd mean we'd be in a crisis as a country because he would've succeeded in corrupting our representative system of government. We would be in banana republic territory where the guy who clearly lost a free and fair election managed to stay in the game to stay in power even though The People clearly indicated they want him out.

You should not be hoping for that sort of thing if you love your Country. You should be at the front of the line saying we should all hope nothing like that happens.

I agree. I HOPE nothing like that happens. But if they discover fraud and it DOES happen, we’ve got a different set of problems we’re going to have to deal with as a country.

5 More Ways Joe Biden Magically Outperformed Election Norms
Surely the journalist class should be intrigued by the historic implausibility of Joe Biden’s victory. That they are not is curious, to say the least.
