That's right. John McCain conceded. The governor appointed a replacement senator.

How did it work that other time someone wrong-thought they had won??

Did Scotus kick it over to The House for correction, or was it Scotus that took it from Gore and handed it to W themselves??

Let him sue.

We are 10 days before the States have to resolve their election disputes. FYI: Michigan, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Nevada have ALL certified their elections. Arizona certifies on Monday. Wisconsin on Tuesday.

Seriously Bubba what key state are you referring to? Oregon? Washington? California? New York?

Are you even familiar with Bush v Gore? That was over 533 votes in one State and the court didn't flip the State vote, they stopped a recount.

Joe Biden LOST every bellwether county but one...

TRAILED Clinton’s vote totals except mysteriously in 4 swing state metros...

While President @realDonaldTrump
WON a historic incumbent vote total, picked up House seats.

But we are told Joe won?

5 More Ways Joe Biden Magically Outperformed Election Norms
1. 80 Million Votes

Holy moly! A lot of Americans turned out for a Washington politician who’s been in office for nearly 50 years. Consider this: no incumbent president in nearly a century and a half has gained votes in a re-election campaign and still lost.

President Trump gained more than ten million votes since his 2016 victory, but Biden’s appeal was so substantial that it overcame President Trump’s record support among minority voters. Biden also shattered Barack Obama’s own popular vote totals, really calling into question whether it was not perhaps Biden who pulled Obama across the finish lines in 2008 and 2012.

Proving how sharp his political instincts are, the former VP managed to gather a record number of votes while consistently trailing President Trump in measures of voter enthusiasm. Biden was so savvy that he motivated voters unenthusiastic about his campaign to vote for him in record numbers.

Come on guys, this is just getting pathetic now. Just ignore Bubba. He's never before acknowledged any of the massive fails of his world view, and he's not going to start now. January 19th, 2025*, he'll still be talking about how Biden is just about to lose the election. Reality doesn't matter.


*Yes, 2025, he'll be whining about this for four years, all the time, thinking he's the smartest guy in the room.

5. Biden Overcame Trumpís Commanding Primary Vote

In the past, primary vote totals have been remarkably accurate in predicting general election winners. Political analyst David Chapman highlighted three historical facts before the election.

First, no incumbent who has received 75 percent of the total primary vote has lost re-election. Second, President Trump received 94 percent of the primary vote, which is the fourth highest of all time (higher than Dwight Eisenhower, Nixon, Clinton, or Obama). In fact, Trump is only one of five incumbents since 1912 to receive more than 90 percent of the primary vote.

Third, Trump set a record for most primary votes received by an incumbent when more than 18 million people turned out for him in 2020 (the previous record, held by Bill Clinton, was half that number). For Biden to prevail in the general election, despite Trumpís historic support in the primaries, turns a centuryís worth of prior election data on its head.

Joe Biden achieved the impossible. Itís interesting that many more journalists arenít pointing that out.

I really don't know where people come up with this crap. Who decides what makes a county a bellwether? The fact is Biden outperformed Hillary throughout most states nationwide.

But let's get this perfectly clear. Biden didn't win this election because the citizens loved Biden. No this was a referendum on Trump. No politician in history encouraged people to vote for and against him like Trump.

For all the Trump zealots there were many more Americans who hate and despise Trump.

Biden was the perfect candidate to run against Trump because he is everything Trump is not. He's kind, empathetic and cares about others. Trump only cares about himself.
