One good thing about President Trump, he’s a fighter. He may be bloodied and backed into the corner about now but you know that he will continue to fight to the bitter end. The Leftist/Commies need to cheat to even stay in the game. That is the way it is from the top down with the dems. Trump beats them about the head and shoulders with the truth.
At about 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, with officials in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin determining no winner would be announced on Election Night, President Trump told supporters at the White House that Democrats were trying to steal the election.
“This is a fraud on the American public. This is an embarrassment to our country. We were getting ready to win the election. Frankly, we did win the election.”President Trump
Trump said his campaign will go to the U.S. Supreme Court.
- “We want all voting to stop,” he said. “We don’t want them to find ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list.”
The Supreme Court last month rejected a Republican request for a stay on a Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision that allows mailed ballots postmarked by Election Day to be counted if they arrived by 5 p.m. Friday. The justices ruled 4-4 not to issue the stay, allowing the state to extend the deadline. Since that ruling, the vacancy left by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been filled by Trump nominee Amy Coney Barrett.
Trump said at the White House his lead in Pennsylvania was 690,000 votes, with 64% of the vote recorded and pro-Trump counties still to be counted.
He was leading in Michigan by almost 300,000 votes with 65% of the vote recorded. In Wisconsin, with 88% reported, the president led 51.2% to 47.3%.
Overnight, Biden has taken a narrow lead in Wisconsin (0.8%) and Michigan (0.7%). Trump maintains his lead in Pennsylvania, 54.1% to 44.8%, with 64% of the votes counted.
Trump has won the key battlegrounds of Florida and Ohio. He currently has 213 electoral votes, but likely will win Alaska, with three electoral votes, and one of Maine’s four split votes, giving him 217.
If he picks up the additional four votes and maintains his leads in Georgia (16), North Carolina (15) and Pennsylvania (20), he could reach the 270 needed for victory without Wisconsin and Michigan.
Trump would then need to win Nevada’s six votes or Arizona’s 11.
In Nevada, with 67% counted, Biden leads by 0.6%. Fox News called Arizona for Biden, but the Trump campaign, which the network reported was “livid” about the decision, insisting the state is still in play.
Without Arizona, Biden has 227 electoral votes. If Trump wins Georgia, North Carolina and Pennyslvania, Biden would hit 270 exactly by winning Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin and Nevada.
In a conference call with reporters at about 10 a.m. Wednesday morning, the Trump campaign tamped down the president’s declaration that he has won but expressed confidence he is on a path to victory, with millions of votes yet to be counted.
Officials said they were confident Trump would win Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada and Georgia and were preparing for legal action.
- “We are confident on our pathway. We are confident on our math,” said campaign manager Bill Stepien.
- “We know the Democrats are pushing to count late ballots,” he said. “Why are they pushing to count late ballots? Because we know and they know if we count all legal ballots, we win, the president wins.”
In his White House remarks, Trump, without mentioning the network, criticized Fox News’ decision to call Arizona for Biden, saying his campaign still has “a lot of life there.” With 84% of the vote counted in Arizona, Biden leads 51% to 47.6%.
Pollster Rich Baris, who predicted a close election that would be decided in the Rust Belt, said Wednesday morning that the calling of Arizona for Biden by Fox News and AP when Trump was quickly closing the gap in the state stopped the president’s momentum nationally.
When Fox News called Arizona, he noted, the vote count stopped in Maricopa County as well as in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia and North Carolina.
The Trump campaign said Wednesday their numbers indicate the president will prevail in Arizona by 30,000 votes, arguing they accurately predicted a close race in Wisconsin while predicted a Biden blowout.
Baris, in a tweet, said his numbers show Trump winning Arizona by 10,000 votes.
Veteran pollster Matt Towery of InsiderAdvantage said he was “amazed” Georgia was not called Tuesday night.
- “There are not enough votes available to bring this race much closer or to create a contested situation,” he said.
- “There was no Democratic wave in Georgia, despite what most pollsters and the national media had trumpeted.”
Towery, who has accurately polled the winner of every state race so far, said the “national networks are making fools of themselves by continuing to argue that Georgia is undecided.”
- “By doing so, they create confusion and mistrust for their efforts. It is time to call Georgia now,” he said.
At 12:45 a.m. Wednesday morning, as Biden took to a parking-lot stage to speak to supporters, Trump dispatched a tweet that Twitter immediately flagged with a warning to readers.
- “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election,” the president wrote.
- “We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”
Twitter’s warning said, “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about an election or other civic process.”
Prior to Election Day, establishment media predicted a landslide for Biden, with The Economist estimating the president’s chance of winning was 3% and Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight giving him a 10% chance.
But when Biden spoke to supporters in Wilmington, Delaware, both candidates saw a path to victory through the Rust Belt states.
- “Your patience is commendable,” Biden said as car horns honked.
- “We knew this was going to go long, but who knew we were going to go maybe into tomorrow morning, maybe even longer?”
Biden insisted he’s on track to win.
- “We knew because of the unprecedented early mail-in vote that it was going to take a while,” he said.
- “And it ain’t over until every vote, every ballot is counted.”
The Democrat said his campaign is “feeling good” about Michigan and Wisconsin, and thinks it will win Pennsylvania.
However, CNN’s chief national correspondent, John King, said Biden would need to win 75% of the remaining votes in Pennsylvania to overcome the president’s lead, which he called “a steep hill.”
Trump won the battleground of Iowa by 7 points, while the former vice president has taken Minnesota.
The president also has won Idaho, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas, Missouri, Indiana, Kentucky, West Virginia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina and four of Nebraska’s five votes.
Biden has won California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Illinois, Virginia, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, the District of Columbia and three of Maine’s four votes.
Bloomberg reporter Saleha Mohsin said election officials in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania said they wouldn’t announce a winner on Election Night.
The Biden campaign believed Texas was in play, but the race has been called for Trump, who leads by nearly 6 points with 84% reporting.
