1. Absolutely. On top of suppression, there must have been blatant rigging.

3. GA yes

Florida is just Florida and Ohio isn't a surprise at all.

4. Georgia is a mess. But their problem is easier to identify than Florida's.

I still can't believe that Kemp presided over his own election.

5. Of Course, They're Rigged

Republicans got away with stealing two presidential elections. Cheating works well for them. We need a concentrated national effort focused on election integrity. The future of our democracy depends on it.

7. As a resident...I doubt Ohio is rigged.


All of the statewide slots went to republicans and the numbers were reasonably consistent. Sherrod is the exception and, in reality, he's a brand of his own.

The congressional delegation is the product of a well gerrymandered state. We have 4 dem congressmen and I believe they all won by 70+. At the same time, the republicans (with one exception) won with 53-58% of the vote. Exception is Jim Jordan with 70+...almost as if they designed his district to tolerate the asshole that he is.

So...rigged?...never say never...but at the same time...all of the local results (at least in SW Ohio) down into the state house and state senate races...their numbers look consistent.

12. You're exactly right. The rigging occurred when the GOP legislature gerrymandered the state in 2010

13. agree.

Ive lived in terrace park for 20 years.

It's a name recognition thing here and people vote for what's known and comfortable. That and because its uber white and the people in my village think they are Gods gift

8. FL and GA should fight this one

I believe there are certain siacrepancies which should be forwarded to their state boards and issue both challenges or at least a discussion of voting irregularities.

11. Really? What's so hard to believe about

masses of white folks in two Deep South states being so terrified of African-American chief executives that they turned out in record numbers to prevent it?

14. Dont forget voting machines flipping from Beto to Ted in TX.

15. Today, Missouri passed a big minimum wage increase to $12 an hour over the next couple of years,

We passed medical marijuana including the right to grow your own and we passed a huge bill that will heavily deter gerrymandering in Missouri. In August we voted overwhelmingly against Right to Work.

We've voted for all of these things yet nearly every single Democratic candidate lost in our races, even when the exit polls showed otherwise. Throw MO in your group of states that might be rigged.

(Our Secretary of State is John Ashcroft, yep that Ashcroft's son.)
