Trump's going to declare victory in states based on in person voting results

then sue to block and invalidate mail in ballots based on fraud. Heís already assembled a team of lawyers and itís why heís saying he can win NY( still donít think itís possible)What a gigantic shitshow this is going to be.


Edit to add: we will prevail but itís gonna be a damn mess.

3. Their thinking is that only MAGA will show up

to in person vote based on polls. I think heís wrong . I also think Democrat run states are getting systems in place to prevent chaos.

Good thing Joe was thinking far enough ahead back in June to get lawyers in place. 600 of them!

8. It would be helpful if the major networks refrain from calling any states on election night

 

based on the in-person voting and exit polls.

I am hoping they hold back as it's the right thing to do, but I fear they want the protracted legal fight for ratings and will call states based on the limited vote count.

9. So vote in person. I intend to...and I believe he will lose badly both with in person and

mail in ballots.

16. Exactly! He Can ask for recounts if close, otherwise he really has no recourse

SCOTUS conservative or not is not going to go along with throwing out mail in ballots or having to wait to declare a winner

13. If he loses the Florida election day count he is finished. Period.

Or Ohio, or any other significant state he won in 2016. It won't matter at that point if official calls can't be made in states that largely voted absentee. The handwriting would be starkly written on the wall st that point.

Does anyone know which states start legally counting mail in votes received prior to election day rather than having to wait until the morning of election day in order to start counting them? New York State, where I live, can't begin counting absentee votes until 7:00 AM on election day, and so the mail in vote totals are delayed by days if not weeks. Some states however release the tallies of early mail in votes while continuing to count those that came in on or after election day (according to their cut off date).

If enough states where early mail in votes totals can be reported on election night swing to Biden, all of Trump's protests will ring totally hollow.

15. Thst's an important one.

If Biden is leading in NC based on the combined total of election day vote and early mail in vote count totals, that I believe would sink Trump's conspiracy arguments. I am assuming that the vast majority of mail in votes will be tabulated and released election day night in NC if it allows early counting of absentee ballots. At that point there is no credible logic to argue that mail in votes that came in just under the wire would look any different than ones that came in days earlier because of alleged "fraud".

19. NC has become increasingly early in person voting

During early voting, it allows same day registration. NC also allows address changes including on Election Day
