Only road to a trump win: cheating

Some Trump allies say their best bet is to hope that the results look close election night, before some of the mail-in ballots are counted, allowing Trump to declare victory and have the results thrown to the courts.

Yes boys and girls, beyond voter suppression by destroying the USPS or purging voter registrations or pulling out official election boxes...or putting up fake ones... or limiting polling sites and so on, trump&co are planning on *not* counting every vote, but stopping vote counting early so he can declare victory and let it be settled in the courts. There's a reason they want ACB on the court so soon that has nothing to do with roe or with the ACA...it's all about trump retaining power, legally or not, whether it means tossing your vote or not.

Clearly democrats are rightly upset about this, but so should republicans as, whether or not your guys win, it's all about the integrity of the process: recognizing the belief that everyone has a right to vote and everyone's vote should count as a shared value for both sides....though with trumplicans, I can't help but doubt that they share that belief any more...that along with trump, it's all about the win, no matter how, no matter what the cost, no matter how much you have to cheat, lie, steal, defraud, or deny Americans from their most fundamental right.

I don't think they'd get away with it, even if they do try it. tongues
barrett is not the only person on the SCOTUS so even if she was inclined
to be a trump stooge, there would be pressure from the other judges to
enforce the law and the constitution.

Where does the GOP state that not everyone's vote shouldn't count?

It's not what they say...it's what they do.

But then again, they've also screwed up and said it. See the OP.

And remember this from 2017:

  • Montana needs to elect a new US rep to replace Zinke who is Sec'y of Interior now. US Rep Essen warned against the more fiscally-responsible mail-in ballot as it would give an advantage to the democrats...“They may be well intended, but this bill could be the death of our effort to make Montana a reliably Republican state,” Essman wrote. Essman, in his email, predicted that a mail-in ballot could increase the turnout of “low-propensity voters,” which would be advantageous to Democrats. The Montana Sec'y of State, who also happens to be their GOP chair agrees. Result, the GOP gets their way.

There has been a concerted effort for years in the gop to suppress votes as they know they are in a minority. Rather than change their policies to be more responsive to the wants and needs of the American people, they stick to their grafting and power grabs and cheat to maintain office. In 2016 they went for the biggest cheat of all to represent their party. So apt.

I am convinced Trump will pull "something" if he loses but I don't think he can declare himself a winner whenever he wants to and go to court. It is my understanding that each State ratifies/verifies their votes and each State declares the winner of their State and the electoral votes are allocated as per the State's law.

Trump can "say" he is the winner, and no doubt will, but I can't see how he can go to court until after the States have declared their winners.

Yes but in that case the votes from one particular State were counted and then were undergoing a recount when challenged in court. That was a full month past the elcetion not the next day. I don't beleive the courts would accept any challenge until the votes are all counted as described by each States laws.

I also think Trump will have a hard time mounting a court case if the win is decisive so get the heck out and vote for Biden !!!!! The world needs you too!

wrong with the results/counts? I don’t think it will just
automatically go to the the courts because Trump dictates it.

Joanie is right. Preet Bharara interviewed Marc Elias, Democrats’ top election lawyer who is responsible for overseeing the Biden campaign’s state-by-state legal war room. DH listened to the podcast and told me that Trump can't challenge the vote just because he wants to. The vote totals have to be very close, a less than 1% margin.

Elias said there will be a "red mirage" on election night of a Trump win because mail-in ballots will take several days to count, and he doesn't expect MI and PA to report totals for several days. He said that the concern is that Trump will use that lag to declare victory. So you Trumpers better prepare yourselves for that manipulation. We Dems aren't going to fall for it.

Florida begins counting its mail-in ballots before election day, and hopefully, Biden will be so far ahead in Florida that we can call it election night. From my understanding, it's nearly impossible for Trump to win without Florida.

There may well be a "red mirage" victory for trump in that most gop vote in person and those votes will get tallied right away. As the days go on and the mail-in ballots which are predominantly democratic get counted, trumps "lead" will evaporate. He can declare himself the winner, argue that it's fraud that's led to the winnowing of his lead and say he is *protecting* democracy from a fraudulent election by standing up to a democratic "coup" and refuse to concede. He's already been prepping for that with his declarations of mail-in ballot fraud despite the lack of evidence for it. This could easily end up being a court case as his gaggle of lawyers will find all kinds of things to challenge in swing states. If it ends up in the SC, then with the court packed as it will be by election day, trump wins no matter how the votes count.

He can claim anything he wants but he still has to prove fraud. A state's totals need to be close enough to warrant a recount where they look for ballot issues, find them, and it changes the outcome.

In Florida in 2000, the vote was so close--only 2000 votes apart, so there was a recount. Trump can ask for a state to recount if the margin is within a particular range. That's what Jill Stein did when PA, MI, and WI recounted their votes. He can't stop the vote counting itself.

Elias talked about the Supreme Court case they recently won in WI where they were only planning on counting votes received by election day, not postmarked on election day. That should hold true for all states but I don't know if each state would have to be sued post-election and if it would be retroactive to 2020. He did say he has 35 court cases pending so he hopes most of the litigation is pre-election, leaving little left to litigate after the election, though he does expect some lawsuits.

I keep remembering a guy...of course not the details....but he was one of these guys who run scenarios for the intelligence services. They brought some gop and some dem higher ups together to run scenarios of how trump might retain power, and what he said was clear was that the dems totally underestimated just how far the gop would go to retain power. What the dems were preparing for in the scenarios was well short of how far the gop was willing to go.

So to tell me that trump has to prove fraud doesn't fly for me...how difficult will it be for him to prove fraud if it's heard in lower courts he's already packed, if the evidence is provided by barr & co who have already shown how far they will go to meet trump's desires, and if it ends up in the packed SC.

The 270towin consensus electoral map has Biden at 290 with sure, likely, leans Blue states. It has Trump at 163 with sure, likely, leans Red states, leaving 85 electoral votes up for grabs. Even if Trump gets all of those (not likely) he’s only at 248.

Here's some good information on what to expect from each state:

Several battleground states – some accustomed to high-volume mail-voting
and others that start processing absentee ballots weeks before Nov. 3 –
are expected to have substantial shares of their votes counted and
reported on election night and into the next morning.

Those states include Florida, which begins
processing mail ballots 22 days before the election; Arizona, which
starts that process two weeks before the election; North Carolina, which
started processing ballots on Sept. 29; and Texas.

Although
Texas is not among states that expanded mail-voting to all voters
during the pandemic, its largest counties can begin processing absentee
ballots 12 days before the election. Georgia, which did make mail-voting
available to all voters, allows the processing of ballots to begin two
weeks in advance. Ohio started processing mail ballots last week. In
Iowa, counties can start opening the outer envelopes on absentee ballots
the Saturday before Election Day.

Each is in contrast to three critical Rust Belt states – Pennsylvania,
Wisconsin and Michigan – where election officials must wait until
Election Day, or in Michigan's case, 10 hours before the election,
before they can open mail ballots and begin counting. These three states
are expected to be counting millions of absentee ballots days after
polls close.

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, 4 out of 5 Arizonans voted by
mail. The state won't have results instantly, according to Volgy, a
former Democratic mayor of Tucson, but the winner of Arizona could be
known by the next morning. Recent polls in Arizona, which hasn't voted
Democrat in a presidential election since 1996, have Biden ahead 2 to 8
percentage points.

Texas early voting is running the same as in 2016 but look at Ohio. They've been voting for a week.

  • Black voters currently account for a slightly larger share of early votes compared to four years ago – 15% now vs. 11% then.
  • White voters, meanwhile, make up a slightly smaller share of ballots already
    cast in the Buckeye State, comprising 82% of early votes so far compared
    to 86% at this point in 2016.
  • Voters 65 or older in Ohio comprise a smaller percentage of those who have returned ballots so far than they did at this point in 2016.
  • This age group’s share has dropped from 61% of the pre-Election Day ballots at this point in 2016 to 47% currently. All other age blocs have seen upticks in their shares of the early vote compared to 2016.

No, the assertion is "the GOP has made it clear that not everyone should have the right to vote and not everyone's vote should count."The poster offers no evidence of the GOP making any such claim.

And in answer to your question, I said they made it clear by their actions.

Then I provided actions they've taken to suppress democratic leaning votes such as:

There are many more examples. So if the GOP is actively suppressing votes and especially of those not likely to vote GOP, then clearly they don't respect the rights of voters to vote and have every vote count. They support it only if they vote gop.

Olychick, Texas counties are back to one ballot box:

After a federal judge struck down Abbott’s restriction last week, a
three-judge panel on the fifth circuit court of appeals put that
decision on hold while the case made its way through the appeal process.
They wrote that Abbott had actually expanded opportunities to vote
recently. In that context, only allowing one place for voters to leave
their ballots, the judges said, did not amount to a severe burden on the
right to vote.

“One strains to see how it burdens voting at all,” the panel, all of
whom were appointed to the bench by Donald Trump, wrote in their
opinion. “
The proclamation is part of the governor’s expansion of
opportunities to cast an absentee ballot in Texas.”

Bolding is mine.

Judge Amy Coney Barrett is up for a nomination to the Supreme Court, and her hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee have been a complete farce. As Perry Bacon, Jr. writes at FiveThirtyEight, she dodged practically every single question — refusing to even entertain hypothetical questions about abortion, gun rights, whether Medicare is constitutional, or if President Trump could somehow move the election date.

Yet we can be quite confident that Barrett is lying through her teeth about most of those supposed non-opinions. Her record shows her to be a paint-blisteringly reactionary jurist who will reliably enact conservative policy preferences through judicial fiat. If she is confirmed to the court, the main question on how far these conservative judicial legislators will go is whether they will tactically pull back for fear of political backlash.

Barrett has learned well from Trump and the rest of the Republican Party, which camouflages its stupendously unpopular policy views by lying constantly about them....

He then demonstrates the gap between gop policy and national polling on some key issues: environmental legislation; entitlements; reproductive rights; taxation. Then concludes:

Probably some of the Republican Party understands that they are edging quite far out on a political limb by supporting such wretchedly unpopular policies — thus the constant lies. That's also a big reason why they are constantly trying to cheat elections by any means to hand.

But many ordinary American voters, both moderates and Trump supporters, end up deluded about what the GOP actually supports. Polls, focus groups, and reporting has repeatedly found substantial chunks of voters who straight-up refuse to believe the Republican Party program is as extreme as it is. "There is not a single guy or woman who would run for president that would make it so that pre-existing conditions wouldn’t be covered," one foolish Trump supporter told The New York Times. The lying works, it seems, in concert with a media that compulsively downplays conservative extremism so as to appear fair and balanced.

But make no mistake: If Trump wins in November, the environment, abortion rights, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and even a smidgen of economic equality will all be on the chopping block.

I just want to add a key form of cheating for which trump is not being held accountable: seeking and getting aid from foreign countries. We saw that with his request for help trashing Biden from Ukraine, even holding up payments to them which is against the law....not to mention an abuse of power and corruption to pervert US policy to his personal benefit. We saw it in the help he got from russia in 2016 and his refusal to say *anything* against putin while doing him major US policy favors. Now we are seeing it again with this server.

Maybe....maybe you could argue that trump&co were unwittingly helped by russia and they didn't know better...even though the FBI warned them that they would become targets of russia and they should report any contacts...which they never did.

But this time around, not only are they aware of 2016, not only were they warned in 2019 that giuliani would be a target of russian intelligence, they went ahead with it anyway! In clear violation of the law! They are lying to the American people about it, and they are accepting russia's help to do it.

That is cheating.

And perhaps the biggest cheat of all?

He's not filled vacancies on the FEC so they can't reach a quorum to charge anyone with campaign finance violations. That's why he's so willing to go anywhere he wants with it...there's nothing the FEC can do to him.

If anyone thinks we don't *need* a huge blue wave to get rid of trump, you're wrong. All the cheating he's doing means that close won't cut it. It has to be so decisive a loss that he won't even bother to question it.

Vote. Vote. Vote!
