Do please note that there is, at this time, no “official” winner of the US 2020 Presidential election. That will happen only when all the electors have voted, and their vote is confirmed. That’s scheduled to happen on January 6th, 2021, when a joint session of Congress will count the electoral votes and declare the election result. Prior to that, all state electors must be confirmed by the Governor of their state by December 8th, 2020; and the electors will vote on December 14th, 2020.
The fact that many mainstream media outlets have chosen to proclaim Joe Biden as the winner of the election is irrelevant. The news media have no say in the outcome of this election. It’s a Constitutional matter, and outside their purview. The same applies to “calling” or “declaring” a state for one or the other candidate. The news media may have their opinions on the matter, but those opinions are not necessarily factual, and are not legally binding.
There are serious electoral disputes and a number of problems in several states. I’m obliged to PNN for sharing this electoral map on Gab. It shows how matters truly stand at present, with details of all the states in dispute. Click the map for a larger, more readable view.
Counting all the states where electoral fraud appears to have been a major problem, and those where votes are still being disputed, and those where votes are still being counted, it appears that 98 electoral college votes are still outstanding and/or being legally challenged. President Trump currently has 232 electoral college votes, and needs 38 more to reach 270, the minimum number needed to win the election. Joe Biden has 226 electoral college votes, and needs 44 more to win.
I think legal challenges are going to rumble on right up to the “safe harbor” deadline of December 8th, and probably beyond it. We’re not going to see any quick solution to this mess.
I repeat what I said on Saturday morning: either these electoral disputes must be resolved in the courts, and/or the legislatures of the states involved must appoint the slate of electors for their state, as is specifically provided for in the Constitution. We dare not allow electors who have been appointed through electoral fraud, to decide the future President of the United States. That would destroy our democracy and fatally undermine our Constitution.
As The Federalist puts it:
Nothing has changed since America went to bed Friday evening. There is a fight coming: After over a century of rule, the corruption of the big city Democratic machines will finally be examined in court. Every day, the media is going to call you crazy for demanding it.
