2020 Election Thread (formerly: 2020 Presidential Candidates Thread) (Part 2)

I’m no expert, but going by stuff I see elsewhere on the net, Trump basically has no chance whatsoever.

Michigan and Pennsylvania are set to do so Monday, and Nevada will on Tuesday. Arizona and Wisconsin have certification deadlines next week.

Maybe the anti-rejection drugs are the expensive part.

Christie is this close to realizing that Christie is an idiot.

The problem is that he’s been sitting on that edge for most of his life.

With as often as as hard as the Trump administration stomped on his face - you would think he’d have caught on in the first year.

Dude has no self respect.

The Supreme Court declined to hear arguments relating to the certification in Pennsylvania today, so anyone who thought Trump’s lawyers were playing some brilliant game of 4-dimensional chess to get his case in front of a friendly SCOTUS might want to reevaluate that.

I still hate the false characterization of those mail-in ballots as “late-arriving.” They didn’t arrive late, they arrived on time. They were counted later than the Election Day votes because Pennsylvania GOP leaders prevented them from being counted as they arrived, the way they should.

Agree. All the semantics surrounding our elections are messed up. I hate “early voting” ffs it’s just voting. Also “election day” and so many other misleading descriptions of the process. My wish is we could have a voting period, a counting period, and the results announcement day.

Universal vote-by-mail is the way to go, with ballots counted as they arrive. That’s how you get definitive results on the day-of. That and automatic voter registration so there is little to no confusion about “illegal voting.”

What are the odds that the Supreme Court will actually hear any of the cases? Will they just decline all of them?

Short answer: yes.

in this case i think it’s accurate. it’s about votes received by the post office on election day, and received at the election’s office after. not every state allows that, so they are a special sort of ballot from that perspective

also, it’s interesting that the supreme court didn’t deny the petition they simply didn’t put in on the docket. which is clever. not having to decide on even having to decide.

technically they could still hear it later, and i suppose throw out the certification ( against all precedent ) if they were so inclined
