It does suck, doesn’t it?
Plus side: it looks like we’ve held the Senate, and that means that total disaster has been averted. They won’t get to pack the court and make DC a State.
Downside: we’re now in a fight to stop fraud long enough for Trump to get certified for 270. There are some bright spots: Team Trump seems very confident about Arizona and Pennsylvania. Get those two – and hold Georgia and North Carolina (which both look likely) and Trump is at 279. Team Trump has the lawyers and they are already going toe to toe with Team Biden (they’ve demanded a recount in Wisconsin already).
I really don’t know how this will turn out: I hope that Trump prevails, of course. But we know the Democrats are masters of fraud. So, buckle up!
Some bright spots:
Trump’s share of the non-white vote appears to be about 26%, the highest since 1960. 18% of black males voted for Trump. Trump is a refutation of the Democrat’s identity politics and we need to build on this. Push that to 30% and the Democrats don’t have a chance in national elections.
We blew the Democrats away in Florida – they were utterly crushed. Florida is a Red State. Pennsylvania is turning into a Red State. Though we hope Trump wins Arizona, we have to realize that it is turning Blue. What we should do is try to duplicate our efforts in Florida and Pennsylvania in other Blue States. It can be done. It may take years: but we have to do it. We can’t let the Democrats have a bunch of States where we can’t even try.
We picked up House Seats – and if Biden wins (shudder), we’ll blow the Democrats out of the water in the 2022 midterms.
