One way or the other, life in America will never be the same after this…

How in the world will it be possible for America to have a bright future when about half the country is going to feel like the election has been stolen from them no matter what the final outcome is?  There simply isn’t going to be any going back to the way that things were for the last four years.  At this moment, tens of millions of Trump supporters believe that the Democrats stole the election.  But if the courts agree with Trump’s legal team and Trump ends up getting a second term, tens of millions of Biden supporters will be convinced that Republicans stole the election.  Either way, we are going to be a nation that is full of deeply angry people.

Right now, the mainstream media is assuming that Biden is going to be president.  But the reality of the matter is that we are going to end up with either Donald Trump or Kamala Harris in the White House.  Even if Biden is inaugurated, his rapidly deteriorating physical condition will not allow him to serve for very long.  Whether it is a matter of years, months or days, everyone knows that a Biden administration will simply just be a bridge to a Harris administration.

If Trump’s legal challenges are not successful and Biden ultimately emerges victorious, Trump supporters should actually be praying really hard for Biden’s health, because things will actually go much worse for them under a Harris administration.  I believe that Biden will at least try to maintain the facade that he is attempting to “unify” the nation, but once he is out of the picture Harris won’t hesitate to bring the hammer down on her opposition.

Harris was rated the most liberal member of the U.S. Senate during her time there.  Yes, that makes her even more liberal than Bernie Sanders.  And when she was the attorney general of California, she showed how utterly ruthless she can be at times.

During the general election, she tried to show a softer side, but it didn’t really fool anyone.  We all remember the far left policies that she embraced during her ill-fated run for the presidency, and her record as attorney general of California clearly demonstrates her authoritarian tendencies.

Of course many Trump supporters are hoping that a Harris administration will never materialize because Trump wins a second term.  And without a doubt, that is definitely possible.  On Tuesday night, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany showed Sean Hannity a stack of 234 pages of sworn affidavits from people that have testified that they witnessed election fraud in their states.  Each day more evidence of voting irregularities continues to emerge, and I am sure that there will be more bombshells tomorrow.

But the clock is ticking.  As I discussed earlier today, the Electoral College is going to cast their votes on December 14th, and any disputes regarding the selection of electors must be resolved by December 8th.

So that means that Trump’s legal team has less than a month to flip the results in enough states to give Trump the victory, and that is going to be an exceedingly difficult task.

But for a moment, let’s assume that Trump’s legal team is successful.

Do you think that the left is just going to back down and accept four more years of Trump peacefully?

Just put yourself in their shoes.  The mainstream media has been telling them over and over that they won the election legitimately and that there is “absolutely no evidence” of election fraud.  When the big news networks called the election for Biden, they laughed, they cried and they danced in the streets.  For many on the left, it was as if Christmas, their birthdays, and the 4th of July had arrived all at once.

Can you imagine how much fury they are going to feel if Trump’s legal team is able to flip state after state and swing the final outcome back in the other direction?

It would definitely be enough to convince many of them that a peaceful solution is no longer possible.  I believe that we would see violence in our streets on a permanent basis from this point forward, and it would be far worse than any of the civil unrest that we have witnessed so far.

Like I said, there is no going back to how things were before.

Either a Biden administration will be a bridge to an absolutely ruthless far left Harris administration, or a second term for Trump will cause the left to go absolutely bezerk.

I don’t see any other option at this point.

Do you?

As it stands, we still do not know who is going to win.  According to the U.S. Constitution, it is the Electoral College that elects the president, and that election is not going to be held until December 14th.

So nobody should be claiming the title of “president-elect” yet.  You can’t be a “president-elect” when the election hasn’t even happened.

Yes, if we get to December 8th and Joe Biden is still leading in the vote count in the states that he is currently leading, it will appear that time will have run out for the Trump campaign.

But 234 pages of sworn affidavits is nothing to scoff at, and I am sure that Trump’s legal team is working night and day to uncover even more evidence of potential fraud.

It would take the biggest legal miracle in U.S. election history for Trump to pull this off, but it is definitely still possible.

Right now, we are still playing a waiting game.  Most Trump supporters still think that Trump will end up winning, and most Biden supporters are absolutely convinced that they have this election in the bag.

But once the votes have been cast by the Electoral College, there will be no going back, and the sheer horror of what has happened will start to sink in for about half the country.

No matter what the outcome is, the years ahead are going to be incredibly painful as our society literally comes apart at the seams all around us.

After everything that has already taken place, nobody is going to be able to “bring us together”, and life in America will never be the same again.

What is at stake is so much more than just this election…

If we don’t stand up now, we may not ever get another chance.  I haven’t written much since the day of the election, and that is because like most people I have been transfixed by the bizarre drama that is unfolding on the national stage right now.  An election is literally being stolen right in front of our eyes, and if we allow them to get away with this there won’t be any limits to what they think they can get away with in the future.  I have been writing about election fraud for many, many years, but in the past it was always more subtle.  Unfortunately, they were not so subtle this time around.  Here in 2020, they were so desperate to prevent another four years of Trump that they decided to dramatically overplay their hand.  In Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, Trump had huge leads throughout most of the counting, but in each case a massive surge of Biden votes right at the end made all the difference.  And even though voter turnout was fairly normal in much of the nation, we are told that unprecedented turnout in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit and Milwaukee was enough to push Biden over the top.

It is being projected that when the counting is all said and done Biden will have received about 80 million votes.

A candidate that couldn’t even fill up a parking lot at any of his so-called “campaign rallies” is on track to receive about 15 million more votes than Hillary Clinton did in 2016.

But I suppose it is not too difficult to come up with 15 million additional votes if you allow dead people to send in ballots.

Mail-in voting has completely changed the game, because it has made it possible to commit fraud on an industrial scale.

And if they get away with it, they will just keep on doing it election after election.  As U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham just told Fox News, there is a possibility that “there will never be another Republican president elected again”

“If Republicans don’t challenge and change the U.S. election system, there will never be another Republican president elected again,” Graham said Sunday on Fox News.

I would actually phrase it a little differently.

If we don’t stand up now, I don’t think that we will ever see another “anti-establishment president” ever again.

Our corporate overlords own politicians in both parties, but the reason why they hated Trump so much is because they could not control him.

They were so sure that Hillary Clinton was going to win in 2016 that I think they were caught off guard by the very late Trump surge that propelled him to victory.

But this time around they weren’t taking any chances.  In Pennsylvania, Senator Graham says that Trump’s team is discovering that lots of people apparently voted long after they passed away

“So, what happened? The Trump team has canvassed all early voters and absentee mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania. And they have found over 100 people they think were dead, but 15 people that we verified that have been dead who voted,” Graham alleged. “But here is the one that gets me. Six people registered after they died and voted. In Pennsylvania, I guess you’re never out of it.”

These claims need to be investigated and verified, and the voter rolls in all of the swing states need to be sifted through with a fine-tooth comb.

If there was widespread malfeasance, those involved need to be prosecuted and sent to prison for a very long time.

And any votes that were illegally cast need to be thrown out.

Maybe that will be enough to swing the election to Trump, but maybe it won’t be.

In the end, what we want is an election that is fair, because that is what the American people deserve.

If we do not guard the integrity of our elections, the vast majority of the American people will soon completely lose faith in the system, and it will just be a matter of time before it collapses.

Earlier today, I came across an article that was authored by one middle-aged woman that is completely fed up with the process.  Like me, she grew up in a middle class area and she was raised to love this country

I was born at the end of Gen X and the beginning of the Millennial Generation, and grew up in a middle class town. Life was good. Our home was modest but birthdays and Christmas were always generous, we went on yearly vacations, had 2 cars, and there was enough money for me to take dance classes and art lessons and be in Girl Scouts.

My 1940s born Dad raised me to be patriotic and proud, to love the war bird airplanes of his era as much as he does, and to respect our flag and our country as a sacred thing. I grew up thinking that being an American was the greatest gift a person could have. I grew up thinking that our country was as strong, and honest and true as my Dad. I grew up thinking I was free.

If our system was fair, I am sure that she would be at the front of the line to defend it.

But after watching how this election is being stolen, she is pledging to never vote again

And now I have watched as people who hate me and mine and call for our destruction blatantly and openly stole the election and then gaslighted us and told us that it was honest and fair. I am watching as the GOP does NOTHING about it. They’re probably relieved that upstart Trump is gone so they can get back to their real jobs of lining their pockets and running interference for their corporate masters. I am watching as the media, in a manner that would make Stalin blush, is silencing anyone who dares question the legitimacy of this farce they call democracy. I know, it’s a republic, but I am so tired of explaining that to people I might as well give in and join them in ignorance.

I will not vote again; they’ve made it abundantly clear that my voice doesn’t matter.

There are tens of millions of other Americans just like her.

All we want is for the elections to be fair.

If Joe Biden is the winner of a free and fair election, I am completely okay with that.

I really am.

No matter what the consequences, I believe that the American people should be free to choose the future course of this nation.

But this election was not fair, and everyone can see that.

We shall see what happens over the next couple of months.  If this farce of an election is allowed to stand, tens of millions of Americans will permanently lose faith in our system, and we can start counting down the days to the end of our Republic.

A 7 point plan to fix our elections

Whether you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent, everyone should be able to agree that this election has exposed some very serious flaws in the way that we are currently doing things.  Over the past 24 hours, I have been posting example after example of voting irregularities on The Most Important News, and this is probably the number one topic on social media right now.  When this election is finally over, there are going to be tens of millions of voters that feel like this election has been stolen from them and that will have completely lost faith in the system.  As much as some of the talking heads on television would like to believe that everything will be okay if they simply ignore the irregularities that are happening, the truth is that the vast majority of Americans can clearly see what is taking place.  It has never been more obvious that our system is deeply broken and desperately in need of major reform.

For this election, problems with our elections will need to be resolved in court, and that is extremely unfortunate.

But we definitely do not want to find ourselves in the same situation four years from now, if there is actually an election four years from now.

So with that in mind, I would like to submit my humble plan to fix our elections…

#1 In order to register to vote, citizens must be required to show up in person and show identification proving that they are who they say they are to a duly appointed government official.

#2 Citizens should be required to show up in person to vote to the greatest degree possible.  And when they show up in person to vote, they must be required to show identification proving that they are who they say they are.

#3 All political parties must be allowed to have numerous poll watchers in all polling locations.

#4 Once you have voted, citizens should be given a receipt that shows that their votes were recorded and that shows exactly who they voted for.

#5 All political parties must be allowed to have numerous observers in all locations where ballots are counted, and they must be allowed to be close enough to be able to clearly see what is happening.

#6 All votes should be made public.  I know that many would mourn the loss of the “secret ballot”, but I believe the need for transparency should take priority.  Every vote from every citizen should be posted publicly, along with verification that each of those citizens was officially registered to vote.

#7 For national elections, results for each state should only be made public once the counting is entirely completed.  I know that having the vote totals come in a little at a time is a lot more dramatic, but it also opens up opportunities for malfeasance.  In the 2020 election, there have been allegations that some counties have delayed reporting their results until they could see how other areas have voted.  It is very important that we eliminate that.

As it stands, our elections are more broken than ever.  Ballot harvesting is rampant all over the country, lots of dead people are voting, in some areas the number of people that are voting greatly exceeds the number of registered voters, and having tens of millions of ballots go through the mail has caused all sorts of problems.

Of course I don’t anticipate that the recommendations that I have made will ever be instituted.  In particular, Democrats would fight tooth and nail against many of my proposals, and that is because the flaws in the current system tend to benefit their party greatly.

But if we don’t fix our system, an increasing number of Americans will lose faith in it with each passing election, and it will be just a matter of time until it completely collapses.

In addition to everything else, I believe that paper ballots should be required everywhere in the whole country.  I would like to see the U.S. go to a system of 100 percent paper ballots and 100 percent manual counting, but that will never happen either.

If we can’t have faith in the integrity of our elections, what options do we have left?

We have reached such a critical time in our history, and our nation is now more divided than it has ever been in my entire lifetime.

I honestly do now know how the U.S. is ever going to recover from this chaotic election.  There is no way that any politician is going to be able to bring the country together when close to half the population believes that the election was stolen.

Whoever becomes president, nearly half the nation is not going to accept that individual as legitimate, and at this point the U.S. is getting dangerously close to being ungovernable.

As I have discussed previously, for the losing side this election is going to be the greatest emotional blow in decades.  Everything has changed, and the days ahead are likely to be very dark for the United States of America.

An election where (almost) everybody loses?

This election did not go the way that most people were anticipating.  For months, the mainstream media and many on the left insisted that the big national polls were right this time and that a Joe Biden landslide was coming.  Obviously, that did not happen.  On the other hand, many on the right kept telling us that a huge Trump landslide was coming, and that did not materialize either.  Instead, we got the very close race that I have been warning about for weeks.  I kept explaining to my readers that we would not know the winner on the night of the election, and that projection turned out to be right on the money.  At this hour, votes are still being counted in critical swing states all over the nation, and things could still go either way.  I know that the mainstream media is eager to crown Joe Biden the victor, but that hasn’t happened yet.  Trump’s campaign team still believes that the final results in Arizona and Nevada will go their way, and they are convinced that could potentially change everything.  We will just have to wait and see what happens.

But for now, things are not looking promising for the Trump campaign.  By the time many of you read this, more of the votes will have been counted and the mainstream media may have decided to call the race for Biden.  If that happens, this could be perhaps the first national election in U.S. history where almost everybody loses.

Let me illustrate what I mean.  Here are some of the potential losers in this election…

The U.S. political system – The legitimacy of our system is on the line in this election, and the rest of the world is watching us very carefully.  Sadly, the way that this election has unfolded has been a complete and utter disgrace, and close to half the country is going to believe that the election was stolen once this is all over.

On Tuesday evening, it appeared that President Trump was cruising toward re-election.  He had huge leads in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and North Carolina, and the Trump campaign was getting ready to put on a victory celebration.  But then vote counting suddenly stopped in Democratic strongholds all over the nation.  Once it resumed, some very strange things started to happen.

For example, a large Trump lead in Wisconsin was suddenly wiped out by a massive vote dump for Biden right at the last minute, and Biden ended up being declared the winner in that state.

Likewise, a large Trump lead in Michigan was suddenly wiped out by a massive vote dump for Biden right at the end of their vote count.

As I write this article, we are seeing similar patterns play out in Pennsylvania and Georgia.  Initially, it appeared that Trump had an insurmountable lead in both states, but by the time you read this article the mainstream media may have called both states for Biden.

It may or may not have been intentional, but a lot of people are speculating that Democratic strongholds such as Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Atlanta held back on counting many of their votes until vote totals from most of the conservative areas came in, and to many people it looks extremely suspicious that Biden keeps squeaking out very tight victories in the most critical swing states.

The polling industry – This is the second presidential election in a row when the polling industry has failed dramatically.  Last night, Van Jones almost came to tears on CNN because he was so disappointed that the “blue wave” that the national polling had suggested was coming did not materialize.  I don’t know how anyone is going to trust the national polls in future elections after how wrong they got it this time around.

The mainstream media – Throughout this election season, the mainstream media has discarded any pretense of objectivity, and in the process they have deeply alienated a large portion of the population.  At this point, everyone can see that the mainstream media has essentially become an arm of the Democratic Party, and they are never going to be able to restore the credibility that they have lost.

Democrats – This was supposed to be the election when Democrats finally took back the Senate and strengthened their hold on the House of Representatives.  Instead, it appears likely that Republicans will hold the Senate, and Democrats could end up losing up to 10 seats in the House.

Republicans – Yes, Republicans performed better than expected all over the country, but losing the White House definitely cannot be considered a victory.

Donald Trump – This is not the way that Trump and his supporters envisioned that the MAGA era would end.  As I discussed the other day, a Trump loss would be the worst emotional blow that conservatives in this country have suffered in decades.

Joe Biden – You would think that Biden should be labeled a “winner” if he ends up becoming the president-elect.  But if Republicans hold the Senate, they will be able to block everything that Biden and the Democrats want to do.  Biden has been waiting 47 years to finally get to the White House, but when he finally gets there he will be forced to get Republican permission for any bill that he wants passed.

The American people – When this is finally over, the American people will be left with a political system that is in shambles, a country that is more divided than ever, and a deeply corrupt politician that is no longer all there mentally as president.

So are there any winners?

Yes.

Coming out of this election there will be one big winner, and her name is Kamala Harris.

Everyone acknowledges that it is just a matter of time before Biden will have to step aside.  Personally, I expect it to happen sooner rather than later.

Whenever that happens, Kamala Harris will become the president of the United States, and she is very much looking forward to that day.

Of course once that day arrives, it will actually be a complete and utter nightmare for about half the country.

In the end, it appears that nothing good is going to come out of this election, and our nation will never be the same again from this day forward.

If Trump wins, it will be the greatest political miracle in U.S. history

Four years ago, I went on national television just prior to the election and declared that if Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton it would be the greatest political miracle in the history of the United States, and that is precisely what we got.  Trump miraculously won the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin by a combined total of less than 100,000 votes, and he won the presidency even though Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by a margin of nearly 3 million.  Well, now here we are again.  Joe Biden’s lead in the national polls is even greater than the lead that Hillary Clinton had in 2016, and if Trump ends up winning it will be an even greater political miracle than we witnessed four years ago.

Could it happen?

Yes, there is a very real possibility that Trump could win, and I explained exactly how it could unfold in an article that I posted yesterday.

But it won’t be easy.

Let’s take a look at how Trump is faring in the most critical swing states compared to where he stood just before the last election.

-In 2016, the final RealClearPolitics average of Florida polls had Trump up by 0.2 points, but in 2020 the current RCP average of Florida polls has him trailing Biden by 1.8 points.

-In 2016, the final RealClearPolitics average of North Carolina polls had Trump up by 1.0 points, but in 2020 the current RCP average of North Carolina polls has him up by just 0.2 points.

-In 2016, the final RealClearPolitics average of Arizona polls had Trump up by 4.0 points, but in 2020 the current RCP average of Arizona polls has him trailing Biden by 0.9 points.

-In 2016, the final RealClearPolitics average of Wisconsin polls had Trump down by 6.5 points, but in 2020 the current RCP average of Wisconsin polls has him trailing Biden by 6.7 points.

-In 2016, the final RealClearPolitics average of Michigan polls had Trump down by 3.4 points, but in 2020 the current RCP average of Michigan polls has him trailing Biden by 5.1 points.

-In 2016, the final RealClearPolitics average of Pennsylvania polls had Trump losing by 1.9 points, but in 2020 the current RCP average of Pennsylvania polls has him trailing Biden by 2.6 points.

So Trump is theoretically doing worse in each of those key swing states that he was in 2016.

Like I said, it is going to take a bigger miracle than we witnessed four years ago for Trump to pull this off, but it could definitely happen.

On election night itself, the most important state to focus on will be Florida.  As I discussed in a previous article, Florida is one of the states that allows mail-in ballots to be counted in advance, and we should have a really good idea of what the results are going to look like in the state by the end of the night.

If Biden is declared the winner in Florida on election night, that is going to be a really, really bad sign for Trump.  There really isn’t a path to 270 electoral votes for Trump without Florida.

If Trump wins Florida, or if the vote is too close to call, then Pennsylvania becomes crucially important.

Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is one of the states that does not allow mail-in ballots to be counted in advance, and they are going to have millions of them to count.

At this point, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf is openly admitting that “it may take longer than usual to count every vote”

‘These are unprecedented times. Because of the coronavirus, there were millions of votes cast by mail so it may take longer than usual to count every vote,’ he says in a new ad for the nonpartisan group, The Voter Project.

‘The folks in our election offices – your neighbors, family and friends are working hard ensuring every single vote is counted,’ he says.

Pennsylvania is supposed to have every vote counted by Friday, but I am deeply skeptical that will actually happen.

In fact, it is now being reported that there are seven Pennsylvania counties that will not even begin counting mail-in ballots until Wednesday

Seven out of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties will wait to count mail-in ballots until the day after the election, according to local officials, potentially delaying when media organizations will be able to project a winner in the state.

Pennsylvania allows for counties to begin processing mail-in ballots the morning of Election Day, but officials in Beaver, Cumberland, Franklin, Greene, Juniata, Mercer and Montour — all counties which voted for Donald Trump in 2016 — said that concerns over staffing and resources led them to delay when they will count mail ballots.

Adding to the mess is the fact that any mail-in ballot without a “secrecy envelope” in Pennsylvania must automatically be rejected.  This is something that I discussed yesterday, and FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver is acknowledging that this could become a big issue

“Among the votes that were sent in by mail, there are some provisions about a naked ballot, a security envelope. That could make things more complicated. You could have the courts involved. You have some protests, looting in Philadelphia. There’s lots of stuff going on.”

If Biden loses Florida and then he loses the count in Pennsylvania, at that point it becomes more likely than not that Trump will emerge victorious.

All along, the Biden campaign has been anticipating that Trump will have a lead on election night but that the mail-in ballots will eventually swing the contest their way.  But what they didn’t anticipate was that the flood of ballots coming through the mail would absolutely overwhelm the U.S. Postal Service

For the third day in a row, the US Postal Service moved fewer ballots on-time in critical battleground states than it did in the previous day, according to new court filings Sunday.

With Election Day only two days away, these continued drops in performance mean ballots are now at significant risk of not arriving to election offices in time to get counted. In a majority of states, mail ballots postmarked before or on Election Day don’t count if they arrive after the polls close.

The deadlines are different in every state, but in each case any ballots that do not get delivered by the deadline will not be counted.

Americans are famous for putting things off, and it appears that millions upon millions of people are trying to get their ballots in at the last minute.

Yesterday I warned that there could potentially be millions of late ballots that do not get counted, and I continue to stand by that assessment.

And since Biden voters are more than twice as likely to vote by mail as Trump voters are, the vast majority of the late ballots that do not get counted will be from Biden supporters.

In the end, that could be enough to deliver a victory for President Trump.

It may not look like the miracle that Trump supporters were expecting, but it would be a miracle nonetheless.

As I have stated in so many other articles, I am not predicting the outcome of the election one way or the other.

But what I am saying is that it is going to take the biggest political miracle in U.S. history for Trump to win, and the U.S. Postal Service may end up being the delivery vehicle for that miracle.

2 huge reasons why Joe Biden could lose that hardly anyone is talking about

Most people have been assuming that the big national polls have to be wrong in order for Joe Biden to lose this election.  But in this article I am going to explain why the big national polls could be 100 percent accurate and Joe Biden could still lose.  In this election, there could potentially be millions of votes that are cast by mail for Joe Biden that do not get counted.  Some mail-in ballots will not be counted because they are rejected for one reason or another, and others will not be counted because they were simply sent in too late.  As I will discuss in this article, combining those two factors together could be more than enough to deliver victory for President Trump.

Throughout this election season, Democrats have been aggressively promoting voting by mail.

Ironically, that could end up being the exact reason why they lose this election.

I am not predicting the outcome of this race one way or the other, but if the Democrats come up short they will only have themselves to blame.

In a previous article, I discussed the fact that surveys have shown that Biden supporters are more than twice as likely to vote by mail as Trump supporters are.  But those that vote by mail are in significant danger of not having their votes counted for a couple of reasons.

First of all, large numbers of ballots are rejected by officials for various reasons in every election.  And because so many Americans are voting by mail in 2020, it is being projected that more than a million mail-in ballots could potentially be rejected this time around…

Absentee ballot rejections this November are projected to reach historic levels, risking widespread disenfranchisement of minority voters and the credibility of election results, a USA TODAY, Columbia Journalism Investigations and PBS series FRONTLINE investigation found.

At least 1.03 million absentee ballots could be tossed if half of the nation votes by mail. Discarded votes jump to 1.55 million if 75% of the country votes absentee. In the latter scenario, more than 185,000 votes could be lost in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – states considered key to capturing the White House.

Because Biden supporters are far more likely to vote by mail, the vast majority of those rejected ballots will be coming from Biden supporters.

In particular, a unique rule in Pennsylvania could be especially painful for the Biden campaign.  For this election, any ballot that is sent in without a “secrecy envelope” will automatically be rejected.  The following comes from NPR

A Pennsylvania court has introduced a strict new rule for voters in what is perhaps the most important swing state in the United States.

The state sends out an extra “secrecy” envelope with all its mail ballots. And the court has now decided that if voters forget to include that envelope when they return their ballots — an error that’s being termed a “naked ballot” — their votes will be automatically void.

So how many votes could potentially be rejected because of this rule?

Well, one official has estimated that 100,000 ballots could be thrown out statewide…

Philadelphia officials tracked the issue in the 2019 general election and said over 6% of the absentee ballots they received were missing secrecy envelopes. That election came before a significant expansion of the state’s mail-voting laws, so the county received only a fraction of the mailed ballots it will in this year’s election.

Lisa Deeley, a Philadelphia city commissioner, used the percentage to extrapolate the impact that blanket naked-ballot rejections might have statewide. She came up with an attention-grabbing number100,000 ballots could be invalidated.

In the end, that could be enough to put the state of Pennsylvania in Trump’s column.

And as I keep telling my readers, whoever wins Pennsylvania is probably going to win the presidency.

Secondly, there are millions of mail-in ballots floating around out there that won’t be sent in on time or that won’t be sent in at all.

According to the latest numbers, more than 59 million mail-in ballots have been returned, but more than 31 million mail-in ballots have not been returned.

Voters will continue to send in more mail-in ballots with each passing day, and most of them will fully believe that their votes will be counted.

But in many states it is already too late to send in ballots.  In fact, CNN warned that it was probably already too late to send in ballots back on October 29th

Do this math: USPS says it needs seven days to safely deliver ballots. We’re five days out from November 3.

Bottom line: If you’ve got a mail-in ballot, you probably shouldn’t mail it.

In the end, both campaigns could potentially lose millions of votes because ballots were mailed too late, but Biden will lose far more than Trump will because Biden supporters are much more likely to vote by mail.

On top of everything else, serious mail delays are now being reported all over the country because of the massive number of ballots that are going through the system.

In particular, mail delivery in the Philadelphia area has gotten extremely slow

Timely mail delivery across Pennsylvania took a drastic turn for the worse in just the last two weeks amid a glut of voting by mail, according to U.S. Postal Service data filed Wednesday in federal court.

In Philadelphia, 42% of all first-class mail is taking longer than five days to be delivered.

Needless to say, Democrats are counting on Philadelphia voters in a major way, but if large numbers of ballots are not delivered on time that could cripple their hopes.

President Trump may not have realized it initially, but he was doing exactly the right thing by strongly urging his voters to vote in person.  Any votes that are cast in person will be counted, but voting by mail is going to be a hit or miss proposition in 2020.

Ultimately, Joe Biden may still end up winning, but without a doubt it was a gigantic strategic mistake to promote voting by mail so heavily.

When it is all over, the Biden campaign may look back and see that they had millions of additional voters that actually wanted to vote for their candidate.  But in order to count, any votes must follow proper procedure and they must be delivered on time.

If Trump wins, I believe that the reasons I have discussed in this article are likely to be the deciding factor, and most of the talking heads on television will never even realize what happened.

Why President Trump should have a huge lead on the night of the election

Does that headline surprise you?  In this article, I am not predicting the eventual outcome of the presidential election.  Rather, I am going to discuss what is likely to happen based on which votes will be counted first.  Normally, Americans gather around their televisions on the evening of the election to watch the votes come in and the mainstream media declares a winner by the end of the night.  But it won’t be that way this time around.  More than 52 million Americans have already voted by mail in this election, and that number will keep rising with each passing day.  It is going to take extra time to count all of those mail-in ballots, and that is going to cause significant delays in getting final election results from many states.

According to a survey conducted by Pew Research, Trump supporters are more than twice as likely to vote in person on Election Day than Biden supporters are, and Biden supporters are more than twice as likely to vote by mail as Trump supporters are…

Trump supporters are more than twice as likely as Biden supporters to say they plan to vote in person on Election Day (50% vs. 20%). By contrast, 51% of Biden supporters say they plan to vote by mail or absentee (or have already voted this way). A quarter of Trump supporters (25%) say they plan to vote by mail or absentee.

This will be so important to keep in mind while you are watching coverage of the election on the evening of November 3rd, because the votes that get counted first will determine which candidate is initially leading in each state.

According to Ballotpedia, there are 13 states which allow mail-in ballots to be counted early…

  • Arizona
  • Colorado
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Hawaii
  • Maryland
  • Montana
  • Nebraska
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • North Carolina
  • Oregon
  • Vermont

And there are another 6 states that “either do not specify when ballot counting can begin or leave the decision to the discretion of local officials”…

  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Ohio
  • Oklahoma
  • Utah

In these 19 states, the mail-in ballots and the early in person ballots will be the first votes counted, and those votes will favor Biden.

Yes, it is quite likely that Biden could jump out to large leads in red states like Oklahoma and Utah, but in the end he will not win either of those states.

On the other hand, there are 31 states that do not allow early counting of mail-in ballots.  In most of those states, the votes that are cast on Election Day will make up the bulk of the early results, and so the initial vote counts should favor President Trump in those cases.

This group of states includes the critical swing states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.  As I have discussed previously, whoever wins Pennsylvania is probably going to win the election, and so we will want to pay special attention to what is going on there.

According to FiveThirtyEight, about two million mail-in ballots have already been returned in Pennsylvania, and officials will not even begin counting them until 7 AM on Election Day…

Take Pennsylvania, arguably the most important swing state this election as it’s currently the likeliest “tipping-point state” in our forecast, or the state that could determine the winner of the Electoral College. About 2 million mail-in ballots have already been returned so far, almost one-third of the total number of votes cast in the state four years ago. But because the state can’t begin processing mail ballots until 7 a.m. on Election Day, it could be awhile before we get full results in Pennsylvania. State officials have said that it could take until Friday to finish counting most ballots.

I am quite skeptical that Pennsylvania will be able to count all the votes by Friday, because it took them two and a half weeks to count all of the mail-in ballots for the Democratic primary earlier this year…

In that election, the more rural and Republican-leaning parts of the state reported a sizable majority of their results on election night, as their votes were disproportionately cast on Election Day. In the state’s more populous and Democratic-leaning areas, it took roughly two and a half weeks to report most of the vote, due to the huge influx of mail-in ballots. As a result, on election night, 3 a.m. Eastern, only 46 percent of the final Democratic presidential primary vote had been reported, compared to 71 percent of the GOP total, based on data from ABC News.

I am sure that Pennsylvania is committing a lot more resources to the general election than they did to the primaries, but there will also be far more ballots to count for the general election.

In any event, President Trump should jump out to huge leads in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and other states where the counting of mail-in ballots will take an extended period of time.

As I discussed in a previous article, there are several steps that must be taken for each mail-in ballot, and counting them is a very tedious process.

I think that it was very foolish for so many states to push mail-in voting so heavily for this election, and I believe that it is going to cause some massive problems.

And it is also very important to remember that the states will not even have all of the mail-in ballots in their possession on November 3rd.  Ballots will continue to be accepted after Election Day in many states, and these various deadlines will continue to be the subject of legal battles for weeks to come.

In many instances, the U.S. Supreme Court will get involved.  In fact, they just ruled that Pennsylvania can accept mail-in ballots for up to three days after the election and that North Carolina can accept mail-in ballots for up to nine days after the election.

In a very, very tight race, we could potentially see the outcome decided by ballots that are not even received by North Carolina officials until November 12th.

The longer things drag out, the better it will be for Biden.

But on the night of the election, President Trump should have a lead in the majority of the states.

Needless to say, that will likely cause a tremendous amount of turmoil on the left, and they will be desperately hoping that the counting of the mail-in ballots will eventually flip the election to Biden.
