Trump has refused to accept defeat in the 2020 election, despite Biden's decisive win in the Electoral College and the popular vote. The former vice president has won nearly 80 million votes, which is more votes than any US presidential candidate in history by a considerable margin. Trump has received nearly 74 million votes.

"CNN and other outlets projected Biden won the race nearly two weeks ago, when Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes put Biden above the 270 needed to become president. Biden ultimately is projected to get 306 electoral votes while Trump gets 232, the same amount Trump beat Hillary Clinton by in 2016."

Win, win.

We may get to start liking winning again.

As cutiepie noted, per Paul Waldman:
"[...]here are the margins by which Biden won three critical states, as of Wednesday morning:
Arizona: 10,457
Georgia: 14,028
Wisconsin: 20,565
Total: 45,050
But if Trump had managed to get those 45,000 votes, he would have won 37 more electoral votes, making the electoral college a 269-to-269 tie. Under the Constitution, the election would have then been decided by the House of Representatives [... and]Trump would have been reelected."

This election was way too close and the Repubs have weaponized the Electoral College to the point where they have no concern how much they hurt 70 percent of the country.

The EC has to go. I'm tired of being threatened with it.

Yeah, I cut out that portion from cutiepie's post:

But if Trump had managed to get those 45,000 votes, he would have won 37 more electoral votes, making the electoral college a 269-to-269 tie. Under the Constitution, the election would have then been decided by the House of Representatives, with each state delegation getting just one vote. Even though Democrats have a majority in the House, more state delegations have Republican majorities. Trump would have been reelected."

What's also relevant is that Trump won the EC by 77,000 votes in 2016 and Biden won it by about half that number in 2020. The Republicans have lost the popular vote in seven out of the last eight elections but they won the presidency three times. The EC and its ancillary rules are a completely ridiculous system and its abolition is long overdue.

#8 The house could decide a contested EC, but the speaker can block that and become POTUS. POTUS 46 will be Nancy or Joe.

#9 Not if a patriot rids us of Joe, Kamala, and Pelosi first!

This threat assessment has been brought to you by our justice system, who let the men who planned to kidnap a Governor and conduct executions on live TV out on bail.
