E-Day +2

We are still waiting on several states and a bunch of folks are crying foul for one reason or another. Granted, there is plenty I would like explained too. Sharpies instead of ink pens not counting when ballots specified ink pens but poll workers handed out sharpies instead is high among them.

The two Michigan related ones are of the 140,000 jump and the reported result vs the SoS certified result are, however, both easily bunk and should not be held onto as cause for a fraud case. The ~140,000 all Biden vote jump was a fat finger input that was corrected to the ~14,000 that it actually was for the reporting county. It was fixed within a few minutes but that didn’t stop screen grabs from immediately hitting the internet airwaves and the meme to be unleashed.

It’s a bunk argument and there is an evidence trail for it. Uncounted or invalid ballots due to poll incompetence might be something but that is something for the recount.

The second is easily explained too as the Secretary of State has the duty to report on the finalized numbers while the media can report ‘reported’ and ‘projected numbers’. In other words the Secretary of State has paperwork to do and file before officially tallying a county where Facebook, the Associated Press, Fox, etc. can just take the number they hear from the pollster and go. This is also why everyone’s election maps look different right now.

Another popular one I am seeing is Wisconsin having “more votes than voters” which is also easily bunk, with an easily found chain of evidence. They were referencing the 2018 voter roll not the Nov 1 2020 voter roll. The number of votes in Wisconsin is less than total voters. This also an avenue Trump supporters should avoid if they do not want to look like fools.

There’s plenty that seems somewhere between sketchy and incompetent out there to want certified. Recounts need to happen and be certified. But as it looks right now we will have a Biden Presidency sworn in with a Republican Senate, a closer but still Democrat House, and a 6-3/5-4 Conservative Supreme Court.

Arizona

Now, I expect Biden to have narrowly won Michigan and Wisconsin even after the recounts. If Nevada gets called for Biden, he is at 270 exactly. But Arizona is still a very close margin as well with 12% votes outstanding. Arizona is currently called for Biden by several locations. If it, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia end up in Trumps hands Trump remains the President.

This will not be over quickly

Harkening back to 2000 and Florida expect this one to take a minute to sort out. This was a very close race, a highly charged and contentious race, but just because you saw a meme about fraud or voter intimidation (whichever your camp’s pet line is) does not make for evidence. Evidence, data given in full context, may emerge as we navigate through this. But navigate it carefully we must.
