This isn't happening.
More mis-statements. They were always allowed but had to observe distance requirements for COVID-19. Trump successfully made them change to allow observation closer - within 6 ft. Not sure that's a really good idea, but they're doing it anyway - at great personal risk, I say. AFAIK observation was never "blocked." More "Trumpery" by his morons - whoops, I should say, minions.
It's tiresome to have to play whack-a-mole with LIES. "Belarus?" My foot!
Who's booking this stuff? WWE???
I saw videos , are they fake?
Biden is on the way to victory based on this and the trend.
D Joe Biden 2,445,568 49.36%
My gosh, I am stunned it is this close. I just wish the USA could get Democrats into 2/3 of congress to go with the presidency. Fast forward to the end. Seems cruel to just push this off on future generations. History, amiright?
At this rate he's going to end up with 400,000,000 votes
I'm learning how this works now. A simple search on Google probably turn up a fake news article or a fact checker article that would just have to be ignored. That means the best choice is a search of social media which will find unlimited support for the Trump lies.
I think the rule in most states is what it is here. Any margin of victory under 0.5% results in an automatic recount at state expense.
What about validity of mailed ballots?
Post mark and signature? These also vary between the states.
Do you thing BUsh-Gore SCOTUS ruling about the uniformity "guarantees equal weight for votes" will come to play this time around?
Elections official in the state of Georgia sated that there will be a recount.
Ok, at this point, I think they're doing this on purpose for the ratings
Neck and neck- virtually tied in GA and PA- but Biden's lead in Nevada has become more convincing.
It also looks like AP was right to call Arizona as early as they did.
Please link us to the videos you saw. The claims were based on the fact that observers had to observe social distancing. You know, so people wouldn't die. The parties have had the exact same access to observing the process.
Not always automatic. In some instances, there is a level at which a recount can be requested, but it isn't guaranteed. Then there's another level where it is automatic.
I don't recall--and I've been around awhile--an instance where a recount changed the outcome of a state's presidential election. It came close in Florida in 2000, but we all know how that ended.
So far, legal challenges by the Trump campaign have been dismissed by the courts. Something about not actually having any evidence and all that.
1. There's a difference between journalism and advocacy. Magness is the latter, commenting on the former. I don't want journalists to tell me Trump is a moron, I want them to report the facts and let me draw that conclusion for myself.
2-5. Fine, Magness didn't support Trump (as you can see); his goal was to explain what we saw happen.
6. If you know where there's a really good argument that Abrams actually won, which includes an explanation why the media didn't go ballistic about it, then by all means share it.
7. From my perspective, less "Yay" and more "Least bad option". Yes, I recognize our perspectives differ.
It was on Fox last night, I will try to find it.
As to PA the complaint was that the observers were 25ft away instead of regulated 6 ft.
You cant see a lot form 25ft away.
And yes for the lawsuits there has to be basis.
I think in PA the state government made changes to the deadlines (possibly for good reasons due to COVID and Post service delays) the argument that only Federal legislature make this changes.
So the extension is possibly unauthorized and pre - September 2020 law should be observed.
Again I will let the legal professionals to handle this.
Election laws are written by the states not the Federal government.
Possible I don't know the laws.
So in PA did state government legislated the change?
Or the change was made without the legislation?
Apparently I'm not the only one, though:
