On election night it was explained by many state election officials that it might take days before the results in their state was known. And it should be obvious to anyone the pandemic changed how we vote. Just look at the long lines in many states during the primary elections if you need evidence of how difficult it would be in November. The early and mail in ballots could not be counted until election day in some states and it was known before polls closed in which precincts the early balloting came from. It's really simple, the vote counting in areas with very large populations will take much longer than in places with tiny populations. The political make-up of the voters in those area was know before those votes were counted.
Before the election instead of instructing his party to monitor mail in ballots, early voting, and telling people to illegally watch others vote, Trump went on rants against the USPS. And even went so far as to tell his supporters not to vote early.
I live a tiny predominate Republican county with less than 9000 voters with more early votes than on election day. Should I claim fraud and my county election was stolen because over 80% of the vote went to Trump or should I simply acknowledge the results reflect the ideology of the people in my county?
Trump's lawyers are claiming in courts without proof "illegal" votes are being counted and asking the courts to throw out the entire results. My question is "what is an illegal vote and how is it even possible?". I voted at my county court house, showed my drivers license, signed my name, my signature matched the signature on file, and was handed a paper ballot. Had something been wrong I would be given a provisional ballot and my vote would not be counted until the election broard decided it was legal. I guess Trump is claiming even the Republican run state and local election boards are cheating by simply following their state election laws.
Will someone, anyone tell Trump he lost the election so he can tell his supporters.
