Today marks two weeks since Election Day, and no one knows for sure who won the 2020 presidential election. Numerous states are having difficulties in certifying their votes because of “irregularities.” Even though Americans are accustomed to knowing on election night who the next president will be, the 2020 election has proven to be worse than 2000.
In the 2000 presidential election, Americans did not know the results of the election for 37 days. The results in that contest went to the Florida Supreme Court twice and to the U.S. Supreme Court twice before an announcement was made.
So, what do we know? We know that two counties in Georgia have found votes for Donald Trump that were not previously counted but not enough to overcome the difference of approximately 13,000 votes. Will other counties also find votes? Will enough counties find votes to put the entire state in question? Your guess is as good as mine!
We know that Clark County in Nevada – home to Las Vegas – is having problems. The County commissioners decline to certify the results of the race for county commissioner. Apparently, this race will have a new election because there was such a “large scale voter discrepancy.” However, those discrepancies do not seem to have affected the presidential election.
There are several common questions about the presidential election. Why did the vote count stop simultaneously in all the key states at the same time on election night? Where did hundreds of thousands of votes come from for Biden -- and none for Donald Trump – when the counting started again? Why is it possible for more than forty states – even big states like California, New York, Texas, and Florida -- to get a correct vote count on election night, but states with Democrat governors in key states are struggling to do so two weeks later?
There are also questions about the investigation. Sidney Powell, attorney for General Michael Flynn, is working on the voter fraud case. She claims that she has “staggering” statistical evidence and testimony that proves Dominion voting machines switched votes from Trump to Biden. Powerhouse attorney Lin Wood is based in Atlanta, Georgia and has filed a court case against Georgia election official. He claims that Powell and Rudy Giuliani have “the smoking guns” that will prove Donald Trump won the election.
The obvious question about the investigation is, when will we see the evidence? A secondary question is, when will we see people going to prison for the fraud? The Electoral College is scheduled to meet on December 14. Will we know the results before that date?
