Watching and listening online today, I’ve been hearing one (well-respected) person after another saying something pretty much amounting to: “Sure, the election was stolen, but Joe Biden won it all the same.”
There seems to be a kind of passive acceptance. Some are even saying something like: “Elections are always stolen. Somebody always steals it. And this time it was Joe Biden who stole it, despite having stayed home, not campaigned, and nobody liked him, and nobody voted for him.”
A lot of people seem to have given up. They think it’s over. Once Fox News or CNN calls a race, that’s the end of it.
But one person who hasn’t given up is Donald Trump. He never gives up. So this is going to the courts, and very likely all the way to the Supreme Court by mid-December, with a whole raft of evidence of Democrat vote-rigging. It’s going to have to be a Republican-dominated Supreme Court that rules in Joe Biden’s favour before Trump finally concedes.
So I fully expect this to all rumble on through November and December. We may even see Trump returning to the campaign trail. holding rallies again, shoring up his base. Why not? It’s not over, even if a lot of people seem to think it is, because the mainstream media have been telling them that it is.
So I expect to see Trump come out fighting, fighting through the courts.
And if he does end up losing, he’ll very likely be back in 2024, when he’ll still be younger than Joe Biden is now.
Back in 2016 I placed a bet on Trump to win. There were long odds against him winning back then. I haven’t looked, but I’m guessing that the odds are even longer this time around, and so I’ll be wanting to place another bet on Donald Trump.
(Update: When I bet on Trump to win in 2016, I got odds of 5:1. It had been 50:1 earlier. It seems that right now the odds are 6:1, so I’m guessing that a lot of people are betting that he’s still going to win.)
