Remember when having misgivings about the results of an American election was the mark of a dangerous lunatic?
From a recent YouGov survey, the percentages of respondents who have only a little or no confidence at all in the legitimacy of the outcome of the 2020 US presidential election, with respondents who were either “not sure” or did not plan to vote–together comprising 20% of the total survey sample–excluded:
Post-Epstein, everyone is a conspiracist. I guess that means everyone is a racist as well, since there is no spelling “conspiracist” without “racist”.
Incidentally, I’d include myself among these distrustful cohorts, albeit for reasons exactly opposite those of most of these distrustful people.
The Establishment made an enormous mistake by failing to rig the vote count enough in 2016. There wouldn’t have been any real pushback irrespective of how clumsily heavy-handed the effort had been (remember Detroit? No one else does). It certainly would not have hurt the Establishment’s credibility as much as the Russia Hoax did. The Supreme Court, today the only elite institution left standing in the way of progressive totalitarianism, would have been firmly in the Establishment’s control. The door would have been forever closed on the presence of Republicans in the White House.
That vote-counting is a state function means actually rigging the results isn’t as easy as fabricating a lie about how the Russians rigged them is. This is why so many blue states are now pushing to circumvent the Electoral College. Pledge your state’s EC votes to the winner of the national popular vote, watch California manufacture an infinity-billion Democrat ballots, and control the White House forever. Nebraskans simply don’t have it in them to compete with the corruption of big blue cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York.
