It seems to be taking place once more. As I write this text, 92 p.c of the vote has been counted in Georgia, and each Republicans are main. Kelly Loeffler has a lead of two p.c over Ralph Warnock, and David Perdue has a lead of two.8 p.c over Jon Ossoff. Within the previous days, leads of that measurement this late within the vote depend could be sufficient to name each races. However that is 2020, and we’re being informed that vast waves of votes from key Democratic strongholds might swing each races in favor of the Democrats. Identical to we noticed in November, it seems that votes that can be counted in the course of the night time whereas many of the nation is sleeping will make all of the distinction.
Again in November, time after time President Trump was main Joe Biden in key swing states after 90 p.c of the vote had been counted, and time after time he misplaced.
This time round, some are anticipating that the Democrats will win earlier than they’ve even taken the lead within the vote depend. In reality, Dave Wasserman of the Prepare dinner Political Report has already called the race between Warnock and Loeffler…
Prepare dinner Political Report’s Dave Wasserman has seen sufficient.
The info skilled known as the Georgia runoff election for Democrat Raphael Warnock, who he says will defeat Republican Kelly Loeffler. The decision got here early, as Georgia’s senate runoff elections are tight and have but to be known as by main shops.
At this hour, we’re being informed that many of the “uncounted votes” are within the Democratic strongholds in the Atlanta area…
A lot of the uncounted votes are in metro Atlanta counties favoring Democrats in addition to absentee ballots that additionally favor Democrats. Nonetheless, Sterling stated there are additionally plenty of uncounted possible Republican votes unfold over smaller conservative counties within the state.
Isn’t it odd how they by no means appear to have the ability to depend votes as rapidly as everybody else?
Particularly, CNN is reporting that the most important variety of excellent votes are in DeKalb County…
The most important chunk of excellent votes is the early in-person voting numbers from DeKalb County, stated Gabriel Sterling, the voting programs implementation supervisor for the Georgia Secretary of State’s workplace, in a information convention this night.
The county is closely Democratic and performed a key position in handing President-elect Joe Biden a victory within the state within the presidential election.
In November, the largest cities in lots of crucial swing states had been extraordinarily sluggish in reporting their outcomes, and when these outcomes lastly got here in they pushed Biden into the lead in these states.
And guess what?
Only a few moments in the past, an enormous vote dump from DeKalb County has vaulted Warnock into the lead, and Ossoff is now virtually tied with Perdue.
96 p.c of the vote is now in, and it’s anticipated that the remaining 4 p.c of the vote will assist the Democrats much more.
Extremely, President Trump appeared to be anticipating this exact scenario…
Seems like they’re organising an enormous “voter dump” in opposition to the Republican candidates. Ready to see what number of votes they want?
States are going to have to begin altering their election legal guidelines after this. Any further, all counties needs to be required to report their vote totals at the very same time in order that no one will get an unfair “benefit”.
No one ought to be capable of delay their “counting” till they’ll see how all the different counties have voted. That simply opens up manner an excessive amount of of a chance for malfeasance.
And naturally we have to do away with the voting machines totally.
Talking of that, there have been all kinds of issues with voting machines in Republican strongholds in Georgia on Tuesday. Listed here are simply a few of the studies that we had been getting…
–Georgia radio host John Fredricks:”Dominion machines in… 3 of the most important Republican precincts…are down…They’re informed they’ll’t scan their ballots as a result of the machines don’t work…The pole staff are saying ‘When it’s mounted we’ll scan it for you’…There’s every kind of purple flags”
–Columbia County, Georgia: “Columbia county…It’s a Republican-majority county. Folks compelled to vote with provisional ballots and informed to test on-line later to see if the vote was counted.”
–Spaulding County, Georgia: Spoke with a lady who went to vote at 7am this morning. She & different voters had been informed the #dominion machines had been down. They weren’t given emergency paper ballots & had been informed to return later. Some voters unable to return again as a consequence of work.
It’s humorous – I didn’t hear of a single drawback with the machines in Democratic strongholds.
Possibly there have been issues and I simply didn’t hear about them. That’s totally potential.
Nevertheless it really is unusual how all of those election “anomalies” all the time appear to harm Republicans and assist Democrats.
Now 98 p.c of the vote is in, and Ralph Warnock has a 0.8 p.c lead on Kelly Loeffler. The opposite race is sort of fully tied.
However I’ve a sense that some extra votes will all of the sudden be “discovered” for Ossoff earlier than it’s all stated and finished.
The previous couple of months have drastically shaken religion in our political system, and it has develop into exceedingly clear that America is in huge trouble.
Now that this has occurred to them personally, I anticipate that Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue will each take a lot stronger stands on election safety sooner or later.
It’s nonetheless potential that Perdue might find yourself successful, however his lead simply all of the sudden shrank to lower than 2,000 votes.
The votes that Ossoff wants appear to be coming in, and it seems that he could possibly be about to take the lead.
It’s sort of unusual writing an article as I watch the outcomes are available. I had a sense that we had been going to see this kind of a state of affairs play out, and now it’s really taking place.
And proper on cue, the Democratic stronghold of Gwinnett County has introduced that they aren’t going to depend any extra votes until tomorrow morning…
Gwinnett County, a suburb of Atlanta, has completed counting for the day, leaving slightly below 4,800 absentee and a small variety of army ballots and cured absentee ballots to be counted, county officers stated.
If Ossoff finally ends up needing some extra votes to push him excessive, that’s the place he can get them.
Sadly, it seems fairly possible that the Democrats will find yourself taking management of the Senate, and that signifies that America isn’t going to be the identical once more after this.
