1448 Americans died of COVID 19 yesterday and Donald Trump is doing nothing, has done nothing. His legacy is secure, right there with Jeffrey Dahmer.
(CNN) President Donald Trump’s efforts to deny the outcome of the 2020 election cannot change an undeniable reality: Joe Biden won decisively, and his lead nationally and in key states has grown over time as more votes have been counted.
They were, & even the illegal ones due to Russian hacking of voter machines that Mitch refused to protect, but a lot of Dem votes didn’t get counted because DeJoy & GOP sabotaged the mail to suppress votes. Trump still lost with your cheating & the world rejoiced at Biden’s win! pic.twitter.com/Ph9LPYnagN— Vertebrate (@AngieGr60130939) November 11, 2020

President-elect Biden is likely to end up over 5 million votes ahead of Trump in the popular vote when all the counting is done. He’ll get about or above 80 million votes — by far the most of any presidential candidate in history.
In the electoral college, Biden looks to be on his way to earning 306 electoral votes. That’s about 57% of all the electoral votes available and will be good enough for a 74 electoral vote margin over the sitting President.
Joe Biden's ability to cut into President Trump’s advantage in rural and postindustrial counties across Pennsylvania — where the president hoped to run up the score — was a key ingredient in Biden’s success. https://t.co/6uhmeNcSxs— Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (@PittsburghPG) November 11, 2020
And let’s be clear, the chance of a recount overturning the results in 2020 is basically nothing. Fairvote has looked at statewide recounts since 2000. The average shift in votes has been a mere 430 votes and 0.02 points. The largest shift in votes was a little less than 2,600 and 0.11 points.
All of Biden’s advantages are considerably larger than that right now. In other words, Trump would need multiple recounts to see movement in votes than simply hasn’t happened in the last 20 years.
JUST IN: Arizona AG Mark Brnovich tells Fox Business: "There's less than 50,000 votes to count and the president would have to get about 65% of them to win Arizona. So it does appear that Joe Biden will win Arizona"— Political Polls (@PpollingNumbers) November 11, 2020
The bottom line is Biden won this election and it’s not particularly close.
Most challengers to incumbent presidents don’t win, let alone come in with as clear a victory. Over the last century, just four other challengers beat incumbent presidents. The only three with a bigger win in the electoral college than Biden is forecasted to get were Franklin Roosevelt in 1932, Ronald Reagan in 1980 and Bill Clinton in 1992. read more
