Word out today is it looks like the Democrats are cooking up yet another eye-roll inducing scheme for this November’s federal election.
A RECOUNT PLAN.
According to a number of reports from sources including Axios, a top Democratic data and analytics firm is predicting that Trump will indeed have a landslide win on election night, but will face a stunning defeat over the preceding weeks when the “mail-in” ballots are counted and recounted until recounted in Biden’s favor.
What they’re saying: Hawkfish CEO Josh Mendelsohn calls the scenario a “red mirage.”
“We are sounding an alarm and saying that this is a very real possibility, that the data is going to show on election night an incredible victory for Donald Trump,” he said.
“When every legitimate vote is tallied and we get to that final day, which will be some day weeks after Election Day, it will in fact show that what happened on election night was exactly that, a mirage,” Mendelsohn said. “It looked like Donald Trump was in the lead and then he fundamentally was not when every ballot gets counted.”
By the numbers: Under one of the group’s modeling scenarios, Trump could hold a projected lead of 408-130 electoral votes on election night, which sounds about exactly right based on our own polling and research. if only 15% of the vote by mail (VBM) ballots had been counted.
Hypothetically, once 75% of mail ballots were counted, perhaps four days later, the lead could flip to Biden’s favor.
This particular modeling scenario portrays Biden as ultimately winning a massive victory, 334-204.
The methodology, described in detail below, was based in part on polling from FiveThirtyEight in August.
The ultimate results may well sit somewhere between these low-end and high-end scenarios and will also be impacted by who actually votes, and how voters’ views about their options and opinions change over the coming weeks.
That said, it certainly appears that these people will literally stop at nothing to gain or retain any tiny sliver of power.
Some major conservatives on Twitter have also echoed the sheer ridiculousness of this nauseating plot by Democrats:
“Democrats haven’t conceded a presidential election on election night since 1988. They are now laying the groundwork for endless recounts and litigation to prevent a potential Trump win from being certified before Inauguration Day.”
“If Democrats are able to bounce a sitting president after burning down America’s cities, tanking America’s economy, and running a man whose brain is tapioca pudding as the nominee, it will be truly revealing where we are as a nation.”
Many other less known conservative accounts on Twitter are also far ahead of the think tanks curve saying they’re surprised that strategy didn’t happen in 2016.
Also a growing number of them are saying that, “because the President has faced such childish absurdity for his first four years, he should be allowed to begin his Presidency (if elected again) a full 8 year term once the crying has officially stopped, like we do with our children”.
There is one thing we at the RPI are absolutely sure of and that is that the majority of American people will NOT stand for this kind of tactic and we’d be ever more likely to see a real civil war erupt should that scenario be executed.
