Can't have it both ways sweetheart.

What you are implying is the "good" retards voted for Biden, while the "bad" ones voted for Trump.

But what do I know? I'm just a low IQ septic. So there's that
I had to google septic. That's worse.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

IQ tests are an imperfect way of measuring intelligence.

They should use the Bowlie Intelligence Quotient (BIQ):

If you disagree with me, you are a moron;
If you agree with me, you are a genius.

Ah no, he's already pulling out the "we're getting screwed by fraud".

Quote from Trumps Twatter

"Last night I was leading, often solidly, in many key States, in almost all instances Democrat run & controlled. Then, one by one, they started to magically disappear as surprise ballot dumps were counted. VERY STRANGE, and the “pollsters” got it completely & historically wrong!"

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

From the (#Fake News) NY Times "Biden has won Pennsylvania absentee ballots by an overwhelming margin so far.
If he carried the remaining absentee ballots by a similar margin, he would win the state"

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Quote:
Exit poll estimates put the President on a 61% share of the white vote in Florida.

Mr Biden appears to have made up ground on Hillary Clinton's performance with this demographic in 2016.

However, the President is also estimated to have gained 12 points among Latino voters, bringing him nearly level with Mr Biden among that sizeable group.

https://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2020-54783016
Looks as if Trump's warnings about Biden being a "socialist" or "communist" must have worked with a lot of Latinos. Thus someone who'd be the equivalent of a wet Tory in the UK is transmogrified into Fidel Castro.

It's interesting how it's a legitimate election as long as it's favoring him, and yet when it's not necessarily favoring him, it's instantly transformed into being illegitimate.

His campaign slogan might as well be "I win. No matter what."

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

While Biden's campaign and the way Dems let looting going on to fear conflict in case that Trump wins - is viewed as legit and Trump's campaign was certainly not legit.

Double standards everywhere. And now people don't find out about their mental diagnosis from EF but about their low IQ.

I am a Democrat and I never "let" anyone loot. Biden himself has criticized and condemned it, as I have myself. But being that neither he nor I are President, there isn't much we could do about it.

So what exactly about Biden's campaign is not legit?

Lovely word "transmogrified".

Looks like the concerns about election violence were intemperate, hope I am not posting too soon.

Trump already had one tweet in the last hour labelled as likely false by Twitter, he is getting manic as the grim electoral reaper approaches.

It doesn't take a genius to read up on the diagnostic criteria for behavioral disorders, MC. It's not rocket science. But apparently you're not able to understand the difference between me posting an article(s) about Trump having been diagnosed as a psychopath by numerous psychiatrists and me actually mentally diagnosing people on the EF.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Trump says he’s going to take it (whatever “it” is) to the Supreme Court. But as voting is a state procedure wouldn’t he be required to take “it” to the State’s courts first?

Sure, normally it is a long process -first a judge, then an appeal court then referred to the Supreme Court. Typically cases take years to reach the Supreme Court.

How Trump could shorten the usual timeline is not known, also whether his case would be strong enough to delay Biden's inauguration

Of course, the Supreme Court got relatively quickly involved in the showdown over the Bush/Gore presidency in 2000.
The downside of that decision for Trump is the Justices took the easy route and allowed the original vote certification made by Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris to stand whereas, presumably, Trump would want the certification to be changed..
