If this leads us to bearing arms then I am quite prepared to do so, albeit that I don’t live in the US....we vote, because we live in a Democracy.

Well, in this thread's vote most people called it correctly... "No clear result on the night, Trump declares victory, starts legal challenge to confirm."

It's much closer than I thought it would be (should be), but I'm still optimistic that Biden will just nick it once the postal votes are counted - or should that be IF the postal votes are counted?

I agree, I think he'll (just) get Nevada, Wisconsin and Michigan to get the 270. It's been creeping up in Biden's favour as counting has gone on.

Nobody denied that Trump won the election. People were shocked and upset, especially considering the popular vote vs. the electoral college results, but it was pretty much viewed as an abject failure by Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.

This is different. IF Biden should win the electoral vote and the electoral college votes, there is not a credible authority which is claiming that anything would be untoward with that result - only Trump and his acolytes, and their claims are demonstrably baseless. The 'anti-Trump crusade' by CNN is no different to the 'anti-Clinton/Biden crusade' by Fox... it's just the media that the consumers deserve.

But still - the Democrats will need to take a long hard think about this election. To lose twice to Donald Trump would surely be grounds for disbandment.

I would think the same, Nevada, Wisconsin and Michigan to Biden to get the 270, and Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Georgia and Alaska to Trump, just a b bit shy of the 270.

4 more years of Trump, 4 more years of dumb monologues in simplified English, 4 more years of insults and lies, befriending dictators and causing harm to political friendship of allies......

Regardless of whether he wins or not, it's a fairly sad state of affairs that the USA has so many willing to support him. Having said that, Biden is not a stellar alternative ! A nation truly divided.

The comments Trump has made about not counting votes which were legitimately cast are absolutely abhorrent for the supposed leader of the supposed greatest democracy in the world. Bordering on the treasonous, surely?

I can't imagine that any federal judge, regardless of politics, could go along with his outrageous suggestions.

You mean apart from those in his pocket?
President Donald Trump has made big changes to the federal judiciary since taking office in 2017. Trump has appointed two Supreme Court justices – Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh – as well as nearly 200 other judges with lifetime appointments to lower federal courts.
https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tan...ederal-judges/
Trump has now appointed almost a quarter of all active federal judges in the United States. As of July 7, there were 792 active judges serving across the three main tiers of the federal court system: the Supreme Court, 13 regional appeals courts and 91 district courts governed by Article III of the U.S. Constitution. In his first term, Trump has appointed 194 of those judges, or 24% of the total. (This analysis excludes appointees to certain specialized courts, such as the U.S. Court of International Trade, as well as appointees to non-Article III territorial courts in Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands.)

Those federal judges fear the 'commies' more than bending electoral rules. Trump himself is simply a bid of a madman.

Trump will go to his grave knowing he was robbed of 4 more years by the crooked Democrats

If the Republicans win back the house and keep control of the senate, Biden as president will be like flying a plane without a pilot.
