The Sleight of Hand Election of 2020

I’m no magician but I know a couple of great ones, including my broker, who is famous in both professions (welcome to LA), but I doubt even my friend Stan can pull off the sort of trick I saw taking place at, oh, 2:00 in the morning of November 4th as I was watching the live feeds from Michigan and Pennsylvania roll in.

I’m pretty good at counting votes before and after an election. Did it for Presidents and Prime Ministers, Senators and Governors as a pollster and strategist, so watching returns, doing the splits, figuring out the precincts that come in favorably for your guy or girl versus the ones that don’t, all come second nature to me. Mostly because I’ve been doing it for forty years, and when I’m not counting votes, I’m counting cards ( that’s another article). So when you see – in the middle of the night – a “dump” of votes of about 28,000 come in for one candidate, Joe Biden, and NOT one single offsetting vote for Trump, then it raises more than just my eyebrow.

Supreme Court orders separate count of late-arriving Pa. ballots

The Supreme Court on Friday ordered Pennsylvania election boards to separately count mail ballots that arrived after Election Day, while rejecting a GOP request to stop counting those votes.

The order, signed by conservative Justice Samuel Alito, left open the possibility that the justices could exclude the late-arriving ballots in a subsequent ruling, a move which Alito and at least two other conservative justices have previously signaled they may be inclined to take.

County Will Continue Process Of Scanning Mail-In Ballots Wednesday

According to a press release from the county Tuesday night, about half of the ballots received by mail had been counted by 8 p.m. but the process was going more slowly than anticipated due to mechanical issues with the ballot scanner.

After the high speed scanner had been operating all day, a technician was called into the Election Bureau to allow the scanning to continue until 11:30 p.m. before picking back up again around 8:30 a.m. A second scanner is also expected to be available on Wednesday.

In a nod to the importance of winning Pennsylvania in order to secure a second term, Trump will hold four rallies in the Keystone State on Saturday.

Trump will hold five more rallies on Monday on the eve of Election Day. He will stop in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, along with two events in Michigan. His final event will be in Grand Rapids, Mich., the same city where he held his final rally of the 2016 campaign.

Is Joe Biden Toast If He Loses Pennsylvania?

Is Pennsylvania a must-win for Biden?

No, not quite. It is close to being a must-win for Trump, who has only a 2 percent chance of winning the Electoral College if he loses Pennsylvania. Biden, however, has a bit more margin for error. He’d have a 30 percent chance if he lost Pennsylvania, which isn’t great but is also higher than, say, Trump’s overall chances on Election Day 2016.
