Democracy in America is a joke. They should do away with Electoral College.

10 ( +18 / -8 )

So I guess the usual crowd will be on shortly to gloat about how this all this stuff about electors is just a lib delusion and Trump’s victory is in the bag because of some new farfetched thing they’ve come up with to keep their dream alive?

18 ( +23 / -5 )

Game over.

Welcome, President Biden!

17 ( +23 / -6 )

so where are those that said Trump would uncover the so called fraud and flip the election!?

14 ( +19 / -5 )

Now all that's left to worry about is faithless electors...

-3 ( +5 / -8 )

Remember all those posts from the Trump supporters here - each one with the tagline; "Trump will win in a landslide"....

Uh-huh....

14 ( +19 / -5 )

Game over. 

Not really.

so where are those that said Trump would uncover the so called fraud and flip the election!?

They're looking into it.

Game over. 

Not really.

What odds would you give on Trump’s team proving mass electoral fraud and seeing Trump serve a second term?

Remember your past predictions on US presidential elections and how all of us could have cleaned up by betting against them.

The idea that hundreds of poll workers in multiple states of both parties could or even would conspire to throw an election is so stupid that it really causes on to doubt the cognition of those who subscribe to it.

10 ( +16 / -6 )

Game, set and match for President Biden.

A reversed landslide victory and the greatest in history. Trump supporters for most of this year claimed Trump would get a landslide victory including winning the popular vote which alway bugged Trump that he lost that back in 2016.

December 8th, it's over.

Trump on Jan 20th is planning to hold his own inauguration event.

11 ( +15 / -4 )

And there it is. Job done, time to move on, as Trump supporters liked to say back in the day.

Remember all those posts from the Trump supporters here - each one with the tagline; "Trump will win in a landslide"....

Not seen round these parts since Nov 3rd, still clawing their way out of the landslide.

Something that will be welcomed, by all (no doubt), is that we won't have any people saying "Hail Trump/Biden". Because that was a low point, and sent shivers down the spine. No matter what your political stance is.

I'm not too worried about Trump after the election. He'll continue to talk about how the election was stolen from him yet he stepped down anyway which will contradict his own message. And saying crazy s* as a regular citizen isn't anything like saying crazy s** as President. He will be more like a crazy uncle that you will come to ignore.

No one cares what Trump supporters have to say. It's game, set and match for Biden.

lol old fella ...."won"...feel sorry abt America and whole world...

-9 ( +6 / -15 )

Congratulations Mr Biden and Ms Harris.

Goodbye orange goat. We had enough of your arrogance, stupidity and ramblings. The World welcomes back America.

I’m not a lawyer, I wouldn’t know.

and seeing Trump serve a second term? 

Probably 2024

Remember your past predictions on US presidential elections and how all of us could have cleaned up by betting against them.

And the Dems got their clocked clean in the House.

I expect Trump, his family and his syndicate defended by Trump’s personal attorney Rudy G. to continue their con game getting the gullible to contribute more money to their war-against-America-chest. 

That Trump, his cult and other Republicans continue trying to undermine the foundations the US was built on, attack voting and elections, shows they’re not just anti-democracy, but also anti-republic.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

In 2024 Trump won't even be the republican domination. Harris will be the 47th president when Biden resigns before his end of term. She will then win the 2024 election.

Sounds like a great script for an Oliver Stone flick. Lol

That Trump, his cult and other Republicans continue trying to undermine the foundations the US was built on,

No, quite the Opposite Trump was trying to drain the swamp, he was trying to let people go to work he was trying to make sure that people have their civil rights protected and get these Democrats are undermining all of that and they have done that for years and it seems like at least for the next four years are going to do that again, that is a problem for the nation and it seems like in some twisted and suspicious fashion, they got their wish for now.

I'm a lifelong Democrat but I cannot agree with that statement. Just as military leaders would study the leadership, equipment and tactics of a foreign adversary, you need to listen to the other side in politics and understand their world view. I don't mean you have to agree with them, but listen and understand. Figure out where they are coming from and when possible find ways to address their concerns. Don't allow hubris to let you be blindsided by events you didn't see coming. Know what the other side is thinking. Not the distorted social media version but actually talk to people and listen. Some of it is genuinely scary but not always.

Oh my....another one jumps off the crazy train....

Although many Republicans have insisted that President Donald Trump still has a chance at winning the 2020 election despite ample evidence to the contrary, Kellyanne Conway isn’t one of them.

In an interview with 19thNews.org on Friday, the former White House counselor admitted that President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris won the election,

"If you look at the vote totals in the Electoral College tally, it looks like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will prevail,” Conway said. “I assume the electors will certify that and it will be official. We, as a nation, will move forward, because we always do.”

Bingo and if not, the House is looking more and more promising and Dems won’t be happy when they lose it.

Whatever helps you deal with the massive rejection your guy was hit with.

I wonder if Trump has heard of Hello Work?

Congrats, for the 4th week, President elect Biden and VP elect Harris.

It's truth and obvious the election's been over for so long, now, but I don't mind repeating the congratulatory message.

What a great day for America to have the electoral college declare a winner in Joe Biden and Kamala Harris!! I realize it's ground hog day, but this is one good side to Trump and co. with their unhinged fraud fraud. We get to tell them Trump's a loser, over and over, again.

Kellyanne Conway throws Trump under bus, admits Biden won the election by a mile.

10 ( +12 / -2 )

No, quite the Opposite Trump was trying to drain the swamp,

Is that why he surrounded himself with swamp creatures?

he was trying to let people go to work he was trying to make sure that people have their civil rights protected

Not really.

and get these Democrats are undermining all of that and they have done that for years and it seems like at least for the next four years are going to do that again, that is a problem for the nation and it seems like in some twisted and suspicious fashion, they got their wish for now.

There is zero evidence supporting these claims.

@bass4funk: Interesting how you're 'links' to websites are coming from more and more obscure websites in order to present your argument.

I'm no fan of Trump or Biden and at the end of the day my opinion does not matter as I am not American, What I do think though is that your entire election process is flawed . The whole college thing is nonsense and outdated. You are voting for the POTUS, right? Now, I understand that the US is essentially a load of different 'countries' thrown together in a Federation, all of which have of their own different laws, but this was a Election for the President, i.e. a FEDERAL contest. To vote for the leader of the Free World. Please explain why in a am election for the President of the FEDERATION, the ways and means to elect that person vary so differently from State to State. Looking in from the outside is always been a load of old nonsense, but if its never really been a problem before as you haven't had an egotistical madman in office! Surely, if Trump had wanted to assure victory this year he would have devoted more of the last 4 years to reforming the election process, and streamlining it until something resembling the modern world OR bending into something he thought would give him a better chance of victory rather than sitting back and watching States change the rules on mail in ballots and the like and doing something concrete about it.

I love you visiting your country, I have many good friends there, I can't to get back there once COVID has left us, but the fact you can't see this whole debacle is making a laughing stock of your great country saddens me immensly. Meanwhile, Trump has effectively 'abdicated' since the Election loss (yes, its a loss) - surely he would come out of hiding and continue to run the country which really does need someone in charge now and clearly doesn't, if he seriously thought he had a chance of overturning the result.

Congratulations to all believers of Democracy.
