The Presidential Election may come down to one state.
And President Trump got some bad news.
Now Donald Trump delivered a reality check about the results that his voters never expected.
Pennsylvania and its 20 Electoral College votes hold the key to the election.
With Donald Trump’s campaign believing it has a strong chance to win Arizona when all is said and done, the President needs one more state to reach 270 Electoral College votes.
On election night, President Trump held a lead of about 700,000 votes in Pennsylvania.
But Pennsylvania Democrats’ officials delayed counting mail ballots until the next day.
Democrat Governor Tom Wolf said that all outstanding mail-in ballots – no matter when they were received – would count.
“We still have over 1 million mail ballots to count in Pennsylvania,” Governor Wolf tweeted. “I promised Pennsylvanians that we would count every vote and that’s what we’re going to do.”
Even with a million mail-in ballots to go, the voting patterns in Pennsylvania still favored the President.
American Greatness editor Chris Bursick wrote, “Trump is up by ~700,000 votes in PA. Biden has to win the remaining vote by ~2:1 to win the state. That’s going to be tough. That’s why they shut down Philly early tonight – just in case a few extra are needed. There were about 700k votes total in Philadelphia in 2016.”
But what troubled Republicans was a decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to allow ballots that came in up to three days after the election – even if there was no postmark or proof of mailing to certify that they were turned in on time – to count.
On the morning after the election, President Trump emailed warning them that before the election he predicted Democrats would use mail-in ballots to swing the election.
President Trump wrote:
Just like I predicted from the start, mail-in ballots are leading to CHAOS like you’ve never seen, plain and simple! The Radical Left is going to do whatever it takes to try and rip a TRUMP-PENCE VICTORY away from you, and that’s why I’m coming to you now…
…I warned the Nation this would happen, Jeff. I knew the Democrats wouldn’t be able to accept another CRUSHING defeat, so now they’re trying to mess with the results. It’s madness!
Every legitimate vote should count.
But to count, votes have to be turned in by the time the polls close and counted in a transparent and trustworthy manner.
Many Americans – including the President – do not believe that is happening in Pennsylvania.
And given the state’s importance in the Presidential Election, a transparent and fair vote count must take place.
