Trump would have won Georgia by 10,000 if he hadn’t ‘suppressed his own voting base’, says GOP official...

...Donald Trump’s fervent campaigning to undermine mail-in voting may have ultimately cost him victory in the crucial swing state of Georgia, its Republican secretary of state has said.

While the state is undergoing a recount, Joe Biden leads Georgia by around 13,000 votes, meaning he is poised to become the first Democrat to claim victory there in decades.


Georgia’s leading election official Brad Raffensperger, who has already faced the ire of Trump supporters for projecting a Biden victory in the state before a recount is complete, said the outgoing president’s unsubstantiated claims about the vulnerability of mail-in voting likely suppressed about 24,500 Republicans from casting their ballots.

"He would have won by 10,000 votes [but] he actually suppressed, depressed his own voting base," Mr Raffensperger said in an interview with WSB TV.

It's not rocket salad, if you want people to vote for you, telling them they can't trust the voting system is a really bad plan.

The US Spectator, apparently. I thought the point was that they didn't have any evidence and had lost 29 times out of 30 in court, but that's just me.

Well, if they had evidence, the court would have to look at it in depth.

They don't so it didn't.

I'm not sure what's so difficult about this.

What's making this difficult is the Orange Disaster* having the understanding capability of a drunk toddler.

Biden lead over 6 million now. He's nearly got 80m too.

And still shedloads from New York out there.

The plot thickens. Republican Governor of Maryland, Larry Hogan, is also in on it.
