Trump's first victory: in the US, the authorities will not take into account part of the ballots


On Thursday, Nov. 12, a Pennsylvania judge ruled that the state should not count ballots that arrived too late in the mail at polling stations, as well as ballots without identification documents, when counting votes. Forbes magazine writes about it.


Donald Trump's campaign headquarters and the National Republican Party Committee filed a lawsuit last week in an attempt to challenge an earlier decision made by Secretary of State Katie Primer - it allowed voters to extend the ability to provide identity documents by mail voting from November 9 to 12, if they were initially missing.

However, it is not yet clear exactly how many ballots without the necessary identification are subject to the court decision, which allows Democrats to say that this will not affect their candidate's victory in Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia Inquirer estimates that there are 2100 such bulletins in Philadelphia alone.

Nevertheless, this can be called the first victory of Donald Trump. But, according to the lawyer of the owner of the White House, Rudolph Giuliani, the "big lawsuit" is still ahead.

To paraphrase the words of the great astronaut, this is a small step for Trump ...

    Why, Biden's losses in Pennsylvania were announced. Minus 20 electoral votes. At the moment, Biden no longer has 270 votes, but 254 votes. And it's not over yet. The holiday continues.

      In Philadelphia, there are 2100 of them for 1,5 million, i.e. there are roughly 8 times the number of 12 million in Pennsylvania. Those. about 17 thousand, with a difference of more than 60 thousand votes. No losses.

        Nobody argues. It was about the fact that at the recount in Pennsylvania, Trump won. In this state. But with the victory of Democrats in other states, Biden's position was strengthened again. But this does not mean that the success of the Republican decision in court, following the example of Pennsylvania, cannot be repeated. A precedent has been set in this election campaign. Which is not finished, but transferred to the court. Provided, of course, if Trump himself does not admit defeat.

          So I'm writing about Pennsylvania, but it also turns out that 60 thousand will remain that way (I read it in other sources). It just won't add more votes (of which the majority is in favor of Biden by mail).
