Democrats love contested elections because there are so many ways they can steal them. And so many ways for them to win some advantage point with them. There also happens to be two major developments going on right now regarding this election. Without addressing them both at the same time in the same story the point of the recount issue by itself is meaningless. The current effort to recount the votes in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania is a distraction and a smokescreen for the Democrats real purpose. The Trump delegates in the Electoral College are under siege to change their votes and this recount push is certainly not helping them maintain their positions. This recount effort is really being used to demoralize them.
The Democrats also have everything to gain by creating doubt and confusion with voter recounts. Read this opening paragraph about the 2008 U.S. Senate race in Minnesota from Wikipedia.
After a legal battle lasting over eight months, Al Franken from the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (DFL) defeated Republican incumbent Norm Coleman in one of the closest elections in the history of the Senate. Al Franken took his oath of office on July 7, 2009, more than half a year after the beginning of his term on January 3, 2009.
By the way, Al Franken won after several hundred absentee ballots mysteriously reappeared after being discovered at the bottom of someone's desk.
The Democrats have already admitted they have thousands of lawyers standing by to challenge the election results. If the recount issue is allowed to hold up the final election results it may delay the Electoral College vote on December 19th. If it winds its way into the courts, that keeps Barack Obama in the White House until it is finalized. That also puts a lot of pressure on the thin GOP Senate majority to postpone the nomination hearings of Chief Judge Merrick Garland that Obama made to the Supreme Court. If that happens then it is very possible that the liberal Democrat that Obama nominated will be confirmed, either by the Recess Rule or by a frustrated Senate. If so, score a major win for the Democrats, even if Donald Trump is eventually sworn in.
My gut feeling is the big push for a recount is a smokescreen and a distraction to the Democrats real purpose. That purpose is to demoralize the Trump delegates to the Electoral College. These elected delegates are already being besieged with death threats to make them change their vote when the Electoral College meets on December 19th.
This fact doesn't diminish the importance of the vote recount and the national Tea Party has called for loyal Trump supporters to act as witnesses in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania when the recount takes place. Read more on their web page:
It wouldn't be the first time Democrats have tried to steal an election with a recount. They have done it many times before by getting dead people to vote and busing in illegal voters that are not hampered with voter ID restrictions. And believe me, it won't be over until the fat lady sings Trump's victory song or the Patriots run out of ammunition.
