Georgia: Republicans Perdue, Loeffler Lead, But Democrats Still Cheating

Posted on | January 5, 2021 | 3 Comments

UPDATE 11 p.m. ET: At this hour, both Republicans are leading by significant margins, Sen. David Perdue up by about 100,000 votes over Democrat challenger Jon Ossoff, and Sen. Kelly Loeffler leading Democrat Raphael Warnock by about 70,000 votes, with a little more than 90% reporting. However . . .

Fulton and DeKalb counties are likely to start dumping in vast truckloads of ballots. By the time we wake up in the morning, we’ll likely learn that Democrats have eked out “miraculous” victories — and by “miraculous,” of course I mean, fraudulent. Democrats will steal it, just the same way they stole it for Biden in November. Or that’s my expectation, anyway. If I wake up to find the Republicans have won, I’ll be surprised.

UPDATE 11:08 p.m. ET: Election officials in Chatham County (Savannah, a Democrat stronghold) have stopped counting, left the office, and say they’ll return at 8 a.m. There are reportedly 20,000 ballots left to count there.

This is obviously the Democrat Emergency Vote Fraud Backup Plan, just in case Democrats in Fulton and DeKalb counties can’t manufacture enough phony ballots to steal the election.

Polls closed at 7 p.m. ET in the Georgia Senate runoff elections, which means that the shenanigans have just begun. Far be it from me to insinuate that Democrats are going to try to steal the election. I mean, you’d have to be some kind of right-wing conspiracy theorist to believe that Democrats in Georgia are less than scrupulously honest.

They’re all honor students and Eagle Scouts, those Democrats.

Anyway, this will be where we compile the alleged election results.

UPDATE 7:20 p.m. ET: As predictable as clockwork:

Notice this — the most backwoods rural district up in the Appalachian hills will return 100% of its results by 9 p.m., meanwhile the wealthy urban counties can’t get their votes tabulated by midnight.

UPDATE 7:30 p.m. ET: So, I tried to watch Fox News election coverage, an experiment that lasted about 15 minutes, at which point they brought on Chris Wallace and I clicked the “off” button. I imagine that millions of others did the same thing. Perhaps I’ll give Fox News another try sometime, but I’m not going to watch Chris Wallace again, ever.

UPDATE 7:38 p.m. ET: With 8% of the vote counted:

UPDATE 7:49 p.m. ET: Now with 14% of the vote counted:

Notice that (a) the margin is narrowing as more votes are counted and (b) the numbers are roughly the same in both races. In other words, if the current trend continues, the Republican candidates should soon move into the lead, and a split in the results is unlikely.

UPDATE 8:10 p.m. ET: Now with 27% of the vote counted:

UPDATE 9:30 p.m. ET: Now with 67% of the vote counted:

You see the Republicans have both pulled ahead, but the margins are still not large enough to prevent Democrats from stealing it.
