It’s not just Michigan.
Biden won the first count of the votes in Georgia. Then he won the hand recount. Then Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and Gov. Brian Kemp certified his win. Now, thanks to a request from the Trump campaign, there’s going to be a machine recount starting Tuesday morning to be completed by the end of the day on Dec. 2.
A few votes may change here and there, but given that the votes have already been counted twice and certified by Republicans, Biden’s lead of over 12,000 votes will stand. He will win the state a third time, or fourth if you want to count the certification as a win. Boy, Trump’s team sure wants to drive home that Biden really, really, really for sure won Georgia, huh?
Team Trump is butting up against the will of the voters, trying to knock it down in state after state. That the effort is failing is important—and the way it’s failing is sometimes hilarious—but make no mistake that it’s an assault on democracy itself, and an attempt to keep Trump’s supporters convinced that Trump is the election’s true winner. That’s dangerous.
