Joe Biden now has the highest share of the popular vote for a challenger since FDR in 1932

4 Seasons Total Landscaper @markgongloff

Biden is now up to 50.8% of the popular vote, topping Reagan’s 50.7% in 1980. This is the highest percentage for a challenger since FDR in 1932

Trump would've given the same speech even if it was a blowout

Biden could have been on track to win 500 EV. Same speech. He was never going to concede gracefully.

It’s all bluster.

He can’t go directly to SCOTUS. They would hear an appeal from a state court or lower federal court.

There’s no legal comparison to be made to 2000, because 2000 was about stopping a recount. Trump wants to not count votes at all. No court, not even this SCOTUS, is going to do that. You can do some gymnastics to justify stopping a recount because “the votes have already been counted so this is a waste of time”; there is no way to justify “we shouldn’t count legitimate ballots at all.”

Trump is going to lose. He won’t go quietly, everyone knew that, but he will go because that’s just how it is.

Then he’ll spend the next 4 years holding more rallies and probably run in 2024. He won’t win the GOP primary, though, so he’ll run third-party and split the vote. Biden (or Harris if he only serves one term) wins bigger next time.

Biden wins Virginia!
