If you believe the media narrative, Biden won, not in the middle of a blue wave, but a red one in which Republicans flipped House seats and appear to have held on to the Senate. Not to mention the statehouses that were crucial targets of Democrat ambitions on which they spent a sizable fortune to no avail.
Biden, who routinely aroused little enthusiasm, somehow pulled off a bigger turnout than Obama, and managed to thrive in an election that wasn’t turning the country to the Left, but to the Right. A candidate who only prevailed in the Democrat primary because of backing from black voters, held out even as President Trump won the largest share of minority voters in generations, including 18% of black men.
It’s certainly quite an accomplishment. An impossible one.
The Biden wave proved so compelling that thousands and thousand of voters just cast a ballot for him, without bothering to vote for any down ballot candidates.
That might be plausible for magic candidates like Obama or Trump with passionate fan bases, and voters who disdained all other politicians, but was any really coming out to vote just for Biden because of his incredible magnetism and charm?
There are obvious questions here that make Occam’s Razor seem pretty dull.
To believe that this election was legitimate and the numbers are real also requires believing that Joe Biden was an incredible candidate who mobilized a nation to come out for him, even while Democrats were losing their newly gained seats in New York and California. This nation didn’t show up to Biden rallies, didn’t bother putting up Biden lawn signs, but was determined to see him win.
Or you can accept that this election was as crooked as your average Philly, Chicago, and Detroit affair
