The Lights Go Out in Georgia

These so called "candidates" demanded privacy during the run up to the election.  They were phoney and had no intention of running to win.  The entire purpose of running as a third party and as a liberal was to siphon off votes from the democrat candidate.  In truth they were all registered Republicans.  The Republicans propped up this third party run.

Maybe I missed it, but I did not see where they set up a "third party."  One individual with the help of a few others and large financing from somewhere set up three people to run in elections.  In fact, didn't one or more actually run as Democrats after changing from Republicans?

Sure, this is true. But the big unanswered question is - what is the reasoning that 1.5% of the population used who bothered to vote in this extremely important election and then made a 3rd party/write-in choice that could not win and was thus voting for the winner whoever that might be? 

One they didn't even know, since they didn't even campaign. Idiots!

In the Florida case it was for State Senate seats and the voters were inundated with leaflets touting the progressive qualities of these phoney 'third party' or independent candidates.  In one case the democrat incumbent lost by about 30 votes.

Makes me wonder....

IS there an actual vote count for KANYE WEST?  :D  And wouldn't be a kick that if not for them Trump might have won reelection?  ;) 

Sepiatone

He received 60,000 votes in the 12 states where he was on the ballots.  https://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2020-54849605.   Jo Jorgensen, Libertarian, got 1.8 Million and Green Party candidate got almost 340,000 ( I think).

But she will probably be elected anyway.  Don't forget the two main Republican candidates in her race got about 46% of the vote to  Warnock's less than 33%  If Trump had not backed Doug Collins, Loeffler might have gotten over 50% and won.  Of course there was a smattering of other Dem and GOPer candidates in the race to muddy the results.

And they still don't have the guts to ditch Trump.

 

Donald Trump says he's 'ashamed' he endorsed Georgia Governor Brian Kemp because he has 'done absolutely nothing' to question the state's results

Trump says he's 'ashamed' to have endorsed Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp

Donald Trump campaigned for Brian Kemp as governor of Georgia, but on Sunday said he was 'ashamed' of his endorsement after Georgia voted for Joe Biden. Trump feels that Kemp should have done more to challenge the results of the November 3 vote, and believes that he has been let down by the Republican officials in the state. Georgia had not voted for a Democrat in nearly 30 years.

Kemp was Sec. of State before he became gov. in 2017.    So, if he challenged the procedures in place, he would in effect be challenging  ones that he was involved in establishing.  Although I am sure Covid-19 caused some other changes.  Also he would be attacking the Republican Sec. of State who took his place.

In neighboring Georgia counties, election revealed a growing divide that mirrors the nation

Newton has become brighter blue. Jasper is deeper red. Density, diplomas and diversity explain why.

Interesting, but repetitious and too long an article.  I didn't see where the writer noted that Covington is on I-20 and Monticello is in the middle of nowhere.  Covington is also fairly close to Athens, home of the University of Georgia.  Those two things probably factor in a lot as to why it is trending red (if it really is), along with proximity to Atlanta.

I travelled to Atlanta fairly often over the past 50 years until the pandemic.  It has changed dramatically during that period.

BUT, just because a county or state or a person voted AGAINST Trump, that does not mean they are changing parties.

The real impact will be the studies and articles that show how many red counties and districts voted for Democrats down ballot.  Probably very few.  Georgia may be changing, but it has not changed yet.  Same with many other districts and states.

From Wikipedia:  "After earning her MBA, Loeffler worked for Citibank, William Blair & Company, and the Crossroads Group.[15] In 2002, she joined Intercontinental Exchange, a commodity and financial service provider, in investor relations.[16] She married the firm's CEO, Jeffrey Sprecher, in 2004; .... Loeffler was eventually promoted to senior vice president of investor relations and corporate communications.[18] In 2018, she became the chief executive officer (CEO) of Bakkt, a subsidiary of Intercontinental Exchange.[19]

In 2009 Loeffler helped Intercontinental Exchange establish and market offshore a credit default swap clearninghouse in the Cayman Islands as an offshore tax haven. It allowed the biggest banks to avoid paying taxes on repatriation of income.[20] International Exchange used Ugland House as a registration address in the tax haven without having a physical presence there.[21]"
