Uhhhhh... ok man. People are free to discuss what they want here so long as it's pertaining to the election. You're under no obligation to participate, so if you're not interested then don't. Coming into a thread to aggressively tell people not to discuss what the thread is about is not ok.

If you had asked me 4 years ago about removing the Electoral College, I would've said, "Ehhhh, I don't know about that."

If you ask me now: "Yeah, get rid of it. It's got to go."

Amen.  It's ridiculous to hold onto this nonsense system, just so republicans don't feel bad.  It's got to go.



As a non-American; any truth to claims the Supreme Court can overturn the election and reinstall Trump for a second term? It's all over Twitter but I can't tell if it's just bluster from extremists or if it can actually happen.

Because that sounds awfully like a coup, having an election decided by a panel of 9 people when one candidate leads by several states and millions of votes.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

No.  They are thinking 2000's Gore vs Bush. That was the closest election possible. I believe it was literally over 500 votes in one area.  Made even more complicated by the concept of the "hanging chad".

Trump lost the popular vote by over 5 million. By 36 electoral votes.  At least three states worth. And many, many, many votes.

As shown by the fact that Trump's and co have lost 35 different lawsuits - they have no leg to stand on. Even trump appoint lawyers aren't buying it.

Getting less likely each day. Trying to get the courts or electors to overturn the people's vote on any number of paper thin pretexts has been the Trump admin's post-election day strategy, but with no substance to their claims their cases are getting ruled against or just thrown out left and right. The most alarming moment so far was when Michigan officials were flown out to the White House to 'hear the president out' but even that thankfully doesn't seem like it's going to work and Trump's options shrink as more states set their vote counts in stone. Trump is absolutely attempting a coup any way he can get away with (while projecting otherwise), but thankfully it's looking like our safeguards are strong enough to stop him. Those safeguards are only as strong as the people enforcing them, though.

There is no legal justification to overturning the election. It won't happen.
