Stolen Election Claims Depressed Turn-Out

Public Domain

Claims the election was stolen likely cost the GOP a Senate majority and two wins in Georgia.

According to Town Hall:

During a week in which Democrats formally finalized their takeover of the US Senate’s instruments of power, and flexed their legislative muscles by pushing through a party-line vote to pave the way for a massive spending bill, it seems like an opportune moment to reflect on how we got here. Republican voters largely held the line, despite a daunting Senate map, in November. After election night, it very much looked like Democrats would net just one single seat in the upper chamber, allowing Mitch McConnell to remain majority leader, and force the Biden administration into tough negotiations on a wide range of issues. All they had to do was not lose both Georgia runoffs, which seemed eminently achievable. After all, Republicans had received more votes than Democrats in both races in the first round, and the runoff format has traditionally heavily favored the GOP. But then January 5 happened, and the Democrats swept both contests.

As a result, Chuck Schumer is now majority leader, and Kamala Harris is the tie-breaking vote. In the immediate aftermath of that debacle, we cited early evidence that David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler lost because Democrats were united and motivated, while GOP turnout was underwhelming amid conspiracies and intra-party anger. Republican fears had come true. More support for this theory has continued to trickle in:

More data, via the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

Over 752,000 Georgia voters who cast ballots in the presidential election didn’t show up again for the runoffs just two months later, according to a new analysis by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution of recently released voting records. More than half of the no-shows were white, and many lived in rural areas, constituencies that lean toward Republican candidates…Trump’s message that the election was stolen discouraged voters such as Craig Roland, a 61-year-old Rome resident. Roland said he didn’t believe his vote would count. “What good would it have done to vote? They have votes that got changed,” Roland said. “I don’t know if I’ll ever vote again.”…The AJC’s analysis found that the drop in turnout was most severe in northwest and South Georgia, areas where Trump held rallies, in Dalton and Valdosta, to bolster support for the state’s Republican senators.

Some even called it a hostage situation:

“It was a hostage situation every day,” said one Republican strategist familiar with the campaigns who only agreed to speak on the condition of anonymity. “We were always trying to guard against the tweet [from Trump],” the strategist said. “Every week we had some new sort of demand,” said another strategist involved with the campaigns. “Calling for the hand recount. The signature match. A special session. $2,000 [coronavirus relief] checks. Objecting to the electors.” “It was, ‘If you do not do this, the president will actively work against you and you will lose,’ ” he recalled.

Actually DEMS can’t really steal one’s soul. But they can piss away your hard-earned assets, destroy your neighborhoods and dumb down your schools, NOT ONLY CAN THEY…. THEY ACTUALLY DO THOSE THINGS. So, really, though they don’t realize it, they are cutting off their children’s noses to spite their faces.

NO, stolen election claims did not depress turn out. If anything depressed turn out, it was seeing our Government Representatives lie, cover up and ignore their Oath of Office.

I agree with your sentiment. However, now we’re paralyzed with no power.
Honestly, I truly fear that the nearly 80 million who voted for President Trump talk a good talk. But, in the end they will all settled down and get used to business as usual. All the talk I hear about 3rd party, no voting and on, and on. Get used to the one party rule.
That’s the most likely scenario.

I can see it as I have enough fire-power to aid in that effort. But a much more effective way to fix this is to take down our own economy. There are enough Conservatives and/or REPUBLICANS to actually affect a significant slowdown. The market might tank which may hurt DEMS even more than GOP and DEMS themselves will kill BIDEN/Harris from being effective and hence they will disappear next time around.

3rd party would simply dilute the vote !.
that being said if the 3rd party were strong enough To appeal to a broader majority it could rule…. and defeat both nasty pelosi and chuck the schmuck…. Then Again after four years of joebama, er ahh Obiden, maybe we will be ready for Trump back, in spades….

TRUMP was the only candidate that really stood out on behalf of Americans. He’s still available for another run, after DEMS are brought to the realization of their ridiculous antics and votes. Age and your place of residence shouldn’t be the most important qualification for being allowed to vote.

One should also be able to show some integrity and intelligence. Love of country wouldn’t hurt either.

Most of the people who disapproved of Trump do not have an idea why. They have listened to the media that is so bias they do not report the truth about anything. These people are lazy minded and depend on someone else to give them facts instead of investigating for themselves.

Perhaps if the GOP had insisted on Dominion machines and used them to their own advantage, the best might have won. Noooo… Not the most popular. The best criminal technicians would have won.

Since the entire electoral process has been poisoned and delegitimized, the GOP has only two options. They can continue as also-rans. Or they can become the best criminals.

The idea that the senate was lost because the talk of democrats stole the election, is just bull crap, those people did not care enough to get out and vote they knew what the results would be if they did not vote.
Now all the U.S. will pay the price of a few that did not care.

Joe, I took the time to read your full comment, and I couldn’t agree more. You are absolutely spot on with all your points. Those out here talking nonsense are, I believe part of the problem and not the solution.
Shame on every Georgian who stayed home because of the steal. If anything, people should have come out in droves to make their voices heard.
Now….here we are! At the hands and mercy of a very corrupt administration with very harmful intentions.

There are other social sites – you can google them or use another engine to search for these. I suggest that we get used to using several different sites/venues, so that we are all known on a number of them and will have already begun to build up a following on several sites.

Before Chucky “the Scheister” Schumer engineered a DEM takeover of our levers of power in America, we didn’t have all of this craziness, business strivings, people wondering how they’ll survive, etc. etc. etc.
So yes lets figure out how we can make things so awful that people will looking to get our real President back into office before all hell breaks loose.

If there were no machine and the fake republican who have helped the democracts win he wouldn’t be here. Only reason he and democracts won mainly is on machine. Like every election they have stolen it, and the weak party Republicans just sits their and let them take it walked all over by the democracts.

Republican Strategist? Give me a break. That loser is only trying to shift the blame of his/their pathetic campaign(s) in which the only campaign emails and mail we got were begging for money. Their commercials were pathetic and amateurish AND CHEAP just like Karen Handel’s twice losing campaigns. Assoff and Warlock had professionals doing their lying campaigns while Purdue and Loeffler had bargain basement hacks doing their ‘campaigns’. The dems had a unified campaign, sharing signs and campaign appearances and funding while P & L appeared to compete against each other with their individual campaigns. Trump personally stumped for/with them, telling everyone that they really had to vote to overcome the corruption seen in the general election. Rathesburger(?) the RINO sold out Georgia for his own political gain, so he can run as the democrat he really is (and has been). Kemp is a corrupted politician, also playing both ends against the middle for his own political gain, who came up with the stupid open election for Loeffler’s seat instead of a primary, just to make sure Doug Collins didn’t win – and diluted the vote and resources. Both will be primaried if they try to be reelected as Republicans.

Everyone needs to read Time magazine’s article: “Well-funded cabal of powerful people saved democracy.” It lays out exactly how the oligarchs, complicit media and Democrats conspired to take the 2020 election from us. It also reveals their roadmap for the future. We must pay attention and push our state governments to enact laws that will prevent this leftist takeover.
Call your legislators and demand they vote against H.B. 1, that is legislation currently in the House that will destroy Americans ability to hold a legal and accurate election.

No problem Rick, I upvoted you for the response. I am 100% for calling ALL LEGISLATORS. Local and in WA. Much to my anger and frustration they won’t pick up the phone or answer in writing. A goon for my governor said it’s just to much mail coming in and no one to answer the call volume.
Obviously, these cockroaches don’t want to be dealing with the people who elect them.
Thank you for your response.

All of this effort is useless.

ANYHOW killing the economy will be so bad for business and big banks, etc. that everyone will be calling for the DEATH OF BIDEN/Kamala party.

They continue with truly DUMB accusations with the hope and prayer( Yeah, prayer, right, Uh Huh) that their accusations will smear and smudge our President’s reputation thus giving him little hope of a good following should he ever run again.
STUPID….just plain Stupid. And all of the charts and polls they can imagine up will change none of it. They are as phony and concocted as the election and the stats for it and therefore LIES, all LIES> Now please STFU and see about doing your Job, only now, PLEASE, FOR THE PEOPLE???

This is nonsense. The democrats stuffed the ballot boxes again in the senate run off and the so called republican governor did not use the months between November and January to call a special session and ensure that only verified, legally cast ballots would be counted. The democrats simply wait until the returns show how much lead the republicans have and then Dekalb county and Stacy Abrams thugs simply show up with enough ballots to reverse the will of the people. Same as Pennsylvania Michigan Arizona and all the swing states that mysteriously turned when ballots showed up after the the dead line . None of those ballots are real. Does anyone really think the Vice President occupying the White House won 10 Million more votes than Obama? Sleepy Joe the corrupt? Doubt it

Wrong. The changing of votes in the machines was the outcome as well as the illegal votes cast. Clear and simple. If that is the standard why doesn’t the GOP do the same ? You have to out cheat them to win.

The stolen vote count can’t be hidden from an audit if the machine prints a ballot that is then reviewed and confirmed by the voter before it is filed and is then retained for an audit if demanded.

Yes, DemRats steal election and not only in Georgia, but in most states in USA. But the GOP is the one who should be blame for it equality. more so McConnell. RepRat had 4 years to take care of media, voting problems since Bush Gore fiasco. He choose to sell our our country to China and DemRats. I hope he got bonus from his father in law.
Him, Romney and the other goons like it are the problem, Ryan left overs also. You got what you wanted. Deal with it.

Article 2 of US CONSTITUTION discusses removing an OFFICER of the Government- – Nothing about a private citizen! The only way to remove a citizen is by jailing – which requires an actual crime, or by MURDER, which apparently DEMS are too chicken to try.

If you can spare the time (2 hours), watch the docu-movie titled “Absolute Proof” at https://michaeljlindell.com/. In this you will see and hear the proof of how the election was stolen. Forensic investigators give the entire story on it. China is involved, and all the named companies that own/programmed the voting machines is quite alarming. It is not ‘blah’ watch as every minute gives information, including charts and spread-sheets (they have over 11,000). Now if only we could use the given proof and get Biden out of office.
