Prof Writes Book Wondering What Happens if Trump Refuses to Give up Power After Losing

“delves into common, if unlikely, election scenarios, made more popular since the 2000 election debacle”

The left still hasn’t accepted the outcome of the 2016 election, and they’re already projecting their inability to accept the 2020 election if Trump wins again.

The College Fix reports:

Prof’s new book: What if Trump won’t give up power upon losing election?

A professor from Amherst College has a new book out which is sure to add to progressive consternation concerning Election Day 2020.

Titled “Will He Go? Trump and the Looming Election Meltdown in 2020,” Lawrence Douglas adds more fuel to already burning conspiracies, such as the 2016’s election loser’s yammerings which (most recently) include her advice to Joe Biden that he not to concede to Mr. Trump if he comes up short in November.

Douglas delves into common, if unlikely, election scenarios, made more popular since the 2000 election debacle (more on that in a moment), and especially in the age of social media. For example, if neither Trump nor Biden manage to get the needed 270 electoral votes, the House of Representatives would choose who’s president with each state getting one vote. Worse still, Douglas notes there’s an almost even party split among the House state delegations.

This scenario potentially could come about due to “faithless electors” not casting their (electoral) vote for whom they’re supposed to. Douglas says there were seven such electors in 2016, the highest in the country’s history. In addition, three swing states have Democratic governors but Republican-controlled legislatures which could lead to “disputes over which election results would be certified or even which electors would be seated.”

The author concedes there is the potential for problems with mail-in voting (or, as he craftily puts it, such ballots “can be susceptible to confusion”) but says “given Trump’s propensity for blaming others, [this] could give the president an opening — justified in his mind, and with or without proof — to refuse to acknowledge the result of a defeat.”

now write one about what happens if he wins, convincingly…

never mind, we’re already living that.

we’re going shopping for laser protective eye-ware this week, and, for those of you who live in places like #Failifornia, see if the nice folks @ https://www.ledesmaarms.com/parts
can make your EBR legal to take out of the safe again.
