Re: Would Americans really know who won the election?

no.
They'll believe what they want to believe.

Florida and Ohio proved that during the Bush elections.

There will be unrest if Trump loses. There will be some who are devastated. Because he will say it wasn't fair and his biggest fans will believe him.
If the polls stay this far apart and Biden loses, look for the left to be roused.

Portland is in its 100th day of protesting the brutal needless killing of a man by police. Protesters are not rioters. bad people will always take advantage.

It'll be fine. It's just some close states will take a little longer to fully report.

Just brew a pot of coffee around 7pm and sit back.

Our country is founded on the concept of a peaceful transition of power ever two and four years. violence from either , or any, group is abhorrent to our system.
A system conservatives tend to abide.


To your comments;
Rioters are not protestors.
It's not conservatives being bad people in Portland.
And Floyd wasn't killed by police but apparently an overdose of fentanyl.

Black Lives Matter started on a lie,,,; "Hands up don't shoot." A statement never made by the perp in Ferguson. Yet it launched a major political movement of violence that still rages across the nation.

As happens all too often, the lie is published and supported to such destructive emotions that the truth is lost in the chaotic rubble that remains.

Please stop believing lies with such enthusiasm, and more importantly, stop telling them.

Unfortunately, the left believes that these words illustrate a "larger truth"--which is to say, they may not be entirely accurate; but they illustrate the "truth" that America is (supposedly) a racist nation, which gives little or no value to the lives of black people.

Would you actually describe what the young leftists in Portland are doing as mere "protesting"?

In any case, it had nothing to do with the killing of George Floyd; that was just a convenient excuse, for those who were already predisposed to overthrow our system. (I would guess that they are a mix of Marxists and anarchists.)
