Where the Election Stands

The only certain results are the Republicans will continue to hold a majority, though shaky, on the Senate while gaining seats which will prove to be insufficient to break the Democrat hold on the House of Representatives. We could simply leave it at that and ignore the elephant in the room, the Presidency. The one thing which will eventually prove inevitable, some states will end up in court and at least one will reach the Supreme Court. Any decision that would be forthcoming from the Supreme Court will take some undefined amount of time, likely anywhere from two or three weeks to two or more months. This might be caused by multiple cases appearing before the Supreme Court. We can rely on the left to insist that the Justice Amy Comey Barrett recuse herself due to being installed onto the Supreme Court in the midst of the election and thus should be ineligible to adjudicate any election case brought before the court. Should she agree to recuse herself, the most likely results will be more four-four wimpy non-decisions. Any reasonable person can expect in such instances that Chief Justice Roberts will side with the left as he has already proven on the major case from before the election.

Here is the surprising way to further decide who has been taking liberties with election law or even playing hanky-panky. The side demanding the loudest for Justice Barrett recusal are the ones who should be most suspect. Their insisting for her recusal actually might prove counter-productive. There is a laudable quality held by Justice Barrett making her almost the perfect adjudicator, she can remove herself and her emotions and personal positions from any legal consideration allowing her to decide simply upon the law itself and its most plain understanding. Her decisions will prove to be both liberal and conservative as such considerations are not included within her decision processes. It will be Justice Barrett’s strict constructionist views upon which one may rely thus those on any other side would likely be leading the charge to recuse Justice Barrett. These assumptions may prove unnecessary as we very likely will have a definitive winner in the Presidential race within the week. The current state has it such that should former Vice President Biden win any of the undecided states, other than Alaska which will go Trump, he will clear the 270-threshold winning the election for President. On the other hand, for President Trump to gain a second term he needs run the table which might prove to be insurmountable. More to follow, hopefully.
