Today I talk about the general importance of a peaceful transfer of power after an election, and how flaws in the US system make a coup attempt so much easier for an incumbent president, especially in comparison to a system like Canada’s.
Yesterday, Decision Desk HQ called Pennsylvania for Joe Biden, and along with it, the presidential election. The other networks followed suit, and today I talk about my feelings in the half-a-day or so since. Feels good man.
This episode goes in to the reasons why I think we haven’t seen any media organization call the election for Joe Biden, in spite of the fact that much of what they describe explicitly mentions that it’s effectively impossible for Trump to come back. Lots of potential reasons, lots of frustration from everybody watching.
