The nation appears on track to repudiate Trump but not Trumpism, as evidenced by the number of Republicans who are holding on to their seats.

John Kruzel, a legal affairs reporter with The Hill, reports that the United States Postal Service (USPS) data appears to show that the organization failed to deliver mail ballots from voters nationwide.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to attack mail-in votes, which are still being counted and account for delays in election night results.
“How come every time they count Mail-In ballot dumps they are so devastating in their percentage and power of destruction?” the president wrote.
This is an election year unlike any other in United States history. There has been an unprecedented amount of early voting and mail in ballots. Over 100 million people voted before election day even got here.
Frank Luntz, a GOP pollster and political strategist, says a Joe Biden presidency depends on him winning just one of a trio of key states. He says North Carolina, Florida, and Ohio to win the election.

“Ever since the Democratic National Committee server was hacked during the 2016 election campaign, ‘Russian disinformation and interference’ has been the shiny object that Democrats and the mainstream media have used to bamboozle the American people,” Johnson writes. “Because Russia is believed to have exposed the contents of the DNC server, Americans were supposed to focus on the existential threat that ‘Russian election interference’ posed to America — and ignore the anti-Catholic emails and other vile content written by top Democratic operatives and exposed in the incident.”
