Donald Trump has taken a number of cases to court in an effort to turn over the presidential election. In fact, he’s taken 40 cases to court so far that have been decided. He’s won a grand total of two of them: one that allowed poll watchers to stand closer to ballot counters during a global pandemic and another that required vote counters in Pennsylvania to separate mail-in ballots that had arrived after Election Day from the rest temporarily. He’s lost 38 cases.

Marc Elias, an American attorney who specializes in election law, tweeted on Friday when Trump lost that 38th case, a case in which a Republican candidate in Nevada challenged the election results and attempted to demand that the court overturn the results and demand a new election. That request was denied.
The allegation in this case wasn’t against Democrats or the Deep State or Big Pharma or Big Tech. It was against vote counting machines, or rather, their use in tabulating election results. The same issue was challenged in Georgia, where a hand recount showed that the vote count was accurate to begin with.
Trump is trying desperately to steal an election, but so far the courts are not playing along with him. His claims about widespread voter fraud and how it’s responsible for his election loss continue to fall flat, no matter who or what Trump chooses to blame today. It’s long past time that Trump admit that the problem is not voting machines or poll watchers or Democrats or anyone else, it’s just that he’s been a terrible president and Americans are ready to see him gone.
Elias got a lot of support on Twitter, where voters wondered what was next and how much longer all of this is going to take. Read some of their comments below:
