Where I Erred In This Year's Election's Dynamics
I'm Jgsf1987, a writer/blogger, vlogger and podcaster. To see my latest thoughts, go to my blog at: https://www.jgsf1987.com/.
I'll admit right off the bat that I was wrong in my reading of some of this year's election's dynamics, as some of them had not come to pass. (i.e., the Republicans recapturing control of the US House of Representatives and regaining their lost federal trifacta). Some dynamics are slowly beginning to play themselves out, meaning that we're not entirely out of the woods yet. I want to make a note to you, my esteemed listeners, watch what the state legislatures will do in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, with regards to selecting their respective states electors for the electoral college vote in December. The reason for me to say to watch those 6 states closley is that their legislatures are controlled by Republicans, many of whom are strongly beholdened to President Donald Trump, who the Trump campaign is pushing to override their states' popular vote and appoint electors that will vote for the president in December.
I also need to make a second correction, as for when the last time was that a state's legislature appointed electors to the electoral college rather than giving the voters the final say through the popular vote. I was right the 1st time, the last time this happened was in 1876, not 1868, in Colorado; the legislature appointed the state's electors rather than letting the popular vote decide which slate of electors would vote in the electoral college.
