Trump Could Declare Victory Before Ballots Counted

Rick Hasen: “As President Trump plans a triumphant State of the Union address anticipating his likely acquittal by the Senate, the White House is reportedly awash in a sense of invincibility.”

“Trump’s certainty that he simply cannot lose could have a real impact on this year’s election. Since assuming office in January 2017, Trump has made at least 27 references to staying in office beyond the constitutional limit of two terms. He often follows up with a remark indicating he is ‘joking,’ ‘kidding,’ or saying it to drive the ‘fake’ news media ‘crazy.’ Even if Trump thinks that he’s only ‘joking,’ the comments fit a broader pattern that raises the prospect that Trump may not leave office quietly in the event he’s on the losing end of a very close election. And unfortunately this possibility is only one of a number of potential election meltdowns we may face in November.”

Since he's spent every day in office sowing the seeds of doubt about all the agencies we are supposed to trust, it could very well work.  If you have 45% of so of the American people utterly convinced that FAKE NEWS! is trying to scam the people, how many would decide that now is the time to take matters into their own hands?  Of course it would be a small minority, maybe even a tiny one, but 10,000 people willing to shoot their fellow Americans in the name of "liberty" would be more than enough to pretty much bring everything we've grown over the last 244 years to an end.

Try 10,000 people out to get the man who has decided he is going to be the new emperor.

Though they are a fiasco we as Americans all still do honor the election process and will not sit by idly while someone tries to nullify it. Be it by firearm or just a massive tsunami of protesting people.

Either way, it would be resolving the election through violence, and I don't know if you could put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Violence could only occur if the incumbent refused to leave office and barricaded himself somewhere. Not likely to happen.

We have too good of a court system to allow violence to have to come to be for at least six months of reciprocating accusations and a myriad of lawsuits.

I agree.  This has as much a chance of occurring as Trump giving Alaska back to Russia.

I believe that if Trump is defeated, there will be violence.  Hopefully it will be just a few incidents, but there are just too many cultists who cannot tolerate having their messiah removed.

You are assigning too much loyalty to tRUMP.

When he is gone so will his following be.

Even the deaf stop dancing eventually when the music ends.
