Amid all the frenzied tweeting by Trump and the 56 lawsuits brought by him and his acolytes to obfuscate the fact that he has lost, it is easy to overlook the fact that the final result is not even close. All 50 states have now certified their election results and the Electoral College has formally cast its votes to give Biden the expected 306-232 a margin of victory. In addition Biden easily won the popular vote by over seven million with a margin of 51.3-46.9%. In short, by any measure Trump lost badly and all the protestations by him and his supporters cannot hide that fact. The only thing he can boast about is that he got more votes than any other loser before him. What he has done by fighting it like this is to die a death of a thousand cuts, with a string of daily defeats in different venues.
All 50 states and D.C. have now certified their 2020 election results:
Biden 81,282,376 (51.3%)
Trump 74,222,576 (46.9%)
That's a 2.4 point margin swing against Trump vs. 2016 and a 15.9% increase in votes cast.

Remember Pat Robertson’s cunning but secret plan to overturn the election? It appears that he had the Texas lawsuit before the US Supreme Court in mind because it was going to be argued by Ted Cruz whom Robertson called “a brilliant constitutional attorney”.
Televangelist Pat Robertson on Thursday said that the state of Texas is following God’s plan by suing to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
“God is never late,” Robertson announced on his 700 Club program. “We declared on this program and you joined with me that God almighty was going to do a miracle and stop the theft of our election and the fraud that was being perpetrated on the American people and that God himself would intervene.”
“They should investigate the fraud that is taken place all over,” Robertson opined. “Oh wow! It’s exciting, the time we’re living in but God is in control. But I would ask you to pray as you have never prayed before as this case goes before the Supreme Court because we do not wish to have our election stolen by crooked activity that took place.”
Of course, that lawsuit was unceremoniously tossed out by the court without even giving the ‘brilliant constitutional attorney’ a chance to strut his stuff.
Come on, Pat, I expected a lot better from you. This is such a disappointment. I had thought that Robertson’s miracle would involve at least Jesus riding in on a kraken to smite all the evil doers, but all you were praying for is another lousy lawsuit?
Aren’t Trump and his followers tired of all this winning?
