The Biden administration, Democrats, and the leftist media are all out in force repeatedly telling Americans it will take days if not weeks to count the votes and that it has always been that way.
The Washington Post, for example, is bleating, “Results are not official on Election Day. States often take weeks to announce the final results.” But that is a recent development created by Democrats instituting mail-in voting and other political shenanigans to give them an edge in competitive races.
“You may see stories or social media posts Tuesday evening that declare winners. But even in this time of powerful computers and other speedy technology, the election process isn’t completed in a few hours or the next day,” the leftist media outlet proclaimed.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted at a press conference, “We may not know all the winners of elections for a few days. It takes time to count all legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly manner. That’s how this is supposed to work.”

MSNBC host and former press secretary Jen Psaki also weighed in, telling Democrats to not “freak out,” it’s a redux of the 2020 presidential election.
“Don’t freak out early alert for tonight-Pennsylvania reports Election Day results before mail in ballot results which will make the early reporting look skewed to Rs because more Dems vote by mail (70% of requested ballots this year were dems) so hang tight tonight.”

ABC News is claiming a Republican lead on Tuesday in the midterm elections is in actuality a “red mirage.” That it will only look like Republicans are winning just like it did in the last presidential election.
And the threat of massive leftist lawsuits has already begun. Pennsylvania stroke-impaired Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman is warning the press to “buckle up for a long week.” He is suing to have tens of thousands of misdated ballots counted in a desperate move to win out over Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz.

The Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman, Ronna McDaniel, is also warning in states like Pennsylvania it could take days to know who has won.
“In some of these states, it’s going to take a long time. This is why we have to win. Everybody needs to be calm,” McDaniel told Fox News.
“We have poll watchers everywhere. We have 100% coverage and in Pennsylvania, we have poll workers, we have lawyers everywhere and we’re going to make sure if we see anything wrong, we’re going to protect everybody’s vote, and we’re going to make sure it’s fair. But some of these states have wacky laws, and we’re just going to have to deal with it and be patient. It may take some time,” she said. “Democrats say ‘democracy, democracy.’ How about just give us an Election Day, voter ID, and make our elections fair and transparent? That would give a lot of people a lot more assurances about the elections.”
Journalist Glenn Greenwald is pointing out that even Brazil counted election votes within hours, “I’d like to note once again that Brazil — with a population of similar size to the US (especially with mandatory voting and a voting age of 16) — counted all votes nationwide in every race within 3 hours after the polls closed. Every race was decided that night.”

Greenwald nailed it when he noted that many countries besides Brazil also count all votes on Election Day in a subsequent tweet. “There is no reason why the richest country on earth can’t, except lack of will (or a desire to have it linger for weeks)” he added.
According to the Washington Examiner, the social media platform Twitter is pushing the message that it will take days to count the votes.
“It’s expected to take multiple days to count the votes, so the projected winners of some elections might not be announced yet,” a message from Twitter ostensibly read. “This means you could encounter unconfirmed claims that a candidate has won their race.”
The Washington Examiner goes on to point out that we are being humiliated by both the French and the Germans.
“Other countries don’t seem to have such issues in their elections. In the French presidential election on April 24, 2022, Emmanuel Macron won his reelection bid against Marine Le Pen. The French cast over 31 million votes, and it didn’t take “multiple days” to count all the votes in France,” the media outlet wrote.
“Moreover, these 31 million votes came two weeks after the French presidential election’s first round, in which there were over 35 million votes and 12 candidates. In both instances, the ballots were tallied on the night of the election,” it continued.
“Another example was Germany. On Sep. 26, 2021, nearly 47 million people voted in Germany’s federal election. The country voted on the successor of longtime Chancellor Angela Merkel after she served for 16 years. Yet these votes were counted the night of the election; results were made available without notable delays,” the Washington Examiner added.
Conservatives are accusing Democrats of trying to commit voter fraud again and the elections are just getting started:
BS…. Are democrats trying to cheat again?

It’s ridiculous that they still count ballots that come in the mail AFTER Election Day. its fine to vote by mail but if it doesn’t get there by Election Day, it should not count
— Andrew Atkins (@Redman443) November 8, 2022
What bs. We’ve always got the results election night–until you guys started losing lately. Try to think for a change.

Telling people, we are going to cheat, so don’t listen to the early vote count. The cheating happens overnight.
