    Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger says President Donald Trump could have won the state by 10,000 votes ― if he hadn’t discouraged the votes of his own supporters.


    Instead, Democrat Joe Biden won the state by 14,000 votes. Trump has refused to concede the election to Biden and has made unfounded accusations of voter fraud.


    Raffensperger, a Republican, ordered a recount. But he also told Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB that the president hurt his own cause by discouraging mail-in voting, which he portrayed as a “scam.”


    Raffensperger told the station that 24,000 Republican voters who voted absentee in the primary did not vote in the general election.


    “Those 24,000 people did not vote in the fall,” Raffensperger said. “They did not vote absentee because they were told by the president, ‘Don’t vote absentee. It’s not secure.’ But then they did not come out and vote in person.”



    “He actually depressed, suppressed his own voting base,” he added.

    Nice own goal there.

    I called this (hurting his own constittuency) back in August:

    " Without the USPS rural communities will lose out. Often the cost of using FedEx or UPS to deliver mail to rural communities is prohibitively expensive.

    Trump is hobbling the USPS but the folks that vote for him are going to suffer."

    - Young people lean Democrat / Progressive.
    - Older folks tend to lean Conservative
    - Older folks are most concerned about catching the virus and thus have the most reason to vote Absentee.
    - Older folks have higher voter participation rates than young folks

    Can Trump's anti-mail-voting crusade hurt him in key states?

    No one has taken more L's in a year than Trump has in 2020. This is Jay Ellis level.

    Something else to consider is that a portion of those 24,000 might not have voted because they're now dead. Covfefe-19 killed them.

    If only more people close to him and in the GOP had been amneable to standing up to him, they could have saved Trump from himself. Bet Trump has been saved countless times by those close to him who knocked some sense into him or refused to do shit. But Trump ended up firing a lot of folks.

    An obstinate incompetent egocentric narcissist surrounded by far too many YES men/women.

    He could have sold MAGA masks, or better yet given them away for free for a $5 campaign donation. Banded together to fight the evil China on this.

    But nope. It’ll magically disappear by Easter was his game plan

    Were the few thousand majority Trump ballots that they just stumbled upon that "accidentally" weren't counted part of that number?

    Trump's incompetence really hurt the GOP. Now they're missing out on four years of Peak Boomer and their next few candidates in line are dull as a rock (Pence and Cotton).

    He fucked up big.

    Only a complete dumbass would discourage voting by mail, in times when people are worried about a pandemic.

    Shocker, they happened upon another memory card in another county with another 2700 uncounted votes. This is now close to 5,500 ballots that they just "missed" in counties that were majority Trump.
