"Incidentally, Curt, this congressional district, according to Cook PVI, is R+14. Trump significantly outperformed in 020...one small piece of evidence that the smoke filled room handlers of the former 18 wheeler driver swiped Pennsylvania." --HtS
How is that evidence of anything?
Your source, The Cook Political Report, has this to say about the election being "stolen" from Trump.
Only in the State of Denial Is Vote-Fraud Rampant
Charlie Cook concludes his report with this.
There is an old chestnut that the late, longtime New Yorker film critic Pauline Kael expressed surprise over the election of Richard Nixon in 1972, since nobody she knew voted for him. Vanity Fair’s James Wolcott checked out the quote. What Kael actually said was, “I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.”
But back to wishful thinking and distorted perspectives. For many people, there are only two possible outcomes to any kind of contest: “I won,” or “I was cheated.” To them, a loss is not only unacceptable but inconceivable.
