    They don't, but there's a segment of the population that wants to keep them on their knees and they continue to get into power.

    Apparently Wall Street is getting giddy at the prospects of a Democratic sweep next week. Mainly because a Democratic sweep and taking the Senate, White House and expanding their hold on the House would likely mean the Dems would pass their 3 trillion dollar stimulus bill next year. It'd also mean an end to Trumps non-existent economic strategies and an end to the constant chaos Trump keeps injecting into the markets.

    Kinda makes you wonder if they are now over-compensating with Trump supporters this year due to the errors in 2016.

    Would be hilarious if Trump supporters ended up right about the polls being wrong, but not wrong in their favor and instead in Bidens favor.

    According to market headlines, since I don’t usually click further, it’s the stimulus not happening and covid numbers climbing. They are anticipating a problem, as the two issue of people getting sick and having no means to pay their way, collide...

    More bad news for Trump: Despite Trump Worlds obsession with the "laptop from hell" as they stupidly called that non-story, more Americans think the Trumps are more corrupt than the Bidens.

    What if Trump declares the election invalid, and the SC rules him the winner?

    Safe to bet there would actually be riots.

    Trump can’t really just declare the election invalid, nor can the Supreme Court.

    They’d have to challenge state-by-state electoral college results in the courts of those states and then attempt to pass those on up through the state courts successfully appealing them until it reached the Supreme Court, then the Supreme Court would have to declare trump the winner of each of those states.

    It’s not an impossibility, but it would require a lot of complicit judges and governors in the states in question, and luckily does not just rely on the “good faith” of trumps newly stacked court to prevent it from happening.

    That’s assuming they will care to follow the rules to reject the election results.

    Next week, at this time, east coast numbers will start to come in... in a week and 3 hours, we will likely know most results from the coast to Michigan... get ready for shit to be lost...

    I'm an atheist and I'm praying to whatever higher powers that might be out there that Trump loses in a landslide. I would have so much schadenfreude if Trump gets his wish of knowing the winner on election night and it ends up being Joe Biden. Seeing his cult melt down would be a bonus.

    Don't look at DOW. Look at Tech. One example, Docusign stock is up 201% this year and third quarter revenue is up 44%.
