I suppose you could get the SCOTUS to go along with that. However, we already have states that split their presidential vote. Nebraska and Maine come to mind. At any rate, nobody is claiming citizen's votes shouldn't be counted, provided they are alive, of legal voting age and eligible to vote. Dead people, people who aren't registered to vote, people who voted twice, non-people who registered, and political activists stuffing ballot boxes are among the things people contest.

I don't think it is quite like that. It reveals what I've been saying for awhile now: the urban Democrat political machine is utterly corrupt, and that's plain as day. What kind of working class urbanite is seriously going to vote Democrat when the Democrats own inner city politics, shut down the economy and virtually destroyed working class people economically, de-funded the police and then fostered riots for a full six months? What Trumpism reveals is that the two party system is the fiction in America. Working class people voted for Trump. He gained among blacks and Hispanics. He ended up with six million+ more votes than in 2016. So to create the illusion that he lost, they had to pad the Biden vote with upwards of 10 million phony votes, and it's too obvious--especially considering Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in all urban areas except Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia and Atlanta. That's not even talking about down ballot. Republicans picked up seats in the house, picked up state legislatures, picked up governor's chairs, etc. This is why I loath people like McCain, Romney, Bush, Biden, and Clinton. They are bad news, and not just in the United States. The so-called Syrian civil war cooked up by the Obama administration is a case in point, or Hillary Clinton's "We came, we saw, he died! (maniacal cackle)" The Democrat version of the war machine is every bit as bad as the Bush Republicans.

Given 4 years of Russiagate bullshit from the exact same people, why would Trump ever concede in this way? He should give them 4 years of hell. They didn't make life easy for him, why should he do so for them?

I'm inclined to agree that it won't happen, but they have already seriously pissed off a huge plurality outside of the Philadelphia and Pittsburg metro areas. I live in an exurb with a dearth of political signage. Once I go out to my houseboat, I see Trump flags flying. I can tell you, those people are not going to go quietly into the night.

Neoconservatives are all in on removing Trump. Hell, Romney even voted to convict Trump on phony impeachment charges for merely looking into Biden's corruption in Ukraine.

It does, and in exactly the same ways in some cases--like where the neoliberals play. It's also why the problem with that approach is that the US will become as ungovernable as the other places where they play.
