The truth, as confirmed by an audit of Georgia’s votes, is that Biden won this election. It’s highly unlikely that any recounts will change that. And we’re long past the point that candidates in Trump’s position have conceded in previous races.
In other words, the Georgia count is consistent with the idea that this election was well run and on the level.
We have every reason to believe that recounts in other states will absolutely confirm that, despite wild conspiracy theories trotted out by Trump’s legal team.
Beyond Georgia, Trump would need to win at least two recounts where Biden’s advantage is at least 8 times as large as the shift that we saw in the Georgia audit. It’s just not realistic.
Gore had reason to fight on from the point of view of actually overturning the result. Trump has none.
Instead, Trump’s refusing to concede for a longer period than anyone in modern memory who was in his electoral position.
Their opponents in all of these elections conceded within 24 hours of the polls closing, including Thomas Dewey, whose deficit against Truman was less than a point in the states he needed to swing in his direction to win. Now, this year was unique in so far as it took a while to count enough mail ballots cast amid a global pandemic to know for sure where this election was heading.
Still, the result of the 2020 election has been known for two weeks now. History and statistics say it’s time for Trump to give up the battle.
