After claiming he won the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden celebrated like never before.
But his joy soon turned to horror.
And now, he and Chuck Schumer are in a full-blown panic thanks to one state.
After weeks of election litigation and unclear results from multiple states, Joe Biden took a victory lap this past week when he declared victory in the 2020 presidential election.
But Biden’s celebration may be premature.
For one thing, not only does it remain unclear whether or not Biden actually won, with President Trump continuing to battle the outcome in multiple key swing states, but even if Biden ultimately wins, he’s unlikely to be able to achieve much while in office.
And that’s because of one state that Biden himself claims to have won in the election.
In Georgia, a state Biden’s campaign believes they won by less than 15,000 votes, now appears to be ready to deal a decisive blow to Biden’s own administration even before he takes office.
That’s because of two runoff elections that are set to take place in early January, before the Presidential nomination.
And Democrats need to win both races in order to take control of the Senate.
But the problem is, the party doesn’t seem to be a favorite to win either race, putting the odds of a Democratic controlled Senate in doubt ahead of Inauguration Day.
The Washington Post reports, “Democrats need to win both of two Georgia runoffs to take control of the Senate. But despite Joe Biden carrying the state, they’re fighting an uphill battle in both races — particularly given they took fewer votes than Republicans the first time around in each race.
Biden won Georgia by about 12,000 votes, a very slim margin in a state where nearly 5 million were cast but enough to become the first Democratic presidential candidate to win the state since 1992. But now attention turns to the state’s runoffs. In those races, Biden received 100,000 more votes than Jon Ossoff, the Democratic candidate in the regular Senate election. Biden also outperformed the eight Democratic candidates in the special Senate election by about the same amount.”
According to the liberal media, Biden allegedly carried Georgia only by the skin of his teeth.
And his Democratic running mates trailed far behind him.
But now, Democrats need their Senate nominees to win both of Georgia’s senate elections if they hope to have any chance of controlling the Senate going into the 2021-2022 congressional term.
Unfortunately for them, Georgia appears to be a bridge too far.
Democrats have traditionally underperformed in Georgia runoff elections, and in 2018 their Gubernatorial nominee, Stacey Abrams, ended up losing the state despite claims from her and her supporters that she actually won.
With the fear of Joe Biden taking over the White House in January still on many voters minds, Republicans also hold an edge in motivating their voters to get to the polls, giving Schumer and Biden much to worry about in the coming weeks as they try to figure out how to win Georgia’s runoffs.
