It’s the second day after the election and several states are still undecided. While many blue and red states were able to finish their tallies by the end of Election Night, several key swing states—which Trump was winning—suddenly find themselves unable to do this job. Pennsylvania and Michigan are complete messes. But one state that’s getting tons of heat is Arizona.
Fox News and other outlets inexplicably called the state for Biden when very few votes had been counted. Over the last few days, we learned that considerable votes had been left uncounted. An “error” reported the total number of votes in higher than it actually was. But the confusion didn’t stop there.
As Wednesday wore on, we kept learning about the hundreds of thousands of votes left in Maricopa County. Data crunchers and even Trump’s campaign were confident it would result in a win for the president. Big surprise, though, the county was dragging its feet getting their job done. So, a group of frustrated Americans stormed the office, demanding answers.
Voters in Maricopa County, Arizona, showed up on November 4 to protest at the Maricopa County Elections Department office as allegations of election fraud and irregularities circulate following the November 3 presidential election.
About 150 voters, and potentially more, arrived at the election office to protest. They broke out in chants of “Fox News sucks!” and “Shame on Fox!” after the Fox News Channel called the state of Arizona for Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden…

You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to wonder at what’s going on. Plenty of states were able to finish their counts on Election Night. Why does it seem so difficult for a state like Arizona to do the same? After all, we’re talking about election officials. This is their entire job. They had over a year to prepare for this election. There is no reason they shouldn’t have been able to count these votes quickly and efficiently.
President Trump was on his way to a clear victory Election Night, when Arizona and other states just stopped counting. And since yesterday, they’ve been dragging out the process. It’s understandable that Americans are angry and want answers.
Many have the sneaking suspicion that if Biden was winning these states, they would have been called already. The delay is simply because Trump has all the remaining ballots and Democrat election officials just don’t want to admit it.
But will this delay result in massive, widescale voter fraud? The Trump campaign won’t stand for that. They have already sent lawyers out to key states to fight and the president promised to take it to the Supreme Court.
And many Americans won’t stand for it either. Other demonstrations are schedules in other cities. Expect other responses if these states keep playing games.
