Election lawsuits

 The left is fond of pointing out that no fraud has been officially recognized, which with the exception of one case in Michigan, might be true. Gateway Pundit has a post describing the current legal landscape which paints a different picture:

The report as of February 4th, 2021 shows:

  • There are 80 court cases to date based on the 2020 election
  • In 28 cases President Trump was/is the plaintiff
  • In 48 cases President Trump was/is not the plaintiff
  • In 4 cases President Trump is the defendant
  • 21 of these cases have been decided on merits
  • Of the 21 cases decided on the merits, President Trump won 14 of them or two-thirds of the cases
  • 25 cases remain active

This would suggest that the current scorecard is Dismissed = 34, Trump or his people win = 14, Trump or his people lost = 7, In process = 25. At the rate we're going, we've seen about half of the cases dealt with one way or another in the 4 months since the election, so we can expect the remainder to be settled by May if we're lucky. Allowing for the usual delays, I would expect the SCOTUS to rule 7-5 in favor of the Dems when the cases get argued sometime this December.

The link in the quote goes to the raw data for the claims, which is at the same time both extensive and unenlightening. Good luck.
