In the United States, President Joe Biden's speech, which he delivered a few days before the midterm elections, is being discussed. To date, the situation is such that experts give victory (in forecasts) to the Republican Party. It is predicted that on November 8 she will win the elections and eventually take the majority of seats in at least the House of Representatives. Questions remain in the Senate. If you pay attention to the acceptance of bets by bookmakers in the United States, then the victory of the Democratic Party in the elections seems unlikely. On average, bets in the United States are accepted at a ratio of 1:6.
In his speech, Biden literally stated the following:
Democracy is in danger. We understand this very clearly, with the whole body. In the US, democracy is close to collapse.
At the same time, Biden said that many officials from the Republican Party and Republican activists on November 8 may try to further "crush democracy." Thus, the American president ahead of schedule accused his opponents of allegedly preparing to "undermine the voting process itself." And the 46th President of the United States urged Americans to "closely follow the voting process."
Against this background, the following situation manifested itself in the United States. In territories where (early) voting has already begun, electronic voting systems are used. At the same time, in several cases, voting participants complained that they voted, but the system did not take into account their votes. They demanded that the election commissions conduct a "manual" vote count, not relying solely on electronics. However, this requirement was rejected, since, according to a relatively recent decision of the courts of a number of US states, "manual" counting of votes is prohibited, and in everything you need to trust the machine registration of voters.
Such a democracy ...
Recall that also in the United States there is a voting option by mail, which, in fact, turned out to be decisive in the presidential elections two years ago. As you know, Donald Trump was in the lead until the last moment, and when millions of votes cast by mail were taken into account, it turned out that almost 90% of these letters were for Biden, which contradicts even the elementary laws of statistics.
