Rudy Giuliani and Eric Trump held a news conference in Philadelphia yesterday. They're alleging that Republicans have been not allowed to adequately observed the vote count that they've been kept late, at least 100 ft. Away. We're going to roll out audio clips from Rudy Giuliani coming up in about maybe 10 minute less than 10 minutes, actually, and he's very passionate about what's taking place, Not just in Philadelphia, he says. It's going on in Wisconsin and in Michigan and in Arizona and They're very concerned about voter fraud. They filed three lawsuits this morning. So anyway, we're going to play that portion of the story for you in about 10 Minutes. Margins are just unbelievably razor thin. Well, in Giuliani's point that he says, Look How is it that Trump had about 400,000 vote lead with more than 80% of the vote counted and it went away, right? What happened? I think Democrats would say, Well, a lot of those were Democrats that voted Malin write, and they're just getting to those ballot egg. That's exactly what they're saying. No question, by the way speaking which before we get to the network This was not. We're learning a lot more about the election results today. This was not the overwhelming blue wave that Democrats had been hoping for, had been planning for on election Night. No, and it's very, very evident. They thought maybe they had a chance take over the U. S Senate that does not appear that that's going to happen. They were expecting a much bigger night at the House of Representatives, and they did not do nearly what they thought they would do it numbers. No writers who are typically very critical of Republicans are riding this morning about Democrats say. You know, show a little humility because the president even if he loses, still gained 3.7 million votes. He pulled 2016. He picked up more votes this time than last time, right And and with a lot of minority groups, Latinos and blacks, they're saying OK, Democrats, if you do get into power your your plans. We are going to be giddy to go along with them. Half the country is not going to want that. Here's another very interesting statistic from the vote. Do you know that the his critics President Trump's critics said that he was a white supremacist and he's a racist and so on. He attracted Mohr minority votes. In this election, then since 1960 For a Republican, right? 19th more minorities voted for him than they've been voted for Reagan for Bush for any other Republican since 1960. And a lot of that and probably had to do with the economy. They say 80% of the voters that voted for President Trump the economy was number 1 70% of the voters who voted for Joe Biden Cove. It was number one on their mind. Right right there. Yes, that and that That's not at all surprising, right? I mean, that's kind of how we thought it would go here. The top national stories.
