  1. I’ve never understood why people care enough to send death threats.. that is never okay no matter what you believe.

    • @Lone Wolf did you see they were anarchists? And they posted videos on YouTube professing their hatred for trump.

      And American soldiers would eat the Japanese babies

    • McArthur My sincere hope is that you do not truly believe that every or even most of those who identity themselves as progressives are rioting and threatening others’ property.
      And in terms of threats …what is your source- sincerely – I have seen or heard nothing – including on Fox News – that there is a “large group” of progressives who are issuing threats.
      There are always people who have their own agenda – in every single group, just as there are in the Democratic and Republican parties. They are not the majority, yet it seems they are the ones who get the most media attention.
      We are all Americans. Even if I don’t agree with your political preferences, nor you with mine, most likely, my best guess is that we both love our shared country. We have to find ways to live with respect for each other, even if we disagree. Otherwise, what is there? I sincerely wish you well snd would like to think you would wish the same for others, even if they disagree with you.

    • @McArthurI don’t think that word means what you think it means.

    • @McArthur seriously peaceful protest are done by responsible adults. rioting, burning and violence is done by people who don’t vote.

    “They should turn to people that they trust”. The problem is, the people they trust are Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh.

  3. He seems likeva respectable guy. The old school north eastern republican type from the 1980s. The party has purged men like him

    • I had a mentor like this back in the day to understand being a conservative. He was a balance when I embraced conservatism, BUT I couldn’t go GOP, so now, I’m cafeteria politics but, have to align with the Dems. Now I know the Dems, I as a black male was born in it. I know the dirty, from the start till the Dixiecrats. And I’m a student of history and know how the GOP have the racism within them after the migration of the Dixiecrats!

    • @T. The terrible terror if you are so fragile that the idea of a man doing anything feminine makes your brain explode you have a real problem.

      @Mei Chong So the People that signed Affidavits are actors? The Machine’s that flipped votes to Biden is all false? Explain why PA retracted their call for Biden than?

    • @LifeWithFrancine🍦 I think there has been skullduggery from my own side …. the DEMOCRATS ….I also think we have to indulge the president….WHAT HAVE WE TO FEAR IF WE HAVE NOT CHEATED ? After all we did it for 3 years after the last election

  4. This gentleman is the type of politician we need more of, regardless of party or opinion doing the right thing is always goal #1.

    • @jason thomas Most people will do well. However, the flu does not have hospital admissions similar to Covid. My wife provides care for Covid pts. in the hospital and my sis-in-law works in the ICU Covid unit. Do some Research on hospitals in Idaho, North Dakota, and the hard hit areas and you’ll find out they are having to redirect pts. The only legit masks locally available are N95. The other face coverings are more to slow the spread while distancing from others. Please be safe and consider others that are not as fortunate to be as healthy as you are. God bless.

    • @Stan Wilson Maybe you did but Hillary and the Democratic Party didn’t. They tried to oust him for 4 years.

    • Yeah so stop being mad about a recount.

      @sadboyAn objective truth is true for all and does not require belief. If your belief only applies to a very specific subset of the population, it is not an objective truth. Your belief in your deity is nothing more than an accident of your birth location or a very human adult choice.

    • @Conclave luminis no I have spiritual eyes you don’t. We all have a conscience that tells us right from wrong which we get from God read the Bible and you would understand

  5. Al Schmidt comes across as a really sound guy. I hope he and the people counting votes keep safe.

  6. This is unacceptable. These folks are doing their jobs.

  7. I feel so badly for this man and all of the workers who are working to ensure that our democracy works. God bless and protect them.

    • @Katherine Sparkes it makes this man a true American patriot. He’s a Republican, telling the truth, getting death threats all because some people don’t know how to accept not getting what they want.
      In ’16, every damn Republican went on Fox News to call Democrats cry-babies, get over it and to wipe the liberal tears. Trump said over 3 million illegally voted.
      Hillary conceded, Obama transferred power with 2 days.
      But now with COVID raging and Trump hiding in the WH, Republicans say let Trump go to court with no evidence and his supporters cry voter fraud and are threatening violence.
      The hypocrisy is Karen-level.

    • @FinalEvilElpis we will the interstate compact has already reached 200 electoral votes only 70 more left. After that it’s gonna be a full democracy.

    • @FinalEvilElpis a republic is a representative democracy, did you not pay attention in school?

    • @FinalEvilElpis Then I take it you’re leaving soon.

      So true. I pray 🙏🏾🙏🏾that this will be over soon. But I also hope law enforcement will protect these guardians of democracy and show not an iota of mercy when/if they catch these cowards. Trump as the perpetual conspiracy theorist in chief should also be prosecuted for inciting a criminal act for every case that ends up in court 😡. Be strong America ❤️🇨🇦

    I really feel for this guy. I’ve been an election official a lot of years (though I couldn’t this year because of being abroad), and we are heavily trained and work so hard to make sure the election is as smooth and fair as possible. It’s stressful and exhausting in big elections like this, but we do it because the right to vote and voting integrity is so important to us. All of these baseless allegations being thrown around are honestly really insulting.

      Alaska and north Carolina go to trump . Georgia to hand count votes . Election official ” let me be clear we will find people who where not eligible to vote ,double votes . We won’t allow fraud “

    • @Neil Harrington Man ,its done,better luck in the next election.

    • but when you have a sore loser like trump, rumours and fabrications are “evidence”

    • dragongirl7978 – I appreciate Your Patriotism and effort in years past. My wife was a precient captain for 30 years until her health wouldn’t let her anymore. I have never met anyone do these election jobs that didn’t treat them as a noble task to be done with their greatest attention to doing them right.

  9. Funny enough, people proclaiming the lies haven’t discovered… No matter how many times you tell a lie, will never make it truth…
    Imagine that.

  10. Social media has a lot to answer for, and the gullible people who lap it up.

    • @Paco Tucker you got it!!!!! This is America not Iran or Hati.

    • I mean you can blame social media and surely it plays a part. However whats happening here is that the presidents followers act like a cult and are only capable of hearing the things they want to hear, completely detached from reality.

    • Chris NY those are opinion hosts…not regular news media….it is tantamount to entertainment…on all the channels….I thought people knew that? It’s basically an op-Ed…..all the different programs….not really the “news”….

    • The media cant call the election

    Hey look, a Republican being honest, answering the questions and acting with moral and ethical character. Good man.

    • @T0pAz My side, huh? And which side is that? Proving your ignorance by thinking know my beliefs based on a comment. And yeah I saw that article too, which clearly stated the glitch was addressed by poll workers. Nice try though. Once again, Instagram memes aren’t facts. FYI…not everything the media reports is a lie. I’m sure you know that since you obviously think the media that you get your info from is true. But every other media source is fake, right? Again, use your brain.

    • Still havent seen one honest democrat. 😂😂

    • @Sean Richardson Absurd, ineffective article. It says the Democrat election committee of Michigan “debunked” the claims. That is laughable. Would a criminal admit to wrongdoing?
      The article admits there was a problem. I already heard the software issue was fixed in Antrim county. What about every other county? Every other swing state? The same software was used all over. And no, it’s well know that Republican poll watchers were not given meaningful access to watch the counting. This is even on video.

      A thorough investigation is clearly required.

    • @P S Yes, your side. You’re clearly a partisan shill who thinks mainstream media would never lie to you.
      For the record, I don’t use instagram as I have no interest indulging the egos of the models or posting what I had for dinner.

      The software issue was supposedly fixed in one county in one state. The same software was used in every Michigan county and in every swing state. A thorough investigation is still required, unless, ya know… you don’t care about the integrity of our American democracy.

      @Ragnar Danneskjöld Nothing racist btw, just part of the plan to continue getting rid of whites by mixing everyone. The elite believe that brown people are easier to control and just smart enough to work and be content while working.

  14. Yes, Rudy claimed that dead people were voting. The only “DEAD VOTER” is him. AND THE REAL THUGS HAVE COME OUT AND THEYRE ALL TRUMP SUPPORTERS.

    • U sound like an idiot after 6 months of thug riots straight of BLM from the left the Democrats it’s like your delusional or something

    • Insert typical comment: reee we are constitutional Republic not a democracy reee reee

    • @Low IQ Leftist You just listened to a Republican working in the heart of this electoral operation tell you what you are spouting is lies, yet here you repeating them again.
      Internet postings are not facts.
      After 28,000 spoken and tested untruths, you can be certain that what Donald Trump has told you is not true.
      Trump and the Republicans have worked for the last five years at minimum to legitimatize our elections by claiming fraud, but never finding any. Remember the Blue Ribbon Panel Trump appointed in the spring of 2017 that looked for 17 months to find the 3.5 million illegal votes cast in the 2016 election, and shut down without offering a report because the few small, and I mean microscopic or one off, instances of illegal votes cast were Republican in source. Even the Texas women convict of fraud and sent to prison for voting in six election illegally was a staunch republican.
      Stop being an idiot. Troll somewhere else.

    • @cdjhyoung to a Trump cultist, facts are lies, propaganda and conspiracy theories. When their leader cries, they cry. When their leader lies, they echo the lies. When their leader loses, they won’t accept it and create stories to deny the fact. Pathetic really.

  16. Imagine threatening thousands of people whose job it is to count ballots.

    Al Schmidt is an honest republican, so nice to see.

    • I’d be honored if some fellow concerned citizens would take a quick listen to my acoustic piano & vocal YT performance of DANCING IN THE DARK by Bruce Springsteen in tribute to the United States of America and its next President, Joe Biden. Peace and everybody stay safe.

    • So rare to see!

    • Shocking to see amongst Republicans. He is definitely in a minority of respectable Republicans They should be completely ASHAMED. Don’t question why Republicans don’t get votes. It’s that simple! It’s nice to hear someone from the reality-based community, speak the truth and who is doing his job with integrity— unlike the president himself!

    • Thank you for Honest Republicans like this man and the man i am married to – a Progressive

    • @Will Ritter We are in a middle of an election and you want us to listen to your music?

    Imagine if soon to be former POTUS Trump had even a third of this Republican’s integrity? The man is calling it in the middle.

  20. “Some people say…” – Trump

    For anyone paying attention this is called a “tell”. Its like when a pathologic liar says “believe me..” you know you’re about to get lied too.
