Google Search “Can I Change My Vote” Erupts after Biden’s Latest Gaffe on Oil Industry
Voter’s remorse seems to be setting in for people who mailed in their ballots before last week’s Presidential debate. After Joe Biden’s astonishing slipup in the last debate on how he and the Democrats plan to abolish the oil industry and ban fracking the Google search phrase “change my vote” hit maximum levels.
The Google search phrase rolled in like a gusher in many states whose economy depends on the fossil fuels Biden wants to “phase out” in favor of renewable energy like inefficient and underperforming windmills and solar panels, which are insanely expensive. Thousands of voters in Pennsylvania, Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, Texas, and Arizona all searched for “can I change my vote” in such record numbers the phrase started trending online.
In response the President tweeted, “Strongly Trending on (Google) since immediately after the debate is CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE? This refers changing it to me. The answer in most states is YES. Go do it. Most important election of your life.”
Joe and his dopey cohort of Green New Deal tree-huggers, headed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (sometimes referred to as Alexandria Occasional Cortex), either don’t realize or even care that oil is not just for burning. Oil-based products are used in around 6,000 manufacturing processes and products. The Joe-Cortex plan would plunge the country into a deep depression, because petroleum-based products are used in nearly everything. Prices would skyrocket as, once again, the United States would become dependent on foreign countries for oil.
Even the liberal moderator was shocked when Biden committed the biggest mistake since Gerald Ford claimed that Poland wasn’t under communist control during his debate with Jimmy Carter. Kristen Welker immediately chimed in after Biden said he would get rid of the oil industry with, “Why would you do that?”
Also, the look on the President’ face as Biden did what he does best—get confused—was somewhere between satisfaction and pity. He asked the states who depend on the petroleum industry to heat their homes and sign their paychecks, “Are you listening…?” The uptick in Google searches on “change my vote” were a big indication that people were listening.
Whether a person can change a vote after its been cast depends on the state. It is easier for voters to change their mind about voting by mail if the ballot hasn’t been counted. In that case, the voter can report in person to their local polling place and receive a provisional ballot.
Changing a vote after it is in the system, however, isn’t that easy. There are four states—Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, and Arizona who don’t allow voters to change their ballots once they’ve been cast. However, New York, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Connecticut allow voters to change early votes.
In the meantime, Democrats are hoping to keep a lid on anything that takes the focus away from their signature issue, the coronavirus pandemic. The lid may have been blown off that hope in Philadelphia where police were forced to shoot a 27-year-old Black man waving a knife and advancing on two officers who were backing away.
Later that evening, the usual suspects took to the streets with bricks, arson, and looting. At least 30 police officers were injured overnight.
Philadelphia’s Mayor Kenney said, “I have watched the (shooting) video…and it presents difficult questions that must be answered…”
The answer to at least one question, “What happens to a person who approaches and threatens two armed police is “You get shot.”
