One thing even his opponents concede about President Trump, and we hope they’ll soon be doing lots of conceding, is that he is as constant as the North star.
Love him, like him, loathe him, hate him, he is a known quantity. You know who and what you are voting for when you vote for him. But Joe Biden is trying to be everything to everybody. To moderates he says he’s the guy who beat the socialist. To hard leftists he’s the Trump slayer. To the media and the liberal establishment he will be an employment office.
Thus some of those people may realize the con and thus are having buyer’s remorse after voting early. Not Trump supporters, he is consistently who he is and they know it. Now, with the Biden Burisma scandal getting some play and Biden refusing to lay out his own virus plan, after slamming Trump on his, voters in battleground states are wondering if they can change their vote, likely from Biden to Trump.
FNC: “More than 92 million Americans have already cast their ballots ahead of Election Day – but some might be wondering if they can change that vote, according to Google Trends. Google searches of the phrase ‘can I change my vote’ peaked Tuesday morning in the U.S. around 6 a.m. ET. One of the subregions where the phrase began trending at one point was in Delaware, the state Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden represented in the Senate for 36 years. Other subregions included battleground states such as Maine, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arizona, according to Trend data at various points throughout Tuesday morning.”
Objective reporting for the educated American.
There are different rules in different states. In New York you change your mind. You can show up to your polling place during early voting or on Election Day and cast a vote. Then the absentee ballot is negated.
In New Hampshire you can go to the polls on Election Day during the first hour they’re open. There you can vote in person. Mail-in ballot then canceled.
Strongly Trending (Google) since immediately after the second 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!

Other states also allow you to change your vote. But the deadline to do so has passed.
As of Sunday, the 92 million have voted early in the 2020 presidential election. That is a record early turnout. In 2016, 47.2 million early votes were cast in the presidential election, according to data from the U.S. Elections Project. So, for the few brave Bidenistas who read this column, go, change your vote if you can. You know you want to.
