Democratic candidate Joe Biden addressed his supporters in Wilmington, Delaware midnight Wednesday to express optimism as the results of the 2020 election roll in and news networks declare victories in several states for the former Vice President.

Fox News has put Biden winning in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Minnesota, Illinois, Virginia, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Maine.

Biden said that he expects a final result will be announced either Wednesday morning or later, saying it will be a “decision of the American people.” Moreover, he urged his supporters to let the process happen as millions of mail in and absentee ballot remain uncounted.

“We feel good about where we are, we really do,” Biden said.

Biden added that his campaign believes “we’re on track to win this election.”

“We’re confident about Arizona,” Biden explained. “…We also just called for Minnesota. And we’re still in the game in Georgia, that’s not what we expected. We’re feeling real good about Wisconsin and Michigan. And, by the way, it’s gonna take time to count the votes, we’re gonna win Pennsylvania.”

In response to Biden’s speech, incumbent President Donald Trump announced he will be making a statement on Election night as well, adding in a follow up tweet, “We are up BIG, but they are trying to STEAL the Election. We will never let them do it. Votes cannot be cast after the Polls are closed!”

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
