Prediction: Biden won't concede under any circumstances

Joe Biden & Donald TrumpA conservative author and scholar is concerned about how Democrats clearly have no intention of allowing Donald Trump to be re-elected as president of the United States.

OneNewsNow recently reported that even some left-wing groups are predicting a Trump victory on Election Day – a turnout they fully plan to fight. And with the president surging in the polls and Joe Biden's campaign scrambling to protect a candidate who many perceive as having reduced mental acuity, the Democrats are pushing hard for mail-in voting in key swing states.

The Stakes: America at the Point of No Return author Michael Anton, who served as a senior national security official in the Trump administration, recently appeared on "Life, Liberty, & Levin" on the Fox News Channel to talk about this.

"The Democrats are talking openly about not accepting the results of the November election," he noted. "There are 10 or 12 data points at this point one could point to; to me, the strongest is when Hillary Clinton herself, who lost to Donald Trump in 2016, said Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances. I mean 'any' would include a 50-state landslide -- not that I'm predicting that."

Anton believes the Democrats are prepared to do exactly what Clinton suggests.

"If they win, if Joe Biden wins on November 3rd, then it's over, and we stop counting the votes," he foresees. "If it looks like the president has won on November 3rd, then we just keep counting until Joe Biden pulls ahead in certain states and tips the Electoral College to him -- however long that takes."

"In all of my life, anytime there's a close race and it goes into a recount, I can think of only one prominent example when the Republican won," Anton adds. 

That was in Florida in 2000, when "the Supreme Court had to step in and shut it down."
