The U.S. Supreme Court just gave Donald Trump an election win that he wasn’t expecting

Donald Trump had a serious problem brewing. But the U.S. Supreme Court’s taken care of it.

Because the SCOTUS just gave Donald Trump an election win he never could’ve seen coming.

The results of the 2024 presidential election are going to come down to just a handful of battleground states, many of the same ones that decided the razor close 2020 presidential election cycle.

Whoever can win Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Arizona, are going to be in good shape to be able to come out on top with enough electoral college votes to get a term in the White House. In the case of both Joe Biden and Donald Trump, this would mean winning a second term in the Oval Office.

Arizona is already presenting problems for Donald Trump, however. There, the state’s Democrats are trying to do everything they can to create a political atmosphere that’s sympathetic to their cause.

A prime example of this is their effort to put a state constitutional amendment at the top of the ballot, when Arizona citizens cast their votes this November, that deals with the issue of abortion. Democrats believe they have the upper hand on this issue, and they are largely right as the GOP has cowardly tried to hide from the issue of abortion entirely. As such, it’s poured cold water on the conservative base.

Needless to say, Arizona hasn’t been trending in the right direction for Donald Trump and the GOP. But the U.S. Supreme Court’s turned their fortune around with a big decision.

The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that they’d be dismissing the lawsuit from U.S. Senate candidate of Arizona, Kari Lake, that suggested that the Arizona state electronic voting machines couldn’t be trusted for a safe and fair election.

Previously, the lawsuit was dismissed by lower courts who argued her lawsuit had no real grounds.

CNN reports:

Calling the precise nature of Lake’s claim “not clear,” the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals said the lawsuit was based on speculative concerns that the machines could be hacked.

Although Lake and Finchem cited “opinions by purported experts on manipulation risk” in the lawsuit, they did “not contend that any electronic tabulation machine in Arizona has ever been hacked,” the appeals court said. On appeal, the court continued, lawyers for Lake “conceded that their arguments were limited to potential future hacking, and not based on any past harm.”

There’s a wide variety of opinions about that, for sure. But how does the U.S. Supreme Court denying to hear a lawsuit from the GOP Senate contender help herself or Donald Trump?

Go back to the optics. The Left wants all they can get in terms of ammo to use against anyone running for a Republican ticket, particularly Donald Trump for president and Kari Lake for U.S. Senate in Arizona.

The U.S. Supreme Court putting a lid on this lawsuit is actually what Kari Lake and Donald Trump need if they want to have success in the state this November. That may not be what Kari Lake wants to hear, but it’s the truth.

This lawsuit being heard in the U.S. Supreme Court would’ve given the Left the opportunity to paint Kari Lake and anyone she’s associated with (like Donald Trump) as a conspiracy theorist who just can’t let the 2020 and 2022 election results go. Whether or not Kari Lake has a point to be made would’ve been lost in all of the messaging.

After this announcement from the U.S. Supreme Court, she tried to suggest that this was the High Court ignoring important election integrity and security. Of course, the U.S. Supreme Court has a strong conservative majority, with three of the nine judges having been confirmed by Donald Trump himself.

Kari Lake isn’t even aware that letting this go is her best bet to win the U.S. Senate seat from Arizona this fall. It’s also Donald Trump’s best bet to stay away from more bad press that will be thrown his way by being associated with Kari Lake.
