The 2020 election has turned into a total fiasco.
Democrats continue to find votes, and the ensuing court battle could drag on for weeks.
But one sports reporter made a surprising admission about Donald Trump’s election support.
Clay Travis, founder of the sports site Outkick.com, recently said he voted for Donald Trump.
That isn’t a total surprise considering Travis has been railing for years against the madness of the radical left and the rise of cancel culture.
Travis also helped the Trump administration bring back Big Ten football, which spurred the PAC-12 to return as well.
But Travis also found that people within sports media were confessing to him in private that they, too, voted for Trump.
They were too afraid to say so publicly because of the backlash.
The number of men & women in sports media, of all races, who reached out to say they are voting for @realDonaldTrump, but are afraid to say so on social media because of the Twitter blue checkmark brigade in sports is staggering. How many people in all industries are like this?

This has been a growing problem over the past four years.
The Trump Derangement Syndrome of the left has spurred Trump supporters to remain silent about their politics.
And that bore out in the 2020 election.
Even though the results aren’t yet known, the one thing that has been proven is that the anointed pollsters were dead wrong and have no way of reaching the “shy Trump voter.”
National polls were projecting a landslide victory for Trump, but it didn’t come close to happening.
Leftists have made it unsafe in some circles to come out as a Trump supporter.
Conservative journalist Cassandra Fairbanks had her house shot into, and independent journalist Andy Ngo was beaten by Antifa terrorists in Portland who later put a bounty on his head.
Sports media have become very “woke” over the past few years; in 2016, over 90% of sports journalists voted for Hillary Clinton.
ESPN has been the ringleader of the woke movement, and other outlets are getting in line.
It’s unfortunate that journalists have been forced to confess their intentions to Travis in secret, but this is the environment wrought by the left.
This pall of silence has hung over Hollywood for decades, although some dissident voices have gone against the grain.
The final election results aren’t in, but thus far, the 2020 election looks like a repudiation of wokeness.
Trump received the highest GOP share of the nonwhite vote since 1960.
It turns out Americans don’t like riots and identity politics.
Cancel culture is also on its way of being tossed out.
