    They sent a ballot to every registered voter, and Nevada has never been hugely important on election night before.

    Crossing my fingers hard for Pennsylvania. I just checked the maps and still only 70% of Philadelphia's county are reporting in. With the margins where they are, and with how much Biden has already cut into Trump's on-day vote count that is HUGE.

    Probably that and Republicans in state legislatures intentionally opting not to have the process expedited even when they know shit would likely get tricky with the influx of mail in and absentee ballots.

    Trump will use supreme court now somehow, right? This situation is so disgusting....

    "Oh no, I swore on the Bible. I've done it three times!"

    And apparently that was a big mistake. A loony like this who can't even understand basic religious freedom, separation of church and state, and...um...the Constitution itself which notes there can be no religious test for office, has no place being swore in even once, much less three times.

    But this is America. *sighs*

    It shouldn't lead him anywhere, as long as the Supreme Court guys are as educated as they should be, they understand elections, Trump doesn't.

    Harsh lesson for liberals: Latinos breaking hard for Trump in some counties (not just Florida) means demographics are not destiny.

    Harsh lesson for leftists: downballot Republicans making huge gains across the board while Trump loses means people really think the orange man is bad

    Harsh lesson for media elites: Donald Trump is the first presidential candidate who lost a majority of the vote twice since Adlai Stevenson, so maybe spend your absurd amounts of money on better journalism than safaris to Ohio dinners

    I heard present SC has Republican leaning. Or is it simply more like conservative leaning ?

    It is depressing to see the race this close.

    It’s both actually but even with that, they’re not all that likely to help Trump especially since he tried to get them to overrule
    Pennsylvania’s ruling on ballots just a week ago and got turned down. It also doesn’t help as usual he’s been sabotaging his case with his blatant stupidity and disrespect.

    So the improbability drive is to blame. Should've seen that coming.

    I just don't get the whole poll thing.

    There was an opinion piece in the newspaper today, where they were gloating about how once again liberals in America, and over here in the UK, were tricked in to thinking they were going to have this massive victory by people misleading pollsters.
    And it got me thinking, why lie? It doesn't really effect anything, and if you're so embarrassed by who, or what, you're voting for you can't tell anyone the truth, perhaps take that as a sign you're wrong?

    Because bigots are becoming more cunning these days.

    So Trump actually said "Staph the Count mi mi mi", I thought it was some sort of rage meme.

    Its already soo hard to explain to Trump cultist that couple of tiny irregularities=/=Electoral Fraud.

    Also, what is exactly happening in Nevada?? It's been an entire day without updates

    Robby Mook, probably the most incompetent member of Hillary's campaign, was in charge of the House Majority PAC this election. This election where Dems lost a bunch of seats despite Biden winning the election. Is Mook going to be in charge of regaining the Senate in 2 years? It's more likely than you think!

    With less than 14k votes, can Georgia be flipped?

    Yes actually. There are ~50k votes left to count in Georgia and in the Mail-in Ballots, Biden has been outperforming Trump 63% to Trump's 37%

    If that pace holds, Biden will JUST BARELY overtake Trump.

    Georgia should be seen as anyone's game at this point but there is hope.

    Georgia's almost certainly going to a recount since just a few thousand votes will separate things. Shouldn't make a difference in the election as a whole but flipping Georgia would really help salvage this election.
