I really really really want her to lose.

Like really. She is second worst to Lindsey Graham.

I’m not seeing how ranked voting gets her defeated though. I would suspect the race needs to tighten up significantly... which might be possible if the remaining votes are absentee?

From all I've read, nobody expects a large amount of votes that could shift the balance there.

If the remaining are absentee or provisional, than I would say yes.

Id ask mikal. Intuitively it looks based upon the remaining votes available that it’s evenly split over whose territory has votes, plus it might be absentee ballots only, so it could be challenging for Trump to chip away.

I don't get why AZ is not being called by everyone at this point. Biden is +3.5 with only 2 percent of the votes outstanding.

I think AZ has an issue explicitly related to not knowing how many votes remain to be counted, unlike most states

especially since the AP called it last night. Why these others aren't is strange.

Right now, MI looks strongest with Biden probably winning by a couple points. PA, who really knows. WI looks like it will go Biden, but will be wrapped up for weeks in recount. Oh, and I forgot GA, which is looking really slim right now. NC has late arriving ballots, but I would guess not enough.

Choose your own adventure:

1) Early votes get counted first and you are on the edge of your seat wondering if the early lead will hold.

2) Early votes get counted last and you are on the edge of your seat wondering if the remaining votes are sufficient to bridge the gap.

I mean, Fox called it early (sending Trump HQ into a tizzy), so why anyone else is hesitant is confounding.

2 for sure. I never want that feeling of 2016 confidence ever again.

That may be the case, but the sheer number of non-voters is staggering.

Gideon needs to close the gap in Maine if she’s to benefit from a ranked voting runoff, and even that might not be enough.

The Supreme Court should totally stop the ballot counting right now. Then Biden would win.

Stepien saying they are planning on a WI recount and are confident that if "legal ballots" are counted, Trump wins.

Buckle up, we knew this was coming.

Trump is putting together an updated list of enemies.

At the top - Fox News (for calling Arizona) and Cindy McCain (for delivering Arizona).

Even former idiot Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker said that 20,000 is way too steep to gain back in a recount. 100? Possible. But not that much.
