There is ground to be gained in 2022. It's not a bad map at all.

67 million people still voted for Trump and I know that is not the majority of Americans but it's getting damn near half of all Americans that vote anyway. You have become two very different countries and it's a big problem to solve.

Well, Bill Barr and Mike Pompeo being gone is an instant upgrade

Of course, now we need Stephen Breyer to be ok for two more years.

This year is obviously different because of the stratified mail votes versus in person votes. But the issue in Arizona appears to be that there was inaccurate reporting of how many votes were outstanding. This obviously means someone could’ve used that data to draw a conclusion only to get the real data and say it’s now inconclusive.

With that being said, it’s still looking like the situation favors Biden. Same day votes are gone and most left appear to be in the cities.


Yeah I just hope that the prediction was not based on the assumption that a larger share of the votes were “in”.

The irony of this is that the Republicans led by McConnell actually have very little incentive to support Trump in his recounts and other legal nonsense. For them this is almost an ideal result - they maintain control of the Senate, they can handicap Joe Biden from getting anything done and they no longer have the anvil of Trump. So they can start campaigning for 2024 on "fiscal responsibility" like the hypocrites they are and blame the ugly winter COVID months totally on Biden.

I mean both NV and AZ are anxiety inducing.

But conventional wisdom says you don’t want to be Trump there right now. How we feel about NV and AZ... they feel about NC.

The Senate will also be close. You may find a coalition of like Murkowski and Mnuchin and (god forbid) Collins willing to actually govern again.

If this gets dragged out and more ballots are "found," it will only improve Biden's outlook. After all, the GOP has been the voter suppression party. They can't really do much with the democrats in the driver's seat.

We were all very wrong. But not wrong enough.

Around 9 PM last night, Ashley was sitting on the kitchen floor crying because it all seemed so helpless. It was a rough night.

I think I was up for...22 hours? Slept 3 hours and hopped on my laptop for work. Gonna be another adrenaline rush kind of day.

Trump has a lead of 1.4 in NC with 94 percent counted. It looks safe for fuckface.

Nevada's only counted 67 percent, and Biden is leading by 0.6. What's your take on that? They're still counting Vegas and Reno.

I’m staring at an extremely tight NC race. I was wrong about the Midwest reddening (it pretty much held 2016 instead), but I’m damn happy with my map. GA is the only thing that is shocking me.

I'm sorry. I went to bed after the Arizona call, feeling pretty good. Slept 5 hours. Still feel generally good but everything is reaaaaally tight.

Biden will win Vegas bigly, and will win Reno clearly.

It's 86% reporting though, and the outstanding vote is early/absentee which tends to be bluer.

i went to bed around 2 am, woke up for a hot second around 3:30 and then was up for good by quarter to 6.

sleep is clearly optional.

All that's left to count in Nevada is mail-ins and provisionals. That's why there is no true optimism about the state from the Trump camp.

The writing is on the wall.
