Also this is setting the stage for the double run off. It’s Georgia yeah, first few thoughts are 1) every voter will be politically fatigued, 2) Republicans will be deflated 3) the black Georgians who carried this election came out extra mega strong because Donald Trump is a racist piece of shit and might not have the same level of incentive or enthusiasm to show up for Ossoff but if the races are on the same day, there’s a mixture of a black candidate and of a Trump ass kisser who needs to be exiled.

I can’t express it enough, we owe black people more than ever. Might have saved our democracy.

That people could vote Biden/Perdue just astounds me.

So right. There is going to be... the largest amount of money we've ever seen going into these races. Every single possible Dem organization and activist movements need to be on the ground until those elections happen. Nothing is more important. And yes, the story of 2020 to me, is the black community has saved our country from Trump. Now we all have to pull together to let Biden be able to pass anything of substance.

Couldn’t agree more. Detroit. Philly. Milwaukee. Atlanta.

A lot of people who vote don’t know who the candidate is and pick name recognition or the name that sounds cooler. A lot of people don’t vote beyond president. I doubt the Biden/Perdue combo was very high but I wouldn’t be surprised. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Trump/Ossoff happened too. Name recognition is super important.

Imagine how sad your life must be to be out in Maricopa county in camo gear screaming at the outside of building to KEEP COUNTING THE VOTE!!! Something the people inside the building are already doing.

I love how confused their message is. In one state it's "Count the votes!", while in another it's, "Stop the votes!"

Honestly, how do these people manage to dress themselves every day?

This was an incredible display of talent, oh my.

His only issue is that I actually understand what he’s saying.

CNN is definitely screwing around. "Race for WH narrows as votes are counted". They still have Biden at 253

Wearing Trump gear, the Phoenix protesters filled much of the parking lot at the Maricopa County election center, and members of the crowd chanted, “Fox News sucks!” in anger over the network declaring Joe Biden the winner in Arizona.

I see Pennsylvania basically decided to stop counting last night?

Georgia looks like Biden will fall just short.

So basically 2 possibilities for the race to be called for Biden today:

- Hold on in Arizona and Nevada

- Pull ahead on Pennsylvania

Arizona, though it continues to tighten, looks like it might just hold.

Not sure about Georgia, it really depends where these votes are coming from. That’s where the NYT needle would have been useful.

Ok so apparently it is not clear if there are only 25k votes left to report or to count, with some yet unreported. If it’s the former I don’t think Biden can make up the difference.

Like they think there might be more than 25k?

That would make sense because at one point there were 80k votes and he was only down by 33k. I thought he would have made up more ground with the pace he was on.

Yeah, I think "counting" and "reporting" can be considered different things, i.e. you have votes that have been counted and not reported.

There's also this:
