Jon Ralston has seen enough now that NV is back from running errands.

I’m not discounting that. I just saw the video that said update official gives update in the the GA election and I got a one minute clip that seemed to end without an update and v sad

So, I know, one thing at a time, but regarding these (what look like they will be) runoffs in Georgia...do we have a legitimate chance of winning them both(and thus control of the Senate), or is that a pipe dream? Should my hopes be up?

If the current senate situation looks like 49-50 Ossoff-Perdue, why on earth would it be getting your hopes up to think he could win?

It’s a near tie as is. Multiple factors such as voter deflation from loss may play a role in the runoff election.

No reason to believe they can’t win one, and if they can win one they can win both.

I wouldn’t bank on it, but there’s nothing wrong with getting your hopes up.

probably pipe dream, but if DJT isn't on the ballot and is out of power and maybe in jail or hiding somewhere in the Persian Gulf, maybe his Jedi Mind Pull on the non-voting right will be gone and an energized blue can make the difference?

or maybe people will say that a D president needs an R Senate for "divided government." thinking it's still 1986 or something.

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said he is hopeful “the bulk” of the remaining ballots will be processed by Saturday or Sunday.

Gloria said the county still needs to process 63,262 ballots, which are expected to lean toward Joe Biden.

Asked about the president’s baseless accusations of fraud in Nevada, Gloria said, “We are not aware of any improper ballots that are being processed.”

The AP has not yet declared a winner in Nevada, but Jon Ralston, the widely respected editor of the Nevada Independent, says he does not see a path to victory for Donald Trump in the state.

Good explanation here on where we are in AZ: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/05/u...tion-call.html

tldr: Biden is still a solid favorite, but they can't rule out the possibility of Trump catching up.

The sheer amount of $ that will be spent per voter in Georgia between now and Jan 5 will be mindblowing.

Warnock and Ossoff have to work with each other and run on the premise that their base which doesn't 100% overlap needs to be heavily encouraged to "vote for one, vote for both".

Warnock is probably the better candidate of the two but more importantly he has a very dependable pipeline of support as a black minister in the state. There is a huge number of people who can be turned out in the black community, similar to what we saw in Alabama a couple of years back. And these are dependable voters. Ossoff needs to work the white suburbs, the grandmas who would want him to marry their granddaughters and college campuses/towns.

I'm sorry but what in the actual fuck is this? How are they not mobilizing every available person to have this count done?

That people saw Osoff disembowel Purdue and deep fry his innards on live television and still voted for Purdue tells me that all the money in the world won't matter.

It's fucking insane. It's "U2 inviting Wiill.I.Am to work on NLOTH" level of madness.

LOL the betting odds on Nevada (97%) are better than Wisconsin's (95%), which has already been called.

No wonder Trump got the lawyers rolling.

Bingo.

Think about how almost half of Alabama still chose to vote for a man literally banned from local malls for being a creep and with a history of inappropriate contact with young women and girls. BUT they lost because the black turnout was overwhelming + enough suburban women were like, we're gonna pass on this one.

It's not impossible, but what they need down there is for Warnock and other black ministers to drive turnout and hope that people just vote for Ossoff at the same time.
