I do feel for Nevada. The pandemic has crippled their economy probably more than any other state.

I think that’s the problem. We dont have a cohesive country. Multiracial democracy is apparently really hard. What kept us together post-WW2 was the Cold War and reasonably good divided government.

It seems the upheaval of the 60s hit harder and lingers longer here than other places.

150 years ago there was a Civil War with 800,000+ deaths. I’ve spent a lot of time in the south, they spend a lot of time thinking about it.

And fuck. Ohio.

Look I’m really freaking hoping it’s that simple but I’ll believe it when I see it.

NYT needle now has Biden favored in Georgia. That's quite the turnaround. The only remaining votes are in Atlanta, the question is whether they are enough.

this is an interesting thought. the threat of nuclear annihilation did seem to have a way of bringing people together. it's hard to call the 1945-64 post-ww2 period a multiracial democracy though. even today it only really is that way in certain states.

I kind of agree, it almost feels like something that is in product development and not ready for consumption. That said, I think there were some issues with how precints were reporting that messed up the projections.

I can almost guarantee you whatever wankers made it made it sensitive to same-day momentum so it’s 95% Trump until Atlanta starts pouring in and now it’s 65% Biden and in reality the true split was probably.... yknow... 65% Trump like it was all along.
