Regarding DC statehood, do you agree that nearly a million people not getting represented is kinda effed up?

Keeping in mind that two states have smaller populations.

So unless we all turn out to vote in person, Trump has basically made the mail in vote invalid.

He’s going to claim victory on election night, claiming the “live” vote is all that we can trust. Any ballots counted after 11/3 are bad. Will probably find a few rare cases of fraud by mail and then file lawsuit to settle it.

Two choices from there. It goes up to the SC and he gets the decision and win

No court decision but uses GOP states to block electors from casting and giving either person the 270 and it goes to the House.

The House gives the presidency to Trump

You realize I have no representation in the Senate. And there are well over 700,000 of us. And until recently, the majority of them were Black.

But I suppose it’s not a rule that people deserve equal treatment under the law if they will vote for Democrats.

Yeah, but have you heard about the people who want to make DC a state and add SCOTUS judges?

You can make arguments about expanding the court, but dc representation is something that no argument can be made against

The best part is this money will go largely to get out the vote/ground game

Oh, and ActBlue alone has has hit 120 million in 72 hours.

Lady G needs to go.
And this will help to strengthen congressional and state legislative races.

So according to https://www.ncsl.org/research/electi...can-begin.aspx, early / absentee vote counting starts no later than close of polls and sometimes as early as 2 weeks prior to Election Day. Unless I’m missing something, voting in person ASAP should be the goal. I don’t doubt for a second that Trump will claim victory first and do what he can in the courts, but if there are enough votes for Biden counted on the day to provide a decisive victory then surely he’ll be forced to start packing his bags.

I would have said that another impeachment would cost the Dems votes a few months ago, but not now. Time for them to fight dirty, sucker punching and nut slapping for as long as it takes.

Eh. I think this has been a little hyperbolized on twitter and some media. You can’t just declare yourself the winner. If Biden doesn’t concede then the count keeps going. States are in charge of their elections, every swing state is going to have thousands of lawyers already on the ground from both sides.

Every state begins verifying mail in votes as they receive them. So they know how many non-rejected absentees they have. On election night, if half of the ballots are cast on Election Day and half are absentees, they aren’t gonna be like - well we have 1.3 million absentee ballots to go, but we’re tired of counting soooo...
And remember, Some states count mail ins first (like FL). So that’s important. Biden could be up HUGE in FL at like 9pm Eastern time. But we will have to sit and watch it get smaller and smaller just hoping it will hold.

There isn’t enough alcohol for that night.

My hope is that Biden puts the work and money into FL these next 6 weeks, so we can just have an answer on election night.
Another thought is if NC goes to Biden by over 2 points, then we can probably be sure he’s got all he needs.
Or something crazy like Biden wins OH on election night. Then the only question would be, how big is the landslide??

I do. I'd lean toward retrocession for the city.

Of course you would - stick them back into blue states, easy peasy.
