Absolutely.

The court rulings thus far, and many if not most by Republican judges or panels, have been nearly unanimous in telling the GOP to go fuck themselves. The judiciary has a very, very long history of staying out of elections and very reluctantly getting involved only in the tightest of recounts or to rule on isolated cases and technicalities. No matter what we think of the stacked courts, I really am extremely doubtful that we'll seem them going in with a heavy hand.

The other thing that nobody appears to be talking about but in reality is much more relevant than the courts is moneyed interests, and by proxy, the stock market. If there is no result and this drags on for weeks, with the pandemic in tow, the markets will absolutely crater. There is nothing the markets hate more than uncertainty. It's one thing if you see a margin of 0.2% in ONE state that that ONE state is the only thing that matters - then yes, we're headed for litigation and everyone and their brother will become an opinionated quasi-lawyer overnight. But it really does not appear that this will be the case. If Trump wants to declare victory and then litigate in 6 different jurisdictions, causing unrest in the streets, possible widespread general strikes, riots and who knows what else, the markets will crater and Wall Street will step in. The Republicans in Congress are all self-interested pieces of shit, with a not-small-number of them already planning for 2024. You will quickly see massive defections in an effort for some spineless asshole who sat idly by for the last 4 years to come across as the "voice of reason."

Turnout in Dam-heavy Miami-Dade and Broward counties is apparently really high (expected to be 80% in Miami-Dade when the record is 72%). And some reports that statewide Republicans are not necessarily closing the gap from early voting. But this is all based on registration information, and we don't know anything about (i) how independents are voting; (ii) the level of crossover voting from Ds and Rs. So that's why I said I refuse to believe it.

It might be all the kids' Halloween candy I've binge eaten this afternoon but I'm feeling good and bullish on the results.

Trump sounds super low energy and his campaign isn't being as loudly obnoxious as they are capable of being which I'm taking as a good sign.

I hear you and have the same feeling.

But I think I had the same feeling 4 years ago. But that was more like “people won’t possibly vote for this clown.”

So.

I have the same but different feeling. I also think the revolt against the clown is much bigger than last time and that PTSD is making everyone do everything they can.

I'll let you guys be my rock for now. I'm on edge and any small piece of bad news gets me shook but then again that's just part of having an anxiety disorder I guess.
