It baffles me too.

It speaks to a system that is breaking down, and an internet world that has overtaken real life.

It’s quite terrifying.

Yea I mean if 4 years of this, and even more specifically 8 months of just a disastrous response to the pandemic results in reelection?

Forget it. I'm done.

Like I said, I have to think the voter suppression efforts play a huge role here, too. Trump screwing with the USPS this year no doubt did quite a number on the elections as well. I just can't reconcile the huge turnout with the race being so close.

Yea they've been jumping back and forth here over the last half hour. You're going to be able to make a lot of money if you pick the right horse.

I am just a tad suspicious that the county that seems to have sunk Biden in Florida is this one

I feel awful for you Americans who are directly affected.

Canada and the US are intertwined forever in a way no other countries of this size are. And because we share the media and because ultimately we’re always going to be the mouse standing next to an elephant (in the words of Pierre Trudeau, when that’s the case “it doesn’t hurt to be alert”), we are suffering through the same (over)exposure to this monster. It’s just fucking EXHAUSTING.

So we are with you, for better or worse, and this is really not where I wanted to be tonight.

Ohio looks really close as there's still a bunch of Dem votes left. And I guess it bodes well for the Midwest. I'm attaching my hopes to that.

AZ though, I'm not so sure.

Case in point. Things that make you go, "Hmm..." indeed.

I wonder if this kind of thing happened in counties in Texas with a high percentage of Latino voters, too. We all saw how much work the GOP was putting in to try and mess with votes in that state in general, after all.

Yeah I don't understand why people are acting like it's over already. A Biden landslide was never statistically likely. Were people really expecting him to win Texas for example?

The early signs from GA and NC, even after FL, were not great. Speaking for myself, there was (and still is) a scenario in which polling errors there would be correlated to the Midwest once again. I think the subsequent results have been slightly better, but we are now in a 50-50 race that was a 90-10 race just three hours ago.

Edit: I'm thinking that the "blue wall" might hold.

I don’t think it’s Texas - not sure anyone here really thought it would go blue, but because we KNOW the Republicans are going to litigate everything that they reasonably or otherwise can, the goal was to not just squeak by with PA/MI/WI but to pad that with at least 1-2 other states such that the probability of an unknown outcome is far less likely and the probability of the courts getting involved is likewise minimized.

The only positive I am seeing is OH and it being a harbinger for the Midwest. But God help us all if this comes down to litigation in Pennsylvania. They’re not even counting mail-in ballots until tomorrow for God’s sake.

A bit surprised that Trump hasn’t declared victory already (on Twitter, obv).

What concerns me more than anything right now is that the polling was obviously way off yet again. If the polling error is across the board, I think it's over.

I'm basing my hopes on WI, MI, and PA somehow swinging to Biden. I think MI will for sure. But nervous about the other two.

So much for Ohio.
It's all gonna come down to PA and he's been preparing to steal that state for months. They have it literally in the bag.

I saw this article about Trump relating to that today. He was like, "No reason to play games".
