    Trump has done a lot of crazy **** in the last 4 years but it is still unbelievable to watch him baselessly question the democratic process while these spineless ****ers around him either back him up or say nothing. How can someone watch this display and not feel ashamed and embarrassed? I don’t care what side you’re on, this is not a President. This is not a leader. This man is crushing America.

    Just woke up.... GEORGIA!! Anyone know it the lead is supposed to hold mathematically?

    Also PA... anyone know how many potential votes are left?

    I’m a little concerned that’ll be too close to call for days or another week because of mathematics and the military vote.

    NV and Arizona might actually still be our best bet today to get official calls so we can finally get this thing called.

    I hope so, I’ve got the man blocked on Twitter, but his followers still manage to get his message across.

    Twitter needs to drop a ban hammer on the whole lot of them. Let them go use parler and circle jerk each other into all the conspiracy frenzies they want. Leave the sane world out of it.

    as voters we rely on our government to make our own vote valid and eligible

    you cant ask population to vote under their guidelines validity and eligibility then come back after and declare those same votes ineligible and not valid based on your own new set of rules..

    im not sure how any judge in state level or any level can make those votes invalid or somehow make it some type of hung jury traffic ticket dismissal to get vote totally invalidated. trump quick to want to move on from voters and in a valid democracy it is not his choice to make

    Momentum is on Biden for Georgia so he will most likely hold that lead.

    PA has about a little over 100k votes to be tallied and 50k of those are in Philly who has been voting for Biden at an 80% rate.

    Georgia will go to recount because it will be too close either way. Dems are trying to get folks to fix their cured ballots to make them legitimate (legal) to help with cushion. Probably be a couple weeks, at least, for the full recount to happen.

    Pennsylvania, there’s still 150,000 votes left, most from Philly and Pittsburgh that will likely be heavily Biden. I would imagine he’ll move ahead today...question is by how much and if it will be enough for networks to call it. There will still be legal battles and a likely recount there which will take weeks.

    Don’t bet on Nevada, although it probably should have been called for a Biden already...state usually take two weeks after voting to get all the votes in for counting...not used to being on the spot. Most of the ballots are from Vegas though and will go towards Biden. Honestly, the only reason it hasn’t been called for a Biden is because AP and FOX would have to call election for Biden. Might be called today, but who knows.

    Arizona, Trump keeps gaining, but not by enough. Still a lot of votes from Phoenix and Tucson so it would be shocking if he made up the deficit. AP and FOX still have the state called for Biden and are unwilling to rescind so take that for what it’s worth.

    good point and if went to any "judge" this is another good argument.

    we need to in future allow for pandemic and any other unforeseen event. we cant have votes not allowed around a natural event..
    what if earthquake big one in ca on day of? this election and the "mail in" aspect is absolutely huge in terms of pandemic or war time or similar.

    it should never come to courts but this virus would be another argument for exceptional times.
    sc cant just say trump because trump if it came to that ?

    I think we can finally put to bed this notion that Democrats got it wrong with Biden as the pick to beat Trump.

    Just look at how horrible the House candidates did. Basically if you were anyone that the propaganda could run ads about as being a scary socialist who would defund the police and have it believable ... you got killed in the areas Dems needed most like Texas. Georgia and Penn are examples of why Biden as both A. A trusted leader in the older black community and B. Someone who speaks well to the rust belt was the best bet to do what was most necessary to win back that blue wall through those two constituencies who deliver for Dems when they show up. I love Bernie, and others who were running but I think we got it right though if our primary goal was getting Trump out.

    This cannot be talked about enough. It’s so incredibly disappointing. This really bothers me to no end.

    I would be shocked if it didn’t favor Biden. Most people think of Seal team 6 or Chris Kyle types when you think of “the military” but the reality is most look like downtown Atlanta rather than small town white Texas.

    so many people saying they fear the far-left, but I’m seeing leftist ideas passing with flying colors all over the country

    Democrats suck at messaging

    $15 minimum wage is a leftist idea. It passed by 20 points in Florida.

    legalizing marijuana and decriminalizing petty drug possession are leftist ideas and are popular

    I remember reading a few years ago about how people liked the ACA, but didn’t like Obamacare...idiots didn’t know they’re the same thing

    “defund the police”...idiotic slogan that was used against them to make people think Democrats want to get rid of the police and have rampant lawlessness

    72% of people in a Fox News voter analysis said they support or strongly support a government controlled healthcare option...and it wasn’t 72% of 1000 people like we see with all these trash polls...that issue had over 29k respondents on their website

    Democrats create more jobs than Republicans...hardly anybody on the right knows that
