The AP has called Michigan for Biden. Nevada's 6, expected tomorrow, would give him 270.

He's claiming that us horrible criminal Democrats cheated and frauded and committed numerous crimes because we hate God and we hate America and we hate everything good and clean and wonderful.

And I'm wondering why the hell we didn't cheat and fraud our way into taking over the Senate while we were at it. What an oversight! :lol:

AP just called AZ for Biden.

Drip.....drip....drip.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

:eh?: Didn't they give him AZ last night or this morning? It's been blue on the map all day.

I changed my mind on Georgia. The JQ Public Polling Group did a little math and we're giving it to Trump by 7,000 votes. Trump leads by 38,000 with only DeKalb County outstanding and by my figures Biden will only get 31,000 there. But stranger things have happened.

Looks that way.

That GA and TX are so close now bodes ill for the GOP in the next cycle.

NBC is saying there are too many ballots still out to call AZ either way.

Did some figuring...using the NYT's up-to-the-minute results, and taking into account the remaining votes to be counted in each state, to win the state Biden would need to take the following % of the outstanding votes in each state. Remember that most/all of the outstanding votes lean Dem...

AZ 40%

GA 60%

NC 66%

NV 50%

PA 62%

He's looking good in AZ & NV (those 2 alone would be enough to put him over) and he's got a shot everywhere else

Polls were a little off, huh?

No surprise there. Anyone who was around in 2016 took 'em w/ a grain of salt...

Okay, so tomorrow, Las Vegas is basically going to chose the President of the United States.

This is what they need to to: Get Biden and Trump look-a-likes, and dress them up like boxers. Televise it from the MGM Grand, or whatever boxing venue would be best. Have a couple singers, showgirls as ring girls, and more typical Las Vegas schtick. Magicians, etc. Put on a little show.

Then the two boxers are standing in the middle of the ring on each side of the referee. The referee is getting ready to raise one of their hands. The referee is, of course, an Elvis Impersonator. Then Michael Buffer starts the announcing: "In the 2020 presidential race, by a split decision of 714,165 to 700,654, the winner and..."

And from there it's either "...and still the president of the United States" or "and the new president of the United States!"

I think I'm on to something here. Just call me the new Nick Papagiorgio! Get the governor on the phone.

Beheaded? Good gracious, no!

I want the bastard to suffer. I can't decide if he'd suffer more if the final count was 270-268 or if the margin was much larger. I suspect Pennsylvania is going to Biden, but still ...

Can you imagine the rage if it was 270-268? :lol:

.50 of political science.

The GOP is barely relevant but for two things.

1. The Electoral College
2. Active voter suppression by the GOP in key states (FL, TX, and GA).

Holding the Senate majority and picking up 6 House seats - and still controlling many state legislatures in a redistricting year - hardly seems "barely relevant."
