***Official 2020 Election General***


Recommended Posts

Already about 140 million votes cast nationwide. NBC News estimating there are about 18 million votes not counted still!? Where are they all coming from? Looks like CA is only like 75% reported, where else? Approximately 160 million votes nationwide is a staggering number.

I’ve been a lifelong Republican who never voted for Trump in either election (so no guilt here).  I voted Biden, which was my first time ever voting for a Democrat. I’m proud to be an American right n

Tommy Nyman  @Tombiznar Who would have thought 2 men in their 70s could maintain an election for this long?

As this goes on you can see the hard work and seriousness with which everyone in the government is taking the process and how dedicated they are to being transparent and accurate. Except for one perso

Question - if both GA senators go to a run off, what is the most likely outcome there? What happens next in that process?

R's win and GA citizens tired of political ads lose.

I'm in Florida on vacation with the wife now, but my son says its a #### show in DE right now. We live about a mile from Biden's house and you can't drive anywhere near there.

This guy is a rapper who endorsed Trump at a rally yesterday.

Trump introduced him as "Little Pimp."

CA probably has 4M. NY probably another 2.5M.

Where does the Senate stand now with the Michigan seat staying Democratic?

With Michigan going to Peters, the Senate map is 48-48 and the Two Do-Or-Die Georgia Runoff Scenario is growing more likely.

Assuming Alaska and North Carolina go Republican, the tally would be 50 R- 48 D.

One GA race is already a runoff. Perdue is 0.2% away from another one.

So if this happens, both GA Senate seats will go to a run-off to determine control of the Senate as the Senate would be at 50-48 projected going into both run-offs (remember, if Dems win the Presidency and get to 50-50 in the Senate by winning both run-offs, they have the tiebreaker with the VP). 

So essentially, Georgia will be bombarded with ads like you've never seen before as both parties fight for control of the Senate. Again, if this all happens. This assumes Perdue's lead drops below 50% for a run-off to occur. If Rs get to 51 by any way possible (whether that be Perdue holding on to avoid a run-off or by winning one of the run-offs), they have the Senate.

Biden winning with the GOP retaining control of the senate would be the best outcome IMO.

Gridlock in Washington.

Saw this on twitter from a CNBC dude: https://twitter.com/ScottWapnerCNBC/status/1324149350088527872

Hearing from some big investors tonight that we could be on the cusp of a great scenario for stocks: A Biden presidency, A Republican Senate, No massive spending “to make the bond market go crazy,” No major tax hikes, A ton of liquidity, A vaccine and “no more of the chaos.”

Yeah, it's shaping up to be a centrist's dream come true.  Narrow Biden win, Narrowly Republican Senate, closely divided House.

Speaking of the House, has anyone seen a reasonable projection for where it ends up?  Doesn't seem like anyone's really tracking the races yet to be called as far as how likely they are to go each way.

What was his comment during his hearing?  "I'm under no obligation to be truthful to the media"

I don’t understand why Tim and others consistently post quotes from bad faith actors like him. Just bizarre.

I have a dream...unlikely to be realized.

This election shows that we should all think more like the founders intended - locally, not nationally.

Our nation is too diverse and politically different (in roughly equal numbers) for big ideas to come from the Federal Government.

If you lean left, there are several States (see what I did there?) for you to choose from. Right, same thing. 

For 30 million people in group A to say the other 30 million in group B have to adhere to what A wants is just really unreasonable.

 

On a tangent point we should all come to grips that roughly half the people we know don't believe like we do. But since that's a whole lot of people we're living with, maybe we we could just be a little nicer to each other because the "other guy" isn't going away.

My left wing friends call me a fascist and my right wing friends call me a socialist.  I am a centrist and in a good spot.

I don't understand how a president can behave this way. He is hereby declaring that he won states that aren't done counting the ballots yet. It's so dangerous. I just don't get it. But obviously his supporters like this stuff. Or do people actually believe that the election is over and Democrats are piling Mack trucks full of fake ballots into states to make it look like Biden won? Does anyone actually think that is a possibility?

Not great.  Dems control house, senate and exec.  They can push tax hikes, regulation etc.  Wall St. doesn't like absolute control.

There are absolutely  a lot of people on Twitter who think this swing in voting is all a bunch of fake votes Dems are pulling out of nowhere.

We had some in this thread around page 54, I think.

Why do you continue doing this? What is your deal?

Because he loves to troll people and then suck up to Joe when "serious discussion" doesn't occur.  It's quite weird how much he will troll for a guy that seems to live on internet political discussions

Arizona and Georgia are controlled by Republicans. They're not gonna let massive Democrat-led voter fraud take place. They're not Chicago in 1960. ;)

What trolling? I got the email, I was startled he would make such a claim, and I posted it. I’m not trolling anyone.
