Yeah, this Nevada guy is handling himself well. Obviously a ton of pressure on him.

You know that dude is PRAYING that a couple other states call it for Biden today 

They need to get Alaska guy on TV as well.  I'd like to hear what that guy has to say and check out the cut of his jib.

Pennsylvania SOS said about 550,000 ballots left to count. Could have the "overwhelmingly majority counted today". Pennsylvania could be called today.

Did she have a news conference? I'm jonesing for another state official briefing now.

That was textbook stuff. Meticulous, detailed, clear and straightforward. You could make a tape of that and use it for press conference training.

what makes it even better is he's the same guy that got ambushed by beer/bbq/freedom guy.  nothing shakes him.  ice man.

I say Joe wins PA.by 50k votes.

550k outstanding

If 65% Joe is 357,500

If 35% Don is 192,500

That's a swing of 165,000 votes. Current deficit is 115,000. Net is 50K.

 

I think 65% is too low, but, yeah, it's inevitable.

A normal candidate would concede tonight.

By my rough math, total vote should be about 4,908,000.

There are 49,500 left based on current totals. 13,500 difference.

31500/18000 split needed.

63% for Biden to overtake.

So if *knockonwood* Nevada would get called, what will Fox and the AP do?  Think they'll pull back Arizona or will they double down and keep it, calling a Biden win.

Have been asking for the last day why Fox and AP didn't pull AZ back as it was always possible that NV could then decide it.  Seems like they dodged a bullet with NV's slow pace.

Still, if you are the Fox guy that called AZ 36 hours ago, how much are you betting on Bovada's Trump +210.  If I had my neck out there this long I'd have definitely thrown a big hedge bet.  If AZ somehow flips to Trump that dude is out of a job.  Hell, even if it's close and goes to Biden it was pretty obviously called too soon and he'll be reputationally damaged.  Sorry, but I do like to consider the persona/professional incentives behind some of this stuff.

 

Sorry if this is too off topic.  Back to the numbers...

Making an enemy out of McCain will have proven to have been a bad long term strategy as well.

Absolutely.  I don't think it's going to ultimately matter with the final numbers, but it would have been so sweet if it was.

Interesting tweet from @nxthompson

If Nevada is decisively Biden, as now seems likely, and everyone calls it, Fox is going to have a crazy tense decision about uncalling Arizona. Because, if they don't, they got to call the whole thing.

PA will be called for Biden before Nevada.

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 person of course.

I get that there are still ballots to come in so it makes sense to say they'll be counting until whenever that deadline is. What I don't get is why some states can seemingly handle counting 100s of thousands of votes a day, and others seem to struggle counting 10s of thousands of votes in a day.

i bet it probably slows things down when every single ballot is being challenged vetted and verified now at a clip they may not have been earlier on in the process and also you know the larooshes who are trying to bust in and yell stop the vote or keep counting or about how they like beer and bbq take that to the bank bromigos

That probably has a lot to do with the processing rate. But isn't that happening in PA as well? And they're going to get through 500+K ballots today?

Really really really need multiple state pickup here for Biden for it not to.come.down to a one state difference with legal challenges.

You're fooling yourself if you think there's a circumstance that eliminates legal challenges.  They've already started.

This. With the ####storm circling the folks counting ballots, I give them all the credit in the world for doing a good job albeit a little slow for some people’s taste. I’d rather have a correct count than a quick count any day.

From NBC News:

Georgia's largest county finished processing absentee ballots, results coming soon

Around 1:30 p.m. ET Thursday, Fulton County Elections Director Rick Barron said that officials there have finished processing absentee ballots.

As many as 7,000 vote tallies will be published later Thursday.

And so far they are being thrown out. I’ve yet to hear anyone articulate any validity. They seem like desperation plays.

The farther right you go, the deeper the legal challenges get.  Bannon is talking about state legislatures not recognizing the popular vote and choosing the electors.

Sure...but they'll keep bringing them and I'm fine with that.  Anything to string him along so he has something to focus on other than the country.
