I’m starting to get “electioned out” at the moment. I wish they’d just call it.

Damn so PA is doing a presser at 5:30 ct to announce a big chunk of votes, possibly Allegheny Co votes. Wonder if this is what the networks are waiting for

Same here...They are not even bitching about voting fraud. I think a majority of Trump voters are rather reasonable humans. Its just a loud minority of idiots who get all the attention

They're waiting on PA to get outside the recount zone, and won't call NV on its own because since AP called Arizona and it's closer now, they don't want to inadvertently create a Dewey Defeats Truman bit, especially against resentful, violent Trumpalos.

From Nate Cohn, NY Times political/election analyst:

There are two kinds of Trump voters, ignorant or hateful.

Well meaning ignorance is still dangerous.

Jim Acosta reporting that Trump is realizing that a legal challenge in PA would be pointless if he loses GA or AZ.

Lol, yeah right

Haven't seen it posted here, but NV released another batch of votes that expanded Biden's lead to ~23k. From Nate Cohn: "New ballots from Clark County (that’s Las Vegas) expanded Biden’s lead in Nevada. I am not aware of a reason to believe that Trump can overcome his deficit in the state."

That was already the case. They were supposed to separate the mail in ballots received after election day. In theory, that is a relatively small amount.

Regardless the SC meddling in state elections is bad and dumb. What is their reasoning?

I’d like to hear from the President Elect tonight.

Oh yes that’s right. I’m not waiting for CNN to grow the cahoneys.
