    Almost like you were told repeatedly it was gonna happen.

    It's not finished yet but it's p damn grim as expected.

Because of Kenya and Kim Kardashian support?
    Conservative black voters finding their home because Democrats offered nothing.

    Guess "nothing will fundamentally change" and "you aint black" really did the trick

    Im honestly stumped about this. This being so close is completely absurd. But so is this entire year.

    As expected, Trump is declaring victory despite the huge number of votes still uncounted.

    I'm bummed that Florida didn't go blue, but it's still going to come down to the midwest, +/- Arizona. I'm not sure where all the sudden doom and gloom came from.

    Because the Midwest is very tight and trending Trump which means we're seeing a Red Mirage / Blue Shift *at best*, which means that it's likely this election will be decided in the courts.

    Also Senate looks bad, and you need the Senate to overturn most of the egregious shit the Republicans have been doing.

    So Trump crying about fraud and demanding that vote counting stops confirms "red mirage" scenario? Though he did again outperform the polls everywhere. What is it that is always the right that outperforms the polls, never the left...

    Sure, but I'm not expecting the courts to just straight up say that millions of absentee ballots cast in WI/MI/PA don't count. Those are currently going for Biden by 2:1 or 3:1 depending on the state. At worst, they may decide that ballots postmarked before election day but arriving afterward won't be counted.

    Yeah, failing to flip the senate sucks. At least it slows the court packing, and since 2016 was a good year for republican senate seats, 2022 will be another shot to take them back.

    I guess because the left is rather prone to infighting.

    Trump has also already won 2 million more votes than last election. Even if Trump loses, Trumpism is here to stay.

    Heres my darkest timeline prediction:

    Trump weeks ago - mail-in ballots are fraudulent

    Trump today - stop the count, i won

    Trump tomorrow - i ordered them to stop the counts, people are saying mail in ballots are fraud

    SCOTUS in a week - 6:3 yes sir mister president, may i have some more?


    The probable outcome is he would win anyways, because :ameridumb:

    Ill just go off the internet for a day, for my health.

    My guess is that they know stopping the entire count isn’t possible, but their achievable goal is to throw out at least some ballots.

    Neither major party will fix the dumpster fire, sure democrats would put a pretty band-aid on the festering wound but your political system is still pretty much unfixable.

    While true there's a lot more to it than that and Trump just actively makes it worse, but we've been over this a million times now.

    Fucking hell, how can it be this close?

    The most fitting quote that comes to mind at the moment is a German one, taken from Faust - der Tragödie erster Teil

    "Den Teufel merkt das Völkchen nie, und wenn er es beim Kragen hätte".

    Translates to ~ "The people never notice the devil, even if he had it by the collar", the German is ofc more poetic, but I'm not versatile enough to make the English one sound old-fashioned. I leave that up to your imagination.
