I wrote down the stats an hour ago and just noticed that they've changed a bit for Wisconsin and Michigan.

Biden is now showing an even better lead in Wisconsin, and his numbers have improved slightly in Michigan. As someone mentioned above, if most of the votes being counted in MI are from Wayne County, that's probably going to mean a LOT of "black votes" going to Biden.

In PA, GA and NC, it appears that nothing has changed in the past hour in terms of the numbers reported.

I did read a bit ago that Trump is currently leading in PA by 700,000 votes, so I find it unlikely that PA will do a switch and turn in Biden's favor.

So if Biden does end up winning, I think the most likely scenario with that is Biden having taken Wisconsin and Michigan as well as the states he's already been leading in, which would put him at 271 electoral votes -- one more than the 270 he needs to win.

I was born and raised just outside of Detroit.

Come on, Michigan!!!
Still, over 2.5 million left to count in PA and those are mostly mail-in that are likely majority Biden.

Oh, nice! I guess I hadn't seen that mentioned anywhere... that there are still THAT many uncounted votes in PA. I guess it does say that they're only 75% counted, though.

Puppet Biden has it in the bag, I guarantee
I wonder if Trump is starting to feel nervous.

If Biden does win, I'm going to have force myself to not go out and start humping the leg of my neighbor's poodle in pure, uncontrollable jubilation.

My preferred result of a lame duck Biden looks pretty plausible - Susan Collins seems to be doing well in Maine.

This is the best place I found for checking.
Polls were cr#p again, next time I recommend they throw a bunch of chicken bones over their shoulders and figure out the winner according to how they land.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Have they all gone off for a long breakfast or are they counting everything then giving the result? I feel as though nothing is changing for the last few hours.

Well, the mean IQ in the US is below average in comparison to the rest of the world, so go figure.

The term you are searching for is "basket of deplorables". It worked really well in 16. Just sayin'

Does anyone know about the (dare I say it?) recount provisions in these states? I.e. automatic recount if margin <0.5% or so?
Every state has it’s own rules and it all comes down to the margin of victory. A recount has to be requested - it’s not automatic. For example Wisconsin right now is looking good for a potential recount as the margin of victory is projected at less than 1%. State law says if the margin is 1% or less the loser can request a recount. Expect a lot of lawsuits though thankfully no hanging chads 😅

Yeah, it's been very slow since I woke up this morning. I know they've been counting through the night, in the US, but hopefully now that it's morning over there (in the east), the numbers will start changing again soon (and hopefully for the better ).

Down to 1.4m now & the trend according to NY Times is approx 4 to 1 for Biden setting him up to overhaul Trump’s lead. Squeaky bum time!

Apparently this is what the good empathy looks like: not the sharpest crayons in the box, deplorables...

Mkay - how's it looking? I don't have any time to follow the US happenings, who's the top dog? Grampa Covfefe or Grampa PC Joe?

Btw, polls are useless. I think I posted that a year ago...they are Lalaland schtick. They are pretty much as any data we pick to prove any point we want. I think it is not practical nor pragmatic to take them seriously or rely on them. I think even traders agree with me.

Only way out for Grampa Covfefe is if AZ was called too early (it was but I suspect it'll still be right) and he hangs on in in PA and GA.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

Looks like Michigan just turned in Biden's favor!!!

It's now showing 49.3% Biden and 49.1% Trump, with about 90% of the total votes counted.

Go Michigan!

Preliminary estimates indicate the 2020 presidential election had the highest turnout rate since 1900, according to the United States Election Project.

University of Florida political science professor Michael McDonald, who maintains the data project, said Wednesday morning that 160 million people voted in Tuesday's election, for a turnout rate of 66.9 percent. McDonald said the turnout rate was the highest in 120 years, with a 73.7 percent turnout rate in 1900
So whoever wins then nobody can say it was not the will of the people.

You forget that the electoral college has nothing to do with the will of the people. 4 years ago "the people" voted otherwise, but the college overruled the popular vote. Let's hope this time it won't play out this way

Can't have it both ways sweetheart.

What you are implying is the "good" retards voted for Biden, while the "bad" ones voted for Trump.

But what do I know? I'm just a low IQ septic. So there's that

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

If Joe can hold onto his lead in MI, NV and WI then he will scrape home assuming they are "winner takes all" States and then the PA result will not matter which is good because PA is the one most likely to have legal strife.
