Hello once again. It’s Friday, November 6th. It’s been a couple days since the last post, Election 2020 Part 3. What’s going on and where do we stand?
That’s where! Over the last few days, mail-in votes were counted in Pennsylvania. Trump’s lead of nearly two million votes evaporated as the mail-ins were counted. Joe Biden now leads by about 5,500 votes, with about 100,000 left to count. The mail-in vote has been heavily Democratic.
Remember how Orange Julius spent the last few months claiming that COVID was a hoax and that mail voting was a fraud? Well, the Democrats are the people that listened to scientists, and decided that instead of spending all day standing in line with some mouth breathers who want to bitch about ‘muh freedum’, if they had the option to vote by mail, they did. My wife and I received our ballots in early October, held on to them for about 3 days, then mailed them in. They were received and recorded a few weeks ago, but couldn’t be counted until the polls closed.
Also, see how Georgia is slightly blue? JOE BIDEN IS LEADING IN GEORGIA! It’s a narrow lead, and will almost certainly go to a recount, but Georgia could flip for Joe.
Nevada has about 190,000 ballots left to announce. They are all mail-in ballots, and 90% of them are from Clark County, the home of Las Vegas.
Joe’s lead in Arizona is narrowing, but Trump would have to greatly outperform what he’s been doing to take the state. Even still, if…I’m sorry, WHEN Pennsylvania is called for Biden, it’s all over but the crying.
PA, NV, and GA would give Biden 295 electoral votes, taking Arizona out of the mix. Add it back in, and he hits 306.
Same as Trump in 2016. Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.
Now, I’m going to sit back, watch the counts, and see what happens. At this point it’s about padding the lead in PA. Soon it will pass the point where the number of votes left are outweighed by the margin. That might take a few hours. Once that happens, expect the Associated Press to project Joe Biden as the winner and next President of the United States of America.
And expect the biggest temper tantrum in this country’s history as Donald Trump completely loses his shit.
