    Likely because the areas still to be counted is Floridabama

    They probably will when some numbers from those stats start coming in. til then.....

    That's a fucking lie, literally every other country, and every other level of our government manages to do it just fine.

    Why would a recount take any longer for a popular vote than EC? You can have a recount in both and they both take the same amount of work.

    I don't get Politico. Why is it reporting a Virginia win for Biden despite Trump having a lead? Am I missing something?

    Because Alexandria, extremely democratic, comes in late with their results. Happened in 2016.

    Why is trump doing better with Hispanic and black communities? Are these people insane? If they decide the election they deserve everything Trump gives them.

    I think he's been permad and unlike the crazies he actually accepts his punishment and not make 1000 dupes.

    A lot of them base it on exit polls, polling, and historical data.

    It's not the best way to do it, in my opinion.

    Biden only has a 60k vote lead now in Florida.
    A Fetus is not a person under the 14th amendment.

    Christians are Forced Birth Fascists against Human Rights who indoctrinate and groom children. Prove me wrong.

    Wait, you think Skroe is permanban? But we still got people like HealingRain and the rest still lurking around? I really hope I am reading that wrong.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    For hispanics a lot of them despise people like Sanders and what he's selling, and it doesn't sit well with them at all that Biden had to make nice to the lefties.
    @Skroe called it out perfectly months ago. I wish he was still around because he'd be raving at the idiots in the Dem primary for the crap they forced Biden to say.

    The GOP attack the education of this country for a reason. It works in getting stupid people to vote for them.
