    Doubt it. Even if GA doesnt flip to Biden, I just dont see how Trump can pull ahead in AZ with mail in votes still being counted. I dont see how this single state could buck the trend.

    I could be wrong, but I think Biden will be our 46th president. *fingers crossed*

    No, no it is not. No combination of uncalled states results in a tie.

    And if Trump supporters get all uppity about crooked pelosi or whatever... she can claim “the popular vote went to Biden, and we believe that should be the determining factor in this election.”

    A law by the way that is based on slavery and racism from back then. It just seems... these small states that are mostly red... seem stuck... stuck in another time and want to still use the laws of slavery to exert power upon a country that doesn't like their ideas.

    Allegheny County, PA still has 35,413 uncounted mail-in ballots, but elections staff is taking today off for "administrative work" and will not resume count until Friday. "I can't get an answer as to why,'' says @bethanyhallam, a member of county elections board.

    Since the GOP gained seats, it is presumably still true. Wouldn't matter anyway, because it would be the current congress that votes, not the new one.

    If this was, say, a board game, I'd understand if each state was waiting on one of the others to go first and make themselves the target.

    I hope that's not what's happening here. Being afraid to reveal the results of legally-cast votes, for fear of violence, is giving in to terrorism. Which right now, Team Trump is performing.

    That is a joke. But not shocking at all for this country. This should have been done yesterday.

    Wrong, the lame duck congress doesn’t make the pick. The new congress does.

    GA - R 2,432,925 D 2,414,781 99% reporting. Is it enough left to flip?

    60k votes left to count. Biden needs to win 63% of them. So yes.

    What could fix all this mess is to have the same deadline to vote but the count is kept secret for one week. Then release all results at once. No state knows what the other has or doesn't have and there isn't this up and down roller coaster as votes are counted by the minute.

    There is no requirement for the States to deliver the results ASAP. It's generally accepted that it'll be a week or more before an official count is finalized, and that's been the case for every single election the USA has ever had.

    The only difference is that the lead's usually significant enough that it's easier to call earlier in the race. This is a nail-biter not because vote counting is slow, but because the race is so close.
