    I just saw this comment on Facebook, posted last night:

    “Election is getting real. Just heard the only way Trump can get to 270 is to lose 50 pounds.”

  3. Liza says:

    Biden just took the lead in PA with 95 percent counted.

    This is effectively over. Stay calm.

    • Liza says:

      I’m going to feel better if PA comes in with a wider margin.

      Biden is holding a good lead in AZ, 90 percent counted.

      Biden will win NV but they are the slowest ballot counters ever.

    I wake up to see that the county which contains John Lewis’s district put Biden over the top in Georgia.
    I 😢😢😢😢when I read that.

    I am just waiting.
    Not patiently, but I am waiting.

    I will put up a new post until we get the news.

    This is funny. Nevada is slow to sure. How many ballots could they have?

    So the Squad was re-elected and has three new members. It’s now more like a platoon.

    I love these young people, absolutely love them. We need more.

    Arizona is supposed to update their count tonight.

    At the start of the day there were 600K ballots left to be counted and 400K were in Maricopa County.

    We’ll see, I guess.

    But if Biden wins AZ tonight all he needs is NV and it’s over and done.

    Pray hard.

    But Biden is narrowing the gap in PA, I don’t know how many votes are left there but they had a lot to count.

  9. Liza says:

    What I was talking about. This map gets Biden to 270 if he wins MI, NV, and AZ and he’s leading in all three of those states at the moment. He’s at 237 so they must have called Wisconsin for 10.

    • Liza says:

      What is interesting about this is that I can’t remember the last time anyone won the presidential election and lost PA, OH, and FL.

      Well, it can be done.

      Flipping AZ is everything.

  10. Liza says:

    CNN has Biden at 227 electoral votes after calling Maine. They haven’t called WI, MI, AZ, or NV but Biden leads in all those states. Wisconsin will be called shortly, same for AZ.

    WI = 10
    MI = 16
    NV = 6
    AZ = 11
    Total = 227 + 43 = 270

    I hope this is right.

    • Liza says:

      AZ might not get called for awhile. Apparently the hold up is caused by mail in ballots yet to be counted in Maricopa County (Phoenix and surrounding area).

    • Liza says:

      And Wisconsin has not been officially called but they’re very close, it won’t be long.

  11. rikyrah says:

    I am waiting patiently for the results to come in. Can’t say that I’m not anxious, but, while I couldn’t sleep Election Night 2016, I made it to sleep last night. After he won that congressional district in NE, everything calmed down for me.

  12. Liza says:

    Yes, and I loved it. Great stump speeches by PBO. Democrats did a good job of telling it like it is.

    Rikyrah, remember this guy? He used to comment on TNC’s blog.

    Well, y’all, we’ve waited four years…
