    people are bashing polling....but i'm wondering if it was more a question of user error/misunderstanding.

    one thing for certain.....bloomberg's hawkfish was spot on about the red mirage.

    GOP in a nutshell:

    "In 2021, Republican Party will have more QAnon Members of House of Representatives than African Americans."

    Jim Wright - So, what have you learned?

    I mean, you... | Facebook




    So, what have you learned?

    I mean, you should have known this already, but it's obvious many of you didn't.

    So, what have you learned?

    I'll tell you: people lie.

    That's what you learned.

    "Decent" Conservatives are embarrassed to vote for Trump.

    They are (and note the quote marks before you reach for the keyboard).

    Decent Republicans, or at least those who think of themselves as such, they're embarrassed by Trump.

    They're embarrassed to see what's become of their political party, their ideology, the so-called Party of Lincoln.

    They're embarrassed to see the hate, the racism, the bigotry, the sexism, the nationalism, the Swastikas and the Confederate flags and all the things that so much resemble 1930's Germany -- oh, I don't mean they're embarrassed by those things themselves, I mean they're embarrassed to see Trump waving it around out in the open.

    See, so long as they keep their white sheets hidden away in the closet and they're not actually burning crosses in a black family's front yard or shoveling Jews into the ovens, they can pretend they're not horrible people.

    They can pretend they really ARE living up to those ideals their religion tells them are the ticket to some better afterlife.

    And there's Trump, reminding them everyday who they really are.

    Rubbing their noses in it.

    Some, well, they embrace it. They mount flags on their trucks and shout it from the windows. They'll be the first ones in line when the job of Concentration Camp Guard opens up.

    But many? Maybe even most?

    They're embarrassed.

    So, when the pollsters call, they lie about who they're going to vote for.

    Trump? I just can't. I'm a republican, but I'm voting for Joe!

    And we wanted to believe them.

    We wanted to believe our neighbors and our countrymen really WEREN'T a bunch of fucking Nazis.

    But when no one can see, when they're all alone in the voting booth, then they cast their ballot for hate, fear, bigotry, and more Trump, because secretly, that's who they ARE.

    That's who they really are.

    This is the instinctive, ingrained, institutional racism, the accepted systematic sexism, the everyday bias of our civilization -- the very things women and people of color tell us about every single goddamn day.

    This is the fear that cripples the minds of at least half of our country.

    This is America's religion.

    And no amount of reason will change that.

    It's that story I told you earlier, last week, the doctor who called Trump a "scumbag," but was determined to vote for him anyway, because in his mind anything else was TERRIFYING.

    What have you learned?

    People lie on polls because they're ashamed to admit, even to themselves, who they really are.

    But when they are alone in the voting booth, when they think no one else can see, well ... here we are.

    People lie.

    But in the end, their actions ALWAYS show you who they really are.

    @kingwilly, panama hat & AO - thanks! Yes, I knew that dems are blue & repubs are red. I was wondering why the trend in Penn is different from its NE neighbors.

    Weird - I've had fox news & trump rallies appear on my YouTube feed, and I never watch fox news! Is the YT algorithm pushing fox-Trump propaganda? I'm not even from/ in the US. Must be big brother...

    Nate Silver is calling Pennsylvania for Biden, perhaps by as many as 200,000 votes. Based on the remaining votes coming from Philly and Pittsburg and suburbs and cast early or by mail. Needle in the coffin. 20 Electoral votes putting Biden at 273.

    In Michigan MAGA protestors are shouting "STOP THE VOTE!" meanwhile in Arizona MAGA protestors are shouting "COUNT THE VOTE!"

    Truly Trump and his bully boys are monsters. Utterly devoid of honour, any respect for their fellow citizens, for their country or its constitution.

    He is the archetypical claggy turd that clings to the anus and consumes reams of toilet paper before the final stains of its passage are erased from the orifice.

    If there is such a thing as a divine omnipotence then perhaps we could pray that Trump will suffer a massive stroke and fucking die.

    done Philly and Pittsburg, but the same thing is happening with Atlanta and suburbs as well. Arizona and Nevada remain close and tight.

    Oh we'll know the results.

    Recounts only ever change a few hundred votes, Biden's leads are in the thousands.

    I think the fat lady is singing. Rapaport thinks so.

    A Biden administration and divided Congress is nirvana for growth stocks.



    Key Points

    • “Finally, we can stop fretting about politics and start focusing on business and your money again, because a divided Congress and a blue White House … is nirvana for growth stocks,” CNBC’s Jim Cramer said.
    • “Voters don’t want upheaval, and they certainly don’t want higher taxes, something that would’ve been on the agenda if the so-called blue wave had washed over Washington,” the “Mad Money” host said.
    • After dumping growth stocks and swapping into value plays before Election Day, money managers are rotating back to growth as results come in, he said.

    A point being made on Twitter...

    How broken is the US electoral system when you have to wait to see if the man currently leading by 4,000,000 votes (and climbing) is the winner.

    That's assuming the bald orange turd and turtlehead don't have something else lined up. The rules on electors are suitably vague.
