Florida counts its votes early, so as a swing state, we should have a big total out Wednesday evening. OF course Florida is infamous for having some problem or other.
If your candidate is losing, it's because you didn't put enough flags on your truck.

Cute picture but why is that relevant and what is it? Being from Ohio that most resembles a girl I dated 40 years ago.


Shepherds used to put a bell on a wether, because sheep naturally follow a Ram. The shepherd can easily find the entire flock by simply looking for the bell. So a bellwether is leads a flock, but not necessarily in a brilliant way.

Politically a "bellwether" state is one that always votes for the winner. Ohio last voted for a loser when they voted for Nixon in 1960 instead of JFK, so they have by far the longest winning streak of any states.

In the last 12 elections Florida voted for the winner in every election except 1992 when they failed to vote for Bill Clinton. But Florida is never considered a bellwether state because it has so many Electoral votes that often it helps determine the winner of the election.

I plan on voting on Election Day. I am assuming (hoping?) that my wait will be far LESS than usual due to the huge number of absentee ballots and other early voters. Does that make sense?


I will vote on Election Day. My precinct is not of a large size so all should be well. Last spring they merged a few together for the primary and there was still no wait. I do not see why these places with the long lines cannot simply get it together.

I don't understand the reasoning behind a cut off for votes. If your vote is postmarked on election day, it should count. Who cares if that vote comes in a week late. It should still count. There is no rush. Transfer of power is not immediate, it's like 6 weeks. Plenty of time to count All votes

Breaking: Texas just surpassed its 2016 total votes cast w/ one day of early voting & Election Day left to go.

The state is reporting 9,009,850 votes already cast, vs. the all-time record of 8,969,226 in 2016. This is massive.

People's lives depend on this election
The Trump campaign is turning into the pro virus campaign. Trump supports the virus and is spreading the virus with super spreader events

But you need to have a deadline date or else there could never be resolution. How is any ay better if you don't have a deadline? You could say a week past voting day but how is that more relevant than 8 days passsed, or 14 days passed, 180 days passed?

What if Trump agreed and was able to extend it to 5000 days? I think he would like that.

There is a deadline. The states must certify their results by a defined date. How they decide to make that determination is up to each state. I donít care what date they stop counting votes, as long as it was clear to all and doesnít change because of one party or the other.

Oh my gosh. There was a Biden Nazi ad
this week that has a spilt screen of a Trump
rally and a Hitler Nazi rally where the huge
crowd has their arms raised and is
chanting 'Zeig Heil'. I can't find the ad
anywhere so they must have pulled
it. Enough did see it, though, there's
a huge backlash against it.

Scott Adams very seldom uses
profanity, but this is worth seeing.
He eviscerates Biden and his whole
family over this ad. It's pretty
amazing.
