I'm gonna pick Georgia. Because I think it will be beautifully ironic that Florida has now become more backward than f*cking Georgia.

LOL, yeah, Georgia has always been referred to as the poor man's Florida. This Am, Biden has taken the lead. Some updated exit polling numbers. Democrats made up 31% of the total electorate, but 37% of those who actually voted. Republicans made up 29%, 35% of those who actually voted. Independents made up 40%, but just 28% of those who actually went out and voted. Biden did win the independent vote 54-46, but these numbers are still being compiled. These won't be the final numbers just like the final vote counting isn't done.

One final update. White vote, 2012 Obama 39% Romney 59%, 2016 Clinton 37% Trump 57%, 2020 Biden 42%, 57% Black vote 2012 Obama 93%, Romney 6%, Clinton 89%, Trump 8%, Biden 87% Trump 12%. Hispanics 2012 Obama 71% Romney 27%, 2016 Clinton 66% Trump 28%, 2020 Biden 66% Trump 32%,

We had a pretty good sized, bigger than normal third party vote in 2016, just looking at the numbers it seems those Hispanics and blacks who voted third party in 2016 voted for Trump in 2020.

From 2012 to 2020, Blacks voting Republican rose from 6% to 12%, Hispanics from 27% to 32% while whites rose for the Democrats from 39-42%.


It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

Didn’t Florida (along with Maine?) vote to increase minimum wage?
Weren’t they also in favor of reinstating voting rights to Felons who served their time?
Heck, you legalize weed and you’ll be more progressive than NY by that measure.
Don’t be too hard on Florida’s Gregor.
From what I understand, Georgia is a blue state that routinely purges its black voters to keep it red. Been going on for some time. At least the voters of Florida tried to increase voter participation.
Just trying to stick up for Florida some..

Do Nothing Mitch's dear leader has set the bar on what one does if they want to skip the senate. Its really easy and we have all witnessed it. You just make a 'temporary' appointment to the job. No problemo! If you are president you get to do just any damned thing you want.

And, now, its Biden's turn. I just hope he doesn't waste a long time trying to be pals with the Republicans. Obama tried that and got absolutely nowhere.

What a nice birthday present for me! And the cool thing about a Georgia victory is that it's a very strict ballot deadline state. It only accepts mail ballots by close of the polls on election day. Incomplete ballots have to be fixed by Friday. So Trump can't succeed with any lawsuit complaining about ballots received after election day.

I wonder if the RNC will be declared a vexatious litigant after many of their groundless, evidence-free lawsuits are dismissed immediately. I also wonder if Trump's lawyers are continuing to file suits just to please Trump and the die-hards, so they get paid? Good luck with that! Trump is not known for paying any bill.

Well ... when Brunhilde finally decides to sing her final song, I think it will be a bit more than anti-climatic as we all know the all but foregone conclusion to this story.

I never got a sense of anything more than a toss up. However, one thing is sure .... Trumpism will remain a force with which the president elect will have to contend for years to come.

inre waning support from Trump supporters .... Cajun John Wayne ... he's ready for a duel in support of Mr Trump or consider the "Feel my spirit" Congressman.

The "spirit" of Mr Trump continues alive and well in America. They will from this point on sing praises of the son of god ... the gift from god .... the etc etc.

The sickness had found a voice ... and they will sing paeans of his strength and willingness to work for them and the theft of an election by the Democrat cabal of baby eating, pedophiles

How is what you described about Trump supporters behavior (assuming its accurate for argument) any different than the behavior of the liberal class’ defeat at the polls in 2016?

Did they not engage in conspiracies in order to explain the defeat of their anointed one?
We’re we not subjected to years long tales of intrigue and public investigations, dossier mythology, etc?

Were liberals, in essence, rejecting their defeat at the polls and insisting the results of that defeat could only be explained by malevolent outside forces duping naive Americans rather than deal with the current reality?
