I'm actually not so anxious tbh. Not because I am not worried but because I am completely helpless to do anything no matter what happens. Power through helplessness.

Der Fuhrer held a rally in my home town last night. He was there last year too, on the night before the election. I'm so glad i got the fuck out of that place.

Hmmm andyslash is great but he's tired of his job, I'm torn between reprise and pave. Although I'd first vote for Pave I found out that she may or may not have said some horrible things about a certain subculture of netphorians so I'm not so sure anymore.

Despite being a foreigner, I voted at all 53 polling stations on the Biden bus tour. Then I went home to Venezuela, from where I voted seventeen more times through the mail.

I am awaiting the deposit of 26 Sorosbux into my account.

Even if the polls are as off as they were in 2016, Biden would still be favoured to win. That doesn't mean he's certain to win—a 10% is still a pretty significant chance—but he's more likely than not.

The fact that more Democrats than Republicans took advantage of mail-in ballots, which will likely take longer to count in most states than election-night ballots, means that initial results would also be biased in favour of Trump, with them trending more toward Biden as more votes are counted.

I don't like betting and I don't claim to know who will win, but fuck it… put me down as saying it's gonna be Biden. I'm putting up my 26 Sorosbux.

Cautiously agree but how much will it matter when Trump declares victory in a few hours

Nah, I want somebody to gloat to. In fact, I think we should unban Fuzzy and Poots for one night only.

michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin only just started counting their mail in votes. we won't know for a couple of days.

in the morning it's still going to look like trump is ahead in those states...

but i would be very surprised if Biden doesn't win all three... assuming the new SCOTUS justice doesn't allow the GOP to throw out ballots in Pennsylvania.

this is starting to make me nervous. the remaining states all show Trump leading right now and those are the bulk of the remaining electoral votes. unless the mail in votes make a big difference it's looking like this is going to be super close.

it's like a bad dream

Fox News has called Arizona for Biden. Arizona has been counting ballots for 2 weeks.

Pennsylvania and Wisconsin just started counting a few hours ago.

As the sample size approaches the true value, Biden's lead will widen. Turnout is looking very similar to 2008 in which Barack Obama almost won Texas. Hillary lost because nobody liked her and nobody took Trump seriously. She also only lost by about 10,000 votes in 3 key states.

The president has been having unhinged Twitter freakouts in all caps all night. That can only mean justice is being served. Where it goes from here remains to be seen, but based on votes alone he is going to lose.

Rest easy, friends.

Edit: for some reason last night I said Trump instead of Biden. Brain is broken

Went to bed at 9, woke up at 2, saw that Trump said exactly what he said he was going to say lol

Only need MI and WI. There’s almost nothing in from Wayne county MI or Milwaukee county WI so I think Biden will win but.. motherfucker

Also what the fuck happened in the house and senate

I hate this place so much.

Hmm… what if partisan trends in who uses mail-in absentee ballots aren't as strong as projected and aren't necessarily primarily blue?
