Probably for the same reason only a handful of republicans stood up against Trump. Hitler/Trump delivered them the Reichstag/White House.

Assuming Trump looses, which seems likely at this point, I guarantee you that within the year most republicans will tell everyone “I never truly supported Trump”.

Heck, to some degree this has already been happening. Though at the moment from voters only, not so much from the republican leadership... yet.


Yep, they'll drop him like a dirty tissue. He was always just a means to an end for the GOP, a useful idiot that gained them plenty of votes. Once he's of no use to them anymore, he might find himself quite lonely.
Such is the way in the mafia-like World he thrives in. This might happen soon.

As for the election, I wonder why some outlets are calling AZ for Trump... It seems way too early.


I think Trump could genuinely take Arizona, i might be wrong, but he’s certainly lost the election.

Yes, I actually meant to type Biden, not Trump (corrected now)...

I agree with you. Too early to call it for Biden, Trump could still take it. I also agree that it won't be enough, especially now that Georgia is turning blue.

What really surprised me from the outside is that Foxnews actually did a rather decent job with their maps.

I am curious about Arizona. I wonder why Fox News was so fast giving it to Biden.

VoteCast. Both they and the AP developed this a few years back, and it has been exceptionally reliable. I do not blame the other networks for being cautious though. That is not a matter of any undue scepticism, but since they do not use it, and have no equivalent, it is not journalistically defensible to make the call just yet. I am sure internally though that they all have as little doubt as Fox or the AP. AZ will stay blue.

Both the Biden and 45 campaigns are just as certain of this too.

Actually since at least 2008, Fox has had a very well-regarded elections desk and polling operation - probably the best among the major news networks. Don't confuse their news operation with their wacky evening hosts.

It looks like most analyst are now expecting Pennsylvania to go for Biden despite him trailing by 18,000 at the moment.

This would be the last nail in Trump's coffin.

It seems Fox news is no longer enough right wing for Trump voters.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/liv ... cea9e5c1e3

Trump supporters across the United States increasingly say they no longer trust Fox News, the Rupert Murdoch-owned TV network that has acted as one of the president’s staunchest allies in past years.

As Fox News announced more state-level victories for Joe Biden on Wednesday, Trump supporters across the country grew more vocal in their frustration with the network. Some say they have shifted their allegiance to media outlets that lean even further right, such as One America News, which employs a prominent conspiracy theorist as one of its correspondents.

Murdoch and the rest of the Republicans will ditch Trump quite quickly, Trump had outlived his usefulness so he will be cast aside. That’s modern day politics- especially in right wing parties these days.

If Trump loses, his time in politics is finished for good I suspect.

Maybe Arizona will be less exciting than expected. Currently:

Biden is up ~46,000 votes. ~90% is counted, so about 260,000 ballots left. Current data seems to suggest a 44-56 (B-T) split. So ~114,400 B and ~145,600 T. That's is a difference of about 30,000 (31,200 to be exact) votes.

Would give Biden a 15,000 vote edge. Which is without Overseas expat/student/military votes and 44-56 may be quite conservative (and Biden would even survive a 60-40 split); the last few batches favored Biden a little.

The conclusion here; I favor Biden (a little) here, but unexpected things could happen.

Far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones joined supporters of President Trump gathered outside of Maricopa County's Elections Department in downtown Phoenix
for a third consecutive night of protest on Thursday.

Waving "Trump 2020" and American flags, members of the crowd — some of whom were armed — shook Jones’ hand before he stood to address
them over a megaphone, urging them to not accept any potential election results.

"No matter what happens in this election, the fight’s out in the open now!" said Jones on video verified by NBC News. "The real fight starts now."

Interesting to hear a Fox news speaker talking of 'voter suppression' an hour ago. The charge was that the pollsters published inflated figures favouring Biden, thereby discouraging voters from voting (I guess on the basis that Trump voters were misled into believing the result was a foregone conclusion, so did not vote).

A ground on which to query that this was a free and fair election?

All the air in the room there seems contantly taken up by the Squad/Sanders/Warren/ACAB/Defund Police types. If Biden does win however, with his age and being a one-termer, I'm hoping he'll feel liberated or not as beholden to the fringe and can maybe restoke the flames of bipartisanship and coalition building.



All the air of the democrats is taking up by uneducated folks that label those that have other ideas as " socialist/communist/SJW radical" These are labels applied by folks that want to control others. They find east victims in folks that go to Fox News/ Right wing radio to enjoy and relish laughing at others, while they are the ones being manipulated into making others enemies. There are not many real conservatives. Most are uneducated folks that vote against their own self interests.


“Uneducated” is code for “I think he’s stupid and beneath me”; always a winning strategy. Thinking other people vote “against their own self-interest” is another code “they’re stupid and I know better”. Neither of these positions are smart or winning. Dems keep that up and another version of Trump will occupy the WH in 2025.


No it is code for Uneducated. People that never pay attention to those trying to reach them. They barely made it though high school or didn't, and then went to the school of hard knocks. They owe most of their jobs to people that give them employment and tell them what to do. They are resentful and angry and are easy prey for right wing radio since they try to pay attention, but only pick up the key words and never understand what is really occurring. If another version of Trump occupies the WH in 2025, then that will be the GOP's fault as they fail to put forth a candidate capable of leading on the issues. Rather they put forth an abusive and lying fraud, because they prefer the "strongman" to abuse those they blaim for their own failures.

I find it more likely that it works the other way around. Voters may think that Trump is going to lose anyway, so no need to vote for Biden. I think this is part of the reason why Hillary lost 4 years ago.

Voter turnout is said to be much higher than in any other recent POTUS election.
So not going to vote because outcome is a given seems to be less probable?

That being the reason for Hilary losing could be true though.

This happened yesterday. They are also Calling the 2nd district in Maine for Trump.

The AZ votes still need to be counted, but it looks like Biden will still win it.

Georgia has flipped in count to Biden, and it appears that PA will as well.

I noticed that the number of EC seats attributed to Biden had risen from 253 to 264 on one or more US networks. And Trump +1 to 214 (presumably 2nd district in Maine).

I do not understand why North Carolina is receiving so little comment.

Claims (by Fox News I think) that US supreme Court will invalidate the mail in votes in PA.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/liv ... bb7dd7ddbc

It is at this point that Trump has a strong case pending in the US supreme court. His campaign and the Republican Party of Pennsylvania can challenge the vote in the state on the grounds that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court unconstitutionally interfered with the state legislature’s sole authority over the time, place, and manner of federal elections and over the selection of presidential electors.


Hopefully Bidens takes Georgia and Arizona then nobody will care about PA.

NC isn't expected to flip.
There aren't enough outstanding votes to close the 75K, in theory. I think there are 110,000 votes outstanding.

Now if the numbers are like PA and GA, it would be an interesting run, but it looks like NC won't happen

Results there won't be 100% known until the 12th (IIRC) as that's the deadline for any mail-in ballots. Most people don't expect NC to flip to Biden anyway since, unlike GA, the numbers is not quite there.

Georgia has pending 9000+ Military ballots. Highly unlikely the vast majority will be for Biden.

As for AZ, the tendency is Trump might just become even with Biden.

9000 were shipped to the Military, but how many will send it back? Maybe 60-70% And how big will the difference be?

After waiting for 3 days, Biden finally overtook Trump in PA.

The military votes will probably be 50-50. It doesn't add to Biden's margin but it doesn't reduced it either.

The other big batch left in GA is from Gwinnett County (~4800 ballots), which favored Biden by 60-40 right now.

It'll be VERY close, but Biden is definitely favored as he got enough in the previous batches.

Right now, Biden is ahead 1000 votes. Trump will increase his advantage there possibly higher.

As for PA, thousands of ballots received after election night, let the Supreme Court say if they are legal or not.

AZ, the tendency is towards Trump.

This will not be over yet. Yes Trump is less likely to win, but this will likely drag on.

Just read on CNN that:
Trump’s allies have grown concerned that someone is going to have to reckon with the President that his time in office is potentially coming to an end, though they have not decided who should be the one to do it. There has been talk of potentially Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump doing so, sources said.

Pure personal opinion and I could be wrong. - and of course contingent of Biden winning the Electoral College Vote

I think Trump leaves the White House peacefully either Jan 19 or early Jan 20. He does not allow his White House staff or other appointees to assist in the transition. It is traditional for all Cabinet Secretaries and upper level appointees to resign. Trump loyalists do not submit resignations, thus they must be fired in a 'bloodbath' by Biden in the first few days.

Trump has a perfect platform to talk about being forced out by a coup for the next four years, and a LOT of people will believe him.

Yup. He's writing his ticket on the speech and book circuit. Should he lose I expect he'll be a regular on a few of his favorite talk shows "When I was POTUS we did it this way," or "This wouldn't have happened if I were still POTUS." And it wouldn't surprise me were he to become an expert on election fraud.


Who knows, maybe he'll join CNN as political commentator :lol: ?


It would be better if Trump tries for a 'Governor or a Senate Posts' representing his home state.

Georgia has pending 9000+ Military ballots. Highly unlikely the vast majority will be for Biden.

As for AZ, the tendency is Trump might just become even with Biden.

This ain't over yet.



9000 were shipped to the Military, but how many will send it back? Maybe 60-70% And how big will the difference be?


Right now, Biden is ahead 1000 votes. Trump will increase his advantage there possibly higher.

As for PA, thousands of ballots received after election night, let the Supreme Court say if they are legal or not.

AZ, the tendency is towards Trump.

This will not be over yet. Yes Trump is less likely to win, but this will likely drag on.


PA will be legal as they were defined by a legal process, and will the 5 -10thousand ballots matter once Biden leads by 80,000 in PA?

As for Ga, The trend is against Trump, and the next count will put the numbers up by another 3-4 K. Trump can get all the recounts he wants, but at this point the count is the count.
Where ever you go, there you are.

First the military ballots, second the Supreme Court. What’s next? The “total war” Donald Trump Jr. was mentioning?

The Guardian says that they are ready to call PA and presidency for Biden but are waiting for official word from AP.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/liv ... bb7dd7de3b

This is Joan Greve in Washington, taking over for Martin Belam.

At least one outlet has already called Pennsylvania -- and the presidency along with it -- for Joe Biden, but we are awaiting the official word from the AP.


Decision Desk HQ projects that @JoeBiden
has won Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral college votes for a total of 273.

Joe Biden has been elected the 46th President of the United States of America.

Race called at 11-06 08:50 AM EST

Just read on CNN that:
Trump’s allies have grown concerned that someone is going to have to reckon with the President that his time in office is potentially coming to an end, though they have not decided who should be the one to do it. There has been talk of potentially Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump doing so, sources said.
