Election 2020: Oh God It’s Still Happening

WI: 99% in. Biden up 0.7%. Possible recount and litigation incoming due to under 1% margin. For now we can tentatively call it for Biden.

NC: 99% in. Trump up 1.4%. Remaining votes are in districts that stayed open late due to huge turnout. Difficult to see it flipping the result, for now we can tentatively call it for Trump.

MI: 99% in. Biden up 0.7%. Possible recount and litigation incoming due to under 1% margin. For now we can tentatively call it for Biden.

GA: 97% in. Trump up 1.2%. Fulton County’s votes are in, so Trump’s margin will likely hold and we can tentatively call it for Trump.

AZ: 86% in. Biden up 3%. White House furiously contesting that this is still a possible Trump win. They’re probably wrong but the cognitive dissonance of “count EVERY voteā€¦ but only here” is darkly amusing.

NV: 85% in. Biden up 0.6%. Still too close to call though remaining mail-in votes should favor Biden heavily.

PA: 80% in. Trump up 9%. Remaining votes should heavily favor Biden. The Republicans have declared war over the results and will take it to the Supreme Court, as they’ve telegraphed for weeks.

ME: 79% in. Biden up 12%. We can probably call this for Biden.

AK: 39% in, but Trump is up 27% and the state traditionally breaks Republican, so we can expect this will come in for Trump.

There are conspiracy theories among right-wingers that enough votes are being stolen in the mailed vote tally to throw the election. They are wrong.

There are conspiracy theories among left-wingers that enough votes are being hijacked by post offices to throw the election. They are wrong.

Conspiracy theories make baby Lum sad.

Biden probably won. It won’t be official until the lawyers have their way with it. The Democrats didn’t win the Senate so Mitch McConnell gets a veto. Everything will continue to be horrible. You’re welcome.
