Yeah, with AZ going to Biden there’s only 3 that matter still up for grabs. If Biden can take either MI or WI then we get into messy territory where we won’t know until tomorrow at the earliest. If Trump can take both, he can clinch tonight. AZ really fucked him though. 
ABC News seems to only be focusing on the AZ race since Biden is currently winning it. Trump is currently up in PA, WI, TX, MI, NC, and GA but these states are rarely getting mentioned (if at all). In the rare instances where one of these states are mentioned, they are quick to follow it up with "early vote still needs to be counted".

These 2 guys are constantly interrupting each other and pissing on each other's points. Are any political news shows civil anymore or have they all devolved into pissing contests and shouting contests?

I turned those 2 assholes off. The 2 most corrupt people from their parties. Why would any news source give them an outlet. 

On CNN, you have Van Jones crying (literally) about how the political victory may come fir Biden but the moral victory is lacking because Trump is clearly doing very well. Then Rick Santorum is also on the panel and he’s being Rick Santorum. It’s a joke.

Well, for Michigan and Wisconsin, there are still like 300,000 votes to be counted for Wayne County and Milwaukee County, respectively, and Hillary won those big last time. If those all come in blue, these two states could go either way.

Crazy that the entire country could come down to one or two counties in the country. Allegheny County in PA is also still out there.

Well Trump has tweeted that the Democrats are stealing the election and Twitter has flagged it. So he’s freaking out in totally predictable ways.

Here we go - Per ABC News, in Georgia (an "up for grabs" state), tens of thousands of mail-in votes have to be examined by hand to "determine voter intent". How hard is it to complete a ballot? The ballots in Maryland were simple "fill in the circle" ballots. How do people screw this up?

I expect the election results are going to drag on for weeks as the lawyers for each side contest as many ballots as possible to try to either flip a ballot to their side or get their opponent's ballot disqualified. The lawyers are gonna get rich and the taxpayers are gonna be stuck with the bill.

“Erie County seems like one of those counties that swings.” I giggled.

Per ABC News, if Biden loses - it will be COVID's fault. The rationale is that the Democratic party suspended rallies, door to door voter engagements, etc to reduce the risk of spreading COVID. In contrast, the Republican party continued with their rallies, voter engagements, and were able to "get their message out" since the Republicans were not worried about COVID or any risk that it would pose.

So instead of having the expense of an election, they just asked him.

Man the fact that Trump is looking like he is going to win this shows that since the advent of TV if you are a strong candidate with a vibrant personality and charisma you are more like to resonate with voters than any policy you can spew.

Dems have themselves to blame.
They run a guy who is basically months from drooling on himself. Cmon they should have been able to easily win.

Too close to call at this hour. If Trump takes Michigan and PA, he wins. I believe Arizona is still in play and it's down to these three states in all reality.

I think Wisconsin has went for Biden by the narrowest of margins while Georiga and North Carolina land in Trump's basket.

This is Biden's. Michigan postal votes will push him way over the top. 50/50 re postal votes in NC, Penn, and Georgia too, he's odds on to win one of those.

Can we all agree that pollsters are not good at their jobs,though?
