They only called Indiana, of the first six states to close the polls

Just checking in.

I am numb. No opinion to offer or comment to make.

See you all later on tonight.

Florida looks like it may be a close loss sadly due mostly to Cubans in Miami. The rest of the country, especially suburbs have swung very much to Biden.

Meanwhile the DNC took every chance to smear Bernie in Florida so they could say he could not be the nominee because he could never win Florida, especially the Cuban community.

Seems like Ohio might be in Play?

I don’t quite understand how the media is calling the various states which have been called so far, but here’s an interesting example. Virginia has been called for Joe Biden — which would seem right, based on the polling done preceding the election, but seems strange based on where the vote count is at the moment. With about a third of the votes counted, Trump has a bit more than 930,000 votes (or just under 60%) and Biden has bit less than 630,000 (or just under 40%).

Apparently they’re expecting a lot more votes to come in for Biden and to reverse the way things now stand, but wouldn’t it make more sense to wait until those votes are counted and Biden actually is in the lead in the count of Virginia’s votes before calling the state for him?

[That’s based on what Yahoo News is reporting at the moment on their Yahoo Elections page.

Or did Yahoo somehow screw up the figures they posted on their map and reverse the Biden and Trump numbers? But if that were what happened, surely someone would have pointed out their error and they’d have corrected it by now. Their map now claims that with 38% of the vote counted Trump is at 1,040,000 and Biden is at 713,000 — still close to 60-40 in Trump’s favor… And despite that, Virginia continues to be colored a dark blue on the map, meaning it’s been pretty decisively called for Biden despite the vote count not being there for Biden yet.
