Biden's campaign just changed what the swing states are.

With PA, FL, and others leaning Biden, where is the horse race?!

Answer: Montana, Missouri, Kansas.

50% of elections have been won/lost by only 30 000 votes.

Its crazy to me that even with all the insanity trump has done in the last 4 years, that still 6-7% of people will vote third party.

YOU DUMBFARKS. IF TRUMP WINS AGAIN FORGET VOTING AT ALL.

I'm noticing that in both Arizona and Pennsylvania, most people that requested a mail-in ballot haven't received it yet.

We'll see what happens, but they'll need to shaft more than Pennsylvania and Arizona to win.

Wow, I never thought of it that way before.

I mean, except for the 47,825 times people have said it here.  But besides those, never crossed my mind.  So thank you, for pointing it out.  I don't know what we'd do without you.

I like following electoral-vote.com

I don't know how accurate it is against other polling sites, but the map is snazzy.

Currently it suggests that 400 EVs is in play for Biden. Not likely, but there is an outside chance. If that follows, then the election will probably go uncontested.

I think Trump will contest anything short of an 350 EV vote win so it's not just a matter of getting beyond 270 but getting way beyond.

My ballot (PA) shows mailed on 10/7, so we shall see. I'll be dropping it off in person immediately.

As a person born in MO, I'm going to go by the state motto before I get my hopes up (Show Me).

No doubt Biden will cut into Trump's totals back in 2016, but it will still be a 10 point win for him in the end. This state has gotten too far right and the population too far stagnant to be a force in politics anymore.

I'm on the fence about it.  Especially since it's Friday and nothing big dropped yet.  But it's all the Democrats' fault, for sure.

It'll probably be a closer gap than 2016 but Trump will probably still win.

We'll be lucky if Galloway (Democrat) beats Parsons (Republican) for the governor's office.

Exactly. All you're doing is preaching to the choir by saying vote. Volunteer to be a poll worker, like I did. You'll be more useful helping out in this regard.

Don't caution people not to get complacent to the degree that you send them into a fatalistic, depressive cycle. I feel like I'm doing virtual therapy with one of my relatives whose in tears whenever I talk to her.

It's very important to vote, and Biden is polling well. Can't we just let that small amount of sunshine in?

It's crazy to me that with everything done in the last 244 years you don't understand how voting works.  The candidates' job is to get the voters on their side. They want those 3rd party votes, they need to figure out what those voters want and give it to 'em.

If you want them to vote for your candidate, then it's your job, too.  Do some outreach to your local third party voters.

I'm voting for biden, same as I did for hillary, because I'm not insane, but it not the third party voters' fault if the big two won't offer them the platforms they want.
