I'm going to be a poll watcher on the day of. I doubt my sleepy suburb will have anything...at all...all day...but I will be there just in case.

Then I'm gonna come home, watch Black Sheep (as is tradition), and not engage with any reporting till the next morning. I expect election night to be useless for knowing anything.

And I know that if I watch thing in real time I'll just get angry drunk by 9 and have to go to bed anyway.

Media outlets will state with certainty that exit polling is dead since it's catching GOP lieutenant governors cheating in the act and they feel uncomfortable knowing that.

There are things that we know for certain.

Election night will occur on the latter part of a day.

During it, time will pass... first seconds, then minutes, then hours.

And after the sun has risen, it will no longer be election night.

If the election is close, it may initially look like President Donald Trump is winning, regardless of the final outcome

Lol, I guess all the people claiming Trump will not concede the election are applauding BuzzFeed sowing doubt into the election process.

Clarence Thomas resigns, giving another SCOTUS pick to the GOP before January 1.

If there was ever a perfect moment to invade the USA, it would be this election night. Nobody would be reporting on it, nobody would be rushing to the beach to stop it, and the social media footage would just disappear into the general images of the rest of the night. If a surprise foe were to appear, like Nepal or Andorra or Atlantis or Mars or whoever, it would probably be a few days before the occupied cities even realized it was an invasion and not some National Guard and/or weirdo militia who deployed to keep the peace.

An "election" is a formal and organized choice by vote of a person for a political office or other position. The United States, which is the country many of us live in, will be holding an election on November 3, 2020, most notably for the office of President. The President is the person who is the elected head of state in most republics.

On the night of the day of this election, things will happen, such as tallies of votes, which are formal indications of a choice between two or more candidates or courses of action, expressed typically through a ballot or a show of hands or by voice, in this case ballots, being reported. These reports will eventually give us an idea as to who is the winner of the election. Winners are person or things that win something.

I was fourteen when the 2000 nonsense was going down and I remember one day after the election we were sitting in class waiting for the teacher and everyone was like "ermagherd, who's the President, ermagherd!" Our math teacher - prone to terrible dad jokes - came in and said "I know who the President is." And we were like "ermagherd, who?" And he said "Bill Clinton, at least until January. Now get your books out."

I'm going to vote early.

Then yeah, I'll probably join the rolls of the Fark permabanned.
 
2020-10-28 2:19:26 AM  
So much gloom. What will happen is the record early votes will be announced for Florida and NC at about 8 eastern. All signs are that those will be massively in favor of Biden. The ballots cast on election day will dribble in during the early evening with Trump slowly getting closer while every talking head tries to come up with scenarios for him to win. By 11 pm, Tx will announce their record early votes, also likely to favor Biden. Even if Trump eventually wins all three of these must win states, the entire election night coverage will be about how far behind he is.
 
2020-10-28 2:19:51 AM  
If it's anything like 2018 538 will muck up its early reporting percentages, causing a hundred Farkers to go into meltdown. At least two will wail "What is going ON???" in the most pathetic whining tone possible. And then suddenly everything will shift back to normal and follow the predicted pattern.
 
2020-10-28 2:24:52 AM  
This is EXACTLY what is going to happen. I have Tuesday off from work so I'm going to start drinking EARLY (I mean a mimosa by let's say 10am). Then, I'll get a heavy (7 course) Mexican lunch (the size is smaller), accompanied by tequila. I'll move to something lighter early afternoon, but then switch to martinis later on. I will see the results coming up at 7,8 and 9pm EST to get a sense of what is going on (I think Biden will be meeting expectations and Trump will be underperforming) and then I'll black out until 5am when I get up to exercise (light with the heavy hangover) and work.
 
2020-10-28 2:29:28 AM  
What will happen?
Biden will win popular vote by more than 3 million.

GOP shenanigans will be everywhere.
That much we know.

How much cheating will they get away with is the only real question left worth asking and the answer is we do not know.

Bennie Crabtree: If there was ever a perfect moment to invade the USA, it would be this election night. Nobody would be reporting on it, nobody would be rushing to the beach to stop it, and the social media footage would just disappear into the general images of the rest of the night. If a surprise foe were to appear, like Nepal or Andorra or Atlantis or Mars or whoever, it would probably be a few days before the occupied cities even realized it was an invasion and not some National Guard and/or weirdo militia who deployed to keep the peace.


Except that the heavy lift capacity for an invasion force across either ocean is a logistical impossibility.  The ability simply doesn't exist, even if complete unopposed and you had every cargo ship on the planet including the US ones. It simply can't be done.

Personally, after a lifetime of thinking that people from the midwest and the south were just stupid little jokes jumping around with their idiot accents, I now know that they are all vile evil things from hell trying to destroy the world.  That's the truth that the trump election has shown.

For the rest of my life, all things with a midwestern/southern accent will be considered as minions from hell and treated appropriately.
 
2020-10-28 3:39:53 AM  
For realsies answer:

The better media will focus on FL. And to a lesser extent, GA and AZ.

All 3 should(in theory) be able to announce a winner on election night. States such as PA aren't expected to have nearly accurate vote tallies election night (they count their mail in ballots after Nov 3rd for some reason).

But we will know a lotabout the state of the race after FL, GA, and AZ announce winners.

If Trump wins all 3, odds of him winning become 50-50-ish. Any other result end with him having starkly less likely odds of victory. And if he doesn't win FL or GA.... the election will be called then. His odds become well less than 1% if he loses both.
 
2020-10-28 3:59:39 AM  
Here's what will happen: on election night, the popular vote will favor Biden. In states under red control, the official results will favor Trump over and above both pre-election polling and exit polls. The outcome in at least one critical state will be litigated.

Some time later, when the case reaches the USSC, the court will rule that counting ballots cast for candidates other than Trump would be contrary to the original intent of the Constitution, peace be its name, and that the only outcome that is fair to the Republican party is to return Trump to the White House. (Those of you who consider this far-fetched might not have been alive for the 2000 election.)

There will be riots, and likely a few deaths, but opposition will be disorganized and ineffective. The Democratic party will concede the result, call for national unity, and pledge their willingness to reach across the aisle. (Those of you who consider this far-fetched might be living with your heads stuffed up your arses.)

Within a few weeks, the unrest will die down and everyday life will continue as American political life becomes more and more like that of the Russian Federation.

The United States will continue to hold elections for federal office, but they will always be won by the Republican candidate. It will become a dark betting game on Fark and elsewhere to predict by how much a Republican candidate will win -- and to guess how many ballot boxes full of uncounted Democratic votes will be mysteriously found in unusual places.

By 2024, the Trump administration will push a case to the USSC arguing that the 22nd amendment, as an amendment, is contrary to the original intent of the Constitution and should be struck down as unconstitutional. The court will agree and Trump will be elected for a third term.

I can tell you what's going to happen in the days, weeks, and months after the election: violence, a lot of it. Doesn't matter who wins. Pandora's Box is open. If the murderer loses, his supporters will continue unabated, even worse than they've been. If he wins, that validates them beyond anything they've ever experienced in this nation since the civil war.

Nah.

Nothing pacifies the masses like democracy.

After Nov. 3rd, everyone will lower their club and slink back to their cave, knowing there is nothing left to be done about things. Just like Bush v. Gore.

Biden gets shot by a disgruntled Trump supporter plunging the nation into civil war of which it never recovers. See curse of Tippecanoe.

Seizing their opportunity, ten nations attack and destroy America taking all of her assets as spoils of war.

On the coming Election Day, (November three),
Will the new ex-president please take a knee?
Will he cry like a child?  Whimper and fuss?
Or act like an adult (like the rest of us).

And what of his minions,
That breathe his disease?
Can we depend upon them
To all take a knee?

Kapernick taught us a peaceful protest,
Just take a knee to stand out from the rest.
Without even a word his actions said much
Of racists, hate, conservatives, and such.

Forces of darkness, their torches now lit,
A rallying cry to end  "all this shiat"
A fascist regime had been wanted so long
So the wealthy could rule, and the liberals be wrong.

So in The Land of DC they crowned a new king
Whose own claim to fame was "I don't know a thing"
To pillage the wealth, destroy oversight
And appease the torchbearers who hate in the night

Will a once great country become rubble and ruin
With an ex-president who can't see the damage he's doing?
He taught us to fear, to doubt , to mistrust
And 20,000 lies have settled like dust.

So please, when it's over, just take a knee
Not an "us" or a "them" ; rather a "WE"
WE want America to last and to thrive
WE look forward to a day to arrive
When blacks and whites and LBGT
Can look back on that day and say "WELL<AT LEAST HE
DID THE RIGHT THING WHEN HE LOST ... JUST TOOK A KNEE"

Then maybe you can rest easy in MAD. A beautiful and insane policy which has kept the peace on the edge of a knife for over 70 years.

The idea being that if you hit me, I  will hit you. Neither of us can stop the hit or its consequences so the only winning move is not to play.

Even a short range icbm launch will take 6 minutes for launch to impact.  Inside that time the nuclear triad will activate and the world will die in fire and ice.
Also you need to get a missile into range for a short range launch and the US can literally track a crab walking on the sea floor 250 miles away.

This is fun, give me another one.

Your truthiness does not assure prevention.

There are MANY leaders of countries whose dick wagging have gotten the wars started. Even people who want to be leaders aren't above doing stupid shiat.

Also you need to get a missile into range for a short range launch and the US can literally track a crab walking on the sea floor 250 miles away.

This is fun, give me another one.

Like I said it doesn't assure it can't happen, but it makes the stakes so very high that no leader would be willing to pay it. Who wants to rule over a parking lot?

RedComrade: 1funguy: RedComrade: 1funguy: thedingoatemybaby: 1funguy: thedingoatemybaby: RedComrade: Bennie Crabtree: If there was ever a perfect moment to invade the USA, it would be this election night. Nobody would be reporting on it, nobody would be rushing to the beach to stop it, and the social media footage would just disappear into the general images of the rest of the night. If a surprise foe were to appear, like Nepal or Andorra or Atlantis or Mars or whoever, it would probably be a few days before the occupied cities even realized it was an invasion and not some National Guard and/or weirdo militia who deployed to keep the peace.

Except that the heavy lift capacity for an invasion force across either ocean is a logistical impossibility.  The ability simply doesn't exist, even if complete unopposed and you had every cargo ship on the planet including the US ones. It simply can't be done.

Ha! The RedComradedescribing why invading Russia before winter is a very BAD idea. Indeed it is, comrade. A lesson learned the hard way for many foes.

Missiles don't give a rats ass about winter.

I said invading, not bombing. Bombing is the easy part.

sorry. you're correct.
but, that doesn't make me wrong...

Then maybe you can rest easy in MAD. A beautiful and insane policy which has kept the peace on the edge of a knife for over 70 years.

I would like to think if Trump tried to order some type of first strike the world ends will me type event, his security detail would give him the Caligula treatment.

A lovely thought, but unless one (or more) is doing Melania, I wouldn't rely on that outcome.
As a matter of fact, I guess if they were doing Mel, they probably would taken care of the problem already.
Maybe not. I guess that's a pretty good gig and reassignment might mess up the "1st boyfriend" job...

I don't hold out much hope for the empire, senator...

The USA has very clearly chosen to destroy itself already, so MAD is kind of a moot concept. You can't rely on MAD and then decide to wreck yourself.
