There's too many races that are too close to call for my comfort.  I feel like I'm on an emotional roller coaster every day now. I should probably stop reading things. I still haven't decided if I am going to watch election night results.

I will laugh my ass off if Mississippi flips blue. I'm not counting on it. But if it happens I'll be howling with laughter. When Republicans have lost Mississippi, you know they've really farked up somewhere.

You will. We all will. We shouldn't, just like we shouldn't be here now, but we will.

hotrod2001: ColonelCathcart: Unobtanium: The article doesn't say anything about the race being too close to call. It's about perceived black voter turnout. The lastest poll I could find had the GOP candidate up by 8 points, on a poll with a 3.5 MoE.

Do I have to math for you?

If Biden/Espy carry even just a few white people, and all the black people show up vote that means Espy can win:

38% Black (all of them)
12% White
1 extra voter

True.  Look what they did in Alabama and South Carolina when you can mobilize that demographic.


It's really amazing how Mississippi manages to keep 38% of their population so disenfranchised that if they would all vote and about 25% of the white people that aren't racists joined them, Mississippi would be a Blue State.

I'm only going to look at election coverage for two minutes before I go to bed. Because unless it's a landslide, it'll be days if not weeks until it's resolved who the winner is.

Tfa essentially claims that if they get the same Black voter electoral percentage as they did in 2012, 36%, there is a decent chance of Espy snagging the senate seat. And the article goes into how much energy is in the community to make that happen.

VOTE!

Just remember the blue tsunami of the kid terms turned in to the blue quick sand. It took months to sort through some of the candidates and declare a winner.

The game is rigged.

One way they have dominated state government is that statewide offices must win the overall vote as well as win in a majority of state house districts. Guess what demographic group has long been a majority in most state house districts? There is currently a court case that is likely to rule it unconstitutional but the court let them keep it this election and they put remove by it on the ballot.

Unskew the polls!

What? I'm not at all doing anything other than pointing out how close 38% is to 50.0000001% demographically speaking.


It's an old fark meme, but I respect your statisticals.

The media needs to stop pretending like they are the shot callers and using the phrase "too close to call" as if they are the deciding factor and then the audience just accepts whatever the fark they say on election night based on scant results. We won't truly know what the fark went down until December and by then the unfortunate fate may have already been sealed by impatience and foolishness.
