Wasn't Trump near 15% at this point 4 years ago?

No it was way closer in 2016. This was peak "but her emails" week.

It's still disturbing that there's an 11% chance of a win.  That's 15% above what it should be.

No dicks should be sucked until Biden is sworn in.

If you are feeling particularly desperate, once the electoral college votes in December, you could be allowed a handjob.

Don't matter.

Put on a farking mask and vote early in person.  Help those you know who can't get to the polls for whatever reason to vote in person.

Dump needs to go down by 10,000,000 in the popular vote, and -200 in the EC.

This needs to be an utterly eviscerating moment for the GOP.  An event larger than just a referendum on their policies, or lack thereof.

It needs to signal the beginning of the end of the GOP.

Just... vote.

Also, look at those farking bounces, and compare with this year's steady pace. Granted, the proof will be in the presidential pudding, and there's still plenty of farkery possible, but trying to compare polling between the two years and draw conclusions is a little pointless.

But he was only at 30+ because Nate Silver skewed the polls to get clicks. Everyone knew it was impossible for Hillary to lose.

If Texas goes Blue, should we check to make sure LA isn't under water (though that would help with the fires)?

Remember, Trump has a meaningful chance of winning the election, per our forecast - a little worse than the chances of rolling a 1 on a six-sided die and a little better than the chances that it's raining in downtown Los Angeles.

Winning isn't enough. Biden has to win BIG and the GOP needs to be so thoroughly rejected they can't ever claim to be a "silent majority"

I'll be gladly waiting until the actual election is done and counted to start. This is good news (assuming it still goes that way at the closing bell), but we're still far enough out that I'm cautious as fark.

89 - 11?

The answer is 78, Subby

That's 11 points higher than I am comfortable with.

I have to say I'm having some sort of PTSD type thing. This sense of impending doom, like 2016 is going to repeat itself. I'm not going to be comfortable until Trump concedes.

Yep. What kind of dirt does Trump have on Comey? 'Cause, he was not being altruistic with that BS.

Hey, how about this?

You suck my dick, and I'll give you a handy.

You may ask, "Hey, how is that fair?"

Good news: I'll buy you the booze of your choice so you can get drunk first!

Which is why they're so desperate to give this Hunter Biden laptop thing some traction.

But this time, the MSM media isn't playing along.

When, not if, (please indulge me) Biden wins, I will log on to here, and Twitter, celebrate with followers, and likeminded compatriots for a day or three. Then, I'm checking out of all social media, websites, news, etc. I am going to enjoy a movie, a tv show, a book and not feel the urge to doomscroll, or check on polling. I am going to return to some sense of normalcy, whatever that is anymore.

Three Supreme Court justices were lawyers for Bush v Gore. Keep that in mind, folks.

It has to be the biggest slam dunk in history.
