I fear a lot of conservative outage as an "unexpected" Biden win will catch people who are sure if Trump's victory because fox said so by complete surprise.

It looks like the mail-in ballots will simply have to go into the dustbin!

And then the dustbin will need to be burned, the ashes will need to be dumped into acid and the grey acidic goo will need to be dumped into a sealed concrete cask and the cask will need to be dropped into the Atlantic ocean.

Can't be too careful about fraud, you know.

OAN's even worse. They are straight up lying and saying Trump's "in the lead in key battle ground states."

I can only imagine the conspiracy theories that will be created to explain away a trump loss at this point.

It would not surprise me to discover that any voters in the houses without any signs at all are voting for Biden. The only people voting for Trump are the ones that are so deep in the cult that there's no hope. All the people with no signs are probably as sick of the whole thing as you are, and some are likely Republicans that are holding their noses and voting for Biden. Biden has a noticeable share of the Republican vote. Measuring Trump's share of the Democratic vote requires calculating the limit of a function as it approaches zero.

I watched a bit of the video. They seem to be in a different world, but it is Fox in Friends so they have an audience of 1.

I did turn it off when Geraldo said the progressive wing propelled Biden to the nomination (3 min mark). His smallest constituency in party helped to propel him. I thought they voted against me.

The Freepers are quite certain of a Trump victory. Their certainty is based on a lot of unskewing of the polls.

The one remaining loud mouth boomer in the office wanted to bet me a hundred dollars Trump was going to win.  He can't afford it, so I talked him into betting a case of beer instead.  He's so certain he is going to win, and so giddy about it.  I almost feel bad taking a case of beer off of him.

There are many false presumptions that readily fall from that fractured story. It does you no credit to sew seeds that are so readily misinterpreted. You ought to be better than that. Specifically, many ballots simply cannot be delivered because people list flawed addresses in their registration forms.

It's awkward, but many of our systems are poorly instantiated.

Yes, the USPS has been compromised, and ballots have been delayed and misrouted. There are problems. But half digested stories are just noise. Try to do better.

For the most part, they are keyboard warriors and pretend wannabe Rambo cosplayers. If there were actual shots fired I am guessing most Proud Boys and other militia idiots would piss their pants and run for cover, not run towards fire.

/there is a reason they are not in a real military fighting real wars, where people really die
//even those that may have actually been in the military were probably dishonorably discharged and never saw combat
///they are very low on the IQ chart

Went on a long walk while visiting family near Ridgefield, it really stressed me out. A lot of houses with Punisher skulls and Thin Blue Line flags in them in those exurbs, felt like I was among a collection of crypto-fascists.

So rich people should vote for the candidate promising to keep their money safe from the poors, white people should vote for the candidate wink-wink-nudge-nudge implying that he'll restore a race-based caste system with them on the top, and men should vote for the party that is allegedly going to turn the USA into a cross between Gor and Gilead?

Which is exactly the point. Lie about an Inevitable trump win, then if Biden wins go on and on about how it must have been fraud that put him there (and ignore all evidence and investigations that prove otherwise). Then, when your propaganda mill starts producing more right-wing terrorists hell-bent on "reclaiming the republic from a fraudulent Democrat Government" or some such BS, continuously harp on the Democrats as if they created this situation by just existing and will go on and on and on about how much better things would be if everyone just gave Trumpers all the power forever from now on.

You know, what right-wing media has been doing  for decades now and people refuse to catch on to the game.

Check your State's voter registration website. Even if your state doesn't mail you a written confirmation for your absentee ballot, they might still show the status of that ballot (i.e. "Received / Recorded").

Precisely. From here it looks like people are already doing what crotchgrabber thinks they need to be told. No one ever needed to be told he should think about what will give him the biggest benefit.

"Our glorious new economy will be better for everyone!"
"Even me specifically?"
"Well not you, but you could retrain or something. And in the long run this will probably be a net positive for your great-grandchildren even if it's not for your children. Probably."

Not really in Miami Beach area or areas I typically travel in.   Don't see many until I get north of Ft Lauderdale or southwest of FIU.  In general, I see far far fewer overall than four years ago.  Even in Orlando suburbs I was seeing about twice as many Biden signs as Trump.
