We have seen that crap before in 2016. Damn, they even paid off for Hillery before the election. I am betting for Warnock but not with money, with my vote.
 
2022-12-04 9:49:53 PM  
Instead of betting with my money, I sent it to Warnock.

I'll wait for the election results instead of relying on a bunch of gambling addicts to calm my nerves.

The betting shops might be looking to get at the slightly longer money.

Christ, I hope Warnock wins.

Some talking head guaranteed a Warnock win last week and all I could think was 'don't give them a reason to stay home.'

I am contractually obligated to post this any time the Stossel is mentioned. It's an instructional video that shows how to properly deal with him.

Warnock beat a better candidate who was also an incumbent in a 2020 runoff.  It's a safe bet if you're a gambler.

I am staying home on Election Day because it would be a felony for me to vote in Georgia since I don't live there but I really encourage Georgians to go out and vote for Sen. Warnock.

Me I'd bet on a candidate to win and then they would claim no your candidate didn't beat the spread and besides it looks like you bet on the exacta  and forget to fill out the two other races not only do you lose your bet you owe us more money

FTA: Strong early voting is typically good news for Democrats, who have encouraged their supporters to turn out well ahead of election day through initiatives such as "souls to the polls," encouraging people to vote after attending church on Sundays.

It's like a salute to the spirit of MLK, Jr. I love it.

My relative that voted last week, the one that got stuck next to a Trump supporter convinced that the election had been stolen from Trump, said he had never seen so many voters that were so extremely elderly that they needed their elderly adult child to physically assist them with voting. He said it didn't rise to a suspicion, but he did wonder if some of the 60-somethings were using 80-something Momma to cast a second vote. The only thing that will make Warnock safe is for every possible registered voter in Georgia to go out and vote for Warnock.
 
2022-12-05 8:24:45 AM  
I really do hope the prognosticators are correct. One for the best interests of the U.S.A. Also for the schadenfreude from watching Trump's inverse Midas touch tank another GOP election. I am also enjoying having people like Herschel Walker, Nick Fuentes, (Kan)Ye, MyPillow guy, and other totally obvious morons with sociopathic and racist tendencies being major players in the GOP; because I can throw those in the faces of right wingers at work when they try to get political with me. No member of the Squad, Hillary, or Joe Biden's age can compete with that clown car of morons and they know it deep down; it stings because it contradicts their perceived superiority complex.

Meh.  I vote in Georgia and I see this at every election.  There is always some guy with his grandma who can't even read the ballot.
 
2022-12-05 8:31:33 AM  
I'm betting on 3+ hr wait times to vote and the stupidity of the people of Georgia.
 
2022-12-05 8:34:43 AM  
The time to put money on Warnock was back in late October. After it because apparent that the polls were tweaked by R's, Warnock's price has barely wavered. Am hoping for a last minute MAGA push when they get excited about election day voting to drive down the price for a few hours but I doubt they are that dumb. With the expected rain and the early turnout, things are looking very good for Warnock. That being said, if you are eligible to vote for him make sure you do your part!
 
2022-12-05 8:38:54 AM  
Since Herschel looks to be a loser, both in real life and in the election too, the Republicans should unite behind a proven winner and write in Marjorie Taylor Greene to really stick it to the Libs.

This.

The fact this was a runoff was stupid, but remaining a horse race is just freaking asinine. GOPers don't give a fark if they burn it down.
 
2022-12-05 9:25:30 AM  
I know I shouldn't be surprised, but I can't believe how much the GOP is putting behind Walker in this thing.

They keep touting that he is a fine upstanding person, and the strongest candidate the party has ever run - and they say this as loud as possible right up against the litany of evidence that he is a lying, brain damaged, wife beating scumbag.

I get that the Republicans don't care, and they would vote for him anyway.  But watching the effort the GOP is putting behind this guy is astonishing.

I urge all eligible Georgians to vote for Warnock if they have not already done so.

Who are the betting degenerates that bet on elections?  That's got to be up there with having a beer first thing in the morning when you're an alcoholic.  You bet on sports, casino stuff, but laying money on just random stuff has to be a sign of a problem.
 
2022-12-05 9:56:20 AM  
This shouldn't even be a close race. I would say I hate what this country has become, but the truth is, it's always been like this. I was just naive an had rose colored glasses on.

John Stossel is like the Herschel Walker equivalent of Geraldo Rivera. Let that sink in a bit.

Makes me wonder if these guys are just using "percentages" to convince Democrat voters that Warnock is going to be a slam dunk and and they will stay home. I think this happened back in 2014 when the Dems were supposed to take over the House and Senate. I could be wrong but that was a long time ago. So some of you Farkers can resdaerch this on the Dirty tricks of the Right.

I used to think Stossel was alright until we went full Right Wing Zombie.

I hope they don't take six weeks to count the votes like they do in some places.

"That's one vote for this guy. One!"

"Annnnnd..."

"A vote for that guy, That's two for him. Two!"
