Patience might be key. On election night, won't all the initial returns show a Trump lead but as mail-in votes are counted over the next few days, heavily leaning toward the Biden camp, Biden will overtake the electoral college. Do we need to prevent all out chaos by protesters on election night and convince them they are simply prematurely over reacting? Or will cities burn in the wee morning hours of November 4?

by Anonymousreply 509/14/2020

Some of this difficulty could be avoided if state laws permitted mail ballots to be counted before election night (some states do permit this). If that were the case nation-wide, there would not be the potential that mail ballots would change the apparent result in election night. If counted early, of course, the result would not be disclosed until the close of the polls on Election Day. However, there is no time to change state laws.

I seem to recall that Republicans always appear to be winning early on election night due to the fact polling places close earlier in the south than in the coastal states. For that reason, things don't start to turn around and look good for the Democrats until much later in the evening.

Trump is dangerous, the good thing about having a free press, an open democratic society and one with (we hope) law an order, is that his attempt at creating an alternate world isn't the only narrative.

I was so convinced that Hillary was going to win in 2016 that I was, in all seriousness, looking forward to election night. I was so relaxed that I didn't even follow the results at first; I sat and listened to Bob Dylan. Then I went online and saw people freaking out, saying Trump was doing much better than they'd expected. I started to panic and kept waiting for Hillary to overtake him, but she didn't. I still remember being bleary-eyed on the bus the next morning, unable to believe that Trump had won. I really did expect that by the end of the day, an announcement would be made that there'd been some sort of mistake.

R31 If journalists had been more honest about Clinton's chances it wouldn't have been such a traumatic shock for everyone.

I, personally, feel that we’ll continue to feel economic shocks because of that. So, he should lose, but I don’t know what to believe.

Biden needs to add MI, WI and PA, and the election's just about over. The claims about MN are exaggerated at this time. It's closer than it looks with the national polls, but with Biden's people pouring their resources out and Trump's broke assholes pulling back and cancelling, that should help.

Harry Enten notes that the main decisions in an election are being made between now and about two weeks from now. Trump is shitting himself while Biden and the Dems are keeping focused. After this "lock-in" period the polls, especially from the end of September and the first of October, will show likely outcomes, as well as the areas where concerns will continue until after the election count.

Trump can say anything he wants. He can unleash his storm troopers to hassle voters. He can get GOP flaks and other fascists to "lose" ballots or screw up absentee and mail-ins. At some point the system, as the courts especially see the chance to restore normality, will come down hard. The military will keep quiet or quietly deflect any bullshit Trump attempts. The House will take action. I am not concerned about a drawn-out process. I'm concerned about this poisonous cabal of special interests and lunatics and fascists continuing to fuck the country over as the Democrats take control and try to address the usual shit the Republicans leave in their wake.

I do not want to see Trump for the rest of my life, unless it is in the worst and most painful settings.

I get that you're saying states that still could go either way in this election are crucial, but even if you go ahead and take solidly blue states for granted, that doesn't mean our votes don't matter. That's the foundation on which Biden's victory would be built. Would you say California, with its 55 electoral votes, doesn't matter? I'm just saying, the language we use to talk about these things is important. Never give anyone the idea that their vote won't count.

R98, the Ohio early voting is correct. Early voting in Ohio starts October 3rd.

Also, the state automatically mailed out absentee ballot requests to every Ohio voter so we have multiple options this year.

For those of you worried about ballot counting on Election night, from what I understand, don't most of the mail in ballots get counted that night as well?

Yes, there are some states that accept ballots that are POSTMARKED by Election day but that seems to be mostly blue states.

Why would that ballot counting be any different than waiting for the heavily populated areas to tabulate votes?

Every news room constantly says, "we are still waiting for the count from county X, which is the main county where city Z is located" . They always say that. And they always remind people that vote counting in cities takes longer so sparsely populated areas post first

by Anonymousreply 4609/16/2020

by Anonymousreply 4709/16/2020

The most bizarre -- yet totally possible -- scenario I read was this:

Days before the election, Trump declares he's postponing the election, and directs his supporters to not vote.

He of course has no power to do this, so the election still goes on, but this results in a hugely lopsided Biden win... like 75/25.

Trump then declares the election illegitimate. His supporters in the media support this, his voters support this, and it becomes a complete nightmare of chaos.

Trump uses this gambit to delegitimize elections, the media that won't go along with him, and refuses to leave office. If it doesn't spark all-out civil war, it results in a Trump dictatorship.

by Anonymousreply 4809/16/2020

I think Trump will love being a media star after the election, though even his supporters will tire of his inability to speak in complete sentences.

He will fear prosecution for a variety of reasons, but probably thinks his lawyers can delay things long enough, plus it won’t look good to prosecute a former President. He’ll lose the election, but escape prosecution.

by Anonymousreply 4909/16/2020

Sorry but what nightmare of chaos, r48? People are not required by law to vote. If they dont, their votes are not cast and they lose their say. Seems like a dream scenario for us! And of course a president doesn’t determine whether an election is legitimate or not.

There are several disasters looming but I don’t think this is one of them.

The GOP refused to remove an Impeached president without any repercussions.

R50 and R51 - I actually agree with both of you. Both points are correct and that truly is a scary thing. The norms that this fool has shattered have been enormous. I, along with many Americans, had no clue the MANY things that the executive branch could just "get away with" with no mass citizen uproar and no fear of judicial branch repercussions (yes, I also realize that Repugs have been stacking judges from top to bottom). The legislative branch has also been perplexing - particularly Moscow Mitch as Senate Majority Leader who has corrupted Congress to the point that in many ways (we have listed them all before ad nauseam) he is an authoritarian dictator in his own right. Yet as citizens - we seem powerless to do more than just watch it happen. These are scary times; I don't put anything past this revolting pack of criminals that make up the current GOP. The tug boat has been nudging the battleship bit by bit for so long that we no longer resemble the constitutional republic that we once were and are dangerously close to authoritarian.

I'm terrified that Trump might win again. To make myself feel better, today I looked at the polls in every state. I counted up all the electoral votes for each candidate, assuming they will win the states they're ahead in right now. (There are four too-close-to call states with only 1% separating Trump and Biden - Ohio, Texas, Georgia and Florida. To be on the safe side, I assigned all those electoral votes to Trump.)

The finally tally: Biden 287, Trump 242. Now I feel a bit more encouraged.

I suspect the real reason Trump is so afraid of mail-in voting is that the Russians can't hack it like they can voting machines. So to make sure my vote will be counted, I plan to hand carry my ballot downtown to City Hall.

I think the most important thing we can all do is shift our thinking paradigm. There will never be a single event that corrects this. We are in a battle for DECADES to come because we sat back and let them take over the judicial branch. I’ve been thinking about it a lot, and I think there are two approaches and both must be used. The first involves fixing social media, improving education, aggressively holding onto power when we have it, install our judges. The second arm of the solution is about undoing their work. So, actually uninstalling officials, impeaching judges, firing firing firing. Black ball anyone tied to him. If we can win, we also need to sanction the fuck out of Russia, akin to when Obama threw them out them window with their vodka bottles.

But the most important thing that will change history, for better or for worse, is social media. We’ve got to hold sm companies accountable for the affects of their platforms, and I see them coming around to this more and more. They’re finally connecting the dots that you can’t have limitless greed, we can’t post lies just to make money. Oh! I forgot my last point — firing squad Zuckerberg.

It won't be that big of problem if Trump clearly loses, but what is more likely to happen is Trump will be able to question the results enough that half of the country will think it was an unfair election. Say Biden wins in Arizona and Florida, but the Republican election officials and Governors, both of who are Trump toadies, refuse to certify the election results. If those states don't send their electors to the Electoral College there won't be enough for either Trump or Biden to win, throwing the election into the House of Representatives, where each state gets one vote. Trump is reelected and the nightmare continues with the country more divided than ever.

Plus just think, the last four years have been policies in hopes of Trump getting reelected, just think of the nightmare policies when he can't get reelected and doesn't care what any of the voters think.

Throw these thoughts into the dust bin with a few other ideas. It seems like only yesterday that the media was proclaiming that the Democrats would have a vicious, bloody, protracted convention. Absolutely nothing came of that.

The media needs to tone down the hysterical. I'm sure there will be some low level seats that will have to wait for a recount, and I'm sure that Trump will be a nightmare when he loses, but it's just not going to be that close at the end.

FYI, Florida has in-person early voting as well... from Saturday, October 24 through Saturday, October 31. Be warned that this is the maximum range, but it's up to individual counties and election officials to set the exact locations, hours, and policies... so if you're depending upon voting early, do NOT just take for granted that you can blindly show up at a likely polling site at 5pm on Saturday, October 31 and vote. DO NOT wait until the last minute.

Personally, I'm not encouraging Floridians to vote by mail... I'm encouraging Floridians to vote early, in person... say, mid-afternoon on Tuesday or Wednesday of early-voting week... AFTER the initial crush (when it'll be less crowded and safer), but safely before the last minute. That way, we can at least make Trump sweat bullets all day, and shit a brick at 11pm when CNN declares Trump to be the winner of Florida ON Election Day PRECISELY because he's a point or two behind Biden with 99% of precincts reporting (and the remaining 1% all being overwhelmingly-Democratic precincts where the polls closed late because there was a line of socially-distanced people a literal mile long waiting in line to vote). If Trump is behind Biden IN FLORIDA when early and in-person votes have been counted, declaring Florida for Biden will be safe... and from that point, other states with close races will start to feel like, "If Trump could lose FLORIDA, he probably lost HERE, too". Biden's victory will escalate into a landslide.

I DON'T want to see Trump resign, die, or get removed before the election, though. I think that would be BAD. With Trump gone, a lot of anti-Trump Republicans would sigh with relief, smile, and vote for Pence on Election Day. A lot of Democrats would sigh with relief and think the fight is over (without bothering to go vote for Biden). The more disgraced Trump becomes, the better... but for the sake of electoral strategy, it's important that Trump is still officially the President (and Republican candidate for President) until the last polling site closes on election day.

That's my biggest fear too!

Quite frankly, the problem with the high number of unwanted pregnancies and abortions could be fixed with better sex education in schools and better/easier access to contraceptives. The US has one of the highest numbers of child pregnancies. Yes women need to have save access to abortion clinics, but the problem doesn't have to be as bad as it is. Problem is, hardcore religious repugs undermine any efforts to fix this because they are obsessed with keeping women down and from emancipation.

If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
