Trump was put in office by the Electoral College, despite the 3million + popular votes more that Hillary won. It's time for the Electoral College, a relic of the days when slave-holding states needed to get an extra bump, to go away. The popular vote should be the only factor.

It's agonizing to wait for the answer, but then, I think about how this must be absolute torture for Trump and his money-grubbing family and friends, I can be patient and wait for the results.

A peculiar feature of all this is that the election and the ongoing rows will inevitably make the election centre stage and therefore drive the virus off the front page. On the UK 'Newsnight' programme last night there was already a Republican pointing out coronavirus has disappeared from the news, which is exactly what Trump claimed would happen. Of course, Trump claimed it would happen because it is all a plot by Democrats to stoke fear and it seems likely his supporters will believe that rather than the real reason it is off the front page for a while - perhaps quite a long while. It could be some time before the difference between 'disappearing' and 'disappearing from the news headlines' is understood.

If Biden (or anyone) doesn't get to 270 electoral college votes, there must be a Contingency Election, which sounds like too much fun. I think it means that we could end up with Biden/Pence, but I don't know. I just want Biden to win freakin' Nevada.

Covid-19 has pretty much wrecked everything: lives, our economy, way of life, and the reason it's still surging 9 months later is that we have no federal leadership, to speak of. We've got a guy sitting in an office, making money, and hurting people. Not "leading".

now a really important fact, that nobody has mentioned is about the presedential debate which only takes place between republicans and democrats no other candidates take part apparantly back in the 1980s the democrats and the republicans agreed to set up a jointly owned private company called theThe Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD)
is a nonprofit corporation established in 1987 under the joint sponsorship of the Democratic and Republican political parties in the United States. ... It has run all of the presidential debates held since 1988.

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) is a nonprofit corporation established in 1987 under the joint sponsorship of the Democratic and Republican political parties in the United States.[1][3] The CPD sponsors and produces debates for U.S. presidential and vice-presidential candidates and undertakes research and educational activities relating to the debates. It has run all of the presidential debates held since 1988. The commission's debates are sponsored by private contributions from foundations and corporations[4] as well as fees from hosting institutions.[5]

The commission's exclusion of third-party candidates from the debates has been the subject of controversy and legal challenges.

Obviously I can't speak for everybody this end, but if I might just make a pitch for what my take on what "The Reasonable Brit" might be thinking about what's going on:

We want, dearly want, Joe Biden to get over the line. He may be weak because of the prospective numbers in the House/Senate, but we see him as that Safe Pair Of Hands that we saw (despite their flaws) with Bill Clinton and Obama. We think that his pledge to rejoin the Paris Accords is crucial for the future of the planet. We are incredibly disappointed that he didn't wipe Trump out. In fact, bearing in mind that Trump got far more votes than last time, we are worried to death about the future of western democracy in the face of the rise of populism. We have a US contributor on Question Time tonight who is saying that the US is not a democracy at all, but an oligarchy driven by corporations and powerful lobby groups. I'm not quite there with that view myself but I know what she means. I liked to hear Biden's calm voice tonight. Whether he can calm the world for four years to come is a bloody moot point but he's the only hope we've got. There's no God so I can't pray, but I want to wake up tomorrow hearing that Joe has made it.

He's going to make it.

Trump was just talking about how the evil Democrats were trying to steal the election. He said he won. There are lawsuits and attempts to stop the counting everywhere, some of which were dismissed. The mad has been increasingly un-balanced, and is very bad right now, what with his level of frustration. I think Biden will win, and I think Trump will be interesting to watch, if you like that sort of entertainment. MSNBC just stopped showing his address, and I think ignoring him is probably the healthiest thing I can do.

I should say, I don't think Biden is weak just because Trump has tried to get people to believe he is. Calm logic, patience in the face of craziness, and deliberate ignoring trolls takes some fortitude. IMO.

Thanks for the clarification. Looks like Dems still have the House. They thought they get the Senate, but didn't, or at least didn't flip it completely. I wish they got the Senate, but the Presidency is pretty good. (I DID want McConnell and Graham gone.)

That is tricky, though, Sandman. Without some sort of proportional representation what usually happens is the smallest party (eg the Greens) takes votes disproportionately from the party most aligned with them, leading to the one least aligned getting most votes. This vote-splitting has been the bane of all FPTP systems wherever they are in the world, and, short of some PR system, it seems insoluble.

The cracks in the damn enablers are showing fear of prosecution and are backing away slowly. Even Murdoch has started whistling past the graveyard of the Trump family. Yes it is time to put the dick back in the dictator. I'll allow Pelosi to choose where to put it. Dic-tator tots like Donald Trump Junior are crying for the people to go to war, but with an army like Rudy's Ruff riders and Bubba's Tennesee militia it does not look like civil war afterall.

Joe Biden is going to be the president of the United States, the math is an impossibility for Donald Trump now. He can not be elected President, there is no path for him to be elected with the few remaining uncounted votes. Temper tantrums and hurt feelings don't matter anymore; his delusions, his King Lear act, the enablers are upset - it doesn't matter. They lost.

That leaves 48% of Americans having voted for a an authoritarian movementwith fascistic markers hostile to American democracy, to the rule of law and venerates a cult personality. I think the heir apparent will not be Trrmp Jr.but is Tucker Carlson in 2024. Hewill say Trump was stabbed in the back by unseen deep state actors and the election was stolen. That will be the new cry of the right wing victim.

Republicans will believe this forever because they have been poisoned by the Murdoch corporation, by OAN, by Sinclair, the sludge and aewerage on Facebook, so this will still be a long term fight.
We have an embolden white nationalistmoveent, we see a militia movement supported by the Republican party like black shirts. AR 15s are a political statement. All this needs to be sealed up and buried like the Chernobyl reactor.

THE GOOD NEWS IS THIS 4 million people oppose those dark efforts of the right. From the Lexington Concord forward we the people decided to govern ourselves and not be dictated to. We pick the leaders.

Trump has been fired due to his malfeasence, recklessness, immaturity and insanity.

I am hearing theories Trump will resign before the inauguration in January specifically so that Pence can give him a Presidential pardon. I can't say I would be surprised.

I presume that if he decided to do that, there is no way of preventing it?

There are too many 'Red' states for it to fly, but I would have liked to see a proposal for an amendment to the Constitution to put some constraints on what a President can and cannot do, including such things as blocking nepotism and the use of properties owned by the President and family for government purposes, and government properties for party purposes. I am sure other can think of things to add to the list.

This all got messed up from the top levels directing the bottom, and it spread. In other words, they screwed education so kids no longer learn about civics. They watch TV, where people who act like idiots are rewarded by being noticed. Mostly, because they're uneducated, they believe whatever their hero tells them.
Man, question everything - not just "authority", but what the people you like say. We have a whole generation (or maybe two) of stupid people. Educate their kids, at least.
