I don't know what's gonna happen.
Emotionally I'm with Bill D. and Jeri.

Walked to my polling place in the dark and they had the place all prepared for Covid-19 spacing and relatively cheery. Folks were well behaved and happy to be there. There were a variety of circular "I voted" stickers to put on your coat (it was 20 degrees F and clear) including a colorful depiction of an Eskimo woman banging a drum.

Later while dog walking a car drove up to the park with a big magnetic sign with the name of a local woman running in my district. As the driver got out I asked him if he was on her campaign. "I'm her husband!" "Well, I voted for her!" Frankly, even in this environment, I suspect Anchorage, Alaska will come out straight Conservative on every ballot choice. Opposite my votes, but we'll see.

My dog walking partner has heard me describe how four years ago I sat in a Chinese restaurant under the television set and watched the world turn bad. So everytime I talk about getting Chinese food tonight I've been getting a round of "Don't you WANT us to win?". Another acquaintance spread it around that they wouldn't vote for anyone. So I left them a message: "I've never convinced anyone of anything political, but if at least you let me know you vote today, I'll get that on my resume for the rest of my life!"

Staying away from the news until tonight, then I'm going to see what's going on in FL (whose polls should be closing right about now) and if I can get some sleep I will and will check in tomorrow morning.

Real Democracy is not for sissies.

Bill, most of the folks you named are ok. I like Rachel, I like Joy Reid. The other MSNBC hosts irritate me in some way. (Which they can't do anything about.) I just turned from MSNBC to CNN, because of the idiotic "we're so excited" music, which on year, was so loud, you couldn't hear the person talked. Every election, for at least 8 years. I wish they'd just cut the music out and let people talk. Of course, that may just be my own personal bugaboo.

Biden's ahead in NH. (Does it matter that it's <1% of the vote? I was afraid we'd go for whatshisname.

So, do I stay up until the results are mostly in? I can go for 3 days. (Well, I COULD. I'm too much of a wimp now.)

As far as the Senate, the Republicans will lose Colorado and the Democrats will lose Alabama.

After that, few seats are really in play despite the media hype.

No, seats in Texas, Montana, Iowa, South Carolina, Kentucky and Georgia were never in danger.

Arizona and Maine will probably be flipped to Democrat.

North Carolina is likely to stay Republican but it will be a close call.

At best the Dems can get to 50/50. 51/49 Republican majority is my official guess.

It was just a hurried post... **Charley** Cook.

Lawrence O'Donnell is an extremely knowledgeable expert on how the Senate works, and a virulent critic of Trump... and he follows Maddow.
I can find personal idiosyncrasies in any of the hosts/commentators I watch, but that's why I follow a wide assortment.
Maddow explains the same point 9 different ways until I yell at the screen.."Yes, Rachael, I've got it!" but WOW, how she and her excellent staff find stuff that no one else does!
O'Donnell generalizes and stretches his metaphors until I'm glad he isn't a Republican.
   Joy Reid, not surprisingly, overdoes Black issues and guests... but IS accurate and quick to see thru a bad argument.
   Chris Hayes talks a mile a minute and asks compound-complex questions that often include what answer he expects.

On CNN, Wolf Blitzer plods thru news like he never had an original thought. But he does know a lot...

   Anderson Cooper, like several CNN anchors, pretends to be fair & neutral by having some **conservative** pundit on..like Rick Santorum, who has so many flaws that I suspect that's why he's there... to be a bad example.
   Chris Cuomo is pretty good, but has little sense of humor...

Fareed Zakaria is excellent, but is not on daily.

MSNBC has many 'hosts' they are constantly switching around and 'testing' on late night and weekends, with some pretty good ones, like Jason Johnson....

,,,and I STILL miss Aaron Brown who disappeared years ago. I think he was considered to be boring, but he was good!

I extract what I can from all these people, and even occasionally switch to Fox when there's an important story, just to see how they're spinning it!

News junkie? Me? shucks, I remember H. V. Kaltenborn, Eric Sevareid and Edward R. Murrow!

I might click on your link, but is there a reason you didn't name "this guy"? O'Donnell is hard for me to take.

I said it a while ago (to I-don't-know-whom), I think the election results will be a number of degrees greater than a landslide. I think it will be big enough tonight for as-yet-uncounted write ins to not make a difference. I think it will be big enough so a whiney "they stole the election" Trump can't possibly be taken seriously.

Or maybe I'm just hoping. I think his rallies/his shows involve followers who are loud and fanatical, but not large in number. I hope.

I have too much tying me to this country to move to Canada, but they won't let me in, anyway. Don't think I haven't thought about it.

Last night on Lawrence O'Donnell, this guy predicted a Democratic win in both houses of Congress and the presidency. He thinks there will be about a 10 member gain on the House and at least a majority in the Senate. He says it is possible there will be a very large electoral college win for Biden. O'Donnell says Cook is the premiere election analyst in the country.

If the split-electoral-college vote system used by Maine and Nebraska had been in use for all States in the last few elections, and the popular vote had been exactly the same, it would only have changed the result one time - Romney would have won in 2012. And Bush and Trump would both have still been elected President having had fewer popular votes.

So it wouldn't necessarily have solved much. (Of course the change might have altered the voting pattern, since "swing states" wouldn't be the only significant ones any longer.).

The senate is sworn in on Jan 3, so the damage Trump can do (with partners in crime) is until then. His executive orders and such can continue up to when Biden is sworn in.

I expect a lot of flouncing around in anger, a total refusal to even pretend to be productive, and possibly Trump "pardoning" himself and leaving the White House to Pence. I predict that Trump will never concede, but I sure as hell hope that Twitter closes his account and doesn't let him have a new one.

I took my car in for work earlier, and have a loaner. I still need to go vote, but I needed coffee to do that. The moved the polling place. I'm guessing they needed to space things out more.

I anticipate (I hope for) a Biden win, and a whiney little baby reaction from Trump. Otherwise, it's just going to be interesting.

I remember that Nixon had staunch defenders right up until he resigned, and the truth came out. Good people admitted yeah, he really HAD been a crook. And then, there were some (Roger Stone?) who liked that he'd been a crook.

Even if Trump wins, if the House remains the same, and the Senate flips, he'll be fairly impotent. But he needs to go play golf for the rest of his life, however long that may be.

Voter obsruction makes for longer lines especially in mixed or black areas.

Wait a month for certified results. Tommorow Trump declares victory and then starts his rigged election show with an army of lawyers.

If it goes to the supream court for a third time to decide the election he promised that his newest judge will elect him.

If he wins:

the campaign to criminalize the democratic party and make the country a one party nation will begin.

He will introduce an enabling act that will cement a legal dictatorship just like you know who.

States are gradually displacing the Electoral College by declaring how their representatives may vote (winner take all or proportional - more are going to proportional)

Unfortunately, doing this gradually causes problems as well. Suppose you win a state with 12 seats by a fair but not huge margin, and I only just win a state with 10. On the winner takes all, you get power with a 2 seat advantage. If they both are proportional, you get say 7 of yours, and I get 5. As I only just won mine, we get 5 each, and again you win with a 2 seat advantage. But if yours is proportional and mine is 'winner takes all', I get 5 of yours and 10 of mine, and end up with an 11 vote lead to take into the college.

Queueing to vote for hours in your country is time-honoured, especially in areas where there are lots of poor voters or black voters, the people who would most likely overwhelmingly vote democrat. That seems like a pretty deliberate ploy. "Covid" has nothing to do with it.

SARS-Cov-2 has a great deal to do with the delays now, and the GOP representatives who have reduced the number of poling places and who are trying to cheat to win have made it a lot worse. What is needed is a new version of the Voting Rights Act that was cancelled in the Bush administration, allowing all of the nonsense that is happening now. A new act would again allow federal oversight and stop the state party folks meddling.

Statistics about how many people can vote in X time period need to specify whether that is per machine or in one voting site. When we vote in person, there are about 12 booths in the room, with 2-3 tabulating machines to feed then into.

Once again I emphasize that the biggest problem with our elections... besides the outmoded electoral college... is that individual states can set times, days, registration rules, I.D. rules, etc..etc. that make fairness a matter of who runs that state's system.

   Our country grew gradually over a couple of centuries when special circumstances dictated how things were done. Now, communication and travel make it possible to put every state on a similar, if not identical, system of registration and voting.
*IF* the electoral college were gone, every citizen would have an equal say in who was president! Having 6-8 states determine the winner every 4 years is absurd!! I am sick of fretting about Florida and Ohio every time.

Since the days of Diebold national elections and obstruction vote manipulation has not exceeded 10%. With all the post office games its not likely to be worse than 10% regionally. Putin's favorite insight is that the winner of an election is only up to those who count the votes. In America the manipulation of the vote count is not as bad as you think.
