If Biden takes FL by a decisive margin the expected election night drama could fizzle out early. I think that would be awesome. I suppose it'll depend on the % of votes cast by mail-in ballots.


That would be great to have a early night and hopefully we can actually celebrate the defeat of Trump.

104 days to go. Then 78 more days with lame duck Trump in office. During those 78 days somebody needs to keep an eye on the silverware.

Who cares about the silverware? Let him have it. Lame duck sessions of congress rarely do signifiant things.

What's he going to do? Start a nuclear war because he's mad he lost? The 25th amendment would be invoked.

If I am ever president my last day in office will take place one day before the inauguration, just so all my opponents stuff about how they are the 56th or what ever number becomes worthless as my VP will be that number

I would vote for you. Supposedly that occurred with David Rice Atchison in 1849 however the idea of him being President for day has been dismissed by nearly all historians, scholars, and biographers

Fox also came out with three polls today too:

In Michigan, Biden leads 49% to 40%;

In Minnesota, Biden leads 51% to 38%;

and in Pennsylvania, Biden leads 50% to 38%.

Undoubtedly so. Even though Trump is now saying this is a "serious problem" the damage is done and I doubt he'll keep that same temperament for this long. Not to mention, he still refuses to take responsibility and continues to pedal misinformation to downright falsehoods.

Trump does realize that it isn’t the 1960s anymore right?

Hmmmmm? Possible?

Trump tends to carry a grudge. Remember his dad was sued over the fair housing act. Add it Obama had a hand so Trump has to reverse it.

Imagine losing Florida if you're Trump. That's gotta be embarrassing. Maybe he should hide in the Mar-a-Lago bunker if that happens.
