Election Night 2016
NY Times' website and it's pretty typical for a general election. The Republican crook is winning big in the redneck and flyover states while the Democratic crook has won a few wealthy east coast states. Hillary very briefly pulled ahead of Trump by two electoral votes by winning 20 in her native Illinois. Not very ironically, Trump lost in his home state of New York.
But as it stands now this minute, Trump's ahead overall 130-97 electoral votes with California's vote-rich 55 still very much in play. It could easily come down to a a battleground state or two.
My thoughts so far on this clusterfuck:
(Update 1) Donald Trump is now over halfway to the WH. How's that for nightmare fuel?Let's collude with the MSM, she said. Kneecap the guy who can win, she said. No downside, she said. https://t.co/kLrPNPc56D #ElectionNight— BasementDweller Zero (@jurassicpork59) November 9, 2016

To the Bernie or Bust followers who voted 3rd party....what did you hope 2 accomplish!!
(Update 3)@PolitJunkieM @LLaws2 @OnlyTruthReign Real hope& change & not perpetuating a corrupt status quo. I know that's confusing to Hillbots.— BasementDweller Zero (@jurassicpork59) November 9, 2016
Read this by Greg Palast. So a corrupt Secretary of State got fucked over by another corrupt Secretary of State.
This is really interesting.
Look at the electoral map just above. Hillary's losing big, right? According to that, even if she took California right then and there, she'd still be losing to Trump by 4 points.
This is what the electoral map suddenly changed to literally 60 seconds after the polls closed in California. That's how you turn a landslide into a neck and neck horse race.Yes, the NY Times literally declared California for Hillary before any of the polls had reported.
Bias much, Gray Lady?
There's all sorts of crooked shit going on in this country tonight.
Trump's going to pull this one out, I'm afraid. My constant reader CC says Hillary needs to win PA, WI & MI to have a prayer of winning. She's losing the last two states and is holding on to a slim edge in the first. This is how the electoral map looks. Trump's 54 votes from sleazing into the WH.
As I predicted, two of my biggest Twitter accounts got shadowbanned by Hillbots who apparently can't take the news their Goldwater Girl's gonna lose. At this point, I hope Trump does win just to see the looks on their faces as they sweep up the popped balloons and confetti.
Knowing Hillary's a goner, Maddow and Matthews on MSNBC are already starting the circular firing squad and blaming third party voters for this. But Stein is doing so horribly, even in her home state of MA, that even if her votes went to Clinton, it wouldn't've made a lick of difference in any state. And those inexplicably voting for the defunct Gary Johnson can only hurt Trump and help Hillary.
Trump's 32 electoral votes from getting in the WH. Looks as if Hillary won't pull off wins in Wisconsin or Michigan, so it won't matter if she wins Pennsylvania. She'll lose Alaska and their three votes although she may win in Hawaii and get their four.
But without WI or MI, it doesn't look as if she's got a prayer of winning. Although that cocksucker Husted in Ohio didn't do her any favors, either, by disabling the tamper proof security systems on the electronic voting machines.
26 more electoral votes and Trump starts measuring drapes in the WH.
Wisconsin and Michigan has 26 electoral votes combined.
Trump's got this one sewn up. Gentlemen, present arms!
Form circular squad.
