I have no idea, but I have beer. Plus the TV is off. I'm good for now.

I remember 2004 as if it were yesterday.TM

OK, This is the last thread I'm posting this in: Poll Closings

Jack is Back!

I have a master bar, TM and tonight is a Blllecart-Salmon night. Look it up. Forget the scotch, its for fence sitters. And that is how you get a bum hip.

JM Hanes

Me, too, clarice.

RattlerGator

I think y'all better go check those Citrus County numbers. If I'm reading it correctly, the final tally is in and he won the damn county by not 20, not 25, not 30, not even 35%

He won the damn county by 40 freaking percent.

Monster vote !!!

2004 was a great election. When a band playing at a club found out the results he said "does this mean we don't have to pretend to like Kerry any more?" I think the guy was a bit edgier than James Taylor.

Jack is Back!

I can only watch FBN and Lou Dobbs. At least he keeps you positive.

FNC has Rove. No one can make you commit hari-kari like that guy.

Deplorable Momto2

40% - WOW - thanks RG!!


I Believe!!!

Mrs H said there are some frowny faces on ABC talking about Florida.

I like frowny faces on ABC. :)

I told you jib that is what we selected for red's 21st birthday. I wanted something memorable. I did get champagne, but not vintage, at costco this afternoon in case celebrating is an option.

Otherwise there is thanksgiving and I know what I will not be thankful for this year.

Off to watch a recorded midsomer.

Predictit.org just had a sizable bump up for both Trump and Rs holding the Senate, increasing by $.10 and $.30 respectively.

Geebuz, Christmas Auto ads already. Another reason to hate he media.

Keep Christ in Christmas.

Well Trump people were tweeting for votes in the Oanhandle earlier. Way below what they need.

Sue

Panhandle

Mad Jack

Watching Bruins v Canadians. Was drinking beer. Switched to wine. May move to bourbon depending on whether I run out of wine or the Bruins do their usual swoon in Mtl. I'd bet the over on bourbon. Counting on folks with a stronger constitution than mine to watch the taking heads and provide updates. Gave the talking heads(not the band, love them) up for Lent 12 years ago. Don't miss it for a second. Although I will watch the replays if heads start to explode if the Donald actually pulls this off. Enjoy.

daddy

Down 2.3 percent with 73% of the Florida vote in but the military Panhandle to count.

E'ff G. W, Bush.

macthenaif

My impression is that FL Panhandle R voters are mostly non-rich retirees. Those folks have different priorities than working folks or well-off retirees. Trump may not have pushed their buttons.

Captain Hate

Yes, I'm going to watch The Flash and let you guys deal with the angst.

Somebody DVR it if Cher kills herself.

73% before they wouldn't have imput the ballots in most of the counties,

Although Trump appears to have won Duval County, the numbers are not good for us.

Hmmmmm. Underperformed Romney; I smell a rat. Clinton outperformed Barack Obama 2012 in Jacksonville? Hard to believe.

".. Trump people were tweeting for votes in the Panhandle earlier. Way below what they need. ...

That was Don Jr ..What I heard was that they wanted some insurance in case the Indies didn't break for Trump. But it looks like they are in other states

jimmyk

FL looking uncomfortably close, but I can't believe they've counted 78% of the votes already. In any case Trump is closing the gap as they start counting the panhandle.

Jack is Back!

Who are these fucking people who think Hillary is the answer? Especially in Florida. I know. The shit asses from the North East who moved here and brought their mafia democrat politics with them. I hope their SS dries up and they have to eat off the streets and from the dumpsters.

Fuck them.

And I know who they are especially the Portoguese and Italian clubs that dominate Florida now.

deus volt buccaneer morgan

there's also the influx from puerto rico's listing deck, thanks alot eddie munster for the bailout,

anonamom; formerly adorable, now deplorable.

Obama won by only 0.9% in FL, and it took two days to call it, per the Fox Business people.

jimmyk

Are there enough votes in the panhandle for Trump to overtake? He's about 50,000 behind now.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Brevity may be the soul of wit but it's making the dickens of trying to figure out what half of Sue's comments mean.

anonamom; formerly adorable, now deplorable.

The pundits are doing a great job of calling out the GOPe who failed to help Trump.
Heads on pikes!

John Kasich has announced an address in two days on the future of the Republican party.
Like who besides his momma cares what he has to say?

jimmyk

I think the answer is yes, he's now within a few thousand, at least by Drudge's link.

Fresh Air, deplorably

Just re-took the lead.

derwill, yet another adorable, irredeemable deplorable

OMG, it's close in FL. NBC now has Trump in the lead but only by a 1000 votes. Only panhandle precincts left to come in though.

East Bay Jay

Welcome to 2000 and Florida recount hell. Can't believe we're going to do that again but it sure looks like it.

Fresh Air, deplorably

Miami-Dade has fully reported?

Elliott

It seems to me that Trump is outperforming the polling in Florida that showed him losing early voters considerably. It's true that some places, like Duval County, have already reported election day results so this will not be a great comparison, however, I will offer it. One poll showed a tie with Clinton up 10-points with those voting before election day (over 60% of the electorate) and Trump up 15-points with those voting today. With about 60% of precincts reporting per the NYT, the two are in a dead heat. If the polling about election day voting is close to correct, I don't see how Clinton can hang on.

But Clinton is ahead in OH

RattlerGator

I see what they did in Florida if you look at the numbers in Orange and Osceola county.

Hellafied cheating. No doubt about it.

Fresh Air, deplorably

I'm reading the Panhandle was on the order of 80% R today. Hard to believe, but that's a lot of Trump voters if true.

jimmyk

Ohio only has 15% reporting, meaningless. NYT says Trump is 'likely' to win FL.

Yeah Birch lost so bad he died. :)

Ohio = looks like all the cities dropped their EV results all at once.

Since my husband's accident, we've only turned the TV on twice, for Sooner football. Turned it off after five minutes. The brightness, colors, flashing hurts his eyes. I think I'd be screaming if I happened to watch anything but Fox Business tonight (which I'm not, though wish I could.) Anyway, this is a long way to tell you, I've depended on all of you today (as well as this past month) for this election and tonight, it's outcome.

I'm going to watch Acorn TV on my computer with earphones, (husband can't stand music, loud noises, etc) Canadian show, 19-2. I've fallen in love with it. Oh, the Acorn thingy is a 30-day free trial--think I'm gonna sign up at end.

I miss Miss Marple's take on things today. Also, I love the rest of you witty, intelligent people. Hold on, be strong, we will persevere. MAGA!

As far as veterans, I believe they saw such horrific things, they buried the memories.

The veterans' patriotism and sacrifice, plus their families, and I'm talking about all wars up to present, is why I loath and despise scum-sucking people like the State Department representatives they trot out, plus mouthpieces like Josh Earnest or that little Mook who works for Clinton, and the ignorant morons in the media -- their empty-headed twaddle and comments come from such thin, ignorant, uneducated, arrogance that they're not fit to work in a VA hospital, wiping our veterans' noble asses.

8 mm votes in, with 9% to go. up 100K approx.

Puerto Ricans, in many ways, are indistinguishable from the African American vote. They, too, have bought into the racial teams strategy of the Democrats. Well, they (I do believe by design) have swamped Orange and Osceola County. I'm perhaps too jaded but I think Democrats by design saw an economic and political opportunity and in some ways planned this crazy mass move to Central Florida.

These increases? At these percentages? For Hillary Freaking Clinton? No freaking way.

Osceola County

2016
Trump: 46,439 (35.3%)
Clinton: 80,997 (61.6%)

2012
Romney: 40,581 (37.4%)
Obama: 67,201 (61.9)

Orange County

2016
Trump: 193,534 (35.8%)
Clinton: 326,480 (60.4%)

2012
Romney: 189,057 (40.4%)
Obama: 274,227 (58.7%)

You want me to believe 50,000 extra votes for Hillary in Orlando-Orange County?

No way in hell.

I never thought I'd love the NYT so much.

Barbara

Neither did I, Porchlight!!!

RattlerGator

I think so, anonamom. Orlando deserves serious scrutiny. That casual Obama remark about illegals? Serious scrutiny is warranted in Orlando.

There's just no way that young black males (or young Puerto Rican males) came out in those numbers for Hillary -- and you can't get there without them.

No way, no way, no way.

Trump 116,000 votes up in FL with only 9% to go. Hard to make that up.

RattlerGator

Still, the numbers in Florida keep increasing in the correct direction. Now we have to sweat out if the clowns in South Florida's county election offices have another surprise for us.

Sue

This guy on tv said Broward County is still being counted. Is that true?
