Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

No, 6.5% or greater would be for the popular vote.so, say 53.5%/46.5% or greater for Biden.

On electoral college, I’ll say 273-274 for Biden.

270 wins it, as you know.

But there are many paths through many states to get there.
273

bearish, if this holds, then your can confer with your family and we can look forward to a dinner sometime when it is safe in 2021.

Remember - the deal was if I won the bet on Biden winning, my treat! It was a new kind of bet and a win-win for everyone. : )

DON'T STOP THE COUNT

Every vote is sacred
Every vote is fine
God needs everybody's
Mine!
And mine!
And mine!

Let the Pagan spill theirs
O'er mountain, hill, and plain

God shall strike them down for
Each count's spilt in vain

Every count is sacred
Every
 count is good
Every count s needed
In your neighborhood

Every count is sacred
Every count is great
If a count is wasted,
God gets quite iraaaaaate!

 
Let the heathen spill theirs
On the dusty ground
God shall make them pay for
Each count that can't be found

the country over there seems split, why not simply make two new countries, one red and one blue, just count the counties and put up Trump walls, would it look something like this?

Joking about our little Forum bets aside, this is not funny:

Two men outside Philly vote count in Hummer with QAnon stickers face weapons charges, police say - Philadelphia Inquirer Nov 6

An anonymous tipper called police last night to warn them about a group of three people in a Hummer - armed with an assault rifle.

Turn out to be from Virginia.

Hope there is not more of that on the way.

I want to propose that you aren’t allowed to stand for public office if you are a lawyer or have any lawyers on your Christmas card list.

Two most important affairs in Ukraine during the last days: Covid and the US elections (Polish and Ukrainian news portals are tracking every change in vote numbers in Pennsylvania).

Ворог мого ворога мій друг ;-)

Hopefully, it will sink in peacefully.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

And I'm now carrying a .38. (Just kidding!)

Welcome back!

Next forum bet:

Who will bet that the National Guard will/will not have role to play in the lead up to the inauguration?

Dark humor I know, but not only do we have Trump to contend with until January 20, but Covid is up 70% yes, seventy percent in my region. Woo hoo!

Actually best to keep both friends and enemies far away at the moment! : D

Enjoy your evenings, Forum. I am going to start making tanks out of quilt fabric.

That's why I brought it up - so this thread will be well rounded!

I also was having a look at this: Countries with no extradition to the US. It would be a stretch of the imagination to think that the Caligulean dynasty might actually have to leave the country, but you never know.  Everything feels like a Tom Clancy novel right now.

Well the nice table was not preserved but anyway here is the list:
