This Is Where Things Stand In The 2020 Presidential Race

Update (1020ET): With Georgia election officials proclaiming that they expect to have a final count available by noon, President Trump has just tweeted that votes that came in after election day will not be counted, eliciting another slap on the wrist from Twitter.

Trump’s tweet remained up for 15 minutes or so before Twitter slapped a label on it.

Meanwhile, President Trump’s campaign is holding press briefings in Philly and Las Vegas this morning to lay out the legal strategy to try and stop any late mail-in (ie majority Democratic) votes from being counted.

* * *

As Joe Biden creeps closer to the 270 mark, President Trump and his legal team have filed a flurry of lawsuits, according to the AP.

They’re hoping to improve the president’s chances, or at the very least cast doubt on the election results, requesting a recount in Wisconsin and filing lawsuits in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia. Statewide recounts in Wisconsin have historically changed the vote tally by only a few hundred votes, however, according to the AP. Wisconsin is among the states that have been called for Biden. He currently leads by 20,000 ballots out of nearly 3.3 million counted.

Still, Trump Campaign manager Bill Stepien said the president would cite “irregularities” in several counties while requesting a recount in Wisconsin. Stepien and the campaign’s legal team explained that they would file suit in Michigan and Pennsylvania to halt ballot counting on grounds that their observers weren’t given proper access to observe.

President Trump tweeted “STOP THE COUNT!” Thursday morning, a tweet that’s practically destined to be censord.

Still, other legal actions are being launched in Georgia.

As we explained yesterday, Trump is pushing to take the battle all the way to the Supreme Court, where he believes the conservative majority would give him an edge.

Anyway, here’s a rundown of where we currently stand via Newsquawk:

Where do we currently stand?

There are currently some discrepancies between various news organizations depending on whether or not they include Arizona’s 11 Electoral College votes.

Source: WaPo

If you were to include it, as per Politico, this would put Biden on 264 vs. Trump on 214 (270 EC votes are required for victory): this follows on from swing states such as Michigan and Wisconsin being called in Biden’s favor.

The path ahead:

Several key states remain to be called including Georgia (16 EC votes), Pennsylvania (20 EC votes), North Carolina (15 EC votes) and Nevada (6 EC votes).

Given the above arithmetic, if Nevada (6 EC votes) was to be called in Biden’s favor, this would be enough to secure the presidency for the former Veep; as it stands, NYT tallies Biden at 49.3% and Trump at 48.7% with 86%.

For Trump to win, he would need to pick up all of the remaining swing seats: Georgia (16 EC votes), PAY (20 EC votes), NC (15 EC votes).

Expected timings (via NYT):

Nevada (6 EC): update expected Thursday at noon. Currently Biden 49.3% vs Trump at 48.7%; 86% votes counted.

Arizona (11 EC votes): Update expected after 2100ET Thursday. Currently Biden 50.5% vs. Trump 48.1%.

Georgia (16 EC votes): Counting still ongoing, no guidance on the next update. Currently, Biden 49.1% vs Trump 49.6%; 95% of votes counted.

North Carolina (15 EC votes): Counting still ongoing, no guidance on the next update. Currently – Biden 48.7%, Trump 50.1%; 95% votes counted.

Pennsylvania (20 EC votes): No guidance on the next update, the majority is expected to be counted by Friday. Currently Biden 48.1% vs. Trump 50.7%; 89% of votes counted.

* * *

Remember, Several states allow mailed-in votes to be accepted after Election Day as long as they were postmarked by Tuesday. That includes Pennsylvania, where ballots postmarked by Nov. 3 can be accepted if they arrive up to three days later.

      The National Guard in Republican Outagamie and Calumet Counties has been filling out 18,500 misprinted duplicate ballots as duplicate ballots that were for some reason all misprinted and mailed out, but cannot be fed into the machines. Turnout in Milwaukee County was the highest in history since absentee ballot requests were mailed to every resident. Turn out was approximately 86%. About 69% of the ballots cast were for Biden from the last update. Milwaukee County also includes higher income suburbs more likely to vote Republican. When Obama ran for office, turnout was voter turnout was 67% in Milwaukee County. Every eligible voter was not mailed an absentee ballot request form in past elections though, and black churches typically drive voters in souls to the polls in Milwaukee County, explaining such high turnout for Milwaukee compared to other cities, but it has had a history of election fraud. Republican Waukesha County  Kathy Nicholaus repeatedly finding closets full of ballots at the last minute that nobody was aware of several elections in a row, before everyone demanded her resignation for repeated ballot discoveries that were always enough ballots to help Scott Walker win the election.  Former Democrat Milwaukee County Alderman Michael McGee’s son slashed Republican voter bus tires in the 1992 Presidential election. Basically, election fraud is pretty rampant in Wisconsin throughout the state. Wisconsin is more corrupt than Illinois. At least Illinois prosecutes corruption, unlike Wisconsin. It make them look bad. So they do not prosecute it, and since they are all corrupt, they are afraid to be exposed for their own corruption. The system in Wisconsin is set up in a way that conceals corruption. When trying to report corruption in one division to another division, they tell people to report it to the same division. They tell people to report police corruption to the police. I know this to be true because I have tried reporting it. Wisconsin is not a state. It is an orhanized crime ring, like America now is, and if it wasn’t for McCarthy, Sensenbrenner, Patriot Act author, Tommy Thompson Homeland Security Director, Ron Johnson Senate Intelligence committee member, Paul Ryan finance committee, or Reince Preibus RNC chair, it
      might not be that way. For some reason psychopathic Republicans keep imerging themselves in the highest national positions, and they are the most corrupt and incompetent group of psychopaths. The Democrats are really not much better, but it is the Wisconsin Republicans that have had a history of imposing hyper-paranoid policies of surveillance on the country, and not Wisconsin Democrats. I did not vote. Done with this shit! Disgusted with them all!

      And the hyper-paranoid, freaked out, psychopathic, losers hacked again! Anyone considering moving or opening a business really should not include this state of psychos on their list. That is just coming from someone who has lived here for over 30 years. It is a really backwards and corrupt state full of losers.

    4. CA Rebel says:

      Really people, Nancy Pelosi told us who the winner is. If Joe Biden had truly won, Nancy would be screaming it from the rooftops. Every news channel would be showing Nancy’s ” we beat your asses happy dance ” . But that didn’t happen, instead all the democrats silently faded back into their basements. Proof beyond a shadow of a doubt who won the election.

      • Darth Skippy says:

        Who is in charge, or what is the chain of succession, if no one officially wins the election?

      • Odd Questioner says:

        The reason they’re not dancing is because they’re too busy packing and arranging transportation to their pre-arranged ‘bunkers’.

        Most of the elite know that if the election is well and truly stolen (and it appears to be well on the way to being just that)…

        Hit-lists will be drawn, and most of them will be on at least one.

        The tech CEO types are likely already on their way to safe (for them) locations. The media CEOs and Billionaire financiers are likely already in their safe-spaces. You won’t find them in their homes, or where they typically go. They’re long gone, or are long-going right now. Soros and Steyer are off to Europe, New Zealand, some massive tract of Montana ranch that was purchased by some non-assuming holding company…

        …they’re not stupid, and their sense of self-preservation is likely just as strong, if not stronger, than that of the most fervent prepper.

        The Politicians and Media types cannot drop off as easily, but…

        Modern technology does allow the media types to remote-in to an extent, so when you see Anderson Cooper or Don Lemon, they’re not in CNN’s New York studio, but likely videoing-in from Nebraska, or Utah, or Hawaii (a leftist safe-space if there ever was one). They have the tech, and have had it for years. They can totally off-grid the whole thing.

        Politicians at the national level are in recess, and with COVID as further excuse, can stay in hiding until at least January. They do have to come out eventually, and I doubt there’s enough protection for all of them (Ms. Pelosi likely has a heavily armed detail as Speaker, but I doubt that many of her compatriots do.)

        ==

        So yeah, the elites are ‘safe’, relatively speaking. Pretty sure those folks at the state and local levels are not, though…

    5. Confederate Bill says:

      I knew corruption was the norm for anything gov’t or politically related, especially the Democrats. But my G*D, the corruption is so hideously brazen, so incredible and astounding, that before the race it could not have been believed by most to be of the magnitude it really is. As of today there are hundreds and hundreds of reported incidents of election fraud, all on the part of Democrats, and no doubt many more yet to be discovered. We now fully realize the corruption is so systemic, so ingrained, so woven into the fabric of gov’t and politics, that the political institutions, and its practitioners, are irretrievably debased. Any reasonable or intelligent person’s faith in our political institutions and its processes is now irrevocably shattered, and rightfully so. The only people who still trust it now are the weak-minded people who have been successfully propagandized and inculcated to mindlessly trust and believe gov’t/officialdom.
      100 years ago (circa 1920’s) the peak of electrical technology was the telegraph, light bulb, electric motor, simple radio, simple control instrumentation, and simple telephone. No computers, no internet, no satellite communications, and no electronic calculators of course. Yet election results could be tabulated (with pencil, paper, and a desk top mechanical adding machine) quickly and to an extremely high degree of accuracy. Within 24 hours of elections all results could be precisely known and the winner could be declared, even in nationwide elections.
      Now today, even with technology that can instantaneously calculate and transmit results, we are looking at possible weeks before all results are known. Even so, they won’t likely be real figures.
      Therefore, technology is not the problem. It is a people problem. Grossly corrupt officialdom, politicos, and special interest groups have so complicated and contorted, and literally destroyed what should be a simple process, that the process doesn’t and can’t work well anymore. Elections are now a grand farce, everyone knows it. The American election process is similar to 3rd world elections. The world is laughing at us, they should.
      Those involved with mass fake ballots and fake votes are in reality guilty of de facto insurrection. They are doing more damage to our political processes than any terror-ist ever has. But, we all know nothing will happen, it’s simply business as usual.
      Can you imagine the mentality of all these people running dishonest elections? They are so devoid of common rectitude and morality that they have no qualms counting fake ballots and votes in with real votes by real people that were cast in good faith. They are vile and despicable degenerates, just horrible and dreadful people, the lowest sort. They use their intelligence to degrade, to pervert, to despoil, to willfully hurt, to lie, to cheat and to steal.
      SECESSION NOW!!!

      • Pyra says:

        Jesus said it would be just like it is and so did the apostles. Crazy that the Son of GOD would know those things, eh?

        The corruption and satanically stupid is just getting started. The orcs are among us with cheerleading squads of copsucking Karens at every turn. See something, say something, or somesuch.

        Eat your lab-grown structured meat protein burger and wash it down with cockroach milk. And that is if you get anything to eat at all in the coming famines. (to think that you believe corruption is the worst thing coming! LOL)

    6. Bill says:

      We can all thank the g*dd*m white women in this country for a Dem. victory. They are the absolute worst. All a candidate has to do is appeal to them on an emotional basis, or tell them things that make them feel empowered. They believe it when they are told a first grade teacher should make the same salary as an electrical engineer. They believe politicians when they say women issues and well-being are a priority. That any resource or expense necessary should be subsidized by taxpayers, and that women rights should be enhanced even at the expense of men’s rights. The list is endless.
      Of course, most of you didn’t think how we’re going to pay for everything promised like all the new social programs, or the new green deal, or free college for everyone, or the millions of illegal immigrants financially draining local and state government coffers all over the country. How about the promise to tear down all borders controls and allowing illegals to pour over the border, they have said illegals won’t be turned away. Great, this is an invitation to untold millions to enter in and flood the country. He just put out the welcome mat because of the promise to take care of them for free. I’ve payed outrageous health insurance premiums and deductibles for years, they get all medical care totally free. Isn’t that wonderful.
      Oh, by the way, don’t bitch when your power bill goes up significantly, and gasoline is 6 dollars a gallon because they want to shut down the use of fossil fuels. Don’t whine when JB repeals the Trump tax cuts and you have less to spend. He promised to make businesses pay higher taxes, the cost of doing business will increase, the costs will be passed on to the consumer. Oops, further eroding disposable pay.
      The Dems. say suburban neighborhoods are inherently racist, that it can be fixed by the federal gov’t taking control of all zoning laws in the nation and build low-income housing and projects throughout single-family-home neighborhoods. You’ll save money here, your property taxes should go down because of the huge drop in the value of your house. And because you’ ll get to finally live in a high-crime area, you can finally be rid of all that privilege. Oh well, you voted for it, you’ll have no right to complain.
      Please do us all a favor, don’t have any children.

    7. Darth Skippy says:

      Pollyannaish, boyscout vote inspectors really sincerely seemed to have faith in the system, almost crying as though someone had taken their lunch money.

      I have seen alot of innocent conservatism, in this cycle, which reminded me of some sensitive, sheltered person, who had never seen any grit in his whole life, like in one of those far out places, where the animals have no fear of humans.

      • cranerigger says:

        Well said Darth Skippy. Folks raised in an era where everyone gets a participation trophy, political correctness, check-your-brain-in-at-the-door tolerance for all kinds of berzerk behavior, etc., are indeed “Pollyannaish”. They have been sheltered from the school-of-hard-knocks that many of us experienced on the path to wisdom. Schools that are mandated to not teach basic civics, no U.S.HISTORY, critical thinking, logic, etc. have poorly equipped their students for adulthood. The DEMONRATS are near achieving their goals of turning the country into a socialist hellhole.

        The dumb bast*rds have no idea of the chaos they have been instrumental in unleashing. Lenin’s “USEFUL IDIOTS.”

        • Bill says:

          Public schools have been inculcating students for years to be “good citizens”. That is, instilling passivity and deference to the State. No critical thinking required. Now that the Dem.s have likely won, they will be emboldened to really ramp up it up. They are going to demand the pay off from all those years of inculcation and propaganda. Submission, compliance, and unquestioned belief will be the new norm; half the population will gladly be goose-stepping in this new order anyway.
          The country will change dramatically, In just a few years young people will have no real knowledge of our history, only a very distorted one. Institutions promoting liberty and individualism will be curtailed. The demography and culture of the nation will be irrevocably altered with masses of subsidized 3rd world people flooding in who are accustomed to hard socialism (with the desired effect they will vote Democrat).
          Margaret Thatcher said socialism only works until they run out of other people’s money. The best advice now is for all the people of the nation who still treasure their freedoms, rights, and individualism to withdraw from interacting with officialdom and big business every way they can. Do your part to starve the beast. Use your money for you and your family only, legally minimize your taxes, don’t buy brand new vehicles, don’t waste your money on anything you really don’t need. But buy some precious metals if you can (the good thing is as they go up in value you’re not taxed on the increase). Never voluntarily cooperate with the State in any way possible. Homeschool your kids. Make a point to publicly ridicule their failings, lies, and hypocrisy. Never believe them or give them credibility, encourage others to do the same. Increase self-reliance. Develop associations with like-minded people. Stay informed, get your news from alt-news sources. They will be coming for your firearms sooner or later, never give them up (I lost mine when they accidentally fell off the boat while on vacation, only I can’t remember exactly where). Frequently think of ways you don’t need them or anything they offer. These measures will simultaneously empower you.

        • Darth Skippy says:

          I want to say innocent, though. I have nothing bad to say about these people, except how gentle and how believing they are.

          Damn, how did they make it this far, in this day and age?! And where?! It must be nice.

    8. Andrea.Iravani. says:

      Why would voter fraud surprise anyone? Everything that the governments do is a complete fraud! Why would they for some reason not commit fraud in elections as well? From the inside job of 9/11 to the over $21 trillion in accounting errors at the Pentagon between 1998 and 2015, to the seven false flag wars in the MENA, to the whacked out Russian hacking conspiracy theories, to the Health Scare Scamdemic, each fraud perpetrated more outrageous and larger than the last! Does anyone seriously expect cheaters and frauds to cheat in everything that they do except the elections?!

      Sorry Dr. Roberts, but I have to say that you should have seen this coming with your life time experience.

        The staged election fiasco is just one more piece of evidence of the mental incompetency, systemic corruption,and psychological instability of the psychopathic power structure. Is their anyhthing that happens that they do not stage? I jam just stunned that people consciously and willingly choose to do these things and act this way. I hope that they will explain why they choose to do the things that they do, because their choices really show what sick, sadistic, corrupt, incompetent, evil, losers they are.

        Imagine still believing one party is better than the other and they are not both pushing the agenda of the globalists. You fools arguing over which party is bad and which isn’t need to get off this site. This is not selective believing. Either you believe SHTF regardless of parties, or you don’t. So STFU about Dems or Repubs. They both are gonna fook us. Trump and Biden are BOTH in on it so take your ignorant fake woke assesses out of here.

      Bill, you’re right about the white women part. Hopefully we maintain control of senate which seems like it’s in our favor. Unless, the RINO’s are set up with a swiss bank account and vote other way. The NWO has truly upped their game and it looks as though they’ll bring about their endgame before 2030.

    10. Frank Thoughts says:

      Trump lied to his supporters for four years. He is a political c#ck tease – “lock her up!!”, “drain the swamp!!” – but he never did anything. He took his supporters on a rabbit hole journey (QAnon, conspiracy nuts) and burned up their time and energy in BS. It was a dangerous game because there is probably about 10 percent of his supporters who are dumb enough to do something and think they are defending a ‘great American hero’ when really Trump was always ever looking after himself and his handful of rich oligarch supporters.

      The best thing he could have ever had done for humanity was to fund a porn flick with his ‘wife’ and Ivanka, but he didn’t even do that. He has done nothing.
