That said, a tight race where one of the candidates suggested people "inject bleach" during a deadly pandemic is not exactly a ringing endorsement for democracy, at this point.

Wins by 2 electoral votes.

In the Uk thats called a decisive victory and the will of the people

Only when the right people win, though. Otherwise it's "unfinished business".

Joe Biden has 264 electoral votes so far, this is my first election I've watched this closely, if he hits 270 is it over?

Unless Trump manages some really shady maneuver of some kind, yes.

Nevada's making me a bit nervous. Biden's ahead by just 0.6% with 75% reporting.

The Nevada secretary of state's elections division says it will give its next update on results Thursday morning. As of Wednesday evening, the state had completed 75% of its tally, with Biden having a slight edge.

Atlas Shrugged is great and all, but when you have IBD like I do, you need something softer like Charmin Ultra Soft. It's also easier on the plumbing on the way down.

At this rate, I'd expect that to happen regardless of the results.

Honestly, I'm shocked that there's not been a mass shooting incident at a polling location. Must be saving that for after the result.

They're very much waiting to see what Trump does. He might stick to the legal challenges and the cries of fraud even after defeat - he might even declare that he will remain President until 2024.

But if he runs off to Saudi Arabia while they start a revolt, they're gonna look like idiots.

Evidently, he's already considering a 2024 run, which means he's ready to lose, but not go to jail.

Fuck, I know Newt Gingrich is a fucking nobody these days, but if Trump were to actually do what he's suggesting here, actual civil war would be pretty fucking likely.
