Man it's sad that you have to worry so much about your Southern neighbor. I'm sorry we are such a pain in the ass.

I don't know what you're all complaining about . Under Trump we have had ten hours of studio releases from Ae and something like 30 hours of soundboards, as well as the best aphex music since the

The last 4 years has been interesting and sad here - although where I live has always been decidedly more conservative, under trump the last 4 years all of the racists and nutters have found a voice in the mainstream, lots of people I thought were friends find it acceptable to be anti immigrant racist dicks out in the open, they buy into lots of propaganda and anti media stuff etc. His presidency has normalized shit that was at least before hidden here lol. Le-sigh

It's all good friend! Totally understand and sympathize. Having to work today in a separate hectic environment while simultaneously having a panic attack over all this shit. It's a lot.

Texas (reliably Red but with a lot of liberals).

fuckin Texas man...can't believe I bought into the hype that this might be the year for the state to turn blue. just looked at the election results map by county and sure enough, red everywhere but near the big cities and the RGV.

All the in-person votes there have been counted, all that's left is mail in ballots which should massively favour Biden. He's just going to increase his margin MI and WI too.

I also saw that the majority of the mail-in ballots in NV are from the only two counties that are for Biden (the counties with large cities).

the kicker is the turnout is so much better, that's the shitty thing about being a "purple state"

keep in mind most of those red counties literally have smaller populations than a large apartment complex or subdivision in a blue metropolitan county

Texas didn't flip as many seats as 2018 but it didn't lose any either. GOP turnout was upped by MAGA stans who would not have bothered to vote for Romney or McCain previously.

Not likely - next year is a congressional redistricting session where the Republican-controlled legislature will redraw districts in their favor for future assurance of dominance. This was the democrat's best chance in 20 years to flip Texas, and it failed. Probably will be at least 20-30 more years before the chance happens again unless there is some huge upheaval politically to affect the status quo.

I thought Texas awarded electoral votes based on the state's popular vote? They do it based on districts?

MSNBC stated that Biden received the most votes ever in a presidential election. too bad about that electoral college though.

I really don't get the winner takes all for each state. If it's 60/40 in a state, wouldn't it be more beneficial and representative for the population to let the losing party get around 40% of the electoral votes? What's the rationale with winner takes it all?

theres no sense trying to rationalize it- the electoral college is still around because it is politically advantageous to small states (mostly republican) to keep it in place.  and the political will to change would have to come from the senate, which already overly represents small states (2 senators per state no matter the population).  the electoral college, at this point in time, upholds racist and monied interests, valuing the votes of white america more than diverse cities where there are actually  more people

there are a couple states that split the electoral votes proportionally but they're the exception not the rule. it's dumb. we should get rid of the electoral college. it was set up by the ruling class when the constitution was written to ensure the "plebs" didn't take over.

well so much for a potential "blue wave" as had been hyped in recent months. it all looks about the same. even turtle man managed to slither through. 

absolutely mind blowing that after dealing with the worst president in the country's history, people still lined up to vote for him. I'm pretty sure that Hitler could run today as a republican. it really doesn't matter who it is, people are going to vote along party lines no matter what because they've been brainwashed into it. do not ever think for yourselves, because of some notion you can't even explain rationally to anyone tells you to. human beings deserve all the horrible stuff that happens to us. history teaches nothing. fuck this.
