Also adding a link to Fox News' map because they have a nice county by county version as well as an option to look at the 2016 maps.

I just voted. The main difference from the past at my precinct was more young white males voting. Working class types. Anecdotal, I know, but those are going 99% if not 100% to Trump here, despite being leftwing Palm Beach County.

Looking at New Hampshire returns so far the GOP is kicking butt, by a lot.

I’ll be voting later today when the wife gets home. We always go as a family and my nine year old is very excited about this election. 

Since a 100,000,000 have voted already, I don’t expect long lines. 

 

And yes, this will be a very looooooooong day.

I remember in 2016 Liz had the NYT win probably page up for both candidates that updated as the night wore on.  It was apparent pretty early that Trump had a real shot, unless you watched coverage on legacy media.  To this day they still think he lost...

Some people out here are saying CA may turn a paler shade of blue.  One positive of progressives leaving and poisoning other states?  They can no longer poison this one.  We just need another 10 million more of them to leave...

Here is my prediction:  The pandemic will end on November 4.

I voted Saturday, but went to my polling place this morning and there was a full parking lot. I am going to go back shortly and sit with the older guys at  the entrance and monitor it. This is after talking to the township clerk and telling me they already had 60% of last presidential election voted Saturday.

I am thinking in my area we will get close to 100% participation. Which is awesome, no matter who they vote for. I am hoping my numbers hold up and Michigan goes for the President by 3%.

Two big parts of California turning a lighter shade of blue or even purple...

1. Main in ballots: It's just as easy for Republicans to mail in a ballot as it is for democrats.

2. Because it is easier, and because of Trump enthusiasm, more Republicans in California will vote this time, even if they know that California will still go for biden.

What part of Michigan are you in? I used to live in Bay Shore, Charlevoix, Petosky area when I was a kid.  Did a short sprint in Detroit as an adult.

I showed up this morning before the polls even opened and the line was already half way around the elementary school just to get in.   Record election day turnout in Missouri is being predicted with multi-hour lines to vote

I used to wonder why parts of the Upper Peninsula would vote Democrat so heavily, and then I remembered that lots of UAW guys would move there when they retired.

Makes sense.  It was very blue collar when I lived there as a kid.  As I understand it now, Bayshore is a resort town.

Michigan has a Dem Senate seat up for grabs today too.  Gary Peters, who voters in his own state don't even know, is facing a tough test:

Polls have Peters +5 somehow.  We'll see.

Barring a recall, have to wait for 2022 to get rid of Whitmer.  And Newsom.

Haven't seen any polling numbers for Cooper this election cycle.  Still waiting for my bumper sticker that was promised in 2004...

Just got back from voting... IN PERSON for the first time. Finally got me one of them I Voted stickers. :lol: Always been absentee before. Seemed a lot of Trump voters, but my county is a red county.

I lived in Indian River as a kid, so I know that area well. I am in White Lake now and it voted democRAT the last 12 years. I am thinking it will go for Trump this time. Hillary took it 5% in 2016.

Whatever happens today and into tomorrow, thanks to the members, moderators, and owner of this site for making the Trump era even more joyful, fun and exciting for me than it already was and is. Living where I live, I didn't have too many people with whom to celebrate in real life on a daily basis, but this virtual community was always here for me.

If it somehow doesn't go our way this time, I know we will all be very disappointed for this country we love, but I also know we will generally behave with more dignity and, well, sanity than the other side managed four years ago (and in all the intervening time since). How could we not? In the end, we have our faith, values, and inner resources to call upon, which, all other things being equal, a lifetime's experience has shown me (and I'm sure all of you) are collectively just more solid on the side of what is right than on what is left. Besides, let's not even try to compete with their sore loserdom...hey, give them their due, they have the lock on that one; it's the one thing they do best!

On the other hand, if it does turn out to be a great night for America (and I am pretty optimistic it will be), there's nothing wrong with being a sore winner this week, especially after all the months (years?) of their establishment media trying to demoralize normal voters into staying home with their "polls" and propaganda.

So...really looking forward to being one of the sorest winners around, tonight! Time to keep America great!!!

Voting observations from NYC...

#2 on line at 5:20 AM.  We have to wait outside due to covid.  I understand.

Get inside at 6 AM and go to my table. Use the fast pass bar code and my name pops up on the poll worker's iPad.  Nice.  Better than flipping through the old huge paper books to find my name.  She asks for my address and I verify it for her. So far, so good.

Poll worker presses her iPad to go to next screen and 2 choices pop up: "Chinese or Korean".  Say what?  What does this mean?  She's confused as I am.  She calls the supervisor over who repeats the process and again the 2 language options show up.

I tell her to press Chinese and that should get us to the next screen.  It does and ends up being no big deal, but it's quite annoying that all this $$ was spent and no one had the common sense to test it before making it go live.  Then they would have seen the 2 language options, saw there was a problem, and fixed it beforehand.

Of course, it begs the question of why someone felt there was even a need to put "Chinese or Korean" in the first place.  All naturalized citizens (my wife is one) have to pass an English comprehension test in order to become a citizen.

If you can't read and understand an English voting ballot, then you didn't pass the English comprehension test.   With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, it's like the signs that say "Vote aqui."  If you can't understand a sign that says "Vote here", then you didn't pass the English comprehension test.

The line was still around the block by the time I left at 6:15.  Hope everyone does their civic duty and votes.  At least the TV ads and phone calls that have bombarded us for the past week will stop.

Here's to wishing-hoping-praying for a landslide victory for Liberty and Freedom in America vs. socialism. I have faith but i know a lot of idiots in this world that can't stand the Donald so they are willing to give up their freedoms (which they really don't know they have) to get him out of office. I've always said, vote with your head not your heart.

Whatever the results are, I loathe the main stream media now more than when this all began. 
 

They are a detriment so our republic.

This BTW, is a wonderful statement.  Hope you don't mind that I read it aloud on my podcast.  Sums everything up very nicely and captures my sentiment.

Job well done!!

It should have never left.  They tightened up the same day register/vote law that allowed many visiting students from MA to swing the state blue in 2016.  Plus with many of those same students remote learning from MA they can't vote.

The narrative by a lot of anti-Trump and skeptic-Trump people is that people are going to vote against Trump’s personality, COVID response, and “lies”. 

So we’re supposed to believe that these people are otherwise open to voting for a republican president but because of those reasons they won’t this time? They’ve observed all that going on, but are missing things that democrats support: cities burning, COVID lockdowns, jobs lost, government takeovers, even open socialism? And they PREFER the democrat way? 

Sorry. I would accept that there are some clueless people who can be convinced by propaganda. Sure. But if people have observed ONE set of things, then they’ve also observed a SECOND asst of things, and most rational people are thinking, I prefer what Trump is trying to get us to, instead of the other team. 

The media is trying to brainwash people. I think it won’t work.
