I feel as if I should be doing an hour by hour addition of number as they come in. Right now, I’m feeling pretty optimistic. For all the reasons I mentioned earlier (yesterday, as of this publication), Donzo’s numbers are not as big as he needs. But it is very early and they are still voting in many place including all of the west coast. New England is an obvious winner for Biden. Kentucky and Indiana are red, red, red.
So much is hanging in the balance including Texas, Arizona, North Carolina, Georgia, Nevada, and Virginia. I know less about southwestern and midwest states, but have more information about east coast states. Not unreasonable because that’s where we live and from which we get a lot of shared news. A lot of New Englanders “winter” in the south, especially Florida. Also, the population has been changing in Arizona for years and finally, maybe it has swung the other way.
All of this is before our own polls close, which won’t be for another 10 minutes. Vermont is already called for Biden. I’ll be back in another half hour.
It certainly is an interesting race and it’s a real election. Nothing nerdy about this election. North Carolina? Tight as a jar of jelly lid. Georgia? Really close. Arizona? Probably Biden. Still too early. Be patient.
Bye-bye North and South Dakota. North Carolina is waffling as is Ohio. Meanwhile, I made fresh banana bread to which I added crushed almonds and walnuts, dried cherries, raisins, and cranberries. It tastes like banana nut and fruit bread. Excellent.
November 4, 12:40 AM
Nothing is happening. Well, wait — Trump has Florida (yuk) and Iowa (not a big surprise). Trump also has Montana and Wyoming, but no one expected anything else. But all the really close votes won’t be decided and a lot of early mail-in votes mean that too many votes haven’t been counted and the uncounted votes are critical.
Of course, Trump is declaring victor because “we” (who, me?) are trying to steal the election. It’s late, I’m tired. I’m going to bed. More will come, but it won’t happen tonight. Nope, not tonight.
