    It wasn't obvious to me that it was multiple choice...

    That was a oversight. Fixed it.

    We have a pool at work. I've got Trump losing the popular bigly but narrowly winning the electoral while losing both houses. Giant Meteor would probably have less of an effect.

    Maybe we need another question, Who will be President?.
    Madame President Pelosi is a possibility.

    I'll add "Advise & Consent" to the movie list for Tuesday.

    I was trying to explain that to a coworker. In 1800, we had until March to end the deadlock between Jefferson and Burr, otherwise, Hamilton would be the President until a new election could be scheduled. Now Trump's presidency ends on January 20, so I hope that adds some impetus to the process if the election ends up in the courts. Otherwise, a new election as early as next fall with the same or new candidates. I prefer the cage match option.

    Would this count as voting twice? Wocka wocka.

    Any interesting question, to me at least, is the percentage of voters who vote early (whatever the method) or who vote on the actual election day.

    Practically everyone I know and my family all voted early. I dropped my ballot off at a designated building of county administration. It was clearly marked and others were doing the same thing.

    We will know when we know. At first blush it sure seems that there has been a historic choice to vote early. Have you seen the numbers from TX for instance?

    I have not seen actual numbers, only reports that expected voter turnout is very high.

    It goes without saying that everyone who is eligible and able, should cast their vote.

    Somehow I just don't seem to derive any enjoyment from this sort of prognostication exercise.

    We faced serious problems prior to 2016 and then the country elected a remarkably destructive slob; and it may do it again.

    Exceptional country my ass; just another in a long line of countries that were once great and then declined.

    The last swing state poll I read about had 85% of respondents having already voted. Unless a large number of people are outright lying to pollsters about whom they voted for, I think that must bring down (by a lot) the polling errors from 2016.

    This is of course a possibility. I listen to a podcast that has a weekly segment with Chuck Todd of NBC News. It's a non-political podcast but they asked him about polling because of the 2016 polling disaster and he indicated that most polling entities have modified their methods and calculations so they hope to have more accurate numbers and if anything, err in the opposite direction.

    That said, polling seems inexact and the 2016 election proves this. And it's getting more difficult, it would seem, to make it truly random. And lying seems to be the norm now for some people, skewing results further.

    Remind me again how this game works: Is it one swig for every state that gets called in favor of, and then chug the whole drink if it's a swing state?

    You eat a salty snack every time some journo on cable says "historic"

    Or if you are on the trainer, do a rage sprint, when they say historic.

    Feel free to re-locate to any other country of your choice. You have that freedom, so why not take advantage of it?

    That freedom generally does not exist. Nor is the US willing to easily let go of its people, especially if they have money. Ask me how I know.

    Y'know how I know you haven't tried to relocate to another country recently?
