1. At this point, I'd be happy with that.

2. It's enough to win but I worry about faithless electors.

21. I think most states prohibit that

But that could certainly be a factor.

23. Most do, and it would be unlikely if one went rogue, but everything is weird now.

8. Then we lose

There's a near-guarantee we get one Faithless Elector.

18. No, there's zero chance of that happening.

If it's 270-268, no one will switch.

19. Zero?

First off there is never a 0% chance of anything. Second, we had like 8 Faithless Electors in 2016.

6. You assume WI

I don't know if the 15% outstanding is right, but, if it is, Biden will need 60% of the remaining vote.

9. I am counting WI in our column.

Trump was expected to win the election day vote.

10. Of course. Anything is possible. But

if I'm looking at these numbers and I'm for Trump, I'm having a hard time seeing how my guy gets over 269.

11. 269-269 Trump wins

It goes to State House delegations, and Republicans control them. Then the Senate votes for the VP.

we are in for troubled times.

15. Even if the House Delegations voted for Biden...

The Senate would vote for Pence. They pick the VP.

17. It would certainly be interesting

And at 78 (soon) I'd be a nervous wreck with Pence as VP.
