All living former presidents need to step forward and address the Trump attack on our democracy.

The way things are going, a third of Americans aren't going to accept that Joe Biden won. This is a crisis that threatens our democracy, our nation, and our peace. Trump would love to burn America to the ground and set Americans against Americans. We need senior leaders of both parties to speak out and nip this in the bud. They need to do it in a forceful and united way, calling out Trump for what he is and the damage he is doing.

A lot more Republicans than Democrats are going to die of Covid.

With this election win, more than ever, Democrats are going to listen to the words of Joe Biden who says wear a facemask, keep your distance, Covid is a real threat.

On the other side, Trump is stoking up more anger at what he is portraying as a stolen election. He will still be holding his rallies and stirring up more hatred, based on his grievances and lies. Effectively, Trump is still going to be their idol. He's still going to be their cult leader. Republican lawmakers are doing nothing to stop that.

Is his base going to take a blind bit of notice of what Joe Biden has to say about mask-wearing? Of course not. They are being told he cheated to win the election. Their base is being brainwashed into being anti-Joe, no matter what the actual facts and no matter how good Joe is as president-elect and as president, just as they are brainwashed into being anti-science.

So, battle lines have been drawn between the Democrats who have a leader who says wear masks and listen to the experts, and the Republicans who are told it is okay to mock mask-wearers and Covid is really no big deal - Trump got over it and "we've turned the corner."

The result will be a disproportionate number of Republican deaths. And one day a study will be done that will show that is so, and show Trump's actions helped to kill tens of thousands of Republicans. And what will his followers say? They will say the study is a Democratic hoax, conducted by Democratic scientists who are aren't as smart as Donald Trump.

France just had US population equivalent of 435,000 cases in one day.

France 65 million population +86,852 cases.

Putin stepping down? Do you think that has a direct link to his failure to take control of the USA?

Serious question. The US election results means his puppet has failed to deliver the full fascist takeover of America that he had hoped for. Isn't this news that he is planning to step down, just a little too much of a coincidence?

Do you think a deal should be done with Trump - he encourages a peaceful transition in exchange

for going easy on his crimes?

EDIT

I see a lot of "no" replies.

Specifically, I'm think of the damage Trump can do before he leaves, in particular inciting civil unrest.

Okay, how about if he was told something along the lines of: "These are all the charges you will face. However, if you want us to play nice, you need to do the same." Then, when Trump leaves office, he is still arrested.

Meanwhile, 1,201 new Covid deaths. 108,000 new cases. Expect almost a million new cases in a week

at this rate of increases. Will hit 10 million US cases by Friday.

Thank God for president-elect Biden to give us a chance to bring this under control, but how many are going to die before that happens?

NYT Big shift back to Biden in Georgia. 64% chance, Trump lead down to 3%. 91% reporting.

Fox News projects Dems gain 5 House seats

Posted on 538

Fox News’s Decision Desk announced a little while ago that Democrats would hold onto the House and even gain a five seats over the 233 they currently hold.

North Carolina voting analysis.

The Democrats currently have a big lead: using the registered supporters metric, they’re ahead by eleven points.

Now, this lead is very similar to 2016, when they lost the State to the Republicans.

But there’s a big difference: in 2016, the total early vote was much smaller (it was 3.1 million, a total that has already been surpassed) and there were 1.6 million votes on the day. This time, the number will be far smaller – I’d guess less than a million. That means that President Trump has to win “on the day voting” by three-to-one or more to be in with a shot. Doable? Yes. Easy? No Siree.

One last thought. At current rates of voting, and assuming that Biden is picking up half unaffiliated voters, Biden will pass Clinton’s vote total at the end of day on Thursday – a full four days before the election.
