22. I passed because it all depends on Florida

Florida counts it’s absentee ballots as they are received, so the tally can be released immediately after the polls close.

It’s quite likely that a winner can be projected for FL on election night.

If Trump wins FL, then we may have to wait several days, perhaps weeks, for final counts In other states to be certified.

However, if Biden wins FL, it’s all over for Trump, he has no path to 270 EV’s without FL.

If Biden wins FL, then we will know the next president on election night, we just won’t know by how much he won.

voted yes cuz the trends will be perfectly clear IMO nt msongs Sep 2020 #1
