2020 Election Results..... here we go.....

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

I've never looked at a pense tweet.
I was a Pence tweet virgin until GoCubsGo's link.
Me too, but I just put the tip in and got back out, so I think I'm still clean.

Imagine if anyone had posted this wishful headline a year ago:

Georgia defeats 2 incumbents and elects a Black and a Jew to seize Dem control of the US Senate

I think Loeffler's obscene race-baiting ads informed most Georgians. I did not know that Ossoff is Jewish until it was mentioned at the end of this vid I stumbled on:


Kelly Loeffler Loses Election And Her WNBA Team?

I'm not sure how well known it was among xtians.

If she loses tomorrow is she in the Senate on the 6th?
Guessing - It might take a couple of days for Raphael Warnock to be sworn in. Loeffler's last official act may be the Jan 6 treason. It may even take awhile to figure out the winner in a close race.

I think her term ended, and she couldn't get back in until after a win and swearing in. JMNVHO
Yeah, pretty sure the 20th amendment is pretty clear on this.
Section 1
The terms of the President and Vice President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January, and the terms of Senators and Representatives at noon on the 3d day of January, of the years in which such terms would have ended if this article had not been ratified; and the terms of their successors shall then begin.
I have not read up on the laws and procedures, but Loeffler (R-GA) was allowed to vote on the Cruz and Hawley stupidity last night - rejection of the AZ and PA electors.
https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/ ... vote=00001
https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/ ... vote=00002
She voted against both.

The AZ vote was 93-6. The 6 idiot traitors are:
Cruz (R-TX)
Hawley (R-MO)
Hyde-Smith (R-MS)
Kennedy (R-LA)
Marshall (R-KS)
Tuberville (R-AL)

The PA vote was 92-7. The 7 idiot traitors are:
Cruz (R-TX)
Hawley (R-MO)
Hyde-Smith (R-MS)
Lummis (R-WY)
Marshall (R-KS)
Scott (R-FL)
Tuberville (R-AL)


billy.pilgrim "wins". Apparently, the rest of the original Dirty Dozen, including Loeffler, abandoned the fascist coup attempt.

Perdue (R-GA) is the only Sen that did not vote on either. Maybe the end of Loeffler’s term is different since she was appointed? Or, maybe the rules change when there are runoffs and Perdue was just too humiliated and drunk to show up while Loeffler is shameless. Idk.
After mob disrupts proceedings, Congress turns back Electoral College challenge, certifying Biden as the next president

... While a group of Republican lawmakers challenged the results in Arizona and Pennsylvania, those objections did not withstand a vote in either the House of Representatives or the Senate.

At approximately 3:33 a.m. ET on Thursday, Congress had certified enough electoral votes to surpass the 270 threshold that guaranteed Biden would become the 46th president, effectively ending a desperate bid by Trump and his supporters to overturn the results of the November election.

“The votes for president of the United States are as follows: Joseph R. Biden, Jr. of the State of Delaware has receive 306 votes. Donald J. Trump of the state of Florida has received 232 votes,” Vice President Mike Pence declared.

“The announcement of the state of the vote,” Pence continued, “by the president of the Senate, shall be deemed a sufficient declaration of the persons elected president and vice president of the United States each for the term beginning on the 20th day of January, 2021.”

Moments after Pence declared Biden the winner of the election, Trump released a falsehood-laden statement in which he pledged an “orderly transition” of power.

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump said in the statement made public by White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino. “I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted. While this represents the end of our greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”

... Trump spoke at a large rally in Washington, where he repeated numerous discredited claims, including that the election was rigged against him. He ominously informed his own vice president what he expected of him.

“Mike Pence, I hope you’re going to stand up for the good of our Constitution,” Trump said at the rally, “and for the good of our country. And if you’re not, I’m going to be very disappointed in you, I will tell you right now.”

Trump also encouraged his crowd of roughly 25,000 supporters to head to the Capitol and make their displeasure with the certification clear....

“To those who wreaked havoc at our Capitol today, you did not win,” Pence said. “Violence never wins. Freedom wins. And this is still the people’s house.”

While Thursday’s vote reached an explosive conclusion, the final results of the election were not all that close. Biden received 7 million more popular votes than Trump.

With his Electoral College votes certified by Congress, Biden is now set to be inaugurated on Jan. 20.

AOC does not name any individuals at the link I posted but she cites, among other groups: "Thank you @fairfightaction"
Though nerve-racking at the time, it ended up being delicious that Loeffler and Perdue led for several hours. Pooor cons!

The gasbag Perdue is still in COVID quarantine if I'm not mistaken. Maybe he'll stay there.

Ah. However, votes usually list Senators that are "Not Voting". For example:
https://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/ ... vote=00292

Last night's votes don't mention Perdue at all. So. it's still unclear to me why Senator-unelect Loeffler was able to vote while Senator-unelect Perdue gets no reference.

Think it will be close?

RCP Average 12/14 - 1/4 Ossoff +0.5
RCP Average 12/14 - 1/4 Warnock +0.5

Are the polls still undercounting Repugs or have they made adjustments? It might be a long night.
Pending the up to 17K military and overseas ballots that must arrive by tomorrow - too few to change the winners:

Final Results Ossoff +0.8 (almost 37K), damn close.
Trafalgar Group (R) and FOX 5/InsiderAdvantage were closest - Tie.

Final Results Warnock +1.6 (almost 75K), damn close.
FOX 5/InsiderAdvantage was closest - Tie.

It was expected to be close - actually hoped to be close for Dems - but both were outside the .5 limit for recount. Life is improving.

I was unclear. I meant "damn close" to the RCP Average predictions. I guess polling validity is not dead.

Beats me. Maybe they just forgot about old Pur Dew in all the hubbub. I suspect he's probably used to it. He's just a "use when needed" type of guy.
