The Failing New York Times says things still look positive for Biden:
Even though victory remained far from certain on Wednesday morning, those states began to come to life for him, one by one, like lights flickering back on under the power of a backup generator. By around 9:10 a.m. Eastern time, Mr. Biden was leading in enough states that, if he won them, would give him 270 electoral votes.
I can’t say I’m optimistic. I can easily see the generator sputtering and dying. It might have something to do with the experts having assured us that Biden was crushing Trump nationwide by ten points or so.
Meanwhile, Trump gonna be Trump:
With no winner declared in the 2020 presidential race, President Trump appeared in the White House just after 2 a.m. on Wednesday to brazenly claim he had already won the election — and to insist that votes stop being counted even though the ballots of millions of Americans had yet to be tallied.
Speaking with a mix of defiance, anger and wonder that the election had not yet been called in his favor, the president recounted his standing in an array of battleground states before falsely declaring: “Frankly, we did win this election.”
No news organizations declared a winner between Mr. Trump and Joseph R. Biden Jr., and a number of closely contested states still had millions of mail-in ballots to count, in part because state and local Republican officials had insisted that they not be counted until Election Day.
Mr. Trump said, without offering any explanation, that “we’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court,” and added: “We want all voting to stop.”
Meanwhile, it looks like I will have a new boss. So: the nation has failed to repudiate Trump, but my county repudiated the best choice for District Attorney.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change . . .
P.S. If Biden pulls this off, it may mean that only one of my predictions will come true: that “in coming days and weeks, there will be a test of loyalty: are you willing to loudly declare that Donald Trump was defrauded out of the presidency?”
I’m seeing hints of it already.
