I don't know. That was kinda forecasted early on, so I'm kinda shrugging at that one.

Well, its one of the key states Trump needs to win alongside Florida and Nevada. He's already got Ohio and Florida-- now all he needs is Nevada (which hasn't released anything yet) to have a clear path to victory.

A lot of people say that we're going to have to see the fallout of this for only four years. But Trump is going to repeal laws that took years of progress to make in the first place-- and on top of that, be electing the next Supreme Court justice who will gladly try to shoot down attempts at rectifying these laws for years after. Not to mention that for all his talk about trying to remove a rigged system, he and his supporters have been known to engage in multiple acts of voter intimidation, fraud and other shenanigans, so we might have to put up with Trump-likes for years thanks to them skewing a system towards Republicans (not to mention that Republicans themselves will gladly try to bring up the BS laws that tried to stop people of color and non-Republicans from voting again-- this time with a higher chance of success).

But at this point, I think I will simply accept the results, whatever they may be, and try to make the best of it for me and those I care about. If it comes up that there's been voter fraud, I'll keep an open mind but not assume the worst right away. I'll fight whatever unreasonable legislation comes to the best of my ability, and I hope you all will join me in some way.

Clinton is in the lead, but for how long? Even with California & Hawaii's Electoral votes, he's just creeping behind her and there are few safe democrat states now. The rest are rural Republican friendly and battleground swing states. What a show!

Why is that exactly?

Assuming Trump takes New Hampshire, he has 257 Electoral votes. Michigan has 16, which would push him over the 270 threshold.

I never thought I'd say this, but I'm honestly hoping McMullin takes Utah to keep those votes away from Trump.

I just can't believe this election is even close.
