  1. Or if the election results are thrown out because Trump manages to discredit them. Since the US is a Republic first and a Democracy second, the actual voting isn't as important as the House's decision. And since in this specific set of circumstances the House gets a one state, one vote decision to make, it is possible that even in a Democrat controlled House, Trump could be made president if enough Republicans go along with him.
  2. If he creates enough of a dispute about the whole issue that it ends up back in the House (it would have to be a serious mess to get to this though), he doesn't need to flip any states really, he can just bank on winning in there (apparently).
  3. Also @Howay, congrats on the new arrival! Altogether it must be a time of immense hope for the future in your household. Best wishes
  4. Momentum and the likes of AOC are to Labour and the Democrats what Farage is to the Tories. Some people simply won't compromise their principles just to get a soft win. Not that Farage has principles but I reference him more in terms of political effect rather than motivation. I mean AOC has absolutely slammed the democratic party now that the election is over. This is just the new normal I think. Where I would take heart though, is that for all the words, these people are still going to vote for the party they criticise when the time comes.
  5. There's a big schism between European and American Christians on political issues. European Christians, the few that remain, tend to be far more focused on compassionate, community outreach style, traditionally "left wing" political action. The US evangelicals on the other hand use Christianity in a very similar way to how ISIS use Islam. I mean the US called the sitting pope "dangerously left wing" ffs. They'll overlook anything a right leaning politician does or says because they don't actually understand or follow anything they profess to believe. So not only are the
  6. Boris will of course be gutted as well because this has just torpedo'd the current iteration of Brexit Thank god it's finally done.
  7. Looks like Fox are actively trying to talk Trump into conceding gracefully. I do wonder if he might just come out and give up despite all his rumblings otherwise.
  8. Trump can legally retain power if the republicans back him and there's nothing anyone can do about it because the entire US democratic system hinges on a gentleman's agreement to voluntarily stand down...
  9. Aye, fuck knows why.
  10. You should start your own thread of dumb centrists confidently predicting Biden would lose
  11. As icing on the cake to all this, apparently it's quite likely that when Trump leaves office, and therefore ceases to be a person of importance, Twitter is going to ban his ass
  12. There's absolutely no chance a left winger could have won this election. We barely scraped over the line with the blandest centrist I've ever seen. However, a left winger would have won the last one. I'm incredibly pleased that Biden is winning this, I'm pleased for what it means for climate change, Brexit, and international/political norms in general. But I don't think that this particular fight is over, and the centre is going to have to very quickly come up with something more coherent and viable than "not trump" if we're going to see off this threat next time out. 4 years doesn
  13. This is a great effort, well done her.
  14. Wolves have created a professional esports RL team. Previously both PSG and Barcelona have too. Wonder how long before Ashley gives us ours...!
  15. Message received ewerk, I'll fuck off.
  16. I am not as convinced about PA as you guys are. Georgia looks more likely to me..
  17. Are you putting AZ back in the Trump category then?
  18. He fucking enraged me every time someone posts him I don't know why, maybe it's cos he's from Durham and therefore vaguely feels like he was our responsibility, maybe cos he used to be a lib dem, maybe because he looks like he's 12 and debates like he's 8, but he pisses me off more than any of the other right wing wackjobs.
  19. Sounds like Brexit tbh.
  20. Does seem like Arizona is on shakier ground than originally thought tbf. Although as ever, that's just from the Trump side - but there's been wariness about it all day really.
  21. Michigan going to Biden... confirmed by CNN at least. Just Nevada now and then we're done.
