Election Year 2016

Recommended Posts

I know the board wants me to upgrade again - may need to do that.  Can't seem how to edit topics anymore.  Grrr...

Technology has not been my friend lately.

I know the press in DC has been pretty clear that there are almost no scenarios in which the returns will be released before the election. He’s been able to game the courts just enough to keep the window safe.

I can’t get there tonight, my son was diagnosed with Covid today and I’m dealing with getting him taken care of away at school, but I’ll sure as hell be at the Supreme Court tomorrow night. This just feels so huge.

Dixie - I hope your son has a mild case and no longterm impacts!!!

I am devastated by the loss of Justice Ginsburg.

Thanks, Hoya. He’s ok so far. His only symptom is loss of smell. He lives in a house with 5 other friends and some of them have mild cold symptoms and loss of smell and taste but nothing more serious. They really don’t know how they got it because they’ve been basically on lockdown for a few weeks. Most of them are athletes, so we will most likely have them all see a cardiologist over the long winter/Thanksgiving break before they theoretically play in January.

So sorry to hear that Dixie.  I've had a few friends that have caught it now with various degrees of symptoms.  What seems to be the worst for all of them is the stress and worry that goes along with it. :(

Trump has corona virus.   25 White House connected infections as of today.

And your vote actually counts because you’re in a swing state. Yay. 

What is your sense of the senate race?  Cunningham is such an idiot. If he loses democrats will never forgive him because it will be his own fault. Having an affair during a close campaign. Ugh.

Senate race is very tight based on all polls. More democrats are voting early - not sure what will happen come election day. Not too bad on mail-in ballots being rejected but one county is statistically MUCH higher than others - esp for african american ballots - but it's been publicized so hopefully fixed. Courts ruled AGAIN that you must allow redress for these rejections up through election day (ie they're provisional so if it's not accepted, go find out why and FIX at board of elections office....)

Tillis isn't well loved, so we'll see. Fingers crossed! SOOOOOOOO much money in that campaign - I think they broke records again, sadly.

Some great data (and I always love a Tableau data visualization 😉 Democrats are a third of registered voters in NC but half of the early voting so far. My husband just said he heard that repugs were ahead in terms of voter registration but I haven't seen those data....

Here are the voting stats from 2016.  Anyone want to guess what they will be for 2021 election??

  • Around 138 million Americans voted in the 2016 presidential election. From Business Insider.

  • However, those 138 million Americans only make up 58.1% of our voting-eligible population (those American citizens over 18). From United States Elections Project.

Numbers are just sooooooo high now compared to 2016 at the same time. I really hope we get the best turnout ever, by a huge landslide....
