Pa

In case you are home crying under your bed, I will tell you that Pennsylvania is still in play, although T is “leading.” Here, everyone was STRONGLY and repeatedly encouraged to vote by mail, because the powers that be seemed to like how easy it was for people to vote that way, and it encouraged greater voter participation and all that. I got so many fliers in the mail about voting by mail that I couldn’t believe it. Every day I was receiving a little pile of papers about how to vote by mail. I received at least 5 applications to send in for a ballot. So I felt odd that I’d decided to vote in person on Election Day.

When I went to vote, I carried a little fold-up camp stool in case the line was long and my back couldn’t handle standing for long periods. What a laugh. There was NO LINE. No one was there except the staff and one person ahead of me. It looks like everyone voted by mail in ballot already.

And now the courts are forcing the state to abide by an old law that says they can’t start counting until Election Day. So all those mail in ballots have been sitting there, and they have to deal with the mass of them all at once.

And of course many of them were still coming in on the 3rd, too, because the major county, Allegheny, had ballot mistakes and had to re-send corrected ballots just a few days ago. So the mail is mostly late too. They’ve got to hurry and crank out that counting.

And statistically, Democrats favor mail-in ballots. So I believe the counting of paper ballots is going to be a majority of Democratic votes.

(Fingers crossed, rosary, crucifix, and Druidic prayer articles in my tight hands too.)

It seems to hinge on Nevada. I stood in line at the polls for an hour and a half because I knew he would be having a fit over mail in ballots.
I took 3 other elderly women with me and one had to be pushed on her walker but we did it!! All of us saw an ugly little confrontation but no
threats.

I'm counting on you to wish it into happening.

Surprisingly, Georgia has become very interesting. I would love to see a blue interruption to all the red down south.

I was disappointed this morning that there was no Blue Wave. I figured for sure Dems could take the Senate. What's more disappointing is the realization that I will have to share the country with idiots for the rest of my life!

I know, I am astounded that so many could be so stupid, and worse.

Thank you for letting us know - I was just now looking at a map of decided states, and it depressingly shows Pennsylvania not decided yet, but tending toward the GOP. We've been through the wringer this year, and to take my mind off things, I'm going to wash the wildfire ash off my cars this afternoon.

I obsessed with the numbers for Pennsylvania this afternoon, had to tear myself away. Last night, there was a 300,000 lead for Trump, but the more votes they count the faster it shrinks. It's now about 41,000 now. If they just have enough time, I believe the state will go to Biden.
