Dammit, stop with the they should call it stuff!

First of all there is still a statistical possibility this doesn't work out for Joe, however small, it's there and it's 2020.

Second, in John Kings words, let them count the damn vote!

Knock it off. The more solid votes we get the stronger the public perception of a win. On the outside chance they do a Dewey Defeats Truman by calling it and something nuts happens it will do nothing but reinforce the crazies allegations that our election system is falsely fucked. And probably destroy our vote forever. There's too much at stake to even take a 1% chance of being wrong.

It just sounds good

It doesn't mean anyone has won or anything...

Just because baby hilter will get a sad suddenly all standards and procedures change.

Fuck that. He lost. He is a loser. Let's move forward.

being riled up and egged on by Trump. Never in past elections have they delayed the calls when its obvious and I dont recall instances of them getting it wrong.

11. I agree. In addition to the reason you gave,

There is more pro than con in the Demsí being patient. One said is saying ďall votes should count, etc.Ē and the other is busy claiming victory falsely, lying, and filing a zillion lawsuits to stop counting. The Dems win the PR war.

15. Hell no. Biden has 50.4 of the popular vote and is leading in almost all

the battleground states. The networks are dancing to Trump's tune. It's a disgrace.

17. It's not a reasonable statistical possibility that Trump could win.

The race, especially on the whole (to 270 EVs), is over and should be called.

19. Totally agree. Very important media goes the extra mile to

defuse the fraudulent claims being made by the orange dime store Mussolini. Not enough for it to be nearly mathematically impossible for him to win. It has to be. And it has to be transparent. Part of the beginning of the rebuilding process.

22. This attitude is good-hearted but deeply mistaken.

It is a mistake that being extraordinarily cautious will give any more credibility to the result in the eyes of Trumpists.

It is much more important to the health of the country to be politically clear NOW to the country (after three days of careful vote counting) that Biden won this election. Waiting longer and longer, looking for outlandish ways Trump could win, is doing more damage to the nation than biting the bullet and announcing the truth.

As a-fuckin-noying as it, we have to wait until Rump literally can't win. Only because the margins are so small.

They spend segments explaining how itís impossible for Biden not to gain tens of thousands of more votes from mail in and provisionals in PA. And then they say itís too close to call after they just explained itís not

26. AP is not calling this to keep people watching TV

The provisionals in PA aren't all mail in's. Trump is exceeding his average needed in AZ. There are more than enough Military ballots to lose GA.

Joe goes up by 50k in PA I'd call it if I was AP. I think thats the threshold.

Say what you want. The call is all PR and that's what makes it important this time around. Comparing this to how they call in other elections is ridiculous. The rush to annihilate and brag is the tactic of the opposition. I've always believed rope a dope these fuckers then knock them out.

of the .5% recount number and over the number of votes received after election day, in case they throw them out. Then all will be safe.

They call races before all the vote is in based on overwhelming statistical probabilities. Thats their fucking job. Its not a mystery how the rest of the vote is going to go.
