This is interesting - the totals of electors certified so far

Using the chart in this thread: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100214706912

I put together a rough estimate of the number of electors that should be certified at the times provided:

10 AM - Trump 22, Biden 3
11 AM - Trump 50, Biden 23
11:30 AM - Trump 56, Biden 32
11:45 AM - Trump 64, Biden 32
12 Noon - Trump 97, Biden 146
12:30 PM - Trump 105, Biden 146
1 PM - Trump 123, Biden 171
2 PM - Trump 174, Biden 202
3 PM - Trump 229, Biden 240
4 PM - 232, Biden 240
4:30 PM - Trump 232, Biden 247
5 PM - Trump 232, Biden 302
7 PM - Trump 232, Biden 306

Of course the chart does not include snags and delays in the counting and certification. But I find it curious that CNN is showing right now that Trump has 56, while Biden has 125.

1. Maybe some met/certified early? Is there reason to think that schedule was set in stone?

3. No, it's nto set in stone as I indicated

But by my estimate, Trumps should have been well ahead until the noon votes. Instead, he lagged behind all the way there.

Now the totals shown are a little closer to my estimates for noon - but that is still a significant lag in the reporting.

I'm sort of wondering if this is being done on purpose to that Trump stayed behind on the electoral vote earlier than might have been expected to drum it into his orange skull that he's lost.

4. It took about an hour for NYS's proceedings..

So while they're listed for 12PM, their formal vote wasn't done until 1PM. The more electors, the longer it takes, because they have to sign copies of documents for filing with several state officers etc as well as the set that goes to the Capitol.

6. Yeah, it looks as though the votes are running about an hour or two behind.

That's OK, President Election Joe Biden will lead from now on. And the "short fingered vulgarian" will wear his thumbs to nubs tweeting in rage!

15. Yes, I turned away from CNN a while back

Watching Wire in the Blood. Soon as this episode is over, I'll turn to MSNBC to watch the grand finale.
