    Yeah the hypothetical of what this would have looked like without Covid is actually mind-blowing.

    Biden is still 2/1. I don't know enough about US Politcs to know why, but everything I've read seems to suggest he should be the favourite from here when you consider the outstanding votes that need counting.

    They had a Trump supporter on radio 4 yesterday saying how incredibly proud she was of the 400 miles of wall he built on the Southern border which has stemmed the flow of narcotics and illegals. Genuinely sounded like she was going to cry with pride.

    What Trump does is he makes a large section of the population feel extremely happy, something that I definitely underestimated.

    A narrow Biden win is probably at the optimum popcorn/avoiding apocalypse balance so well played all-round

    No clue what is going to happen but everyone is aware MI, PA, an WI are all waiting on early votes to be counted because state legislatures required that vote to be counted day of and after in person. So it could swing quite a bit. GA is all Atlanta and NC is early votes that arrive the next couple days. And here in AZ there is still lots of early vote to count.

    If Trump loses it is a big repudiation of just him; down ballot Rís have not lost much and even gained a bit in the House. We are just a heavily geographically sorted country that is really polarized and people donít care very much about all this. So Rís come home because they donít see how it all affects their lives and they are mostly not wrong.

    It invalidates the shy Trump thing a bit to me. I get being shy about it in say New York but here in Phoenix? Until Trump showed up Rís hadnít lost a statewide race for over 20 years.

    What I live for is David Lammy taking to twitter (he still very much 'takes to twitter') and making pompous statements at times like this. Thanks David, now I wonder what the Socialist MP for Bremen South thinks, or maybe the En Marche MP for La Rochelle West, someone of far more global importance than you.

    The bookies really shat the bed after that Florida result. Trump may still win, but Biden's price had no right being the best part of 4/1.

    What are the bookies offering for President Kanye? Astonishing racism that he's barely being discussed here.

    Him not being on the ballot in the majority of the states because he didn't submit on time might be the big issue there.

    In a Trump-Kanye two party election I reckon I'd be out there selling the MAGA hats and the orange face paint.

    In hindsight, this. I've been following this guy who was pretty confident all night that the market was being daft and is probably on at some of the best prices. Kind of thing that if you prepare for you'll make a killing.

    He is more aligned to our interests in a post-Brexit universe. Sleepy Joe is rabidly pro-Ireland (as all Democrats are) and probably more interested in having the EU onside.

    Yep - I traded like a wet cunt, which in a sporting event or something less riddled with one-off panic I would never have done.

    Very difficult to keep one's nerve on these things.

    One of the two geriatric white dudes is gonna win.

    EDIT: Well, 'white' is perhaps not exactly the right term for Trump.

    West is more obviously deranged, at least Trump is predictably self centred.

    IF Biden wins this. Is Trump's claims of fraud an attempt to hang on the the presidency regardless, which he will them pursue through the courts as much and for as long as possible? Or simply him saving face?

    He's clearly laying the groundwork for a defeat, if he wins he can simply brag about doing it against the odds. Somehow his support doesn't see this for the little bitch move that it is, or care that it makes their country look even more like a tin pot shit hole than the last four years have.
