Ossoff takes 12,800 vote lead
Posted by: Ca Bob

The NYT and Nate estimate that there are maybe 76,000 votes left to count, and the strong majority of them will go to Ossoff. They've estimated that Ossoff has a better than 95% chance to win, which would send both Democrats to the senate and I would no longer find much need to type the words Mitch and McConnell.

It's curiously annoying how other Republicans (such as Perdue) are now copying the Donald in asserting that they won, even though the numbers are to the contrary. Are they now the party of innumeracy?

Anyway, it's very close to a moment of celebration.

On another note, tomorrow should be an interesting day in D.C.. . . . Steven Colbert had some fun talking about the bind that Mike Pence is in, what with Trump demanding that he do something impossible.

Mike Pence thinks he's so important. Letterman said that the only reason he won for Governor of Indiana was because he looked like Bobby Knight.

But I'm not aware that Mike Pence made a name for himself throwing chairs into crowds of people.

Ossoff now up by 16,370 with about 73,000 votes left to count.

When do they count the absentee ballots or has that been done?

Is the count continuing or is there any delay?

A guy can hope, can’t he?

And I am hoping BIG time.

Stay well.

SOS says votes will be counted by noon.

Ossoff is likely winning by more than 0.5%, so no recount either.

I think the only outstanding ballots that haven’t been counted are some military ballots.
They can arrive as late as Friday, IIRC. But there aren’t that many outstanding, so it may be a moot point.

No automatic recount, but I believe Perdue can ask for one and it is the discretion of either the governor or SOS, don’t remember which, to say whether or not he gets it.
Do not be surprised if he gets a recount.

There are still ballots in Dekalb. Our only objective at this point is to get Ossoff beyond the half point recount threshold. There are ballots in Savannah. The little old ladies counting had to go home and get some rest. Also ballots in Fulton.

All three of those places are good for him, so hopefully his lead grows.
As I said somewhere else, Perdue can still request a recount, even if he loses by more than .5%, but it won’t be automatic. Chances are, if it is close, there will be a recount, but that should just be a delay not change things.

There will be recounts. And on and on. The Retrumplicans won't be satisfied until election officials find the missing votes. This is how it's going to be from now on. They've thrown the whole system of elections in this country into chaos.

Hillary was correct. They are deplorable.

17,025 lead at 10:15. However, that is only a .4 lead so a recount will be automatic at this point.

There should be a recount in any case, a hand recount at that, just drive a stake in the demon's heart and be done with it.

Hillary was correct about a lot of things. She should have been President, not the floating fat man Harkonnen we have now. In fact SHE was the one from whom the election was stolen.

Oh, I'm definitely not the first one to think of it, but I did post about it here some months ago: [forums.macresource.com]
