DeSantis had a 83,000 vote lead over Gillum for Florida governor late Tuesday night. That lead dropped to 45,000 yesterday. Now we hear the lead is down to just 15,000 and a mandatory recount is going to be initiated. There are also still thousands of votes in Broward county that have not been counted yet and Broward is a very blue county.

In the Florida senate race, Rick Scott lead Bill Nelson by 60,000 Tuesday night. It dropped to 34,000 yesterday and it just under 22,000 a few hours ago. Again, a recount will be initiated and there are still thousands of votes left to be counted in Broward county.

House progress so far

Democrats – 225
Republicans – 199
Undecided - 11

31 blue pick up so far, Democrats are probably going to pick up either 37 or 38 house seats once all counting is done from what I've read.

Since I use to live in broward county when I lived in Florida I can tell you that some crazy gerrymandering crap is going on down there.  Since I still have family in the state, my brother was telling me how a lot of the public poll locations changed this year to gated communities.  In order to vote, you had to show your ID at the gate and in a few of them you had to leave your ID at the gate in order to enter.  Also locations that use to be easy for people to get to were changed so that you have to travel much farther to get to the polling station.

There's going to be a lot of people looking around down there. They've had a ton of fraud and corruption in the past few years as well as being the home to the infamous "hanging chads" of 2000.



One thing to know about the popular vote is that California takes forever to count since tons of ballots arrive in the mail after election day. Right now, Dems lead the GOP in the House by 4.3 points. Once CA's votes are counted, it should be close to, if not higher than, the GOP's 6.8-point margin in the 2010 wave. If not for gerrymandering in Ohio, North Carolina, Michigan, etc. the Dems would have at least a few extra seats, but popular vote-wise, it's safe to say this'll count as a D wave.

And damn it, I hit the wrong button in the poll. Oh well.

Saw that too.  Crazy what some elections supervisors are trying to get away with.

More breaking news.....70,000 standard ballots are still to be counted in Broward (plus the aforementioned provisional, absentee and mail in ballots).  If they align with the voting ratio of the known ballots, Florida just flipped both senate and governors seats.

That's not gerrymandering btw, gerrymandering is drawing the district lines to favor one party over the other (grouping democrats together into 1 congressional district, rest being republican). What you have right there is classic case of voter suppression. Trying to make voting as hard as possible for those who oppose you.

Just added up the two-party vote in NC house races:

D: 50.7%, 3 seats
R 49.3%, 10 seats

That's 3 to 5 seats that would've gone to the Dems in a fairly-drawn map.

Note: 1 R seat was uncontested, so I used the vote from the most Republican district as a proxy.



Looks like Republicans are doing pretty well. Glad democrats won't be able to raise taxes or increase regulation. Trump can still pass some executive orders.



Dems showing their colors and talking about gun bans again. Please keep bringing up "assault weapon" ban between now and 2020 lmao. We will be back to single party control of all 3 branches.

Sad because I'm actually pretty open minded and live and let live and non religious but have to identify as conservative solely because I will never yield on my views that:

individual liberty > the whole (this is what USA was uniquely founded upon)

exclusive rights to the fruits of my own labor (stop stealing from me to play Santa Clause to the 3rd world) , and

gun rights and economic freedom (stop telling me what I can or can't own and constantly trying to ban everything as your only solution).

That's it.  These are the only reason I call myself conservative.

So many other liberal views I support, but if you can't give me those specific things your candidates will never have my vote and you risk a modern technology civil war the day you do attempt to take those away.

I can agree with liberal views on so many things but you can't give me these small things, and they say conservatives are closed minded lol.

Agree with a liberal on everything but then tell them you want a full automatic post 1986 AR in return even if it means being subject to extensive checks and registration, and watch the party of compromise and open mindedness close up and go full crazy.
