I don't know what shocks me more - that the Democratic Party successfully

messaged vote by mail to such a degree that our votes were protected and counted or that the Republican Party walked away from the vote-by-mail advantage they have held for decades.

I never dreamed we would have such a huge advantage in mail-in voting.

Kudos to DNC, Biden Campaign and Media

for educating us AHEAD OF THE ELECTION on the red mirage. Had that phenomenon not been explained ahead of the vote, I believe that there would have been utter chaos, confusion and early calls for Trump.

Sometimes we don’t get our message out and sometimes the media just does not educate.

As it is, Trump is flailing in his messaging about the election being stolen. For once, the media did its job.

Joe needs to grab the narrative the second this race is called

Get his spokespeople on every network to start talking transition team immediately. Like Jim f’g Baker in 2000. He is the President-Elect. We’ve babied this MFr for too long. The TV people are still talking Trump 24/7.

Appreciation thread for Joe Biden

77 years old; buried 2 children, watched his older son die of brain cancer; played supporting roll to our first African American President; got lambasted by Kamala Harris for old stances on bussing; unified the Democratic Party; made amends with Kamala Harris; ran a national campaign in the midst of a pandemic and won against the most vile human being ever to hold office in the USA; had his and his family’s personal lives torn to pieces without ever losing his cool or stepping back from his family.

His best friend told him “Joe, you don’t have to do this.” Yes, he did. And yes he has.

I love you guys with all my heart

You’ve saved me from deep depression ever since GW days. But for once and for all can we learn to savor our victories? If we pull this off can we enjoy this? Can we build on this?

If we win this, Barr is gone
Steven Miller is gone
The Trump spawn are gone
The White House gets fumigated
Air and water regulations are back
We have the first female VP

I was 12 hours away from worrying about Trump’s mass arrests of his perceived enemies

We have the power of Presidency and the ARMY of bureaucrats that goes with that

We live to fight another day

Joe Biden appoints cabinet and trains a whole new generation of leaders

We just may have saved democracy

We have what we did not have YESTERDAY.

How come the pollsters were wrong but Nancy knew enough on Tuesday to say the House would be ready

Vote if there were a tie?

There is some sort of two-tiered polling system -one for us and one for insiders.

If we win this thing I'm not mourning our country

I can’t wait for Joe to lean in to trump and say “have I told you about my phenomenal EC victory?” And “did you see that popular vote? Some people say it was the greatest ever!”

I will tell every Bible thumping evangelical Trumpster I know that it was god’s will and when Joe went to church and prayed on Election Day, god showed his approval by rewarding him with a popular and EC win.

Just got polled by Marist in Florida

Very comprehensive
Age, religion, income, education, church-going status (including how often) suburban vs city or rural, who I voted for in 2016 and who I voted for now, Favorability of candidates for pres plus favorability of governor (DeSantis)

Gave all favorable to Dems and zero for republicans and Barrett

Landline poll. I only answered because it showed Marist on caller ID.

Our "underlevered" president who borrowed money as a "favor"

Isn’t that what money launderers do?

Isn’t “underlever” one glitch away from under water? Trump’s senility is making him very confessy.
