    Isn't white hispanic a thing? Or is that something different? I don't know, I'm just a cat

    It is yes. But white hispanics are not latinx. They’re European
    I thought Maya was challenging the Latino essence of Latinos who voted for Trump. I didn't realize American Cubans identify as white. Or at least a significant portion of American Cubans identify as white. Basically I thought she was saying that if you're Latinx and voting for Trump then you're a white person.

    NYT has Trumps lead in geogia down to 1900 with 11,000 remaining. Could flip within the next hour or so.

    I honestly kind of hope that they're too busy with dead-end nonsense court shit to really get up to ransacking the country for the lame duck session.

    But I also wonder if Trump going whole hog on corrupt shit in the waning moments might tank Republican prospects in the Georgia senate runoffs. Like, if he's not on the ballot do his crazed supporters still show up just to stick it to the libs? Probably. *sigh*

    My suspicion is he's going to spend most of it bitching about the results, trying to legaleze himself out of the hole he's dug and sulking about how he is in fact a loser.

    No, it has to do with the fact that you're done nothing but throw lies, blatant flasehoods, and downright dumb statements at us so far.

    Gotta say, as someone from Georgia doing the actual ground work here to flip things, it sucks seeing people from outside making Sherman's March jokes.

    The path you carry the burden on was burnilt by someone else.

    Knitting that some of these differences may just come down to votes from abroad.

    Yeah. It's a tiny little dance to be relevant.

    It is yes. But white hispanics are not latinx. They’re European

    Like, exclusively from European countries? Because, buddy–

    Like... generally yes. They’re primarily the descendants of the Spanish colonial ruling class.

    Just under 11,000. Biden needs 58%. He's been averaging close to 70%.

    CNN also saying Trump ahead by 42,142 in PA And still shrinking

    Watching PA count votes is like the end of Space Balls, if you stretched the end of Space Balls out over the course of 3 days. "She's gone from suck to blow!"

    per NBC as many as 8,900 overseas ballots possible in GA, but they have to arrive by tomorrow so we won't know the total for sure until then

    Allegedly a voice of reason.

    Georgia looks like it'll be done either way soon, and Arizona is moving right along.

    Pennsylvania's quantum remaining vote count means they'll be done some time between yesterday and the day the Morlocks move underground, but they could be rendered moot before that.

    Yep, their filler blends are just silky smooth so even a heavy Maduro wrapper doesn't overwhelm the flavor profile.

    PA going is the fat lady. If the vote in PA is done, and Biden wins, the only thing that can change things would be a WI recount finding ~300 times more votes to change than they have before.

    Not really. If Biden has Pennsylvania in the bag like everyone who would know keeps saying then he can lose Georgia and Arizona and still win with 279 EC votes. Winning Georgia and Arizona is technically just running up the score and protecting against ratfucking with baseless court challenges.

    Biden winning GA isn't the most important part of the GA election

    we're currently only 0.1% into runoff for the Senate as well

    I have a feeling that PA is going to be a battle even after the count is finished. Trump camp was planning on legal fuckery there from the start.

    Which, unfortunately, feels almost needed this year.
    Just over 270 feels rife for protracted legal battles.
    Over 300 feels kinda silly to challenge.

    The shift in the Census and various other official forms making Hispanic not a race but an ethnicity strikes me as attempting to 'whiten' hispanic/ latinx folks the same way the Irish and Italians were. Especially since there's been a long term effort by Republican elites who can read a trendline to try and make that happen, despite the efforts of the Nativist racism wing. I wouldn't be surprised if by 2030 or 2040 white becomes shifted to 'Caucasian / Hispanic'

    If Biden gets PA, he can lose in every other uncalled state and still win with 273.

    Yes. Though obviously nothing stops you from checking the box.

    The most obvious example is Cuban expats, IE people that fled Castro’s revolution. IE the people who ruled Cuba
