Which states are most interesting to you regarding the election?

Asked by JLeslie (61727points) October 31st, 2020 from iPhone

Can be the vote for president or a local election.

I think it’s fascinating Texas and Georgia might be moving into purple territory. Arizona also.

I live in Florida so I’ll be watching that like the rest of the nation, but Florida is purple for many years now.

Also, I want to see Lindsey Graham lose. I’ll be tuned into that.

I really like the Democrat running against Mitch McConnell, Amy McGrath. Can you imagine? I don’t think she will win, but I hope it’s at least closer than anyone could imagine.

I haven’t been following that closely.

My friend’s husband is glued to the TV 24/7 and gets very frustrated and crazy with the news. My stepfather used to be like that. I’m not sure if he still is. I don’t have the time, energy or temperament for that.

I LOVE Amy McGrath! I really hope she wins, but probably not. So I’ll be watching Kentucky for that race. I hope Lindsey Graham gets booted out, and it looks like he will, so I’ll be watching that one. I think Florida will be my main focus, though.

Interesting is not the right word. Counting mail-in/absentee ballots cannot be done on election day. Trump will declare victory on Tuesday night. When the actual counts from places like Philadelphia and Milwaukee prove him wrong, conservatives will believe Trump’s deceitful claims of fraud.

As a resident of the swing state of Pennsylvania, I am interested in seeing how the presidential votes go in the state.

I will also be following the senatorial election in South Carolina, which the polls say is a tossup. I would so like to see Lindsey Graham lose to Jaimie Harrison.

@Call_Me_Jay I haven’t kept up with the different scenarios regarding whether PA and WI are crucial if he already wins Florida? I feel very sure Florida will know the result Election Night, unless it is so close that they have to wait for mail-in ballots from outside the country, or it is so close an automatic recount is triggered. Even if an automatic recount is triggered, I think we will still know what the first count produced. Florida is already over 60% counted, and my guess is they are counting even today, Saturday.

Michigan, Pennsylvania, Florida.

The rust belt. I have big worries that the Dems intend to abandon those states, and the working-class vote along with it to chase conservative moms and the elderly in the suburbs as a long-term strategy. It could have really nasty right-wing populist ramifications down the road. Right wing populism has lead to VERY BAD things in history.

Georgia. And not just because I live here.

If you would have told me a year ago that (a) the democratic candidate had a chance of winning the presidential vote here, and (b) we might have one (and possibly two) democratic senators in 2020, I would have told you that you were on drugs.

But it’s well with in the range of possibility. Fascinating.
