    Trump will win if he can get the Supreme Court to rule that votes for Biden shouldn't count.

    He really missed a trick not getting Kanye to change his name to Joe Byden for the day.

    I think it will be a very close race. The immediate result will be challenged by the losing Party and until the courts certify a winner (early December), we won't have a final result.

    The President is not actually picked by national popular vote but rather by State delegates to the Electoral College. If you win the State, you get all of their delegates to vote for you at the Electoral College. Large population States have many more delegates than the smaller ones. That is why certain States are "key" in any election.

    Quotes from around the country:

    “The vote-counting happening now is…. exactly what we knew and reported would happen. This is legitimate vote-counting, of ballots that were returned before or on Election Day.” — Scott Detrow, NPR

    “This is an extremely flammable situation and the president just threw a match into it,” Chris Wallace said on Fox News, after Trump’s remarks. “He hasn’t won these states.

    “Donald Trump called it a ‘fraud’ to continue to count votes. This does not sound like a democracy.” — Olivia Nuzzi, New York Magazine

    “What Trump did tonight is shocking, even though he’s been telegraphing this for some time. He’s primed his supporters to believe any result that doesn’t involve him winning is fraud.” — Rosie Gray, BuzzFeed News

    “Trump may indeed win. But he certainly hasn’t yet. And, he doesn’t get to say that your vote shouldn’t be counted.” — S.E. Cupp, CNN

    “Every single serious analysis I read of this election said that it would be long and drawn out, and that Trump would try to steal the election by trying to discount late-arriving Biden votes. And now that it’s happening…everyone seems shocked.” — Anne Applebaum, The Atlantic

    “Incredible how competitive Trump is with 230K+ covid deaths and kids being locked in cages and everything else. Even if Biden wins he will have to govern in a Trump country. This is who America is.” — Gabriel Sherman, Vanity Fair

    “In any normal presidential democracy, this would not be a close election right now. It is only close because of our strange Electoral College.” — Lee Drutman, New America think tank

    “A key question moving forward is whether public opinion polling is irreparably broken or if polling is just broken in elections with Trump on the ballot.” — Nathan Gonzales of Inside Elections.

    “Biden POTUS with GOP Senate is a recipe for a horrifically nasty politics next year.” — Matt Glassman, Georgetown political scientist

    “Democrats had hoped for a massive, unequivocal repudiation of Donald Trump for his mishandling of the pandemic, his raging White House incompetence, and his disdain for the rule of law. Instead, there was the sobering message that Trump’s support in key states like Florida was, in truth, greater than the polls had predicted.” — Walter Shapiro of The New Republic.

    The electorate would have picked it up because Kanye doesn't need his wife behind him telling him what to say

    The BBC is too busy dealing with the fallout from the lies it told the Spencer family to get the Diana Panorama interview which led to her divorce and ultimately her death

    The BBC - a world class broadcasting organisation of which Britain can be proud

    Chuffed with that. Couldn't happen to a nicer chap.

    Serves him right going over to the States and trying to interfere on Trump's behalf.

    I hope his 10 grand is straight out of his MEP's pension from Brussels.

    During our Lisbon Treaty referendum, he was over here constantly on the TV telling us how to vote. He has never even been elected as an MP and he thinks he's qualified in telling others how they should vote.

    He is welcome to Trump and vice versa.

    He’ll comfortably make that back selling platinum memberships for Reform UK to the same ****s who paid a ton a month to be a member of The Brexit Party.

    If he was a man of principle, he should hand back his MEP pension to the E.U. in view of the fact he hated what the E.U. stands for. That's what a principled man would do. Will Farage do that? No chance.
