This is a poll only, so it's anonymous just liking voting. Just curious about the forum.

There was no option "I am not a US citizen and I would vote Green Party."

By the looks of this very scientific poll, Joe Biden should be getting 85% of the vote come November 3rd. If only...

It is highly scientific, with a margin of error of only +/- 40%

If I'm looking at the electoral map correctly, if all the leaning blue/red states go to each respective candidate, Biden gets exactly the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

Well, 306-232 now seems like the most likely result, barring a court challenge or faithless electors.

It’s hard to see any court challenges going through, they’ve been denied pretty consistently so far, as there really seems to be no evidence of any misconduct or anything. I will say that there will probably be at least a recount in Georgia, which is probably a good idea with only about 1000 separating them right now.

All media outlets are calling it now. Joe Biden has been elected as the 46th president of the United States.

Van Jones had a very emotional response on CNN, and I encourage people to find it and watch it.

Just like to say the poll was correct and within the margin of error. See you in four years.

To point out something that would be a tedious detail any other year, the electors have formally voted Biden in.

Man, my name is just always sitting here on the forum board index, associated with this thread. Since I made that last post, the 45th President incited a riot on January 6th to overthrow the new U.S. administration. Between that, fostering a culture of denial and idiocy regarding the fight against Covid, making his political name in the first place picking on a Black president and acting like Barack Obama wasn't born here, and in the last 24 hours keeping the racist hits coming** (and I'm still only listing a handful of offenses), I admit that when he finally keels over some day after trying to eat McDonald's out of business, I do have a punk rock song in mind for the occasion, similar to how people had a song in mind when Margaret Thatcher passed away...
