:rotflmao: Thanks, Kate. I needed that after accidentally leaving my YouTube on the setting where it automatically plays the "next" video. I ended up seeing a video of The Menace sitting next to a smiling Paul Fucking Ryan. Or should I say the Fucking Paul Ryan? Between the two I don't know which one disgusts me the most.

Kate, I desperately needed that. I haven't laughed since 'that' night but howled with that. The comments are even better than the article itself. :kiss:

HRC declared winner in NH. I swear, every single thing Donald said was projection, if he said it was rigged they should be looking in MI & WI & PA to see if the system was hacked and where are the absentee and provisional ballots! (I know, it's over, but something still seems off with the results and it was so close.)

Hillary Clinton Democratic Party
48% 348,521

Donald Trump Republican Party
47% 345,789

It’s official: New Hampshire goes to Hillary Clinton

So the new RWNJ counter-argument to Clinton winning the popular vote is that SHE DIDN'T! She only won the popular vote of the votes that were counted. I have no idea if it's true but the claim is "If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.“

Anybody know for sure if there will potentially be uncounted ballots or is every one counted regardless?

"If the number of outstanding absentee ballots wouldn’t influence the election results, then the absentee ballots aren’t counted.“

If they didn't need to be, why are so many states and counties spending time and money still counting them? Sounds pretty bogus, but that's not definitive.

How would that even work? My absentee ballot had around 50 different races, propositions, and measures on it. The ballot is put into a card reader and it counts all the different votes on it. Do they think that because HRC won the California vote by a large margin, after spending months programming, testing, and certifying the vote counting equipment, that they'd suddenly modify the program to not count the votes for president, and other races where the outcome wasn't in question?

The HuffPo article linked to a list of the uncounted ballots in California county by county. They could not finish counting absentee ballots until today because the law says absentee ballots will be counted if they arrived with the first 3 days after election day if postmarked before the close of election day. Because of the holiday, the deadline was extended. There were more than a million absentee/provisional ballots uncounted in Los Angeles County alone and a proportionately large number in SF. Those two counties went for Hillary in the 80% + range. That is why the projection was what it was.

I tried in vain yesterday to find an update on the SoS website. I don't know what the problem is with that. But the counting will continue. Nothing is official until all the votes are counted.

New York Times
The Not-So-Silent White Majority ...

For many analysts and Democratic operatives, Obama’s two victories in 2008 and 2012 marked the final collapse of the conservative coalition. Even the Republican Party in 2013, notably in the so-called Autopsy Report produced by Reince Priebus — soon to be Trump’s chief of staff — acknowledged that a white-dominated conservative alliance was doomed to defeat unless the party opened its doors in general and to Hispanics in particular.

Which brings us to 2016.

On one level, demographic change was moving in Clinton’s direction. The overall white share of the electorate, which was 91 percent in 1960, continued to decline, falling to 72 percent in 2012 and 70 percent in 2016.

How, then, is it possible that this supposedly fading constituency played such a decisive role in 2016?

Two reasons.

First, while Trump barely improved on Romney’s margin among whites generally, the whites who did vote for Trump were significantly different from those who voted for Romney. Trump won non-college whites by 14 points more than Romney, a modern day record. Just as important, the working class voters Trump carried by such huge margins were heavily concentrated in the rust belt states of Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and Pennsylvania — all states carried by Obama in 2012 and lost by Clinton in 2016. Together, these state cast 70 Electoral College votes.

Trump’s voters were situated in a way that allowed them to exercise far more influence on the outcome in the Electoral College than their overall numbers would suggest, allowing Trump to sweep across the rust belt to victory.

Clinton has now passed the 2 million vote mark as her majority win over Trump increases. The margin is expected to grow larger as the votes continue to be counted.

The article also mentions some questionable results in counties that used electronic only voting. They happened to be in states that flipped unexpectedly and the results do not appear in sync with other counties that used paper ballots. :cry: :cry: :? :crying

ETA:
As of Wednesday morning, an estimated 1,797,333 unprocessed ballots remained in California from the Nov. 8 General Election.

Santa Clara County/San Jose is having to do hand recounts in TEN close races.

Interesting but not surprising in Berkeley, Jill Stein got more votes than Trump. :lol:
