For all the work done to GOTV and oust hIM

in spite of unprecedented turnout it’s the 11th hour and the media is ramping up to downplay a Democratic victory.

After Kimmel tonight I didn’t turn from ABC fast enough and the next thing I knew I was hearing Nightline’s “story” on Pennsylvania students who apparently are now the election equivalent of Groundhog Day. Their mock 2016 election led to predictions that Hillary would lose. This year’s mock had Biden winning but by a super-slim margin.

That was followed on by a story on the unprecedented number of women of color running for congressional office –- the majority featured were black or Hispanic Republicans.

I suppose it’s a story but in 2016 many women and people of color also ran and people are turning out in droves to vote. The media focus is as narrow as the zoomed in camera angles that make it seem like he has an overwhelming crowd at Trump super spreader events.

1. Who are these "students"...?

High-schoolers? College students? I ask because it would seem that such a group would almost necessarily be made up of entirely new individuals after four years. The only way that wouldn't be the case is if they polled an entire K-12...which would still have substantial turnover, and which would raise the issue of just who the younger students were voting for in the first place.
