Please help me calm down.

I donít post much, but I have been around for a while. Iím having PTSD from 2016. My wine isnít going to help. It is all I have, though. I know it is early. But, Iím terrified that Trump will somehow pull this off.

4. Trump needs to fend off losing any of GA, FL, TX, NC, OH, IA and AZ.

If he loses any one of those, Biden is in great shape. Biden still has lots of paths, while Trump needs to win every single one of them.

6. A lot of posters are intent on being FIRST and not necessarily ACCURATE so don't assume

until you see multiple confirmations.

That's about the best I can say. I too am very anxious.

30. Be strong, the blue wall will hold.

Biden's campaign feels very good about the Midwest and feels they can win one or more of the red swing states (AZ, GA, NC).

We're doing much better in many counties than Hillary did in many states. VA was caled very quickly for us whereas it took long last time. There is improvement in most counties aside from Miami which is unique (Cubans).

52. Remember that in 2016, Secretary Clinton was "winning" until the final hour. Even right wing

nutrider Charles Krauthammer said it was "over" and Trump lost the night of Nov. 3, 2016. This could, and probably will be the same sort of night -- but with the parties reversed. OH, PA, NC!!!
