14. Don't give up!

Peters is likely to pull it out in MI. Last I heard he was only down a few thousand, with hundreds of thousands of blue leaning votes to count.

Collins might lose in Maine. She's currently at 49.5%. The vote count stopped with 66%, so her percentage could go down. They do ranked choice voting. If a big percentage of the third party voters don't have her as second choice, there's a chance. The Dem Gideon plus the greenish independent candidate together equal 48%, with other third party candidates making up the last 2 and a half percent.

Does anyone know what the remaining Maine votes are like? If Collins only goes down a percentage point or so, I see that as being doable for Gideon, assuming the vast majority of third party votes break for her.

Then there's Georgia. Purdue's lead has been shrinking. He's only at 50.8% now, with the remaining votes supposed to be leaning blue. I think he'll get below 50%, which means a runoff. The other Georgia race is already going to a runoff.

So if Peters pulls it out, and the Dems win both Georgia races in the runoff two months from now, that would be a tie in the Senate. if Collins loses, that sure would help. Technically, there's still a chance the Dems could get to 51.
