At last. All of the main US media organisations have now called the election for for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris – including Fox News. Pennsylvania with its 20 electorate votes went past the 0.5% to Biden and the lead shows no signs of reducing.
It appears that Arizona and Nevada are also being called the same way. With the Georgia also looking to fall to Biden as well, the electoral college vote looks to be over 300 – well above the 270 required.
Donald Trump, predictably, is starting to emulate the Hitler bunker where an ageing despot retreats into fantasy and starts calling for dead armies to rescue his dreams.

While I’m sure that are going to be continued attempts to try to prise changes in the courts, so far the legal mud being spread by the Republican lawyers is being rejected. It is likely to continue to be so. That is because in the US, mail-in and early votes are legal in the states that allow them. In the wake of Covid-19, that is now most states. The states are in charge of how they organise their elections, and the Federal government doesn’t really have much of a say in the hands-on organisation of the presidential election.
There is a run off of the two Senate seats in Georgia on January 5th that will determine the partisan control of the Senate.
I’m sure that some will view this as tasteless. However it pretty well covers my views on how I think that Donald Trump will handle his eviction.
Incidentally, it is good the USA has finally caught up with the rest of the civilised world and elected a female politician to the second highest office in their society. They will find that they should have done elected women to their higher offices a lot earlier.
She looks like a damn good backup as well.
