Looks like one race has been won by the Democrats, it's been projected in some places now. Looks like I'll have to leave it here for tonight.

Any votes after this point are going to overwhelmingly favor democrats since Trump and his voter base banked on in person voting. The fact that BOTH democratic candidates are ahead means republicans are screwed. But hey, maybe god will gibe them a miracle like they want to believe.

That sounds like Qanon
They believe that Pence and state electors will overturn the election

But the qanon also told the Trump base to NOT vote and make a statement towards the disloyal GOP
It’s almost unsurprising that the Georgia elections turned out this way

About what I expected, congrats to the Dems, well played.

I hear the Republican governor of Georgia is also running for re-election in 2022. Watch out for him suddenly re-considering his stance on mail-in voting before then.

Now the only question is whether Perdue or Loeffer have an appetite for destruction and will go with trumps fraud allegations or have some dignity and accept defeat. TBT the GOP losing both seats is what trump wanted all along, to pressure the gop on supporting him on his conspiracy theories.

I expected Warnock but not Ossoff, that one is the real surprise.

Well loeffler can’t do much right now since she is outside recount territory. Purdue could request one if the counting ended right now but will likely lose that advantage soon.

Surprised that they haven’t called for ossoff yet. It primarily democratic strongholds that are left to be counted and he is in the lead by a good 17k

Democrats winning in Georgia was a surprise, but a welcome one all the same.

Please, Trumpers, humor us all and tell us why the protesters were not gassed or shot with rubber balls?

Those guys were not black, that's why.

That help of course, but the lenience (when not even cooperation) of the cops for left protestors has been obvious for a long time.

If it was armed leftist that stormed the Capitol, I'm sure they would have been shot dead by now.

At one point does this become high treason?

Nah going by the last year if it was left wing protestors they would have set the building on fire and the media would be falling over themselves to say it was mostly peaceful.

Crazy that Trump still hasn't told them to go home. Does he really believe he can get away with inciting such action by his fans?

Did you noticed than you didn't denied than the cops would act differently if it was leftl wing protestors instead of right wing one but try to deflect the point.
