Re: POTUS-DONALD TRUMP-and U.S. Politics catch-all

I read that 4 years ago, more than 5,500 military personal posted abroad voted in Georgia. Their votes could be significant this time. Polls say military staff abroad is split 50/50 between Trump and Biden though. Pennsylvania is the only way we can end the suspens before many weeks. I only half he...

https://results.enr.clarityelections.com/GA/105369/web.264614/#/summary - Trump has very narrowly won georgia. 100% everything in. Won by 18k votes. I expect it to be contested because when it's that narrow, you really should if you're the opposition. Those are the same numbers that all the other s...

Georgia could even go this year, according to 538 most of the remaining ballots are all in areas surrounding Atlanta.

I bet $20 on it. That's why.
