I can also count.

 

 

 

Clinton now has 190 votes vs Trump 172 votes. But that doesn't mean anything, as she was already projected to win those.

Wow, I expected it to be over by now honestly (in favour of Clinton). Considering what he needed to be done, his next tasks should be to buy an Americas cup boat and race Team NZ.

Paul1977:

 

If Trump holds the leads in Wisconsin, Michigan, and North Carolina; then I think that will give him the needed 270 votes. If two of them swung to Clinton, and she wins pretty much all the western states that haven't released any results yet then she could still get it.

 

The longer it goes on the less likely it seems that America will be celebrating it's first female president any time soon.

 

 

 

 

I agree.  N.C has 90% counted, Trump ahead by >4 points - so that one's very unlikely to change.

 

Wisconsin and Michigan, still a long way to go with the count.

I guess the time is approaching to enjoy a rich meal of crow. I still hope Clinton can flip it, but I don't believe in that any longer. I wish I detested Trump a little less. I wish I had followed my naughty impulse yesterday and placed a bet on his victory. What must the odds have been?

 

As much as I cannot stand Trump and everything he says and seems to represent, if I am honest I have to say that what he has achieved is very cool and I (very reluctantly) have to give him credit for that. He has done something no-one thought possible. Not just the election result, but the way he went about it. He has turned everything on its head. He has broken every rule there is at contesting elections. He has done everything you are not supposed to do and still come up smelling roses. He has, quite literally, changed the world forever. We will never be the same. America will never be the same. Politics will never be the same. We have entered a new era. 

 

This is not to say that I think Trump has done a good thing, but he has certainly done something significant, and that cannot be ignored. I hope the world can survive him. I fear it may not.

 

If nothing else, this is one hell of an exciting election. A real cliffhanger like nothing that has gone before. I feel like I am living through history in the making. It is like being in Pearl Harbour on the morning the Japanese attacked. I guess we should all feel privileged in some weird way. When your grandchildren ask what life was like before they lived in caves, you can tell them you were there at the moment the world ended.

Good points. Another way to look a it is that the republicans could have had a big win, and if they win, he almost blew a landslide. I see it as a Republican victory (if they win) DESPITE Trump

But at the end if the day will he govern with his dumba$s ideas, or will the GOP tone it down big league. Or bigly if you prefer

  It is interesting how much the US media are still saying it could go either way, and may come down to single state.

 

 

 

It is amazing in the US how in some states you can vote, and then later change your vote later. Also people can campaign during the voting.  NZs system just sounds so much better, albeit a bit Draconian . I wonder how it would have fared if the FBI stuff hadn't come out last week.

At least there's a bright side - we don't have to move to NZ to avoid living in the Trump Empire.

I think they're still keen on retaining viewers/readers.

 

My quick count, the minimum Trump will get is 275.  Not much doubt now that he will be the next president.

I've always said that Americans are just mad enough to vote Trumpy in. Hell, they voted the shrub in twice and look what an idiot he was.

Maybe it will push up house prices as people move to NZ. Oh wait, that has already happened.

Ever hopeful?

Anyone else see the similarities with Brexit here? Rise of the working man in outrage at the way the "elite" have been treating their concerns... not always the result they want (or in this case the candidate they need) but flipping the bird to the big guy is still the goal!
