  1. Since when does the news decides who won ??

    • @Jedi CRI Those votes that “magically appeared” were the early mail-in votes that some Republican governed state administrations wouldn’t allow to be counted until after the election day votes were counted. Those votes were overwhelmingly for Biden, as Trump voters voted on election day just like Trump wanted.

    • @Paul Y Counting stopped for all these remaining States when it became clear Biden was losing big time in all these. Hours later, these ballots suddenly appear that happen to be all for Biden, which conveniently enough, were enough to make up the huge deficit for all these States.

    • Counting should not have stopped.

    • @Jedi CRI Trump wanted the counting to stop on election night when he still had leads showing for PA, MI and WI because he knew that the mail-in votes were mostly for Biden. Counting for the most part did not stop except to let workers sleep.
      PA, AZ and GA have Republican governed state administrations. Do you think these Republicans would be trying to help Biden win?

    • @Jedi CRI Counting wasn’t stopped when trump was leading, they count all ballots even if its a landslide. Again as everyone has told you it is rather logically that when counting mail in ballots after the in person votes that these would heavily crew Biden. You don’t seem to understand how statistics work… Votes do not come in evenly…. and of course adding in that democrats are far more likely to have avoided in person voting while republicans continue to downplay covid and the effective safety measures.

  2. Somehow Biden got more support than Obama did in his landslide victory of 2008

  3. Wait til the next one here in Canada when Trudeau opts to use mail in ballots

    • He already illegality stole the election by changing the voting zones.

    • @XcessiveZ Voice to text has told my Old Mum to [deleted… deleted] too many times… Pressed SEND, OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!
      and I am not careful enough to check the robot for [deleted] stupid mistakes. And too, using my fingnres to tpye. I try to understand when I am told[deleted] in this format of communications……

    • @Jay Nguyen I feel like even if the cases do go forward, legal battles take years, Biden will probably be out of office by the time anything gets anywhere close to being resolved. My guess is they’ll just try and tie him up in legal battles forever

  4. I’m just here to read the salty comments

  5. “If you don’t like it, then leave”
    Sound familiar don’t it 😉

      your turn to have a hell 4 years if he really win, but the republican supreme court will decide who is president.

    • Genevieve DeMamiel | November 7, 2020 at 2:05 PM | Reply

      @Antonio Armanio what a disgusting human being you must be. We’re ALL American. You don’t need to fight anyone. I’m a republican and I certainly won’t be fighting any democrats. As long as the president represents all Americans, I don’t care what party he’s a part of. Stop with the divisive rhetoric.

    • Yes and you stayed. I will fight for my country will you?

  7. Love how they were so concerned about Russian interference last time but now they want to claim victory when there are actual issues coming out lol what a sham!

      Cry harder.

    • The same can be said of them being so firm on stopping the count in Pennsylvania and keeping the count going in Arizona. Besides what “actual issues” are coming out? In Pennsylvania every county count was VIDEOED for the entirety of the counting. And GOP observers in many states were using their phone cameras as well to try and get fraud. If there was any TRUE FRAUD the video would have been released already. And produced death threats for an election employee in Pennsylvania like it did for one in Georgia who’s had to go into hiding for only doing his job AND DOING IT CORRECTLY. You are toooo funny in your priorities. LOL!

    • @dq Smith ya the were videoed throwing ballets in the garbage…

    • All of the court challenges will be thrown out because they are baseless without evidence. Court challenges in Michigan and Georgia have already been thrown out.

    • Funny how trump supporters can be such hypocrites and total MORONS and accuse Biden of cheating when trump did the exact same thing against Hillary except the only difference is trumps actually been PROVEN TO HAVE DONE IT.

  8. Being Canadian I’m baffled by how many Americans don’t understand their own electoral college. It’s a PROJECTED win not because Biden hasn’t won yet but because electors who are in the electoral seats have not voted yet. On rare cases there are faithless electors who do not vote for who they promised to vote for. Basically your ballot only votes for a representative who will vote in your favor.

    FYI the AP do not decide election winners…

  10. this is a lie

  11. “Of course these are all projections” haha

  12. Now we got this wrapped up, where do we stand on the WE charity scandal?

    • Sorry news outlets will find a different headline and continue to not cover any scandal Trudummy is involved in…he is after all paying them.

    • @Late To The Party They wanted an investigation team for it. Trudeau threatened with a snap election due to lack of confidence, and everyone backed down. The NDP sided with the Liberals a second time on this issue to save them.
      It’s over.

    • Let Trump with his undocumented taxes pay for those. Call it even.👍

    • Torxit It’s not even close to Trump. It’s more like what typical politician do. I have heard many Canadians go on a rant about Trudeau and in the same breath claim that Trump is much better. WTF do they know if they are that ignorant on the topic? I don’t want to be in that ignorant group.

    • @Gord Thor Trump had over 60 million dollars spent in investigating him to turn up with nothing. Trudeau doesn’t get investigated, because he can stop it in parliament. There is a difference if you are comparing the two.

  13. If you believe this I have some ocean front property in the desert for sale

  14. And thus begins the American Civil War 2, Electric Boogaloo.

    Calling a winner are you? Classic

    • If trump can do it with 4% of the ballots still uncounted then Biden can do so with fewer than 1%
      All is fair in love and war

  16. The election isn’t over yet

    The amount of dislikes on a liberal channel tell you something ain’t right.

    So you honestly want me to believe that an oil state voted overwhelmingly in favour of the guy who wants to fire them all? Ok, ok, cool beans.

  19. I wish our lives get better, but somehow i think something more sinister is in the making

    When you have to cheat to win, you didn’t really win anything. In fact you’re worse than a loser.
