Sorry, I don't think Trump is wacko at all... compared to Reagan. Trump rambles, mutters but his points are actually pretty deep, you just have to listen very carefully. Hugely smarter than the media and his toddler-level message make him out to be.

DT projected 283
HRC projected 248

If current state of affairs holds up, it seals the deal for Trump presidency!!

Michigan will go Trump. Virginia was turned by two counties (Fairfax and Arlington, both where Indian presence is quite high).
Florida is probably Red.
North Carolina is Red. Colorado looked like it would go Red but is now called for the Blues. PA will go Blue -- there is a big difference.
Minnesota looked going Red but is now Blue. There might still be a twist in the night.

Remember Al Gore lost the election in the last hour. I wouldn't think this is DT's night yet.
Vina saar: Bernie is just soft in the head. He's an out and out commie. No love for India too.

If the odds are driven by bets placed with the system the the bookmaker makes money either ways. Most likely scenario.

OTOH, if the bookmaker is using his own judgment to *fix* the bets then it will be shafted.

Oh. He is intelligent, sharp and knows exactly what he is doing. That exactly is the problem. His dog whistle racism and baiting is simply unacceptable and also, he is a scamster, a bully and a creep.

Sure he can claim that he was a beneficiary of the "system" and that as an outsider he will fix it. But on that account, I would have preferred a genuine outsider with far higher ethical and moral standards , and which was Bernie Sanders.

A Bernie vs Trump fight was the election to have. It is AL GORE stupidity all again. Any credible OTHER than Al Gore would have won over GW and if that had happened, no Iraq war. But No, the Democrats had to put up the machine candidate Al Gore and lost the election . Same with Clinton.

And as we speak , CNN is calling North Carolina for DT. One more of Michigan /Wisconsin goes to DT, then sure HC is toast.

New Hampshire and Pennsylvania will be Blue.
Nevada is going Red.
Wisconsin is going to be amazingly close.

HRC is now teetering.

Trump can afford to lose New Hampshire, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania (34 total) and still win, based on his leads elsewhere, per the NYT predictor - if he continues to hold all the rest, he'll have 275 , more than the 272 he needs.

Almost forgot, came across Ms Harris at Sacramento a few days ago, right outside the Secy of State office. Not sure if she was campaigning, but I would not have known it was her because she definitely didn't look Indian in person. A co-worker pointed out that we have been working closely with her for 5 years and i had not a clue! hehe. Congratulations to her for being the first Indian American Senator! What an amazing day.

Suraj, perhaps Georgia will change the game? Who would have thought of such a situation!

NYT says Georgia is 5.2pts up for Trump with over 80% reporting. Atlanta could pull that back a little, but rural votes are estimated in his favor:

Look up any other state and the overall running projection too.

Coverage of Clinton HQ is quite sad. There was a pretty Indian girl up there in tears. Poignant for those that thought HRC would win.
Quite a few Injun bois looking to reach out and comfort that girl. (At the place I'm at!).

Sorry, I meant Georgia was never supposed to be a toss up! DT 228 and HRC 197. Whoa Nellie...

CNN calls Florida for DT. Wow! Tampa, Orlando, Miami-Dade, PalmBeach voted blue. The entire state other than these places voted Red.

This is a massive revolt of small town , rural and blue collar america against the metropolitan elites.

Florida just declared for Trump. Tally: Trump 222, Clinton 209

Very long faces in ABC studios, all of them were loud and full of it at the beginning of the count tonight, now talking about how 'America hates the idea of a woman president' etc.

Martha Raddatz going on about how Putin is happy but the rest of the world leaders are 'fearful'.

Most of these 'impartial' experts are all closet Clintonistas, now it is out in the open.

never mind it is all irrelevant now. Expect to hear all the usual 'every brown person needs to be afraid' rhetoric from here on, remember what they said when Modi Ji was elected?
