This sloppiness creates a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach:
These two results obviously cannot simultaneously be accurate, yet they are being reported in the same exit poll with an identical sample.
Salt in hand, we soldier on. Interestingly, Republicans express more confidence in the integrity of the vote count than Democrats do:
When things don’t go their way, voters will find fault whatever party they’re from. Baseline trust is lower for Democrats, though, and even the 2020 presidential election and subsequent fallout from it hasn’t been enough to reorder that.
A majority of Georgia voters think abortion should be legal. The Bible Belt has broken.
The GOP’s relatively strong showing among Hispanics in November does not appear to have been a fluke. The Georgia exit poll shows Democrats winning them by a modest margin, 52%-43%.
About the broken Bible Belt, 1-in-14 Georgian voters are LGBTQ.
The ultra rich are firmly Democrat. Even in this southern state, Democrats beat Republicans 60%-39% among those earning more than $200,000 a year. Republicans won those earning between $50,000 and $200,000. Democrats won those making less than $50,000 annually. The top and the bottom against the middle, part CXXVIII.
Will the Biden administration double down on the Covid lockdowns or will it ride the vaccine and seasonality waves into the Spring, claiming victory and coming home by summer? The former is more likely:
Chin up, conservatives. The dollar is getting clobbered by the yuan, down 10% since May with nothing but air below. Commodity prices, real and virtual, are spiking. The consumer price increases that must come are coming. And the Democrats get to own it all. The country, you ask? Terminal. A different electoral outcome here wouldn’t have changed that. No electoral outcome can and no electoral outcome will.
