The election that broke the Republican Party
Never has the unprecedented been so utterly predictable. At the conclusion of a campaign that exceeded their expectations in almost every sense — picking up House seats, thwarting an outright Democratic takeover of the Senate, running competitively in every presidential battleground state — Republicans could have walked away from 2020 with some dignity intact. They could have conceded defeat to Joe Biden, celebrated their hard-fought successes ...

Biden took the lead in Georgia this morning. Here's what else you need to know
Democratic hopeful Joe Biden has taken the lead in Georgia over President Trump. Trump cannot afford to lose Georgia's 16 electoral votes if he is to keep alive his hopes of a second term.

Ballots are still being counted in several key states, with elections officials expec ...

He may fire a few Cabinet members and top aides, including FBI ...

What if he doesn't concede? The US presidential tradition explained.
When a candidate loses a U.S. presidential election, tradition holds the candidate promptly and publicly acknowledges defeat in a concession speech to help with the peaceful transition of power. The speeches, while difficult for a candidate, are typically gracious celebrations of American democracy. The Chicago Tribune and Arizona Republic opinion columns have held up John McCain's concession to Barack Obama in 2008 as an example of the tradi ...

The MAGA bullhorn shouts Trump's baseless claims of fraud
On Tuesday afternoon, the MAGA internet was quiet at best, bitter at worst. By Wednesday, it was crowing and chest-thumping about voter fraud and the establishment’s destruction, flooding social media with viral — and incorrect — accusations of electoral theft. What started as a day of uncharacteristic restraint for President Donald Trump’s supporters on Tuesday quickly turned into a round of “I told you so” admonishments as it became clear ...

What happens if no presidential candidate receives 270 electoral votes?
A tie in the 2020 presidential election would create the “messiest” possible Electoral College scenario — with the House of Representatives tasked with deciding the winner, according to experts. In the unlikely event that President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden become locked in a 269-269 tie, the House will break it, with each state delegation getting one vote, according to 270 to Win, a nonpartisan political website that projects ...

Race to 270 is a nail-biter
Nebraska and Maine are the only two states that apportion some of their electoral votes based on how each congressional district votes. That means that while four of Nebraska's five electoral votes heavily favor the GOP, one of them — awarded to the presidential candidate that wins the Omaha-based 2nd District — is in play. (So is Maine's 2nd district, which is more competitive than the Democratic-leaning state overall.) Both the Biden and Tr ...
