Movement in Pennsylvania numbers

UPDATE, 7:53 a.m. Pacific: New state figures show Trump now ahead 142,439. That's his smallest official lead in the election so far. New York Times showing lead at 135,671.

Original post:

The official Pennsylvania state website has Trump ahead 216,237 as they opened for business this morning. Alas, that increases his margin over the last report, and puts us back roughly where we were yesterday morning.

A tweet I just saw (an unofficial one) indicates that the new numbers are from Bucks County, which is swing country.

Meanwhile, The New York Times shows Trump with a lead of only 142,466, and that number was updated at about the same time as the state's.

I don't know what the reason for the discrepancy is, but either way, Joe needs a good day today in the cities of the Keystone State. If he wins Pennsylvania, he wins. If it loses, we continue to bite nails.


  1. How about the Detroit poll monitor who described 3 vehicles arriving in the wee hours of the morning with 130,000 more ballots in Michigan? The workers were surprised when they realized all 130,000 were for Joe Biden. This thing is rigged. It's taken a long time because they want to make sure they have enough votes.

    1. Chicago 1960. Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear.

    2. So Trump does well in Texas, Ohio and Florida and the Congressional races are surprisingly red as well. It looks like the only place the blue wave really hit is early in the morning in Wisconsin and Michigan. Hmm...
      Yes, we've seen versions of this before, but unlike in 1960 the news of what happened was not being censored by big media oligarchs doing an impression of a police state.
