    Funny to think that the probability of winning moves around that much

    I think at one point Nate was trying to explain that his model was being too aggressive. Yeah.

    but overall Dems did, as they were never supposed to be that close, let alone flipping other seats.

    Yeah, looks like Beto has pulled through quite a few down-ticket wins.

    The Washington Post's graphics give a good idea of what's going on with the House. Dem pickups emerging, but hell, I hope they get there.

    They may not have been official feeds – at least I was getting 'video unavailable'.

    Yeah, the pirate MSNBC one got yanked, but it was easy enough to find another one. It's very lively, but the ads get a bit wearying.

    The Washington Post live stream. Interesting seeing how newspapers, with their smaller budgets and lack of broadcast experience, do it.

    Widespread reports of voting machine failure in New York. Probably not evil, given that it's New York, just fucking hopeless.

    The whole American ingrained attitude to voting just… astounds and saddens me. We’re the greatest democracy in the world! But generally we do not give a shit about voter suppression!

    The NYT had a story recently in which certain academics and economists were happy to say that lots of people voting wasn't necessarily a good thing. It's staggering that it's actually considered respectable to argue that.

    It hasn't taken long for voting systems to start failing.

    The NYT cites problems in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Arizona. And that's not even counting polling places where there are simply far too few machines to meet predictable demand.
