    Does Cruz have Texas so?

    Florida races have tightened right up. Dems ahead by less than 1% now with 82% counted. Squeaky bum time.

    Beto O'Rourke currently at 58% with 13% of votes in. Still very early, but that's great going for O'Rourke!

    Watching MSNBC link posted above, find it nearly as bad as Fox except on the other side. Some good hosts but the likes of Maddow are up there with Hannity. You always have to take their comments with a grain of salt, obviously she is smart and not sinister as Sean but cannot help herself.

    Anytime I plan to go to sleep, Florida decides to throw sh*t square at the fan.

    They're tied now.

    13% of the Texas vote in...Beto O'Rourke leads 58.5% to 40.9%!

    Good signs, but still far too early to call.

    Ludicrous statement.

    You have to be a special kind of awful to support Cruz, not one endearing characteristic but it is Texas so he is still favourite.

    How can I go to bed now?!?!

    Maybe... I'll wait till they call Florida.

    Still loads of votes to be counted in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Daid. Not quite done yet


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,029 ✭✭✭hill16bhoy


    Both Republicans in front in Florida now. Still a lot of votes to be counted in Broward and Dade counties. Hopefully that can make the difference for both Gillum and Nelson.

    How so? I have had to stop watching her but watched her regularly for years. Obviously Hannity is one of the worst people in the World, she is good person but the way they present their shows is very similar. Partisan without compromise.

    If I was from Florida, and was asked to run in an election. I genuinely think I'd look at past elections and think 'nah, you're grand thanks'.

    Manchin doing better than I thought after his support for Kavanaugh.

    Hannity has spent years s**t-stirring and giving life to outlandish conspiracy theories. He freely admits he is an entertainer. He is one step down from Alex Jones.

    While I ain't a fan of Maddow she at least has journalistic integrity.

    Florida is being Florida, knife edge.


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,962 ✭✭✭✭dark crystal


    Beto O'Rourke 51% v Ted Cruz 48% with a third of votes counted. Oh hell, I know it's highly unlikely, but I'd love that to be the final count!

    Its probably why he is doing better than expected.

    That'd be beautiful. Cruz is such a gutless f***.

    But surely democratic voters would be put off by that and republican voters would be voting republican anyway?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,351 ✭✭✭✭rossie1977


    Manchin a conservative Trump admirer in a state where Trump got his biggest winning margin at last election was always going to do well.

    GOP gonna win both Florida Governor and Senate races it looks like.

    They're still voting there. Apparently queues are very long.

    West Virginia is Trump country, Manchin had to side with Trump's nominee to keep the votes he needs.

    Still loads of votes to be counted in 3 south east counties, which largely favour Democrats.

    Ok I will concede that, maybe it was hyperbole on my behalf, still she cannot stand her style.
