1) More glitches and delays in counting ballots in Arizona, with Kari Lake poised to win the governorship and Blake Masters at a very narrow possible victory. Authorities found 17,000 bad signature matches that have to be addressed by verifiers. (They are delaying releasing the good news for Lake and possibly for Masters).
-Maricopa County Republicans are in force at the counting center.
Maricopa County Republicans have Observers in MCTEC. I was there last night and PERSONALLY saw spoke with our observer in adjudication. We will have the maximum of legally allowed observers there ALL DAY. I had Republican workers in Adjudication last night. We are on it!

2) An important story, senate poll averages overstated Republican support (for the first time). What’s going on?
-COMMENT: I think two things are at work.
-First, because of the strategy of DemoKKKrats voting early, the remaining pools of voters may still reflect the correct “mix” of voters but ignores the fact that a large pool is already 100% voted out and aren’t even likely voters, they were actual voters. As the pools dwindle, they get redder, but the actual vote totals rise.
-Second, as discussed in the column by Sundance below, there is a new and very effective DemoKKKrat strategy developed during the China Virus called “ballots” over “votes.” In essence, it is to emphasize getting as many ballots out into peoples’ hands—infirmed, dead, incompetent, illegal, doesn’t matter. Then many, if not most of these, can be “voted” by DemoKKKrat operatives. The chance that many/most will slip through is high.
3) Here is the must-read piece by Sundance at the Last Refuge on the different strategies: DemoKKKrats emphasize ballots, Republicans, votes. Yes, there is a difference.

4) Did you know the Republicans won the national popular vote in this election by 5%? Why didn’t this translate into seats? Cuz Republicans are moving to more red areas, reinforcing safe R seats (i.e., Arizona, Florida, Texas).
One of the quiet stories under the hood is that Republicans are looking like they'll win the popular vote. Probably a popular vote swing of 5% (depending on how CA votes work out), swinging about 2% of the chamber. IOW, the generic polls are likely to be about spot on. Why? 1/

5) In case you missed it, there is an all-out effort now by neverTrumpers, the media, and Hoax News to present Ron DeSantis as the “face” of the new GOP and to push Trump out.
-Mistake of the century if they push this.
6) DeSantis sees big gains in Florida school board races.
7) This is a terrific recap of the election—though I still caution you we do not know where the final numbers are going to land. He says abortion was bigger than predicted, but not huge, and that the China Virus lockdowns totally restructured the electorate into a large group of Lockdown Lucys who see gubment as their savior. (Explains DeWeenie in OH and Witless Protection in MI)
It's one of the strangest elections on the books, as witness the shock among so many on the Democrat side that they did so well. They somehow managed to defy political gravity, despite the worst "wrong track" numbers in memory. Probably no single explanation, but a few factors… https://t.co/BO2VwhoTc9
