Losing Florida Would Shut Down Biden’s Easiest Path To Victory

The Sunshine State was an alluring target for the Joe Biden campaign. With 29 electoral votes, Florida has a huge footprint on the electoral map. And unlike some other battleground states, it processes results quickly: A win there would have essentially ended the election in a few hours. On top of all that, it would have been redemption for Democrats: Barack Obama won the state twice. Hillary Clinton lost it in 2016. But with most votes counted, it appears Biden’s path to an easy victory...

This one will be a fight for the Democratic candidate. And it’s one that suggests ...

Election night is a crazy show. Here’s how to follow along

To figure out who is winning on election night it’ll help to think of the presidential selection process as a huge game of craps. Wait, what’s that? When you think of politics you already use a similar word? No matter, in this analogy, the connection isn’t jubilation or soul-crushing loss. It’s data. Specifically, as events unfold in both games – dice and presidential election watching – you’re going to be bombarded by numbers. Your challenge is to sort out the important from the lame. And those...
