#GASenateRunoff (most) Election Day vote history is here! Final-ish turnout in runoff, as percent of general turnout:

Total: 89.6%
White: 89.5%
Black: 91.8%
Latino: 78.1%
Asian: 84.1%

🚨At least 226,462 new voters in runoff, 50%+ non-white. 91k+ Black, 10k+ Latino, 9k+ Asian.🚨
All of these figures are records for a runoff: turnout pct, turnout #, (low) drop-off, minority share and # of voters + new voters.

h/t to @elium2 for his tweets noting the updated runoff vote history data. @fairfightaction @BlackVotersMtr @staceyabrams @GAConGANas @ConMijente
Was close here: right now Black turnout is at 1.375 million, 92% of general. Note that this includes modeled race for other/unknown race voters. Without doing this you will underestimate Black turnout, as @staceyabrams noted.

In precincts with mail, EIP, and ED votes all counted, Ossoff is doing 0.9 points better than he did in Nov. Those precincts are disproportionately Republican, and ED turnout is much stronger for Democrats than (I) expected in outstanding areas.
In these fully reported precincts, Election Day turnout is 24% over what it was in the general. Every analyst I talked to thought Republicans needed to beat their Nov ED turnout to win, and they did. The unexpected factor was high ED turnout for Democrats.
Oh @cnn just said this! Well, fwiw, I think it's over. I agree with @gelliottmorris's projection that @ReverendWarnock will defeat @KLoeffler and @ossoff will defeat @Perduesenate. #GASenateRunoff #gapol

Merging general results, the voter file, and vote history data, it's clear drop-off among white Republicans drives the racial differences in #GASenateRunoff turnout I've identified throughout early voting. (1/x) #gapol
First, everyone needs to exit the coastal mindset re: white voters. In GA, there are only 44 precincts where whites are more than 80% of the voters and Perdue got less than 40% of the vote, for a grand total of about 85,000 white voters concentrated in DeKalb and Fulton. (2/x)
OTOH, 1.4 million white voters live in the 850 precincts that are >80% white and voted more than 60% for Perdue. These are the precincts I'll be watching tonight. (3/x)

Georgia Runoff De siste dagene av early voting viser én interessant trend – forspranget Dem hadde i early voting i starten, er nesten forsvunnet. Rep. har klart å få ut sine velgere til å stemme. Men, de er fortsatt avhengig av HØY deltakelse på valgdagen.

Men, først litt om historien bak hvorfor man skapte systemet med "runoff", eller omvalg om du vil.
Som så mye annet i sørstatene og Georgia spesielt, er også dette rasemotivert.
Når de svarte fikk stemmerett (ca 30% av befolkningen), så ble de hvite konservative livredde. Noen av dem tapte valg og skylte på at «the negos» hadde stemt samlet på motkandidaten deres.

Kelly Loeffler & husband paid 5.3 million CASH for their Studio City, CA estate in July.

The same month, Loeffler said:

"We don't need incentives not to work...I am not seeing a big need to extend the federal unemployment insurance."

Vote Ossoff & Warnock.

Now that I know Donald Trump is leaving the White House soon, every day feels like a beautiful musical.

“Excuse me if I sing
My heart has found its wings
Searchin’ high and low
And now at last I know”

— Al Jarreau

Joe Biden & Kamala Harris will take the mantle.

We can enjoy the victory now. The fruits of our labor...

But we can’t turn away from politics.

Those days of ignorant bliss are gone.

Our democracy needs regular nurturing and care.

We have so much work to do.

Let’s work together to take control of the Senate from Mitch McConnell’s cold, monstrous hands.

👉 It’s time to move this country forward.

👉 We can do this with Warnock and Ossoff. 👊

Well, who are we to tell MAGA what to do?

Let them have their boycott!

They haven’t felt the need to listen to facts or science all this time.

Free to be me

I mean free for you to be free to be you, free to be science free 🤣
