This lady seems credible. She's followed by some election nerds.




Looks like there is exit polling, at least for the Lamb campaign.

She's a Political Science professor at the University of Pittsburgh. So very legit.

Ok, so we're at the elation point of the pre-election anecdotal reports.

Let's try to bring that down to cautiously optimistic.

Saccone should realise that there is a difference between being an underdog and blowing a race that should be an easy win.

Yeah, Lamb's probably going to win this. They can't use the "Workers get off at 5" excuse since a trove of working class individuals are going for Lamb.

Btw, my Aunt lives in Mt. Lebanon. You're welcome, Conor. Wink

Everything is working in his favor: Poll numbers, turnout, weather, enthusiasm, fundraising numbers, etc. I'm getting to the point where I would be kinda shocked if Saccone were to pull this off.

@fluffypanther19
In politics worldwide, red is usually associated with the left and blue with the right.

Edit: The USA is the opposite for some reason.
oh ok. thank you

Twitter is a cruel place for the proper Atlas colors.

Dave picked those colors before Red = Republican and Blue = Democrat

Maybe we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves? This is still a Trump +20 district, and the polling we've got indicates that this race is Lean Lamb at best.

Yeah Democrats here are sounding far too confident considering this is a tossup race in a heavily Republican district.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this. That's as far as I go. But I will celebrate it as much as the AL Senate victory if it happens because it would be an astounding victory.

Not a great news story for Saccone to wake up to.

Yeah, I can't see how a chaotic day at the WH will help turnout for him at all.

I assume this is what we're talking about.

I don't know that it will really affect turnout or Saccone's support ... however, it is a pretty surefire way to make sure the likely (but by no means guaranteed) GOP loss tonight will barely register in the papers over the next few days.

I'm not saying Trump did this, btw. Dumping a secretary of state in order to distract attention away from a single special election loss is spectacularly poor strategy. But to be honest, it fits Trump's modus pretty comfortably.


Too much of a coincidence for it to be a coincidence.

I think that's giving Trump too much credit

2016 results in Allegheny: http://results.enr.clarityelections.com/PA/Allegheny/63905/Web02.193333/#/cid/0104

I'm nervous about high turnout because of what happened with Ossoff, but I see Castle Shannon voted Clinton.

Well, we saw the Monmouth poll. High turnout = Lamb victory.

The distinction between the 2 candidates. You have Succone ranting like a madman and then Conner taking pics with puppies and going to the polls with g-ma
