Will the media outlets be actually calling any battleground states on election night? My guess is they will if Biden wins them but won't if Trump wins them unless its such an overwhelming margin that can't be denied..

Which are the states that still have these rules changes where votes will still be tallied after election day? PA and NC I think are two. I think MI was shot down but unsure.

I think they stop reporting vote totals if trump is winning by wide margins.

The media will refuse to call trump battleground states on election night. They might give a vote total that shows trump slightly ahead but say that doesn't mean Trump won.

I also suspect most media outlets will refuse to update electoral vote totals for the battlegrounds on election night so they'll end their coverage giving Biden the electoral vote lead to make people go to sleep with the feeling Biden is winning, when in reality he isn't.

Fox unless Trump is running away with it. The CNN to CBS.

They won't call them IMO. They'll start promoting mail in ballots and talking about uncertainty, etc. they'll do that long enough to give the dems a shot at finding enough secret boxes to win.

Mark Levin radio, and then rsb youtube channel after that
in order for democrats, liberals, progressives et al to continue their illogical belief systems they have to pretend not to know a lot of things' By pretending 'not to know' there is no guilt, no actual connection to conscience. Denial of truth allows easier trespass.

Yep. They will slow play it if Trump is ahead and pretend like they need more verification.

While I would love to see it over with on election night...I think they delay calling it a Trump victory until the next day if things play out like 2016.

They will be posting the live reported vote tallies as usual. Unlikely we see a lot of races called. The standard generally is they have to be 99.5% sure of the win before they call it. Many precincts are going to take a long time to report results.

Actually, I will have several Sec of State and certain county sites up in different windows to check on the margins. Probably will have FNC on in the background. Margins. Sucks that Florida is in two different time zones but if the margins in the Eastern Time Zone aren't very high (30%) for Biden by Miami/Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, he's toast in Florida.

Florida is already over. Trump will win by more than 5%. Currently, more Republicans have voted in Miami Dade than Democrats. It's the equivalent of Seattle going red. A dead red Florida and Ohio means so very much regarding the overall tenor of the voting enthusiasm level, and the electoral college as a whole. It's gonna be a rough night for the left.
