This is the scenario that many were worried about: no clear outcome on the last day of voting. So now we wait.

We’re in the midst of a pandemic, of course, and so we must be patient while officials cut through a thicket of mail-in, early, and day-of voting. And then there’s Trump, who prematurely declared victory. In this special day-after livestream of the Mother Jones Podcast, Washington Bureau Chief David Corn discusses the big trends from election night and where to look for results next. Reporter Noah Lanard gets to the bottom of the Miami-Dade count that helped cost Biden the 29 coveted electoral votes in Florida—something that his on-the-ground reporting hinted at weeks ago. On the other side of the country: Fernanda Echavarri breaks down the organizing and politicking that flipped Arizona from red to blue—if early calls hold true—and how reliable that state may be for Democrats in future elections.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
