You don’t even need to watch election night coverage to know how New England votes. It’s all blue, all the time, except for perhaps a tiny congressional district in Maine. And we’ve seen how deep-blue New York City has handled the coronavirus. Not to mention all the NY license plates zooming around Newport, RI. So I’ll include NY in the deep blue northeast blob.
As of this morning, three-quarters of Rhode Island votes are tallied, with over half of them coming from Providence county. It’s a landslide for Biden as the blobs keep spreading. Massachusetts, with blue blob Boston, extends its reach into southern New Hampshire (as workers trade-off a commute with no state income taxes). It’s all Biden. There just isn’t enough land, or in other words, rural voters, to absorb the blobs.
As of this morning, the northeast blue blob has secured 61 of the possible 62 electoral college votes—without even looking, it’s the same on the left coast.

And the media, and its polls, are in the bag for Democrats, just like the blue blobs. Tucker Carlson slammed the media last night:
Tristan Justice writes at The Federalist:
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson blasted pollsters Tuesday, the only clear losers on election night after results defied the prophesy of a Democratic blowout as they did four years ago.
After Carlson questioned Fox for calling Arizona for Biden, despite Republicans objecting as an estimated million votes have yet to be tallied, he condemned pollsters for once again making projections so wildly at odds with reality.
“We were wrong, and some of these polls were wrong, and I think many of them probably were wrong for honest reasons but wrong nonetheless,” Carlson said, emphasizing his criticism isn’t directed at Fox News but at the media more broadly. “That’s a problem. That’s misleading, and we should cop to it, I think.”
While polls showed Biden leading across swing states, races in Florida, Iowa, and Ohio have been called for Trump by comfortable margins.
Carlson continued, condemning the toxic political culture keeping voters from sharing who they supported at the polls.
“If you are afraid to express a legitimate political view in public, if you believe you could be fired for it, or banished from polite society for it — is it a free society?” Carlson asked. “The answer, of course, is no, it’s not. And that’s a betrayal of the basic promise of America.”
