A word of warning: do not pay attention to incomplete results this election. WIth mail in voting, early voting, and record numbers of people voting, until the total votes counted approaches 100 %, the numbers the networks are presenting are basically meaningless.

Some states count mail in voting first

As of now there are still 6-7 too close to call (and I am switching between ABC, CNN, and FoxNews with some frequency.)

Fox called Virginia for Biden. Kentucky for Trump.
I don't understand how they can call Virginia with less than 1% counted and when Trump is ahead by almost 18%. They are basing it on "polls," which was the problem in 2016.

I guess I have to turn my television back on. Until I saw this thread, I didn't know that networks were finally calling results.

its because the big democrat areas have not come in yet. Neither party bothered with Va, figuring its now deep blue. Lots of liberals have moved into the areas around DC in the last ten years.
