Except all the votes HAVE NOT BEEN COUNTED. They're counting Election Day votes first, instead of early and absentee/mail in votes. Last I heard Joe Biden was 3 million votes ahead, and that's without a lot of votes counted, so maybe the polls aren't that wrong.
In 2018, it took a week for the Blue Wave to show itself.
Perhaps the media could, oh I don't know, SHUT THE FUCK UP. Let the votes be counted.
