With millions of votes still uncounted, Trump falsely says he won. Nevada officials say it will take several days to count the votes. Democracy by vote is being voided by Trump & the GOP, this is a dictatorship waiting for a Supreme Court to sanction it.

This is crazy. A lot of money was out there to be made if you could handle the swings. Trump was -600! at one point and is now a slight (extremely slight) dog.

I think this shows that betting markets are terrible predictors of elections. At least at interpreting live data.

The odds are now identical to what they were 24 hours ago. Which I find hilarious. Maybe because Im on less than 3 hours of sleep...

I wonder how much money was there to be made on this swings. My gut tells me it was a small handle but I dunno.

If betting live sports is any indication you would have to either be near perfect at predicting or just bet the person you liked and hope for the best.

I wonder about that late punter who laid millions on Trump.

Does any book offer an "EC Point Spread?"
