Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

No.  It's always like this.  New York and California always take forever, and elsewhere it just takes a long time to get through things like provisional ballots because a lot more verification work has to go into it.  

People just never paid attention before, because we didn't have one party trying to get states legislatures to throw out the results.

You can follow the count and which states have finished and certified their results here:

...adding:

The "red mirage/blue shift" phenomenon is actually the norm with the popular vote for this reason.  Recall that Obama only led McCain by about 3 points on Election Night in 2008 and won by 7.2.  If memory serves, Romney actually led Obama slightly around 11PM on Election Night in 2012 (ironically Trump had a meltdown on Twitter about the Electoral College over it), but Obama wound up winning by 3.9.

Florida Is the only one of 15 battleground states where Trump improved his performance in terms of margin of victory since 2016. You must be so proud! :-)

All things considered, if you offered me Georgia as a blue state in exchange for Florida as a red state going forward, I'd probably take that.

Now if we could just get a Georgia- or Virginia-type blue shift in North Carolina....
