Frank Lunch is a Republican pollster and chairman of lunch. Global We will not have a blue waves. We will not have a Red Mirage. We will not have any of those wins. In the end. I am still expecting Joe Biden to win Pennsylvania and with that, because about all these uncounted ballots, he'll win the election, but he's not going to eat it. Overwhelmingly. Results are still outstanding from North Carolina, Georgia, Nevada and Alaska, plus the key Rust Belt states of Pennsylvania as well as Michigan and Wisconsin. We get more from Bloomberg political contributor Rick Davis. Donald Trump is winning the states that he has to win to have a shot at being really It'd and Joe Biden has so far performed better than the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton four years ago, but not enough to win some of these states. But they're still a few key states left ago and I think it's going to be a while before the result is known to the public as to who won this election results from those key rust belt states could take several days, especially Pennsylvania.

He's leading right now. 51.2% to Joe Biden at 47.8% and this story in Florida, taking a look now with Miami Dade's numbers coming in a bit more so than what we had earlier about 95% of the votes are in in Miami Dade County and Joe Biden. Leading president Trump 53 to 46 in that county. But you know, that is not where the Biden campaign wanted to be. That was a county where Hillary Clinton beat then candidate Donald Trump 63 to 34 so huge under performance by the Biden campaign in Miami Dade and the Hispanic vote, particularly the Cuban vote really made a big difference there and likely changed the course of the election. In Florida. I take a look at some of the other areas. You know, Hillsborough County to Tampa Bay area. Joe Biden coming in at about 52.7%. Hillary Clinton was at about 51%. Not quite the increased the Biden campaign was hoping for their Florida was a state that the president had to get. It looks like he's going to get it, and that is just that's that's a big deal for President Trump. If you look at some of the modeling some of the probabilities When the president takes Florida It really changes the dynamic he goes from. You know what a lot of models had, as maybe a 10% chance at winning the Electoral College. And once Florida goes, Trump You're talking about over 30%. Then we're looking at North Carolina. If that goes Trump right now, he's got a little under 1% point lead that just adds to the mo mentum that could put him over the top. But he's not quite there yet, and we're keeping a close eye on some of these rust belt states and now Arizona as the vote comes in there That could be a tipping point state is well, Rory Let me bring you into this. What is it that you've seen over the last 10 minutes or so that stood out to you? Because we're really going minute by minute here is coming to pass. It Really?

Everything got real tight. And right now you've got a race between President Trump and show bind with 89% of the vote in less than 1% Point separates the two. It's a little bit hard, Tio kind of going through the map, trying to get a sense as to where those votes are. To know which way this thing might go in. Wake County. Where Rollie is you got about 87% of the votes being reported there, you know again. The election day turn out favors Republicans, but in some of these bluer counties, how much will it actually favor Republicans? Or do Democrats have a chance to maybe make a bit of a comeback that something? We're also watching in Ohio? Right? Because how much of this early voting was covert related versus how much was done out of, you know, political desire from from either party? We normally give the Democrats a mail in because they're aggressive and one toe unseat the incumbent, But now you have the covert vote was in there, too. So we don't know really? How much of that vote is based on Ah, candidate or based on a disease and taking a look at Ohio right now, So you've got President Trump with about a 5% point lead 74% of the votes are in. But as I'm going through the map most of the outstanding votes Aaron the more urban areas like Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnati, Columbus, So How is it gonna break is the election day vote that leans more Republican going to carry the president?

Body Cam footage shows the woman arguing with the officer before she moved just inches away from his face, and it escalates from. You just heard the officer hitting the woman. She then falls to the ground as more police. Rush into the frame, the Miami Dade Police Director Alfredo Ramirez says he was shocked and angered by the video and has asked the Miami Dade State Attorney to investigate the use of force Miami Herald reporter. David Ovalles has been covering this and David, the body cam footage begins after the woman and the police officer appear to have already been in something of a dispute. Do? We know how this started. Yes, so the woman is twenty one year old pairs, Anderson she was at the airport and had missed a flight, so she was according to the police yelling at the ticket agent. They call. The police tried to calm her down according to them, you see her yelling at the police officer taunting him about one point. He kind of steps back. Back a little bit, and then she steps into his face, and then he claims it was a head bud, and then he just you know delivers a slap. That <hes> is very visceral when you watch it, it is for sure and when you see the video, and from what you can tell from your reporting a in reference to the officer saying that she had headbutted him. Is there any indication that that had happened in? What are you hearing about whether? It would have been an appropriate response to hit her like that. I wouldn't say it's a head, but but certainly one could argue that perception, but as for whether it's inappropriate use of force. It's it's Kinda hard to tell I mean in Florida. The stand your ground law allows anybody not just police officers, no duty to retreat so whether it would be a criminal charge that's going to be debatable. Certainly administrative you talk to police, officers and I've had more than a few reach out to me and say that's absolutely how they're taught. They call it a diversionary strike. Now there's the other element in that. She wasn't wearing a mask and so there's this whole Cova vid angle as well so it's messy. It's not. optically, it looks really really bad <hes>, but I think there's going to be a lot more nuance to a case like this. Then a few of the other use of force cases we've seen in south Florida in the last couple of weeks. Right and look tensions between black people and white officers has been at the center of so many of these cases that we've been. been talking about. But how are people reacting to this incident? Given the both the woman and the officer are black well. That's one of the sort of grey areas that POPs up in Miami more than than other places because we are such diverse community, white officers here are in the minority. Most are Hispanic and there's a pretty good amount of black officers here to. In this case, the officer Tony Rodriguez is a black Puerto Rican officer, so there is a sort of added element of that you know I. Think a case like this also underscores what a lot of block officers are feeling in terms of tension and conflict block officers really know too well what it's like to grow up black, but also feel very conflicted because they're devoted to their jobs, and they feel like they're being singled out as quote, unquote sellouts, and so it also underscores. A lot of the dynamics in these really precarious times.
