In 2000, it wasn't until December 14 that Alphonse Capote Gore finally gave up.

I don't mind, if I have to, waiting until December 14, 2020, for Biden to concede.

I'm just sitting back, letting God and Donald Trump take care of it.

It's a long time away until mid-December, but I don't expect to be disappointed.

The worst about this is the nonstop begathon texts. You would think the lawyer fees would've already been budgeted in

Agreed. I'd have thought those obnoxious texts would end after Election Day!

Live in a "purple" state with an often competitive race for President  (Trump won easily), highly contentious Senate race (incumbent Republican won), and a toss up House district (Democrat won).

Was getting dozens of fundraising emails a day, up to 10 texts and up to 10 mailers from PAC's in snail mail.  Exhausting and a waste of time & money.

Interesting how everyone is simply letting the media call it. Should be fun to watch this play out.

The media is not the government or secretary of state or election commission.

The Electoral College

The Electoral College in 2020
The following is a summary of how the Electoral College will work in the 2020 presidential election:

Spring and Summer 2020: Nomination of Electors. The political parties in each state nominate their electors. Parties and states have different ways of going about this, but a party's presidential electors are generally loyal or consistent party members. The parties want to be sure they can rely on their electors to cast their votes for the party's nominee for president.
Nov. 3, 2020: Election Day, when voters in each state will select their presidential electors. The names of electors are not on the ballot in most states. Rather, when a voter casts a vote for a presidential candidate, s/he is also casting a vote for the electors already selected by the party of that candidate. If a majority of voters in a state vote for the Republican candidate for president, the Republican slate of electors is elected. If a majority vote for the Democratic candidate, the Democratic slate of electors is chosen.
Dec. 8, 2020: Deadline for Resolving Election Disputes. All state recounts and court contests over presidential election results must be completed by this date. (3 U.S.C. § 5). For the majority of states the date of certification is the same as for all contests, but in eight states there is a deadline that either directly references 3 USC §5 or uses similar language, requiring that disputes surrounding the selection of presidential electors be resolved in time to meet the “safe harbor” deadline: Indiana, Iowa, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. For detailed information on state post-election processes, please visit this page.
Dec. 14, 2020: Meeting of the Electors. The electors meet in each state and cast their ballots for president and vice president. Each elector votes on his or her own ballot and signs it. The ballots are immediately transmitted to various people: one copy goes to the president of the U.S. Senate (who is also the vice president of the United States); this is the copy that will be officially counted later. Other copies go to the state's secretary of state, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the presiding judge in the district where the electors meet (this serves as a backup copy that would replace the official copy sent to the president of the Senate if it is lost or destroyed).
Dec. 23, 2020: Deadline for Receipt of Ballots. The electors' ballots from all states must be received by the president of the Senate by this date. There is no penalty for missing this deadline.
Jan. 6, 2021: Counting of the Electoral Ballots. The U.S. Congress meets in joint session to count the electoral votes.
Jan. 20, 2021: Inauguration Day.  The president-elect becomes the president of the United States.
