This will be short and sweet.
I predict the President will be re-elected.
In the Electoral College, he needs 270 to win. I predict he will get around 320.
In the popular vote, despite all the voter suppression, he will win by about 3 million. Not as much as the last time when he won by 8.5 million, but a comfortable margin nonetheless.
In the Senate, I think the Democrats will wind up with 55 seats. And I imagine the House will stay about the same.
By the way, I also predict that whatever the winning margin is the right wing will say it is not a mandate. You can ignore that. Winning this election, with all the money and lies that were thrown in his way, will be one hell of a mandate.
Anyway, I thought to write a few political posts without making a prediction would be weak. So here it is.
If you haven’t voted, please do. No matter who you are voting for. I never vote a straight ticket and I don’t expect anyone else to either.
I like that you took a stand and made your prediction public. Thank you!
Thanks. I figured it was only fair to take a stab at it. I am really happy that I got it almost all right.
You don’t even know how glad I am. =)
