My Unscientific Prediction for 2020

Post by Turkeytop » Sun Feb 09, 2020 7:48 pm

Trump by a landslide.

We were at a big flea market today and the longest lines were at the table selling Trump paraphernalia. Hats, tee shirts, coffee mugs, bumper stickers and fridge magnets.

"Farmers for Trump." "Gun owners for Trump." "Truckers for Trump." "Smokers for Trump." Women for Trump" "Pastors for Trump." "Jesus for Trump."

The most popular item was the red tee shirt with an image of Trump's face and the caption "God, guns, guts and glory, keep America Great."

Trump in 2020. America adores Trump.

Might as well, all of the other “predictions” have been unscientific.

I'm not quite ready yet to go on the record with my official predictions for 2020, both in regards to the House, Senate, and White House. I do think Trump has an easier path to the WH than does any Democrat. I also think the Republicans hold a comfortable enough margin in the Senate that it will be tough for Dems to take over. As to the House, that is totally up in the air, though at this time I would have to say it is favored to remain controlled by Democrats.

I may be much closer after Super Tuesday next month to being ready to make some predictions.

Preliminarily I’d say the Democrat is favored to win the popular vote (they have in 5 of the last 6) but there’s at least a 50-50 chance of another electoral college decision. The senate is 50-50. It depends how much impeachment votes hurt some of the Republicans (yes Collins and Gardner especially looking at you) while the house should remain Democratic fairly easily. We may get another blue wave this year but time will tell. I’m rather partial to the adage that in politics a week is a long time.

Think it's kind of ridiculous to make that prediction the second week of February. Wasn't Trump at about 3% at this juncture of 2016? Let's at least wait and see who the Democrats run.

That said, if anyone can fuck this up.....it's the Democrats.
