Election Day is Tuesday, and I have been asked several times this week about who I predict is going to win the presidential election.
My prediction? I have absolutely no clue.
Anyone who thinks they have the certain answer or secret recipe into predicting who is going to win the election is probably lying or overconfident in their political knowledge.
National polling data and numbers in key battleground states are hinting at a Biden win, but Trump is tightening the race in states such as Arizona as recently as Friday night, according to Real Clear Politics.
While most data is indicating a Biden victory, a Trump re-election is still a major possibility. I don’t think I need to remind everyone that what happened in 2016 could be underway once again.
Regardless, the best case scenario for this election is that the victory is decisive for one candidate. The last thing this polarized country needs is a repeat of the 2000 election, where the result was ultimately decided by the Supreme Court over a recount dispute in Florida.
Although I can’t predict a winner, I can predict that there will be civil unrest. Businesses in major cities are already boarding their storefronts in preparation for riots. These agitators want to see the downfall of American civilization as we know it, and will create chaos regardless of who becomes president.
But we need to ask ourselves: why do we care so much about who becomes president?
If your answer is that “the other guy” will destroy America, you’ve probably been programmed and fear mongered to believe that.
While a Biden errrr Harris administration would have negative consequences for America, Republicans should not start prepping their doomsday bunkers just yet.
If the Democrats manage to retain their majority in the House of Representative and gain a Senate majority, Republicans should be getting back to work on November 4th.
The 2022 election will be the best shot for Republicans to win back conservative suburban voters who decided to vote Democratic during the Trump era.
Of course, this is all speculation.
For now, go and vote (if you can) for the people and laws that you think are right for your city, state, and nation. It’s 2020, what could go wrong?
