Sep 2020

By 9:00 it will be clear that Trump 's path to 270 is gone. Michigan, Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina, will be solid blue. Ohio and Georgia will be trending for Biden.

By 10:00 Wisconsin and Minnesota will be called. Texas and Iowa. Early results from Arizona will be promising.

At 11:00 results from the Pacific Blue Wall including Nevada will give Biden a solid 300+ tally in the Electoral College with another 100 EVs still not clear from states like Ohio, Georgia, Iowa, and Texas. By that time, they won't matter.

The win will be unambiguous and humiliating for the man-child POTUS.

Tradition would have us hear a warm concession speech to begin uniting the country. Instead we will hear baseless charges of voter fraud and Presidential grievance. The Brooks Brothers Riot team will do their best to make noise and file frivolous lawsuits, but the die will be cast.

Trump will arrange his own pardon, and pardons for hundreds of friends and familiy. He will try to escape accountability, but state finance laws and civil suits for fraud and rape will bankrupt him again. The Russians will pull the vig. He may soon find himself between Russian hitmen and an open window in a tall building. Putin does not want his puppet exposing the crimes once Trump is no use to him.

Buckle up. The election is only the beginning.
