One Major Upset

The winner gets bragging rights.


Robert A. Hahn, Pundit Emeritus

The secret of the Universe is not 42. It is 37: Donald Trump wins 37 states. Joe Biden wins 37% of the popular vote.

  • Winner: Donald J. Trump
  • Electoral Vote Count: 340 to 197
  • House: Dems
  • Senate: Reps
  • Upset: Martha McSally (R-AZ)

Susie Moore, Senior Copy Editor

  • Winner: Donald J. Trump
  • Electoral Vote Count: 295 to 243
  • House: Dems
  • Senate: Reps
  • Upset: John James (R-MI)

Scott Hounsell, Polling Nerd

This is my quasi-wishcasting guess.  Trump wins MN just so he can brag he did something Reagan couldn’t.

  • Winner: Donald J. Trump
  • Electoral Vote Count: 295 -243
  • House: Dems (Republicans pick up a couple of seats)
  • Senate: Reps 53-47 (After GA Runoff in January)
  • Upset:  Jason Lewis (R-MN)

Brad Slager – Felonious Work Opportunity Tax Reduction Hire

  • Winner: President Trump
  • EV Count: 281 – 257
  • House: DEMS Retain, GOP makes gains
  • Senate: GOP
  • Upset: Candidate – John James, MI / State – Minn. going to Trump
  • Epilogue – One unforeseen influence apart from the platforms is how many voters are motivated against the media this time around. Less the effect of Trump’s ”Fake News” claims it is more a reaction to the growing hostility coming from the news industry, and seen on social media from journalists.

Dan Spencer, Senior Contributing Editor

  • Winner: Donald J. Trump
  • Electoral Vote Count: 300 – 238
  • House:  Dems
  • Senate: Reps
  • Upset: Susan Collins (R-ME)

Shipwreckedcrew, Contributor Legal Affairs Pundit

  • Winner:  Donald J. Trump
  • Electoral Vote Count: 305 — 233
  • House:  GOP (less than 5 seat advantage)
  • Senate:  GOP (+2 net)
  • Upset: James (MI)

Mike Ford: The man, the myth, the legend, who fed an entire Infantry Division with one box of C-Rations and carried away 5 Fast Sea Lift Ships full of leftovers says:

Trump Wins and does so before Pennsylvania finishes counting “found ballots,” thus making leftists, their election lawyers, and corrupt judges irrelevant. Post-election, Mike can be found backstroking through a bottle of Alabama small batch bourbon.

 


Nick Arama, Wandering Wastrel

  • Winner: Donald J. Trump
  • Electoral Vote Count: 308 – 230
  • House:  Dems
  • Senate: Reps
  • Upset: Susan Collins (R-ME), John James (R-MI), Trump tails help pull some Senators who were endangered
    across the line.

Jennifer Oliver O’Connell, Contributor-at-Large (Quite Large)

  • Winner: Donald J. Trump
  • Electoral Vote Count: 309 – 229
  • House:  Democrats, but razor thin
  • Senate: Republicans with some pickups
  • Upset: Martha McSally will hold her seat (R-AZ), John James will pull it off (R-MI)! Minnesota and Arizona will go hard for Trump.
