Eeesh, it's going to get messy.

Hopefully the Biden win is so vast that any attempt by Trump to discredit will not get taken seriously.

Gut feel is that Biden will win by a large majority. But my gut also told me that Hilary would win and Brexit would go to Remain vote so....

My gut said Trump and Brexit would win, my gut says Biden this time. But then my gut told me Corbyn would win in December.

Biden is going to win a fair election by a landslide.

Trump's team know this, it's pretty clear what their strategy is going to be now:




The narrative is going to be Trump had more votes on election night, so the Dems are committing ballot fraud by mail votes to get him out.

I got 'em all right. Although I didn't think the Tories would win 80 seats in total. I'm very unsure about this election tbh.

A legitimate Trump win is not at all likely. It's all the illegitimate outcomes that concern me.

Yeah, it's going to get really nasty in the US as I don't see him giving up power voluntarily. If he fails in the courts, I can see him calling on the right wing militia and Proud Boys type groups to help him.

Ultimately he'll be thrown out, but it's going to get very violent.

Yep. I fully expect that people are going to die during this election period, unfortunately.

I'm inclined to believe that as soon as it is clear he has lost 'legitimate' power, his 'supporters' will drop him like the sack of gooseberry fool he is.

Edit - just to clarify, I'm thinking of his government/party/civil service type supporters. No doubt you'll have the hardcore dickhead citizens causing all sorts of gooseberry fool.

I'm really looking forward to Trump declaring victory early on and then having it ripped from his grasp as more votes come in.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

If it's clear he's lost by a landslide, the Republican party will want to distance themselves from him as quickly as possible for their longterm survival.

Can Biden bring Obama with him to the white house for the change over?
