CNN will run their headline in extra large all-caps font, one of either "CATASTROPHE" if Trump wins, or "FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT" if Clinton wins. Or something along those lines. All the news networks have their headlines pre-prepared in advance. And let's face it, Clinton could do no wrong in this election.

I'm expecting much like the previous two elections: the statistically random result that would be expected when two parties take opposite views on every single issue.

It would be extra interesting if the result was actually exactly tied right down the middle: 50-50. 'Cause it would be truly entertaining to see how that little mix up gets ironed out. I think movies have been made on that possibility.

It all goes to support my idea that: party politics is stupid. What we all need is a little "direct democracy" to stabilize the system and provide certainty for people, majority rule, and an actual mandate for elected representatives.

      I will consume a volume of alcohol tonight exceeding the total I have consumed over the past 312 days of 2016.
    • My prediction Roy, Tue Nov 8 10:20am
      Hillary wins. I'm starting to think that there may not ever be another republican president. Democrats get a large part of the white vote and basically owns the black and Hispanic vote.

              But I do understand (if reluctantly): he was fighting to retain any kind of voice in the Senate at that point. A Trump victory wouldn't likely change that position, but a Clinton victory after he'd... more

    • My prediction....SES, Mon Nov 7 8:22pm
      Hillary wins by a landslide in the Electoral College, although many of the States are VERY close. Several States have to do recounts. Trump graciously a day or two.
