The Joys Of Opening Time Capsules: 2020 Election Predictions
In 2018, we made predictions about what would happen in the mid-terms.
And, yes, in 2019, we made predictions about who the Democratic nominees would be. While I did manage to guess that it was going to be Biden/Harris, there were SO MANY THINGS that happened between there and, say, March that had you asked me mid-February if I wanted to change my prediction, I would have. (And, yeesh. I thought that Buttigieg would make a good VP choice for Anyone Not Biden.)
But all that is behind us now. Now we look to the future. Here is the 270-to-Win map for 2016. Now all you have to do is click the states that you think will flip this time around and the website even does the math for you. Flip Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania! Flip Florida too! Look at that! Trump gets 231 Electoral Votes! No Bugs Eaten! Heck, flip Arizona! And Maine’s district 2! Take that!
Or, heck, flip them back and throw Minnesota in there for good measure. “How did this happen?”, we can ask. “The protests were mostly peaceful!”
The only rule is this: You can’t call someone else’s predictions stupid and obvious wishcasting if you don’t make your own predictions first!
