What Does Your Map Look Like?

Post by ShiftyMutt »

From an interactive map, I made my predictions of the election results.
I'm putting more faith in Georgia than it might show.

What's your prediction? Here's the interactive map to make your own predictions of the election.

Mine is the same except, Trump holds on to Florida by squeezing out the last of the old school Cuban voter.
P/S Tennessee vote will be this year's Georgia.

I waver on Florida myself. But I'm counting on the older folks and Latinos to wake up.
South Carolina might be a surprise this election. I mean, absent of voter suppression.

Biden's leading the polling on Florida by more than the margin of error but I won't believe it till I see it.

Judging by what I'm hearing about African-American enthusiasm in GA, I'd give it to Biden too, although the polls say he's only leading by a point or two.

But losing both of them still puts Biden ahead.

Biden's lead in FL is suspect. What might help is that Puerto Rico's largest newspaper just endorsed Biden today. Its first presidential endorsement.....ever.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Biden could lose a lot of tossup states and still eke out a win, although we'd probably have to drag trump out of the White House with a tractor on January 19th if this happened:

Interesting to come back to this thread and see how it went. Aside from shading, we were all off by 2 states. But also shows how off the polling was, too.

Which is exactly what happened. What tilted FL for Trump was the naked voter suppression exercised by the GOP legislature and governor denying ex felons their right to vote. A right that was approved by the voters of FL.
