Four years have passed since it seemed that Hillary would be our new POTUS and we dodged a bullet.... seems both like a lifetime and just yesterday...

Anyway, the election is upon us. In 7 months we will elect our next President and pick ALL of the House and 1/3rd of the Senate.

The 2020 United States elections will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. All 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives, 35 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate, and the office of president of the United States will be contested.

I'm curious to hear your general predictions, and specific predictions.

I predict a VERY good 2020 election year for the GOP. Trump wins again with Pence as VP. I believe the GOP will handily take back the House and hold or gain seats in the Senate.

For the Dems and POTUS, it's a wide open race with no clear front runners. Thru a process of elimination:

* Warren doesn't have the legs and has too much baggage, too much dishonesty, and her policies are not broadly popular.
* The DNC will pass again on Sanders. He's too old and his policies are not broadly popular.
* Biden is losing ground on a near weekly basis, is too old, too many gaffs, etc. Biden is in free fall, and way too much liability with his VP extortion on record regarding Ukraine and his son's corruption and that growing scandal that will almost certainly see indictments. And the Obama era indictments are an almost certainty and he's tied to much to it.
* There's speculation that Hillary may enter late, even as a VP. I don't see that happening. Too much baggage, too many losses, too old and feeble, etc.
* I don't thing Buttigieg has the legs nor is the broadly popular. But among these he's got a youthfulness and may attract a certain minority to vote.

I suspect Bloomberg will be either tapped for the Dem nomination or as VP. He has success and money, a track record of winning. Right now, I think one of the lesser known Dems might be tapped for POTUS or VP by the DNC.

If the Dems are smart, they need to pick a more moderate. I look at the more "sane" Dems with more moderate views and I wouldn't be surprised if Tulsi Gabbard and/or Yang are in that mix. I think their best play is having Gabbard on the ticket in some fashion, and maybe even the head of the ticket.

Also, I think Bernie will run as an independent as an FU to the institution that he perceives as screwing them. That will really hurt the Dems.

I think the Dems are going to lose a lot of ground in both the House and Senate.

On the GOP side. Trump will run again, and probably pick Pence as VP. It's possible he might let Pence step down and pick a VP from a big state or swing state, which would be a smart play. Imagine if Trump could lock down California by picking a CA Republican, for instance, who could deliver that state!

I do expect Trump to make some big bold unexpected moves like picking a new VP, for instance.

Your thoughts?

I agree. I am guessing Pence will remain the VP. I can't think of any good republicans from a dem state that Trump could swing but wouldn't rule out a bold move. I see the house majority flipping and the senate remaining the same.

I thought all along that the left doesn't have a front runner capable of doing any good. I don't know if they have fallen into the trap of believing their own lies or have a suprise of their own.

Incumbent VPs typically run for POTUS next go-around so I think Trump will keep Pence since he's well known, well liked and scandal free.

Bloomberg will buy his way into the dem nomination. One of the also-rans will be his VP most likely one of the women. Think kamala-toe harris. She'll be the token.

Bernie will be snubbed again which will tick off the militant millennials so much they stay home.

The GOP will get the house back and keep the senate which will shut down any further monkey business on the part of the dems.

Trump will of course win BIGLY and continue with his judge replacement with RBG a major one.

===

I think the GOP will finally, maybe, grow a backbone having seen what a real leader with one looks like, stop turning the other cheek and fight back.

One can hope.

Down here in AZ-land, current CD holders will remain in place with a couple of caveats:

- Ann Kirkpatrick is a drunk. She may be at risk in CD2.
- Grijalva will go nowhere. He's got the illegal vote sewn up.

In the race for Senate, McSally will lose a second time if she doesn't get off her ass and run a campaign like she should.

President Trump will win bigly here.

I predict a banner election for the GOP.

Bernie and VP Pete, the only non septuagenarian running.

Although I don’t agree with Bernie’s policies, I believe he is an honest socialist, which is more than I can say for the Demon-rats.

I believe the Dems are in big trouble. They already passed over the moderate canidates and now have few choices left.

Bloomberg is a mega rich Republican.
Bernie is a full blown Communist.
Warren pretends to be a Socialist, but if fact she is just a liar.
Mayor Pete is a foolish, openly gay child.
Biden is now seen as corrupt and creepy.

Four months ago the Dems had a good chance to pick a moderate, run against Trumps mouth and twitter account, and maybe hold the house.

But now they have ****ed on almost everyone. Their best shot is to nominate Bernie and hope for the best. If the screw Bernie for a second time they will fracture their base and loose every contested race.

I agree with almost everything you posted. But there's one thing you said that has me wondering: You called Pete Buttigieg a 'child'. I think that's a bit weird because for all his flaws, one of the things I like best about him is that unlike everybody else you mentioned, he's actually under 70.

I predict that Julys Democratic National Convention will be must see TV. If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination (especially it it looks like he should), his followers will revolt. They will not vote for the nominee other than Bernie and will either not vote at all or some few will actually vote for Trump.

2020 will be a walk for Trump barring some unforeseen catastrophe or Democratic false flag action a week prior to the election. Capturing the House will be possible, but not easy. It depends on how much outrage has built up against the “Squad” and those like them. The appeal for getting free stuff is very hard for uninformed voters to decline. Demonizing the so-called “Rich” (today’s Bourgeoisie) will continue unabated as will the efforts to impeach the President again.

Mark my words, after Trump is done with his 2nd term, there will likely never be another Republican president again. Once the left gets control of the Senate, House, and the Whitehouse again, they will never relinquish power again. What’s more, the demographics of our country are changing so rapidly (mostly due to illegal immigration), that it is quite possible that winning another election as Republicans will simply not be possible.

At that point true patriotic Constitutionalists will have some very serious choices to make.

Something you all need to be aware of and the importance. This is also a Census year. While I do not tell the government anymore than I have to, this will be an important year and the Democrats know it simply from a headcount perspective. Ten states are likely to lose one or more seats. California and NY being on that list:

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/2020-c...ssional-district-after-census-analysis-finds/

Texas could gain a minimum of two if not three seats. Even here in AZ-land; we will get one and there has been talks of possibly two! That of course makes it clear for a few things including:

1. California specifically, and Democrats in general, protecting at all costs the illegals in that state. Especially since people are leaving the state in droves for places like AZ, CO, and TX. CA will not give up a seat without a YUGE fight.
2. TX would become 2nd only to CA in number of CDs. The Democrats are going to pour millions into that state to flip it.
3. AZ - already 5 of 9 CDs are blue. There will be massive redistricting fight to protect the incumbent Democrats at all costs. You can rest assured there will be lawsuits. At the state legislature level, the Republicans hold a thin majority.

Now, let me be very clear: in 2011 the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission was made up of 1 Independent, 2 Democrats and 2 Republicans. The Independent was out of Pima County which is solidly blue. Should there be a similar Commission make up in 2021, we may very well see a CD map that will invariably favor the Democrats.

I predict Bernie does not become the democratic nominee but they will make him vice president nominee to prevent splitting the vote and angering his supporters.

I also see him losing the election but it will not be a landslide for Trump.

Win or lose for Trump, I predict this will be the last election in the UNITED states.
If he wins, we become a dictatorship.
If he loses, civil war.

The same was said in 2008 and again in 2012. Nothing will change including which side is calling the other's a dictator. At least President Trump hasn't made any overt efforts to do away with the importance of the Electoral College or circumvent Congress by rewriting immigration law via EO. Nor has his efforts to undermine the 2A via gun trafficking to the cartels resulted in the murder of a BP agent and a couple ranchers. And, we haven't had any ambassadors killed through the dereliction of duty by the Secretary of State.

I'd say the man is doing a pretty good job.

I'm sure what you meant to say was if he wins, civil war. If he loses, dictatorship.
