    Thanks. This is what we'd be looking for:
    http://crystalball.centerforpolitics...020-president/

    Unfortunately, this was last updated September 19 so it's a bit out of date. But it currently gives (for electoral votes) 248 Democrat, 248 Republican, and 42 Toss-Ups.


    FYi: it's still too early - the horses aren't even at the track yet.
    Oh, I know it's too early. I was just noting that if we do want to judge it by polls, we have to do it on a state-by-state poll rather than an overall national one.

    Yep, that's it. This early, there won't be a lot of shifting so they won't update as often - I expect they will shortly, though.

    Yep, but there's a lot of light blue and toss ups where there didn't use to be. Wisconsin in toss up? You couldn't have taken bets on that four years ago, even this semi-ridiculously early.

    Cool.

    Oh, you don't like democracy Max? Then again, you are a republican, so that would make sense.
    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner.

    Considering how many if not most Democrats and nearly all of the MSM are to the left of Biden they were likely more than willing to sacrifice Biden if they thought they could damage Trump.

    Sabato had an excellent track record up until 2016 when he predicted Hillary winning 322 to 216 and the Democrats taking control of the Senate.

    No one bats a thousand - but, yeah, when I saw his final prediction I was thinking "you know better - heck, you taught me!!!!"*

    Yep, she lost in the electoral college, but she won with the people, just as the polls predicted she would. If it weren't for the Russians and Jill Stein she'd have won the electoral college as well. Unfortunately the Russians won.

    And that's the only thing that matters, because both sides were fully aware of the rules, and ran their campaigns accordingly.

    Hillary is not POTUS
    SCOTUS is not Hillary's.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    No, I think the Russian interference meant to get Putins man into the Whire House matters as well, CP. And it all certainly worked out for Russia.
