So quite a while ago there was a poll as to who you believed would win the next election.  Circumstances have greatly changed so I think it's time for an updated poll.  Remember this is not who you would vote for but who you think will win.

Why did you leave Jo Jorgensen off the list?  Just because you think she hasn't a chance, doesn't mean it can't happen.  You might underestimate the number of people who do not want to choose one of the crazy old men.  Maybe I over estimate the number, but neither of us really knows what will happen.

the other runners. Next best is Harris @ 200-1 and also Pence @ 400-1 .......

so basically a two horse race, no one else has a chance.

Kind of meaningless don't you think?

Seeing as it's illegal to bet on elections in the US. Everyone placing those bets has absolutely no say in the outcome.

its just information , make of it what you will. 

I thought the comparison from 2016 was quite interesting...ie Trump had very little chance versus the closer race this time around.

I just assumed that since you posted it, you thought it was information worth having and you would explain its value.

Apparently not.

a bit like your posts (opinions on the election)...hardly information worth having and has no bearing on the result as you are based in the UK and therefore not voting....

even for you that was a very poor dig....you are normally better than that....oh well

I don't think it's as close as what's being projected. I imagine we will end up in the same position as we did in 2016. Biden will win the popular vote and trump will eek out the electoral college vote and remain in office.

Possibly, but it isn't going to really matter even if Trump manages to win the EC AND the popular vote.  The Left have made it clear they will accept nothing short of a Biden victory.  The only question left is how far they'll be willing to "resist" his election this time around.  We are living in interesting times.

Right... because cities in Republican states have been burning all summer, yeah?  So tell me, if he wins and the blue states/cities explode, how will you react?  Will it be justified?

They're not burning because of trump....or the election.

Depends on how he wins. If he wins straight up then it won't be justified. If he wins by pretending there is fraud and taking it to the corrupt supremes then I'll be out there protesting with all of the other folks and it WILL be justified.

Here in the democrat stronghold of Seattle we had daily protests and vandalism for months in 2016.  Not to the extent that we do now, but now that it's a thing I predict there will be more violent anti-trump protests if he wins, which I don't think he will.

He will. This country is hell bent on going in that direction. Boot lickers do abound.

President Obama in Orlando Florida today. Skip to the 7:00 minute mark .... it’s probably the best speech of the year that I’ve heard, and I’m a marginal Obama fan.

He blows it at 7:40.  Predicts the Devil Rays win the series.  No way.  Not enough depth on the mound.

I’m looking on a very popular offshore betting site called Bovada, which is one of the larger sports betting sites located in Eastern Europe, and they’ve currently got Joe Biden sitting at 3/5, and Donald Trump at 8/5.

It looks like all bets have to be in by 8:00 PM on October 31st. Trick or Treat time .....  which is very interesting.

It looks like in the South Carolina Senate race, they’ve got some nice odds on Jamie Harrison, the Democrat at 7 to 1, with Lindsey Graham at just 1/16.
