    Before the debate and Covid, I was very sure it would be trump. 

    Now, I’m less sure but still over 50% sure trump will pull it off

    I’m as convinced it’s Trump as I was last time.

    I have to go with my man Trump.  I have my reasons, but will keep them to myself.

    Trump and Republican gains in both houses of Congress.  Like Jerry, I've got my reasons.

    I dont have a horse in this race...............but my prediction is that no matter who wins, the population of the USA will lose, ie, if Trump wins I dont know how you guys ( n Gals) will survive another 4 years of the same crap that has been going on since he was first elected....( talking about the divisive nature of current politics etc)........and if Biden wins then I think his 4 years will push you much further down the road to socialism...................

    Having said that, the lesser of the 2 evils is Trump winning and I hope it is so........

    I said Trump, IMHO, if he loses the election, it will be because of his mouth.  Like it or not he says things that he shouldn't. The media makes it even worse.  I wish someone would break his phone and close his twitter account.

    He's definitely got a potty mouth, however, Trump's mouth is what helped him win in 16. If he does lose it is because the blind sheep masses want communism over a constitutional republic. In truth, ALL politicians run at the mouth. Ever watch the Biden - Ryan debate? Trump is a maverick, he's an anomaly, he doesn't play by the establishment rules. He stands in the way of global government and the dismantling of America and the Maoist/ Marxist democrats are openly doing every thing they can to see that he is not re-elected no matter what part of the constitution they shred in accomplishing that goal..

    Once again I'm forced to vote AGAINST someone instead of "FOR" someone.

    President Reagan in his 2nd term (the first election I could vote in) is the only time I remember voting FOR someone as opposed to voting against their opponent.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Trump is the best thing that has happened to the GOP post-Reagan - and maybe even before! I like someone who has the balls to speak his mind, right or wrong. He is head and shoulders above the rest of the GOP, who are mostly mealy-mouthed wimps who won't take on the Left. His choice of running mate was unfortunate to my eye, but you can't have everything.
    Divisive? Hardly - it was Obama who created the divisiveness in the 1st place.

    Alec, contrary to what you may have heard, it's not Trump who is dividing this country.  It's the left wing media and the dems.  The media coverage of president Trump is over 90% negative, plus we had the phony baloney Mueller probe that turned out to be nothing but a witch hunt.  Add to that an even phonier impeachment attempt by the dems, and there you have it.

    He says some inflammatory things, but a little honest reporting would go a long way to set things straight.

    Here's what I believe.
    The next president will be an old, out of touch white guy who has had several accusations of misogyny and a well documented history of using their political position for the financial gain of themselves and their family.
    And half of the country will be absolutely sure America will not survive him.


    That's all I got.

    I am well aware that the whole 'Us and Them' situation was mainly a result of the Obama years , and wasnt blaming Trump for the situation which he inherited........The crap I was referring to is the way he has been treated by the press and the left. Not a day goes by that when I look at our national newspapers, I see at least 2 or 3 articles pointing out Trumps 'faults' and not one article showing him in good light...( I didnt explain in myself very well in my OP)
    The bias  thing is happening here with our left leaning liberal media who regard comrade Jacinda in the same category as the saviour of NZ despite the fact that she has destroyed the economy and firmly set the scene for NZ to become the socialist utopia of the Pacific.........and it looks like the unthinking populace has bought into the lies and half truths judging by the polls leading up to our election in 10 days time.

    At one point during the primary, he said he would only be a one term president.  If he wins, God only knows who will really be calling the shots.  It wouldn't surprise me if his wife is the real power behind the throne.  She sure has a lot more on the ball than he does.

    I refer to her as "THE KAMAL" because she's a DOUBLE HUMPER!!
    Aside from that, I doubt any real freedom loving American would vote for Biden. The people backing him and double humper don't care about the constitution.

    I for the life of me can not understand how people do not understand.  The promise is:  I am going to raise your pay,  How?  You will pay less taxes, and get more,  How and who pays?  The rich will pay more,  Why?   Because someone is smart, works hard, has luck they should pay a higher tax percentage than a slug?  I just don't get that way of thinking

    In a fair election I believe Trump will win. Depends on how deep and wide the ballot stuffing Democrats can go to skew the election. If the number of votes exceeds the number of eligible voters by a  few million then things will get really interesting as that could definitely skew the Electoral College badly.

    My most comfortable prediction is this. No matter who wins the ANTIFA and other anarchists on the left will ramp up their burn, loot, destroy campaign all over the U.S. If Trump wins they'll riot in protest, and if Biden wins they'll riot in celebration. Glad I live out in the hinterlands where those people fear to tread. I'll just wait and see what shakes out and wait for a phone call from any friend that lives in the burbs and needs help.

    I have confidence that Trump will win...but I look back at 2016 and the rampant impossibility that he would win....I remain cautiously optimistic...
