In Today’s Bulwark…
All of Trump’s Anti-Democratic Attacks Have Failed—So Far
Kim Wehle: He lied about mail-in-ballot fraud. He undermined the postal service. Now he wants the courts to halt the counting of ballots.
The Problem of the Male Voter
Mona Charen: Does this election tell us something about American men?
The State of the Nation
Jonathan V. Last: You can see Hungary from America's front porch.
Will the American Fever at Last Break?
Richard North Patterson: In a blatantly anti-democratic speech, Trump demands states stop counting ballots. As of early morning, though, Biden still has a chance to win.
Well, I was wrong!
At least on a couple of things. I’ve been wrong before. My two big predictions were these: Joe Biden would win the popular vote by 8%. Not gonna happen probably. And, more wrongly, I thought we’d have a clear idea of the winner on election night.
And as I am writing this, it’s a day after the election, so, obviously that didn’t happen.
I still think things look good for Biden, but I obviously was wary of an EC prediction because the variance was so wide. Should Joe Biden win, which I think he probably will, it will be around 300 EVs. Probably on the under.
