With one week to go until election day, it is still very much either man’s race. However, with the consistency in the polling, both nationally and across the states, the probability is that Joe Biden will win this election. When analyzing the electoral college map, there are several avenues to victory for the Biden ticket, as opposed to a few for the President. But recall, in 2016, there were only a few avenues for then candidate Trump – and he won – so it can happen again.
Early voting is simply on a roll as we are now standing at 64.2 million votes being cast! Mail ballots represent the largest block with 43.2 million votes, while in-person accounts for 21 million. This is shattering the numbers for early voting in 2016 and some analysts project as high as 100 million votes may be in prior to election day, 3 November. If this is the case, or even close to it, then it is likely that we will know the winner on election night or within a day or two. Of course, if it’s a close race, then this may drag on for weeks, if not months, as it makes its way through the courts. Another indicator of an early election night, would be if Joe Biden should win the state of Florida. Should this happen, Biden is nearly guaranteed a victory. However, should Trump win Florida, as he did in 2016, then it’ll likely be a long night, unless Biden sweeps across the board in other battleground states.
Election 2020 and Joe Biden are much different than election 2016 and Hillary Clinton. An outsider versus an insider, straight talk against political correctness, no political track record versus a lifetime in politics, and a few others. Now, in the midst of a global pandemic and the greatest depression, coupled with the President having a political record on the books, changes the dynamic. Lots of Democrats “crossed the line” to vote for Trump in 2016 as did many Independents. There was also a large contingency that didn’t vote due to the unpopularity of the two candidates. Also, many Democrats who wanted Bernie Sanders to be the nominee, did not like how the DNC treated Sanders, and so they either didn’t vote, or voted third party. A lot of this drama that helped Trump in 2016 appears to be non-existent or at least much smaller than before. Will those same Democrats be comfortable giving Trump another four years, now that they know how he governs? Same question for Independents and even Republicans who were hesitant last time, but are they now not going to vote for Trump in 2020?
With one week left to go, it’s anybody’s guess, but what is not a guess, is the fact that the structural issues are not being addressed, nor will they likely be regardless who wins. What’s also a near 100 percent certainty is the continuation of the political, social, and economic decline and decay – again, because the structural issues are not being dealt with and because of the lack of leadership.
