Man, I nailed it on May 4, 2016. All but Joni Ernst- who is a senator not a governor. I wrote “will pick”, when I meant “should pick.” All the rest stays in place. I am seldom wrong, and all mistakes are typos. Further, my convictions are made in America iron clad.
——- Repost 5/4/2016 (Just so you know):
Here is what is going to happen:
- Clinton will pick Senator Tim Kaine as her VP candidate.
- Trump will pick Gov. Joni Ernst as his VP candidate.
- Clinton will win the election. It will be a close election.
- Washington will be as dysfunctional as before- possibly worse.
Trump will push immigration/ security and care for vets as his two central themes. Thrown into the mix will be a hard line on drug use/ support for the police, and the fight against terrorism. Clinton will push her experience, expanded education programs and helping the middle class.
Improving the economy will be a big one in Trump’s and Clinton’s campaign. Trump will talk more about reducing government spending, since he can attack Hillary through Obama’s “reckless” spending.
The conventions will be basically pageants- 3 days of non-stop promotion for each candidate. Plus, well aimed zingers at the opposition candidate. It will be well worth missing. Or in my case, record and later delete.
Trump is the master of promotion- it is highly likely he will simultaneously appear in all 12 toss-up states, next to the governor of each state (if Republican), with all members of his family. just a few hours from the Republican pageant. He will flood the news media, with lines such as, “You know what we just discovered about Hillary’s group of friends”, and then go on to link her to conspiring with Ted Cruz’s father to kill JFK (just for example).
It will be old time Washington elite verses an outsider/ new blood. Seems this worked for Barrack Obama and Jimmy Carter.
The wild card is the ongoing investigation in Clinton’s email. The FBI has not yet issued a final report.
The Republican states will predictably vote Trump and Democrat states will vote for Clinton. All eyes will be on the 10-12 toss-up states of which, just like 2012. Clinton needs to win some of the bigger toss-up states, like Florida and North Carolina to win.
So, that’s it. As the saying goes, I’m frequently wrong but never in doubt.
