    THOUGHTS FROM AN INDEPENDENT

    YES...it's early folks, but I think the dye has been cast on the 2020 election, and here it is:

    * The Democrats will win back the White House: Sorry Trump supporters...you can yell "deep state" "socialism" "open borders" "soft on crime" and all the other slick stuff you hear on FOX and friends, but it's not going to be enough. Donald Trump's erratic behavior, womanizing, name calling, and sucking up to every murderous dictator on the planet is not what most Americans want for a President. (and we're still waiting for MEXICO to pay for that wall!)

    * The Democrats will win back the Senate: It's going to be close, district gerrymandering will help the GOP Senators up to a point, but there is just too much pent up anger with this "do nothing" group to save them.

    * Donald Trump and his family will face some very ugly legal realities once he leaves office: With no executive privilege, pardons, or directives regarding inditing a sitting president to hide behind, the Trump family's legal woes will dog them for many years to come.

    Trump could have salvaged a 2nd term, but he has lied a bit too much, didn't deliver those manufacturing jobs, made too many political enemies, has been unable to maintain a stable staff, and made no attempt to reach out to those independent and swing voters who decide elections.

    The Democrats won't have to be at their best to win this time around, Trump has made it too easy for them.
    Another BLUE wave is coming...

    Those are the facts Jack. Just the facts!

    The Democrats will find themselves trapped in a political trash compactor, with no escape possible.

    With who? Have you seen the Democrat candidates? Laughable at best.


    Again, with who? And what is the current crop of Democrats doing that's any different from their opposition?
    Doubtful. The Democrats in 2025 will be too mired down in their own legal troubles.

    My prediction is people that predict should never be taken seriously because they tend to be unstable enough to apply their own desires to a lack of real world understanding.

    Just for fun I will predict that that you are wrong because you are crazy.

    I hope only one of your first two predictions comes true, do not really care which.

    The country is far better off when different parties hold the Senate and the White House.

    Honestly, Democrats are going to have a very difficult time winning the White House, because they are so damn stupid when it comes to politics. Democrats have a magical ability to lose a sure thing. They've been doing it for decades, and they're continuing on that very same path today. The current circus of 25 candidates is embarrassing. And for all their complaints about undignified behavior, they're doing the same thing. Just like Clinton in 2016, Democrats are repeating the same mistake of believing all you need to win is to be present and not-Donald Trump.

    Please explain the effect "gerrymandering" has on a senate race.

    Is there an effect on presidential races?

    There is no gerrymandering in the Senate. It is a statewide election
