What's your prediction?

Politics Nothing goes with politics quite like crying and complaining, and we're a perfect example of that.

What's your prediction?

Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania for starters. I'm not sure about Ohio though. That could be a tough one to predict.

In looking at the link above to 270towin's forecast for November 2020 and comparing it to their forecast for November 2016, their maps looks somewhat similar aside from the tossup states. In this year (2020), I think Florida and a few other states like Georgia and North Carolina should at least be marked as leaning red. After 2016's results and looking at current DNC expenditures, I think Pennsylvania and Michigan should be moved to tossup status. It's still too early to say for sure but I don't think 270towin's analysis is accurate at this point.

my experience this past week--- looked in 4 cities Trump yard signs ! first 3 were totally out and waiting for more, the 4th had 4 signs left out of 750 delivered 4 days before ! Republican offices can not keep up with demand--SILENT MAJORITY IS SPEAKING

Well, Fox News says this:

Aren't you the guy who bashes Fox News a lot? If you don't like them, why would you trust their poll?

I can see why Beau would post Fox News in response to my comment since I've certainly posted a lot of Fox's article before. However, this topic asked for my opinion, not Fox's. I posted my opinion above and Fox's poll doesn't really dissuade me from having this opinion. Grouch55's post above makes me even more sure of my opinion. With all of the spam callers nowadays and how most people won't answer a suspected spam caller, I'd be surprised if polls are really as accurate as they purport to be. The same goes for people who actually answer their phones and don't want to be labelled or attacked for their political viewpoint. As grouch55 put it, the silent majority is speaking (on vote day but not necessarily with pollsters).

Not speaking for anyone, but if a network that is commonly perceived as right leaning puts out polls that are against its interest, it's not unreasonable to give those polls a little more weight.

Because someone mistrusted the 270 to win numbers. If that is partisan, even Fox News says this ...

Let's depersonalize this, ok?
