Default Vigo County Indiana, the most accurate presidential election predictor in the US

Vigo county, Indiana, has picked all but 2 presidential winners since 1858.

"And when it comes to politics, for them Donald Trump is the only ticket in town."

Trump is up huge there.

You appear to be claiming that Virgo County is going for Trump. But that is not what the linked BBC news article says. At all. The quote you provide is about one family in the town. Yes, Virgo went for Trump in 2016 but the article is not making any such claim that Virgo will vote for Trump over Biden.

I never commented on "Virgo" county at all.

I posted a direct quote from the article. Take it up with them if you do not like it.In 2016, Trump won Indiana (and Vigo) by 19 points.

7 of the 9 congressional districts in the state voted for Republicans in the 2018 midterms.

Both its Senate seats have gone to Republicans in the latest elections.

https://www.politico.com/2020-electi...tions/indiana/

Trump is currently up 8% statewide according to 538
.....

But if you think that means Biden is up there.....this is America, think what you want.

My bad, it's Vigo County. And your direct quote a classic example of taking one sentence out of context. I make no claim of who is up in Vigo, just that you wrongly quoted the article.

The first link didn't work. The 2nd link went to a largely anecdotal story that was poorly written and failed to live up to its title. The 3rd link (Politico) put Indiana as solidly Republican for Trump in 2020. It didn't mention Vigo county but I'd guess that Vigo is prolly solidly Republican for Trump in 2020 also.

The first link is the one the quote i put in the original post came from.

Not sure why it's not working.

Did Vigo take into account the cheating that is anticipated?

There is another similar county in Oregon, that tends to always pick the winner.
