Let's get this out there, so everyone that is wrong can eat crow and have it all in a neat little thread on display for everyone. Post your political prediction and come November 8th, let's see who eats crow. If you want, you can post electoral predictions as well.

I predict FL, GA, NC, AZ, UT, NV, IA, OH, CO, and NH will go Trump
So 279+ Trump victory

MI, PA, and WI could be surprise turns for Trump as well but I don't have any confidence in this.

I will gladly come back here to this thread November 8th and eat crow and admit to my incorrect statements if that ends up being the case. Will you do the same if you're wrong?

I posted a prediction about 3-4 months ago (if not more), I'm trying to find it and dig it out; I'll repost it here.

Eating crow is important for everyone.

I predict America will disgrace itself by electing a complete embarrassment to the Presidency on November 8th.

About the only one in my map here I would say is "controversial" is Florida. She will get it, but I could be wrong. Otherwise, this is the map I would bet on.

I predict Clinton will win. I do not think it will be close.

If I am wrong and Trump wins, I will not be eating crow but Poutine.

My eldest brother is in Montreal. No worry, but if anything were to really happen, it would be my stop on the way Reykjavik Iceland.

Yea. I have a friend who lived there for a bit. Never stopped yammering about till I was convinced.

When I was in my 20's I was hot on moving to Greece. Had a lot of to with an infatuation I had with a Greek girl, regardless I was so damn close to taking a contract. Happy I'm not there now

So many pros and cons to everywhere. I'm only a fan of 2 things now: football and history. So many want to compare us to other places, they've never been to. Every place has flaws. I'll state emphatically the American experiment at humanity is the best to this point.

Reality? I default to Ragnar: Who wants to be king?!?

I'm concerned about a polling error, so I went with very, very conservative numbers.
Clinton 272-266 Trump
http://www.270towin.com...

Clinton wins NH (this one shouldn't even really be a toss-up) and WI (not really a toss-up either), and loses every other swing state and all the split votes, but still comes out on top. It's easy enough for Trump to make this election close. It's really, REALLY hard for him to win it, though.

That's what would happen if it was a tie.

Also, in that case, the senate votes on the VP. Could be Trump/Kaine for four years!

The only one I missed was NV. Which was very close (23,000 votes). Way closer than the pundits predicted with the early turnout numbers.

Wow, just about spot on. I correctly called the Trumpslide, but NC & NV went Dem and WI, IN & MI went Rep. Managed to call FL, OH and PA correctly, though.
