Trump was bad enough before, but COVID-19 has brought out previously unseen levels of brainless incompetence in the man. I have high hopes that Biden will win decisively Tuesday, without a long wait before the victor is known.
One year ago: the infamous July 25th phone call. That led to Trump’s impeachment, but few think of it now because we’re neck-deep in the COVID-19 pandemic. Impeachment occurred before the masked age began. He didn’t get removed by the Senate, but he’s quite likely to get removed by voters in the November election. He may not leave the White House voluntarily, which would create a shameful spectacle, but he’ll be escorted away come Inauguration Day — even if they have to literally drag him off, kicking and screaming.
I’m predicting that Joe Biden will win a slim electoral majority, as well as a large popular-vote advantage, over Donald Trump.
In this particular scenario, the swing states all go for Trump, except for Arizona and Florida, which Biden wins. Both Arizona and Florida have large elderly populations, and I don’t think they’re much caring for the way Trump is treating them as disposable people when it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I wonder how many of the other 6,202 people who voted for Bill Weld in the Arkansas Republican primary were doing so simply because they’re allergic to Trump and Trumpism? That reason was good enough for me to proudly say “Republican” when asked which ballot I wanted, even though I more often vote for Democrats in recent years. I don’t pass up a chance to vote against Trump, as directly as possible.
If anyone ever tries to tell me that one vote makes no difference, I’ll refer them to this statistic, along with my previous such vote in 2016. I know exactly how much difference my vote makes.

Please vote, on or before Tuesday, if you oppose Trump and Trumpism.
On the other hand, if you’re a fan of Trump, please remember that your vote is statistically meaningless . . . so you might as well stay home.
I can think of no exceptions to either statement.
There are no guarantees regarding future years.
