Election Prediction

I predict that Biden will win election in the sense that voters who voted, or tried to cast their vote, for him will outnumber those who voted, or tried to cast their vote, for Trump in a sufficient number of states to give Biden the 270 electoral votes he needs to prevail.

What I cannot predict is whether Biden will become president of the United States on January 20th. That’s because this election is not so much between Biden and Trump, as between American democracy and autocracy. Supporting democracy is a clear majority of voters. Supporting autocracy are Trump, Pence, the attorney general and many of his underlings, other cabinet members, virtually every Republican who is a member of Congress, the vast majority of Republican members of state governments, many judges of lower courts and, there is reason to believe, as many as five justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.
