If you were to bet money on the election...


Recommended Posts

The most I would bet on this election is $5.  I still think it can go either way, but I'd put my money on Trump.  From what I saw on CNN today, it looks like a Trump landslide with the map they had up.  It's 2020, and the strangest year in my life so it could easily go to Biden.

Trump wins, hands down .....  I lost a lot of money on a pretty big stock play, anticipatipating a possible Hilldabeast upset over Donald Trump in 2016 .... the stock I bought lost about 2/3 of it's value before I gave up and sold it hoping it would rebound .... it's the only big market play that ever backfired on me .....

Come on how? Geez 

How? Well, my best guess is that Pres Trump will not hold all of the mid-western battleground states that he won last time. Instead of sweeping Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Ohio like he did in 2016 it is more likely imo that this time he takes two and Joe takes two. Then, either Florida, Arizona or Georgia goes blue putting Biden around 300 electoral votes (I have not done the exact math). Trump needs to flip a couple of states that went to Hillary last time and I just dont see that being likely. Like I said...hope I am wrong. If nothing else I would like to see Trump win just to watch the lefts heads explode. Although if he does win I feel sorry for the business owners that are going to have their property looted and burned because dems did not get the outcome they believe they are entitled to.

I have disagree . Pennsylvania most likely going red after that fracking comment in the debate. Usually civil unrest goes to the incumbent. Florida will come to their senses and there is talk of Arizona and California flipping. I don’t think it happens but nice to think about . New York should be Democrat but being on lockdown might change some things. The Big 10 will win this election.

Great post, I hope trump wins. The boarding of the windows across cities in the country make me think Trump will win.

Interesting that you point that out about New York, and I haven't thought about that aspect.  Most of the liberals in New York live in New York City.  I've seen this in other articles, but didn't want to go through pages of google to find it.  https://www.quora.com/If-New-York-City-were-cut-from-New-York-state-would-New-York-state-be-a-red-state .  So I think Trump does have a chance of taking New York as a state.

He also a fellow New Yorker and the leadership there is corrupt as you can get. Not many folks are in favor of these lockdowns.

Sounds like you might have been playing penny stocks, you should try options if you have not already, they offer far more leverage. The market did rally today because of Biden though, it was the biggest rally post election since 1900...

Penny stocks are for small time chumps like you libtards ... I have bought and sold stock options off and in for 30 years and have done quite well ... amateurs concern themselves with short term market shifts .... I make money no matter which way the market is moving ..... there is a lot more than money at stake that I am concerned about ....

You can call me whatever you want, but it doesn't change the fact the market long term actually doesn't care who is president, but who is the chairman of the Fed. The reason for the rally yesterday and today was because of less uncertainty. I do trade everyday using options, I have been for nearly 10 years now, so you hedge? That's good you hedge. The depression that is likely to ensue from the end of the debt bubble and covid being the catalyst for the pop and liquidity crisis, it hurt the zombie companies a ton. The US is in terrible shape and no president can fix that.

Yes, our nation is in terrible shape ... and I'm not talking about monetarily  ....  it has turned away from God ... it  will get much worse if it's governed by corrupt liberal dimocrats .... President Trump, though he bas brash and boisterous, actually for the most part stood for things that held this nation together. He was falsely called a racist and white supremacist  ....  all because the corrupt dimocrats wanted power ....  well, if they get it, God help us as a nation  ....

Amazing commentary as you have always appeared to me to be the least religious, least spiritual man on here. Bless your heart.
