    Clinton: 352
    Trump: 186

    1. Clinton 49% Trump 43%
    2. 126 million
    3. Nope

    AZ -- Shocker! Clinton pulls it out by 1 vote (Contradicting their expressed positions in the JCC, Wocky provides the tying vote, R10 gives her the vote that puts her over, thus denying Wocky's chance to save Obama's legacy while, at the same time, making R10 responsible for Hillary's presidential victory in AZ), record Hispanic turnout and the anti-Arpaio vote helps too!
    CO -- Easy victory for Hillary
    FL -- Record turnout among Hispanics who make up 25% of the population make up for lower turnout among Blacks who make up 17%, plus FL has Special Agent X working there!
    MI -- They haven't forgotten the auto bailout
    NC -- Most overlooked story of the election: the huge shift in college-educated whites more than counteracts lower African-American turnout
    NV -- The voters re-enact the 2012 election
    OH -- Another shocker! Large numbers of mostly white depressed Indians fans fail to show up to vote! Lebron's endorsement brings another victory!
    VA -- Why are we pretending this is a swing state anymore?

    4th Tie-Breaker:

    Will Donald Trump concede if he loses the presidency?


    Possible answers:

    --Yes, he will concede to the best of his ability given that he suffers from at least a few personality disorders.
    --Kinda, as he will give a concession full of doublespeak: "Maybe, it's possible Hillary won. I don't know, but we can never know because the system is rigged and the media is out to get me. I'll have my best people look into the results, and look there's a mosquito. I hate mosquitoes..."
    --No, he will not concede. He will claim he won the election and it was stolen from him.


    My answer: Kinda, a concession full of double-talk

    I feel like the tossups at this point are:
    - Florida
    - N. Carolina
    - Ohio

    Resounding but not overwhelming Clinton victory

    The next president of the United States: Hillary Rodham Clinton

    Clinton: 48%
    Trump: 43%

    114,000,000 votes cast.

    Libertarian Candidate Gary Johnson to just barely get 5% nationally

    We'll close entries at around 9 am ET tomorrow. I'll post sometime around then, once polls are open, to avoid tempting fate.

    A kind forum traveler pointed out to me that I have Hawaii going red, which is of course an oversight on my part. It should read as blue, and so my real total should be 368 electoral votes for Clinton, not 364.

    I'm glad I was able to find some humor in that post, both before and after.

    Looks pretty safe to say that no one won.
