    I got the go-ahead (I think) from Pointy to post this.

    As we enter the final week of the election, I thought I’d start a thread where we can submit our official guesses for winner of the upcoming contest as well as electoral college result.

    Winner with the identical or closest electoral college result gets colors! Maybe runner-up, too? What say ye, Pointy?

    Here’s a website where you can tinker around with the electoral map.

    Post your map along with predicted winner here. Who is this forum’s keenest, meanest political oracle? Get your bragging rights here!

    I predict an elderly white guy will be declared winner. How I know these things, I'll never tell!

    I just thought I'd go with Biden's best-case scenario for fun.

    You should make a rule that you have to guess the actual winner in order to win. For example, if Trump gets 270, someone who guesses Trump will get 304 again should win over someone who guesses Biden will get 270, even though the latter is closer in terms of electoral votes. Picking the winner should trump picking a close loser.

    boba took my map and my gif, i am left with nothing.

    donald trump will win re-election and STARBOB will be named head admin soon after. appleseed, determined to have been right all along, will be the leader of our resistance. we'll have t-shirts made with the "surely this will do him in" political cartoon on the front.

    I wasn’t clear I know... which puts me in the company of the framers of the Constitution!
