A Trump Landslide Coming Our Way; Possible Shot at 334 to 420 Electoral Votes
By J.C. Hawkins - November 2, 2020
We’ve reached the decision point, Election Day, 2020, tomorrow. Of course, already an estimated one hundred million votes have been cast in early voting.
For the folks on The Forgotten Street, Main Street USA, it will be vindication of the faith they placed in political outsider Donald J. Trump in 2016. As bad a whipping as Hillary Clinton endured, Joe Biden is about to get much worse.
In our estimation, President Trump (we love the sound of that) will hold all the states he won in 2016. That includes Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Florida. Such a result puts him at a baseline of 306 electoral votes, well past the 270 needed to win re-election.
What remains to be seen is what new states he can pick off to make the margin of victory even more dramatic. We believe it’s within the realm of possibility he could flip six of the states won by Hillary Clinton. They are: California (55); Connecticut (7) Minnesota (10); Nevada (6); New Mexico (5); New York (31). If he could sweep all six with their 114 electoral votes, he would rack up an electoral vote total of 420, certainly one of the biggest election victories ever.
Now, I know some of you out there are saying, “California, New York, has J.C. Hawkins lost his mind?”
Given the absolute mess Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo have made of those two states with their draconian Chinese Virus lockdowns, there’s no underestimating the absolute level of disgust residents feel there. A Trump win in either or both is certainly a possibility.
In the Nutmeg State, Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont has channeled his Communist ancestors, and created a booming movement for Trump supporters statewide in response to his totalitarian rules. The outbreak of Trump flotillas and Trump Train car parades shows their level of frustration is off the charts.
Minnesota is a case all its own. Governor Tim Walz and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey let the mobs run wild, destroying businesses and neighborhoods. They’ve unleashed a backlash of huge proportions. So much so that U.S. Senator Tina Smith could well lose her seat to Jason Lewis, adding to the GOP majority.
New Mexico hasn’t gotten a lot of discussion, but the fracking industry has existed there for 50 years. Overall, the oil and gas industry provides 134,000 jobs, 12% of the state total. The industry pays 25% of all state and local taxes.
More than $7.6 billion in income is generated by the oil and gas industry in New Mexico. It’s grown 125% since 2010, and is expected to grow another 85% by 2030.
For New Mexicans, a Biden-Harris Administration would be an economic catastrophe. Those five electoral votes are headed to the Trump total.
Governor Steve Sisolak of Nevada has adopted the attitude of a Central American tinpot dictator in handling the Chinese Virus. His draconian decrees and the state’s slow reopening undoubtedly could cause Nevada voters to join the Trump Train.
Much has been made of the fact Republicans have to fight to keep a number of U.S. Senate seats in order to hold onto their majority. Little attention has been paid to the Democrat seats that might be flipped to offset any GOP losses (Alabama, Michigan, Minnesota).
What remains to be seen is how much of a coattail effect President Trump might generate in those states he wins, where senate seats are up for grabs.
Yet, holding the Senate might be a bittersweet victory if Republicans remain the minority party in the House of Representatives. Those races are much harder to call because of the level of research needed to make an intelligent analysis.
It’s clear, however, that some Democrat House members in tight races are extremely upset with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s refusal to make a deal on additional stimulus relief for Americans who’ve lost jobs or income because of the lockdowns. It’s made their election prospects much shakier.
As it stands right now, the Democrats hold 233 seats to 196 for Republicans. There are five vacancies, including four previously held by the GOP and one by Democrats.
In order for Republicans to take back control of the House with 218, and make Kevin McCarthy of California the next Speaker, the GOP needs to flip 18 seats and keep the four currently vacant.
It’s a tough order, but certainly in the realm of possibility. Again, a strong coattail effect from a surging President Trump could be enough to carry the day.
What’s truly concerning is we may not know the outcome tomorrow night. With the large number of mail-in and absentee votes, the count in critical states could be delayed to the point that television networks won’t make any final calls.
Adding to this dilemma is the fact that the traditional exit polling done on in-person voting won’t provide reliable enough information, given the mail-in vote. The only offset here might be the number of votes yet to be counted may not be enough to sway an election from the vote totals announced tomorrow night.
The ultimate “Joker in the Deck” is what shenanigans The Deep State and Democrats might pull to generate election-day chaos to keep people away from the polls.
We’ll certainly look back on 2020 as the most unusual election in our lifetime. Yet, we ultimately may look back at it as the day when everyday Americans rejected The Great Offset proposed by globalists and cemented America First as the prevailing governing doctrine for decades ahead.
Go vote tomorrow to Make America Great Again and to Keep America Great! The Best is Yet to Come!
