This prediction comes from paying attention to the polls and the trending opinions from the 50 states. Still, there are worst case and best case scenarios for both candidates.

Suppose Donald Trump’s last minute dash to Minnesota and Michigan pay off. And suppose Clinton’s optimism in North Carolina and Florida are misplaced. Suppose Trump wins Nevada, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Wisconsin.

Winner, Trump in a landslide.screen-shot-2016-11-07-at-9-36-57-pm

Or, if it goes the other way and Clinton snags Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Florida and North Carolina?

Landslide, Clinton.

Punditry is a dangerous business. But at the moment, we feel our scenario of Secretary Clinton winning 317-221 makes the most sense.

However it turns out, the real work starts on Wednesday as the winner begins to try to pull together a fractured nation.

Retired from his position as a writer/editor at the National Institutes of Health, Bill Schmalfeldt saw the willingness of a cadre of right wing idiots to destroy the life of an ex-con who had re-entered public life having served his time. He spoke out against this pack of hyenas and paid for it with false attacks on his own reputation and filthy, foul and profane mockery surrounding the death of his wife in 2015. Unbroken, Bill continues to write for Breitbart Unmasked and his private blog, http://theclintoniconoclast.com -- He now lives a quiet life in his hometown of Clinton, Iowa, doing a daily afternoon air shift at MAC 94.7 FM in the city of his birth.
