You are probably itching to know what I think about the election, aren’t you? Fine. Here are my predictions:

  • Voting will be a little rockier than usual, but will go relatively smoothly.
  • Biden will win.
  • Democrats will take the Senate.
  • Trump will never give a concession speech.
  • Post-election legal maneuvers will be minimal.

Basically, I think Trump will be crushed like a bug and will be forced to shuffle off to Mar-a-Lago to rant and rave from the sidelines for the rest of his life. I’m looking forward to that.

As for Trumpism in general, I think it would be better to call it Foxism. I don’t think it will go away in the Republican Party until something happens to Fox and the rest of the conservative talk-entertainment empire. Defeating that will be considerably harder than defeating Trump himself.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
