M. Ted (inactive) BS: Who will win presidency on Tuesday? (66* d) RE: BS: Who will win presidency on Tuesday? 05 Nov 00

Before I predict, let me say a few things-First, it didn't take a rocket scientist to pick the last election--and, for all of you who comment on the fact that we have two rich boys to chose from, don't forget that last time, we had two poor boys to choose from--

Next, GW's only claim to fame is that he is the son of a president that we voted out of office, he has no major issues, and the economy is great--Gore has made no major mistakes, and there is no Willie Horton ad (GW, incidentally, was the driving force behind that)

Pretend that you never heard word one about any polls, who would you pick? And remember that the only polls that count are the ones where people vote--

All that said, I pick Gore--and by a surprising margin--(Bush may fall as low as 37%, which is the magic number that Bush Sr. hit(if I remember correctly) and Bob Dole (the only presidential candidate to publically acknowledge what most of us suspected--that Republicans can't get it up), and corresponds to the approximate percentage of registered Republicans--

California will go Gore--forget that Bush spent 5 million on TV ads, remember Michael Huffington! Florida will go Gore, as will Michigan and PA--

Ralph Nader will fall way short of his 5%,(I say about 2%), but the Green Party will elect a number of local candidates, most noteably in DC, which will make DC statehood a hot issue--

After this, the crystal is dark again--
