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.

THIS IS BIG FOR US.

And we won't beat around the bush: Our fundraising drive to finish our current budget on June 30 and start our new fiscal year on July 1 is lagging behind where we need it to be.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please consider joining your fellow readers with a donation to help make it all possible. Whether you can pitch in $5 or $500, it all matters.

If you're new to Mother Jones or aren't yet sold on supporting our nonprofit reporting, please take a moment to read Monika Bauerlein's post about our priorities after these chaotic several years, and why this relatively quiet moment is also an urgent one for our democracy and Mother Jones’ bottom line—and if you find it compelling, please join us.
