US Presidential Election Prediction – Updated July 31 2016

March 31 2016

The GOP

Donald Trump.  Ok there I said it.  Just once because for the rest of this narrative he is going to be called whatshisname.  Enough has already been said about whatshisname.  whatshisname says he will make America great again. Personally, I did not think America was not great. Now or ever.

Jeb Bush was the initial favorite. whatshisname took over and that’s been about it, you know the rest.

Ted Cruz. Not sure if this guy is presidential material, him being batshit crazy and all.

John Kasich. The dark horse? Nah, this guy wants to be vice president, so will stick it out. Probably the sanest of the three Republican candidates left.

The Democrats

Bernie Sanders is maybe too far left of center for the United States right now.  Don’t think you should rock the boat too hard: You do not want to shake up the rednecks and establishment.

Hilary Clinton seems to have the right resume for the job, but some of her past seems a bit shady. While it would be refreshing to finally have a woman as the POTUS, I don’t think she should become president simply because she is a woman. Is she the best woman for the job?  Without a doubt, she is certainly the most qualified.  The best person? Possibly, but isn’t she a lawyer?

My Prediction

whatshisname is too old, has the biggest mouth, talks without a filter and can lie like a bastard. A serious candidate for sensitivity training. He is blowing smoke up our collective asses when talking about a southern wall on the border with Mexico. Do the math for the engineering, land costs, materials, logistics and maintenance.  And expecting Mexico to pay, which is laughable.

But whatshisname wants to balance trade, wants universal health care and is a natural leader. And whatshisname is not, to the best of my knowledge, a lawyer.

I predict whatshisname will win the 2016 Presidential Election.

This is not  an endorsement for whatshisname.  But he makes me laugh. Out loud.  Seriously, the guy is a comedian.

Finally

As for becoming POTUS, it must really takes a lot of time, money, and luck (?) to get the most stressful job in the world.  I wonder. Maybe it’s for the free vacations on Airforce One or the free rent and meals at the Whitehouse. Or maybe thinking long term: writing a book (“I Bucked the Odds and Survived 8 Years in the Whitehouse” seems like a good title), or the speaking engagements after your gig is up.

As a Canadian, I cannot participate in the American election.

Update July 31 2016

Well I was dead wrong about Kasich wanting to become vice-president.

And wasn’t Cruz’s convention speech awesome?

Clinton sure dodged a bullet with that email thingy. Instead of being locked up, she locked up the nomination as the first female to make the big show.

I still don’t really like whatshisname, but still predict he will win.  Is it true that a major US network and whatshisname are working on a new show in the fall called Campaign Apprentice?  Could be Fox or The Comedy Network, not sure.
