The BIG day has finally arrived and there is nervous tension everywhere.
Hang in there, Baby – it’s almost over.
I can’t tell you how many emails and PM’s I have received over the past 48 hours from panicking people asking for a prognostication.
Sorry, I don’t have one. That’s not me being chicken. That’s my very real and honest answer. I have no clue what is going to happen today/tonight.
Most of the polls I reviewed before the show this morning are leaning to Hillary. Fox News has her up 4. Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight says, “The polls clearly agree that Clinton is the favorite, and perhaps has a slight wind at her back for Election Day.” He puts her chances at 70%.
Donald Trump announced his candidacy on June 18, 2015, and since then all of the political class has been at a loss for a place to put him. Is he conservative or liberal, is he for trade or against it? What about single-payer, does he or does he not favor it? The political smartheads haven’t been able to get their brains around who and what Trump is or what he means to his followers.
I’m no political aficionado, but I think that the people who have backed Trump have done so as a finger in the eye of the liberal political apparatus. I just don’t believe his followers were analyzing his positions down to the smallest detail.
He was sticking it to the ruling class, and that’s been too long coming. And proving his critics wrong he stayed in it to the very last minute, even having a rally after midnight on Election Day.
He said, “Now go vote – I did my thing, now it’s your turn to do yours.”
I don’t know who the next President will be, but I do know this one thing.
Although this election is extremely important for the future of our nation as the next President will choose one or more Supreme Court justices who will shape our nation forever – this election will not remove God from His throne, nor will it cause the world to end today. Not unless that was His plan anyway.
Our country has been through some major events from civil war to terrorists attacks, and we have always done what we do. We go back to work to care for our families and our communities. In short, we get on with life.
Lord willing, a new day will dawn tomorrow, and Lord willing, I will be at work. How about you?
