He will graciously inform us if my memory fails me, but I believe Blinky Bill nearly perfectly predicted the 2020 electoral college map. His only miss was Georgia, the state set to have the narrowest margin of victory in the country. Unfortunately, the image link he provided in the comments section of the election prediction post is broken. It’s not foul play on account of his prediction besting mine, which was identical to his with the exception of Wisconsin, which I also missed. I didn’t do it, I swear!

Augury honorable mentions include Anatoly Karlin (missed only Arizona and Georgia), Irishman (missed Georgia and North Carolina) and Haruto Rat (missed Minnesota and Wisconsin).

The RCP polling average performed quite well with regards to predicting the winner by state (if less impressively when it came to assessing margins of victory). The only states the polling missed were Florida and Georgia. The PredictIt state markets also fared well, missing only Arizona and Georgia.

  1. AE,

    You are a little premature with the call. Or, is this only an intermediate result?

    Currently, the map looks like this: (1)
     

    Based on actual results and accounting for states currently recounting or states with election issues now in the courts, President Trump is in the lead in the 2020 Presidential Election.

    When accounting for the court cases related to all the fraud:

    — The President has 13 different roads to win the election
    — Biden only has 10 avenues to win the election
    — There are actually 3 ways that the election could end up in a tie

    Additionally, Trump flipped both the NH Senate and NH House to GOP control. It is hard to believe that he lost New Hampshire even though that result is not being formally contested.
    ____

    Georgia Senate Run-off Prognostication (05-JAN-2021)

    As a direct result of the activity by DNC controlled Fulton County, GOP controlled areas will step up to the new election standard. There will be multiple rounds of “Fultoning” (a.k.a. Discovering By Surprise) mail-in ballots across the state during the post-election period. Both sides will keep “voting” for their candidates long after election day.

    Due to wide spread “Fultoning”, the total reported votes in the Georgia Runoff will *exceed* the number of Registered Voters in Georgia. The two GOP Senate candidates will “win(?)” with an amazing over 100% voter turnout.

  3. I believe my prediction was 2nd best. I also got 2 wrong, FL and GA. For EVs, I was Biden +14 versus actual. Irishman should be first, he got the EV count dead on.

    https://www.unz.com/anepigone/2020-presidential-election-predictions/#comment-4260151

    Haruto was Biden -20, Karlin was off by 27.

    Thus the ranking should be

    1. Irishman
    2. Lot
    3. haruto
    4. AK

    I can’t see Blinky’s so no comment there. Assuming he was right on all but GA, that’s still off 16 EVs. That creates a philosophical question of whether it is better to flip two equal states and get the margin right like Irishman or just 1 state but get the margin fairly wrong.

    @Lot

    Seems it is better to look at each state individually.

    If we just go with total elector votes, that means if Jack got every single state correct except for picking Biden in North Carolina he is off a net of 30 EC votes. Meanwhile Adam misses North Carolina (Biden), Georgia (Trump), Ohio (Biden), and Pennsylvania (Trump). Despite missing four states, he is only off a net of 6 EC votes. By EC score, Adam did five times better than Jack on account of his four misses balancing each other out, but I think Jack's map is a lot more impressive.

    , @Irishman
    @Lot

    Thank you Lot and Audacious Epigone.

    The polls were giving Republicans nothing in North Carolina until Cal Cunningham was caught diddling another mans wife. The reason I called Georgia wrong and Florida right was the 2018 mid terms. The polls got them wrong and they looked so narrow this time too that I suspected a Trump win. Given Trump barely won Northern states last time I didn't think he could withstand any weakness with whites and he couldn't except in Ohio and Iowa which are the new Missouris. And I didn't give him NC and AZ because the polls there were almost uniformly dire.

    While I'm at it let me suggest a theory why Trump won in 2016 and came close in 2020. It's the Republican party. I suspect Trump rode the coat-tails of the Republicans in both elections not the other way around while Trump was an albatross for Republicans in 2018. I say this who agrees in general with his policy stances and would give his right arm to be able to vote for someone like him sans personality and baggage in my country. Most of this strength is probably the toxicity of the Democrats but it would probably be easier for Republicans to de-Trump than it would be for the Democrats to become un-Woke. Pence would have won this election and handily. So I think the future doesn't look bad for Republicans though hardly bright.

    Given how uniform across the country the results are I think Biden won legitimately(and if there was mass cheating every Republican governor plus Trump is unfit to hold office on grounds of incompetence) though I know enough about postal voting in the UK to put an asterisk on the popular vote totals.

    Unless you specifically factored in fraud, no prizes to you. I believes Barnes took profits before the fraud, specifically because of the fraud risk.

  11. I stand by my earlier prediction. I was right on the legal votes, and only missed due to blatant fraud not yet fully adjudicated or certified by a duly appointed slates of electors from the states. Of course I still believe the South will rise again. 😉

  12. If white election workers had treated black poll-watchers like white poll-watchers were treated by blacks in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Milwaukee, it would have been a HUGE controversy. If white election workers had erected barriers preventing black poll-watchers from observing the vote tallying, it would have been world news. Under Jewish Supremacist power, blacks are allowed to get away with anything.

    With Jews, whites lose… but whites suck up to Jews most.

  15. I don’t recognize the election as morally legitimate, no matter what the results were.

    Isn't that pretty much the universal belief these days? Regardless of their political orientation nobody recognises election results as legitimate unless their guy wins.

    Biden supporters believe the election was free and fair because Biden won. Trump supporters believe the election was outrageously unfair because Trump lost. There really isn't any more to it than that.

    If Trump had won Democrats would be complaining about widespread election fraud. And Trump supporters would be dismissing such claims as nonsense.

Given Trump barely won Northern states last time I didn't think he could withstand any weakness with whites and he couldn't except in Ohio and Iowa which are the new Missouris. And I didn't give him NC and AZ because the polls there were almost uniformly dire.

    While I'm at it let me suggest a theory why Trump won in 2016 and came close in 2020. It's the Republican party. I suspect Trump rode the coat-tails of the Republicans in both elections not the other way around while Trump was an albatross for Republicans in 2018. I say this who agrees in general with his policy stances and would give his right arm to be able to vote for someone like him sans personality and baggage in my country. Most of this strength is probably the toxicity of the Democrats but it would probably be easier for Republicans to de-Trump than it would be for the Democrats to become un-Woke. Pence would have won this election and handily. So I think the future doesn't look bad for Republicans though hardly bright.

    Given how uniform across the country the results are I think Biden won legitimately(and if there was mass cheating every Republican governor plus Trump is unfit to hold office on grounds of incompetence) though I know enough about postal voting in the UK to put an asterisk on the popular vote totals.

    Not sure I follow. In 2018, without Trump on the ballot, Republicans did poorly. They did better in 2016 and 2020, when he was on the ballot.

    The Borg is too invested in the results as presented to even entertain any changes in the electoral outcome.
