Hillary Rodham Clinton will win and become the first female elected to the presidency in this United States. This prediction is of course based on polls showing with a widening lead over the clown racist, Donald Trump. And, of course, it assumes that there are enough intelligent people who will vote to make it happen. The problem for the future president arises from what is known as "split-ticket" voting.
"Split-ticket" voting comes into play when people vote for one party at the top of the ticket, in this case president, and vote for a different party for the lower races, House and Senate. The professional pundits don't seem to emphasize this aspect of the election when making their bold predictions. As an example, Wisconsin voted for Obama twice for the top job, but elected the pathetic republican Ron Johnson over a Russ Feingold to the Senate. And please don't mention the piece of shit, Scott Walker. Oh crap, I did. Then there is Florida, Obama won twice and then in an non-presidential year, the criminal Rick Scott, the bottom of the sewer was reelected, and Marco Rubio, as pathetic a piece of human waste as there exists. And then in 2010 and 2014 elect someone who is 180 degrees opposed to Obama's policies as was the case of most of the filthy Republican governors reelected in those years?
Back to HRC, she will win assuming she maintains her rabid followers, convinces enough Bernie supporters she is progressive, and convinces the fence-riding independent voters that she is a better choice than Trump. Like I said many voters just ain't too smart. But she is not likely win the House (Demos will need 30 seats) although she has a chance to get the Senate (Demos need 5 seats) with down ballot support.
Once the election is over and Demos don't succeed in the down ballot races, the Repubs will control the House and lets say the Demos win the Senate, her presidency will fail. The House Repub trash will initiate impeachment hearings within six months of her swearing in ceremony. GUARANTEED! The hearings will focus on the failed Benghazi hearings, the FBI's email investigation, and the restarted State Department email investigation. All of it will focus on conflicting statements she made on the record concerning those cases. Finally, upcoming reviews and potential disclosure about the Clinton Foundation will add fodder to the fire.
For her sake, she had better hope like hell that Demos win the Senate or she could be out of office by 2018, just in time for the next off-year election. Reality is a bitch and if you think the Repubs will not try to impeach, then you are living in a fantasy world. Obstruction will continue and we will endure more years of status quo which suits the Repubs and their 1% backers just fine.
Comments to think about.
