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.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and it's truly crunch time: About 15 percent of our yearly online giving usually comes in during the final week of the year, and in "No Cute Headlines or Manipulative BS," we explain why we simply can't afford to come up short right now.

The bottom line: Corporations and powerful people with deep pockets will never sustain the type of journalism Mother Jones exists to do. And advertising or profit-driven ownership groups will never make time-intensive, in-depth reporting viable.

That's why donations big and small make up 74 percent of our budget this year. There is no backup to keep us going, no alternate revenue source, no secret benefactor. If readers don’t donate, we won’t be here. It's that simple.

And if you can help us out with a donation right now, all online gifts will be matched thanks to an incredibly generous matching gift pledge.
