Fudge, what bet have you got on?
A spread bet or a single bet on a specific result?
Just read that this election is the biggest market Betfair have ever had.
Equivalent to 40 grand nationals.

Just checking… there’s 538 electoral college votes, for “Trump to win by 320+“ he’d need to win 429 of them, which would give Biden just 109 (I.e. 429 + 109 = 538 and 429 - 109 = 320).

Are you sure you don’t mean Trump to win more than 320 college votes?

Why are British Conservative-leaning folks starting to lick Trump's arse like he's any better than Biden morally or politically? Lots of the current criticisms of Biden are routed in his political mistakes of the past i.e. Crime Bills in the 90s and past comments re race, whem Trump has a proven history of being less open to renting to black people (and those on welfare), telling American-born congresswomen to go back to their own countries based purely on the colour of their skin, referring to Native Americans as 'Indians. I'm also pretty sure he said something about Nigerians not wanting to 'return to their huts' after seeing America.

Now, I'm not saying Joe Biden is clean as a whistle nor anywhere near perfect to be a US president. But let's be frank, they're all shitbags,and they're all corrupt. Trump just happens to be an insufferable orange racist as well. His shithousery, fat mouth, and frank/insensitive way of wording things stirs up far-right support which he 'denounces' so very flimsily, without an ounce of sincerity. E.g. When asked to denounce the Proud Boys, he simply stated "stand by". What does 'stand by'mean? Wait, and continue being a far-right racist fuck later on.

I’ve got quite a few individual bets on Trump to win outright, plus electoral college votes for him and how many Biden will get plus some on Trump winning Michigan, Florida and North Carolina…

I’m not Turkish - and I can’t stand Erdogan. Despot. Needs to be ousted via a successful coup this time.

Red wave much?

Salty?

You really are angry but when I’ve actually called you out, you hid behind your pathetic wine cabinet you pussy.

Either man up and let’s talk face to face or fuck off down the bottom of a cheap bottle of plonk.

no matter what it looks like a close race and that means even if dems win it's a big let down for them and many people in the party that think they went with the wrong game plan and candidates

im happy no matter what, this is going to bolster progressive voices and transform the party at a faster pace

I don’t think you realise that the reason Biden will lose is because they’ve dragged him left. He was just the acceptable face. They’re ready to bring the socialists forward but America will never be socialist. Get that through your head.

What game plan? Keep Joe hidden in the basement so he can’t make as many gaffes? Pick a ‘woman of colour’ as his running mate when she was one of the first eliminated in the Primaries? Not to mention becoming even more nauseating than Hillary which is a feat in itself. None of it made sense because they spent 4 years trying to unseat Trump instead of working on themselves and becoming the party they once were.

See: Corbyn and his time as Labour leader.
