Middle class and silent majority are voting for Trump, in secret
I've been calling this presidential election the "Michael Dukakis election of 2020" for months now -- all through the summer, when Joe Biden was up by double digits, just like Dukakis.
That was before Rudy Giuliani announced he had Hunter Biden's infamous laptop with a treasure trove of emails that appeared to implicate Joe Biden in a massive pay-for-play conspiracy and identify Biden as "the big guy" -- a partner in business with the Chinese Communist Party.
That was before Hunter Biden's former business partner Tony Bobulinski announced he can prove Biden had a piece of all the dirty deals. He's now meeting with the FBI.
That was before President Donald Trump dominated Joe Biden in Thursday night's presidential debate.
That was before Joe Biden announced in that debate that he plans to destroy the oil industry. Biden just lost every oil and energy state (see Pennsylvania) and the votes of millions of oil-industry employees.
Back to Michael Dukakis. Remember him? In 1988, he was the Democratic presidential candidate. He led Republican candidate George H.W. Bush by 17 points over the summer. Seventeen. Remember that number. It's significant.
On Election Day, Bush destroyed Dukakis. Bush won by 7 points. That's a 24-point turnaround. More importantly, Bush beat Dukakis in an electoral landslide of 426 to 111. Bush won 40 states.
Think about that for a moment: down by 17 and then winning in close to a 4-to-1 electoral landslide.
That's pretty close to what I predict is about to happen in this Trump-Biden race.
Keep in mind as I make this prediction that almost every poll still shows a big lead for Biden. Still, Politico reports a massive Democratic early-vote lead in swing states. Still, Peggy Noonan writes in the Wall Street Journal that Biden "has a formidable lead." Still, the Biden team is measuring curtains for the White House -- just like Hillary Clinton and Dukakis did. The Wall Street Journal wrote in a headline, "Biden Team Prepares for Potentially Bumpy Transition." The D.C. Swamp "experts" clearly believe it's over.
