[Q&A] Political Predictions Repository

Pages

Want to make your mark and be GWJ famous?

This is a place to deposit political predictions you'd like to make in public, so that they can be easily found and referenced in the future. Thus, it is not a discussion thread; discussions of predictions should take place in other threads as conversations proceed. Explicit clarification questions and answers are fine, but "Why do you think that?" expositions should occur elsewhere so as not to clutter the repository. Predictions should be narrowly defined; testable with publicly available information at all times; have an explicit date range; and refer to events, people and places explicitly so as to leave no doubt of resolution; and they should be numbered sequentially so that they are easier to find at later dates. Edits must be clearly marked and original text preserved through the use of strike-throughs if the prediction is modified. Please avoid the use of generalities - "The President will change his mind on this topic" is less useful than "The President will change his policy from yes to no on this topic", because the latter prevents a tiny change from being claimed as success. Failed predictions should be marked in bold at the top of the post via an edit, leaving the rest intact.

26. All of these bad things are blamed on anyone who supported Sanders prior to the DNC Primary. It won't matter that the bulk of them will have thrown their support behind whomever gets the nomination and urged others to get out the vote in November. Clearly anyone who supported Sanders at any point was birthed by an alcoholic drug-addict so they have brain damage.
26.1 Several folks in this community will continue their hypocritical nastiness. A few more members will finally hit their breaking point at the hypocrisy and fade away as well.

I'll pop in to check in again come December/January to see if things have improved, but it's been four years with no change so I find it highly doubtful. Sure, we've always had our divides, but 2016 put a particularly nasty fracture within the progressive/liberal community members of GWJ and clearly it hasn't mended yet. I don't know how folks like DSGamer and Bekkilyn have put up with it. I suspect my anxiety/depression spiralling completely out of control in late 2016/early 2017 and only worsening since then has something to do with it.

We've been seeing this retort since 2016 and while it is a valid point, it belies the fact that its Trump, and not some reasonable alternative candidate. After all we've been through with the mini me despot, that percentage better be less than the ~4% margin of error.
