I can't... won't give consideration to Trump actually winning another term; current electoral college projections suggest Trump just can't reach the magic number!

of course the key will be if the Democratic Party can gain control of the Senate (retaining the House seems a lock).

Based on polling, sure it looks like Biden has this locked up.

But what of voter suppression?

Biden should win Arizona, Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. That'll lock him up the the vote. He can lose one of those (maybe) and still get 270.

Then he's in play for Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, Iowa and Ohio. He steals any of those states from Trump then Trump needs to sweep the rest of the battleground states.

So the numbers are good. But you can't convince MAGAHeads that the polls aren't wrong. And what if any votes counted after Election Day are contested in the, soon-to-be, 6-3 SCOTUS?

Turnout is key, and with Voter Suppression tactics, who knows if all the votes even get counted on election day. I'm hopeful too, but nothing is certain.

As for the Senate. It's tough.  The Dems should steal Arizona, Colorado and Main from the GOP. But will the GOP steal Alabama back?

That leaves tight races in Montana, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia for the Dems to try and win. Also, Lindsey Graham in South Carolina is in big trouble. Those are all "Red States" that the Dems have to break through. It's tough.
