I tweeted this just now:

Only Covid can save America: 75% of deaths are >65yo. Older ppl tend to vote conservative & the most conservative ppl won't get vaxed so 60-70% of future pre-election day ~250k-~500k deaths will be Trumpists, so...Dems win!

Yes, I am predicting a quarter to half a million more Covid related deaths before election day, 2022 (early voting will be curtailed next year by Republicans who may actually be harming their own base's voting totals, so it won't offset that result much). The vaccines aren't working as well against Omicron, but vaccines and boosters still prevent most of the serious sickness and deaths, so people just getting a little sick can still vote. You can't vote if you are in a coma or dead.

Democrats are looking at a "shellacking" due to normal mid-term anti-party-in-power election results, disappointment with Biden, voter suppression and gerrymandering. Only Covid deaths may provide enough cushion in swing states to prevent Republicans from retaking Congress.

Covid is irony.
