Harry Truman was expected to lose the presidential election in 1948 but he fooled the experts.
San Francisco Bay Area political activist Karla Gottschalk is predicting that Donald Trump may be about to add his name to the list of people who have scored notable upset victories.
Journalists who are preparing to crank out detailed explanations and analysis stories about the election of the first woman president should temper their enthusiasm and never say never before the results have been certified.
Extensive polling indicates that Hillary Clinton is very likely to become the first woman to be elected president of the United States (are pollsters permitted to make wagers on political events?).
Professional athletes are not permitted to make wagers on sports events but it seems that a large number of Jet fans may want to place a bet on Donald Trump to score an upset victory on Tuesday.
Rumors are hinting that Hillary is going to appoint Joe Biden as Secretary of State.
It is almost certain that Donald Trump wont "
But sports fans know it aint over"till the fat lady sings. (Just ask any Cubbies fan!)
If Karla becomes the only pundit predicting an upset win perhaps the audience for her political punditry column will increase exponentially.
Shouldn't cautious journalists get some credit for a heads up warning? By next weekend, most pundits will ignore any botched predictions they issued and will start focusing on the question "who are the front runners for the 2020 presidential elections?".
According to Karla, in the last debate, Hillary said we are going to war and Trump said he would talk to Putin so Karla is dubbing Trump the Peace Candidate and saying that he will appeal to more voters who are war weary now.
