Ol’ Sparky predicts 2020 election results!

or next year’s, as the case may be.

Well before today, Blaska Policy Werkes intended to forecast Tuesday’s election results or, at least, to postmark them by midnight.

As we were moving to our temporary rural retreat, Ol’ Sparky (our Eisenhower-era mainframe computer) blew off the roof rack of the pickup truck and tumbled down an embankment, a half-mile from its destination.

You read about farm folk pitching in to bring in the crops for a neighbor hospitalized with terminal scrofula. Anyone? Where are the Amish barn builders — their womenfolk making really heavy food over a hot wood stove — when you really need them?

Location of wreck off to the right

Sparky still sits off the road to the right.

So there it sits, at the edge of a manure lagoon, covered in a tarp during the busiest time of the year. A family of raccoons has taken up residence inside the rusting contraption. Then our landlord we call “Corn Pop” (the guy who looks like Dick Cheney in a seed corn cap) came to the rescue!

He drove his classic Allis Chalmers G down to the accident site and hooked up the power take-off to Ol’ Sparky. As he revved up the tiny tractor, the head groundskeeper squirted diethyl-ether starter fluid into the ancient computer. By gosh and by golly (as they say around here), the damn thing coughed twice, spat out a bushel basket of carbon, then sprung to life with a mighty roar! (At that point we learned that voles had also infested Ol’ Sparky.)

While the unlettered field hands fought the resultant grass fire, the lab coats fed their punch cards into the computer (in addition to several Montgomery Ward catalogs found insulating our new home). After considerable popping and sputtering, Ol’ Sparky pooped out these predictions, which are questionable to say the least:

BIDEN wins Wisconsin with 50.1% of the vote after Gwen Moore’s son, Supreme Moore Omokunde, delivers one thousand ballots discovered in the trunk of his car.

Biden wins presidency by peeling off former Trump states Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona to win electoral college by 284-254. Republicans call for abolition of electoral college.

Senate loses a net three Republicans to result in a 50-50 tie, making Kamala the cackling kingmaker. Senate incumbents losing: 

Gary Peters, D-Michigan
Doug Jones, D-Alabama
Cory Gardner, R-Colorado
Susan Collins, R(?)-Maine
Martha McSally, R-Arizona
Tom Tillis, R-North Carolina
Steve Daines, R-Montana

Sparky’s Upset Special: Ron Kind loses in the Third (La Crosse) WI congressional district to Republican challenger Derrick Van Orden.

Wisconsin Asssembly Republicans lose Dan Knodl and Jim Ott in the WOW counties but still hold a 61-38 edge.

Madison WI school referenda win with 60% of the vote. Moving vans head for Waunakee and Verona.

Covid-19 vaccine announced November 4. Pandemic officially declared over November 5.

Special prosecutor John Durham indicts Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Strozk, Page, Schiff, and MSNBC for treason November 6.

Uncle Joe slips leash and wanders away from his basement November 7 prompting a nationwide Silver Alert missing persons search.

Lame-duck Republicans grant independence to Puerto Rico November 8; Trump buys Greenland and makes it the 51st state.

Wisconsin Badger football team wins Big 14 conference with a perfect 1-0 record. Declared national champion.

Police & Fire Commission names Mike Koval as new police chief; this time, Satya resigns.

Forensic laptop analysis finds Hunter Biden uttered the infamous C-word at that Madison council meeting.

        Allow me to make a prognostication of my own; after President Trump wins Wisconsin, all the low-flow, lockstep, Lefty lemming-like Luddites will lament, “But, … but, … but, … no one we know even voted for him.”

        They’d be quite right, too. Proglibocrats have drunk their own nasty blue kool-aide cocktail. Here’s the recipe: one jigger of deliberate ignorance, mixed with one jigger of willful arrogance, mixed with some bitter victimhood and entitlement, garnished with a liberal dose of hubris and hyposcrisy.

        Gary,

        You’re correct. The Left likes to look STRICTLY at media’s dumb-dumb polls, most of which are Dem-owned and were incorrect in 2016. Pollsters like Trafalgar & Democracy Institute who called it correctly in 2016 are calling it again for Trump. Look closely at their methodology and the questions they ask and how they include the “shy Trump voter” and you’ll see why they’re more-detailed and superior to Fox, CNN, Quinnipac, etc.

        More importantly, smart people look beyond these polls. They look at things like

        -energy on the ground
        -number of newly-registered voters
        -votes that have already come in
        -change in demographics (ie Black vote has surged for Trump).

        In all of these factors, Trump is leading.

        Also want to not that there’s a chance we MIGHT regain Congress.

        Would be happy to offer more details.

    Regarding the presidential race in particular, I think a report in today’s https://madison.com/news/national/govt-and-politics/two-days-to-go-whos-ahead-trump-or-biden-see-the-latest-polls/article_4442ed7d-86f4-52b9-b388-da1f0edf352d.html regarding the various wildly different poll results is most revealing. Work your way down to the bottom of this article and check out the one that reports on the FaceBook survey.

    That one has a love-anger graph which catalogs all the reactions of FB comments regarding to the four candidates over the last five months. Note that love of Trump/Pence regarding Covid, crime, the economy and the judiciary is far higher than for Biden and Harris. The anger column also reflects this. So is the vast majority of American voters (unless SJWs are really more representative of voters than those on FB) really interested in voting for identity politics over those issues which are often in direct conflict with that ideology?

    This survey, not incidentally, provides results from a social platform which has notoriously censored Trump-positive sentiment or reports during the time of that same time. I’m actually amazed that it even got released.

    So what to conclude if the Biden/Harris ticket actually “wins” this election? There’s a reason Trump has raised an alarm about the very real threat of a stolen election. Seems to me that reasonable people who value our democracy and are not suffering from TDS are justified in having that same fear. Can a “2nd time is a charm” coup be successful? I predict it will fail much worse than the 2016 attempt, but we’ll see. Never underestimate the Deep State.

          Thanks for the suggestion Batman. Yes, after watching a number of TC episodes and interviews over the last few years, it’s clear to me that he is fundamentally a good person who is truly behind the common man. His intellect is also impressive, which is why he is so open to having people opposed to his viewpoint on the show. And combine all that with his good manners and graciousness toward others.
          I remember in one interview where he said that he had always envisioned his path as being a writer/scholar rather than a TV host. That did not surprise me.
          Also , it’s worth mentioning the hands-off attitude of Fox management in regards to Tucker. As he has said, he has NEVER felt constrained by management in what he says and does. This reminds me of the clear separation between the editorial page and the news reporting which was traditionally a hallmark of the Wall St Journal. Since I no longer subscribe to that paper, not sure if this is equally true now or not. Maybe a current subscriber, who understands how important that is, can tall me their own take on that.

    One of traps that we have fallen into is the acceptance of the power of polls. By acceptance, I don’t mean the issue of accuracy per se, but rather the fundamentally negative impact that these endless polls have upon our democratic institutions. Remember back when polls weren’t so important in the public discourse? That enabled more time and freedom to discuss the issues. Now, the actual positions taken by most politicians are largely defined by pandering to the latest poll.
    Today, political races have increasingly become a popularity contest whereby often highly ill-informed and manipulated public sentiment pushes the positions that politicians take. Principled and smart politicians reject the advice of paid consultants when it comes to this.

    This danger was fully recognized and discussed by many media observers during the time polls were first becoming prevalent, but now it’s just full-steam ahead. Another product of the 24/7 news cycle that we have.
    Of course, politicians who put principle before any concern about being elected can still break free of these restraints. If they do, they can also end up winning, regardless of the power of money. Remember the ignominious demise of Eric Cantor?
    What it takes is a commitment to the “truth,” whatever that may mean to the individual voter, and being fearless in expressing that “truth.” It’s called leadership, and I think most Americans are still decent enough to make the right choices in following such leadership. But for how long, if times get really rough, not confident about at all…..
