Default Election day poll

If your vote determined who would be the U.S. president in February 2021, who would you pick if you had to choose between Trump and Biden? There is a related discussion thread at: https://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=24732 , but I'm curious to know what percentage of people on here are Trump supporters.

Don't be shy, it's anonymous!

You have it in your power to do so.

My current forecast is that Trump should win even without the Florida electors.

Is this a prediction that Trump will win at least 299 electoral votes?

No, not quite right, he probably wins with 293 : 245.

The results so far are 18 Biden - 4 Trump? Holy cow.

I was expecting Biden to be more popular than Trump on here by a 2-1 margin and not a 4-1 margin, but I guess there are more liberals on here than I originally thought.

Or maybe people just don't like Trump in particular, and the vote for a generic Democrat vs. a generic Republican would be more like 18 - 9 instead of 18 - 4.

As far as the electoral vote goes, I think Biden wins this narrowly by something like 272 - 266.

Florida is 29, so without it, the count would be (293-29) : (245+29) or a 264:274 Biden win, thus contradicting yourself.

I said this before Florida was won for Trump and several results from other states were not yet available E.g. the number of votes already counted in the individual states.

Irrelevant. The question is regarding your original prediction and its implication ("Trump should win even without the Florida electors") ==> Trump will win 299 electors (because, by that time, FL had been called for Trump)

We'll see it in the end, I can't estimate that exactly.
