Sadly, the antiquated EC setup and general emotional intensity leave room for me to be wrong about that. Too much room to be wrong, much to much. I'm not feeling real good about the prospects, to be frank.
I also think that the Electoral College will cause a Civil War in America.

The Bush v Gore could have gone real disastrous if one of them was the incumbent as it is now with the Trump v Biden but with only one State in play.

The Electoral College plays into Murphy's Law --Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
