Irrefutable Point VII: Florida's Rightward Shift Foreshadows a Trump Landslide
The seventh irrefutable point of the 2020 election, complete with its mandate for full remediation, revisits the correlation of political bellwethers, which are leading indicators of final election outcomes. I have already shared the importance of the coalition of bellwether states in this series, and why their ties to working class sentiment influence presidential races and give us early indicators of who should be winning these elections.
I cared about one thing, and one thing alone, in the first stage of election counting on November 3, 2020. I was watching Florida like a hawk. Trump was a slam dunk to carry Ohio, and when Florida and Ohio go together, they don’t tend to miss aligning with the ultimate winner of the presidency. They managed to miss in 1960, when Nixon carried both, but electoral chaos in Illinois created a controversial finish that gave John F. Kennedy the keys to the White House.
