This year, like most pundits, most of my predictions have been almost 100% wrong – but that has never stopped me before so why stop now? Here are a few educated guesses as to what might happen during the rest of this unpredictable election cycle:
Hillary Clinton will NOT choose Tim Kaine as her running mate.
Mark Kirk will not return to the US Senate, Duckworth will win without a problem.
The Ron Johnson/Russ Feingold will be very close but will end with Feingold heading back to Washington.
The Republican National Convention will officially nominate Donald Trump without a major floor fight.
Paul Ryan will easily defeat (i.e. mop the floor with) his primary opponent.
The Republicans will keep the House but lose the Senate or end up with a 50/50 split.
Donald Trump will do much better than anyone is saying right now, and will at least come close to winning.
At this point these are the only predictions I am willing to make. Everything else is anybody’s guess. And, of course, these are predictions and not endorsements.
