Make your predictions. Not who you want, but what you think will happen.

My prediction

Hillary wins Popular vote 48-47.
Trump wins electoral college thanks to Michigan with 275 electoral votes.

Donald Trump wins the Presidency by a nose.

Worst presidential campaign in history. Sexist and bigot. Leaked audio tape talking about grabbing "p***y". Lost all three debates. Most celebrities which is liberal-biased and every living former President did not endorse him. Media bias. World was completely against him. How the f did this happen? Oh yeah, the uneducated white people voted more happened...

America, brace yourselves.

I'm indifferent. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Hillary belongs in jail. But you can never be sure what Trump will bring. Divided States of America? Civil war? I only like him because he is honest and isn't part of the political machine like Hillary is. But other than that with his volatile temperament and lack of political experience, it makes many people on the edge including the stock trade and minorities. Make White America Hate Again?

Hillary owed it to her supporters to come out at 2 a.m. and give them 10 minutes. To wait until morning when you got trounced is pretty bad. The election was basically over at 11 p.m.

I'm not a believer in the media bias, but last night was tough to watch on CNN. First, why was Georgia not called until like 11 p.m. when Trump was ahead by 400,000 votes all night? CNN also refused to call Florida when it was obvious Clinton lost. And, when Clinton was going down in flames, Wolf Blitzer said at 11 p.m. that the Clinton camp must be happy now when they won California. And Jake Tapper basically said no, they're not happy about anything right now.

Look like Hillary was DQ and placed 2nd. LOL. Nice call Chris. It was nice to hear Trump mention Secretariat in his Victory speech

Hillary just said on her concession speech, glass ceiling can be broken sooner. Yeah, four years...

Can Americans correct this in four years with "20/20" vision? Considering majority of people were not expecting Trump to be elected POTUS by deciding to run only over a year ago with no political or military experience, nobody has the right to scoff at Michelle's chances since anything can happen and almost anyone without the right qualifications can win after watching last night's shocking upset.

That "Chrome for President" joke almost came true. Except we just got the horse's a** instead of the whole animal. Godhelp us.

Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke is calling Donald Trump's electoral victory "one of the most exciting nights of my life."
"Make no mistake about it, our people have played a HUGE role in electing Trump!" he wrote.

It's depressing to think that so many Americans may have decided that they'd rather have a white male, no matter how unqualified or flawed, than anything else.
A raw reaction from CNN's Van Jones:
“This was a white-lash against a changing country. It was a white-lash against a black president in part, and that’s the part where the pain comes.”

It must be nice to be able to look past one man's blatant racism, xenophobia and homophobia because it doesn't affect you.

Not if we hijack it with cinnamon roll recipes.

A bitter, profanity-laced rant about whether or not to put sugar in cornbread would be a real addition to this thread.

(The answer isn't just no, it's #$@$ NO.)

^ This. :lol:
I'm sorry, but savory, slightly salty cornbread is SO much better than sweet, crumbly cornbread.
If you wanted cake, you should have ordered cake. :P
