From an economic standpoint it would be extraordinary if Trump were to win. No president has ever won re-election with what unemployment and GDP growth as it will be. Obama in 2012 went against things in that respect too, but the economy was obviously on an upward trajectory.

That’s not to say Trump can’t win but I think a lot of 2016-fatigue and confirmation bias is at play here. Most economic models actually predicted a Trump win in 2016 and they aren’t in 2020.

It ends either if we vote him out and US Marshals actually force him to leave the White House on inauguration day or he becomes a true dictator in which case it's no longer an administration.

I'm still 9, 11, 13, 14.

I believe Trump will lose, but a win is not unlikely (though less than 2016). Given an electoral loss, I expect Trump to throw lawsuits at the courts continuously between November 4, 2020 and January 20, 2021.

I'm still concerned about violence, particularly if Trump wins (though not civil war level violence or scenarios 12 & 16 where the election is decided extralegally).

IMHO:

If Trump loses, I expect he'll spend his two-and-a-half months as a lame duck filing lawsuits, spreading voter fraud conspiracy theories, and being an all around bitter, vindictive, destructive person. Some of the deadenders will follow his lead and we'll see lone wolf attacks.

If Trump wins, it will be similar to 2016: an Electoral College victory built on a handful of votes in a handful precincts in a handful of states. He will not win the popular vote and he will not have a popular mandate. There will be mass protests and I expect some to turn violent.

I think the possibility of violence is greater if Trump wins.

Almost scary how accurate that could turn out to be.

Disputed win or loss are definitely still possible
