It seems as though a vast majority of the mainstream media is preparing Americans for an unmitigated mess come the November election.
We’ve heard tales of month-long wait times for results. We’ve been told that the Supreme Court might get involved. Heck, there are even some on the far left who think President Trump is going to steal the whole thing outright and trigger a civil war.
In other words: No one seems to think that this thing will be an easy, clear decision.
Well, except for James Carville.
Carville told MSNBC’s Brian Williams he anticipated a Democrat win for Joe Biden and control of both chambers of Congress on November 3 and went as far as to boast about a celebratory bottle of champagne in time for Williams’ 11 p.m. ET program.
“Not only are we going to know election night, we’re going to know at 10:30 Eastern,” he said. “This thing is not going to be close. We’re going to know early. I’m not in any panic whatsoever. I mean, I’m just on edge because the stakes are so high. But I feel very good about where the Democrats are. And I’ll probably see as much polling as anybody in the country. And if anything, it continues to improve. I kind of thought the natural gravity would take it down, but that doesn’t seem to be happening as of yet. And we’ve got three weeks before we go to post. I’m ready to go. I think we’re going to know, and I anticipate opening a bottle of champagne. Brian, maybe I’ll share it with you by distance.”
Of course, Carville is known for his exuberance, particularly on television, lending an air of doubt to just about anything he says.
