I'm not for or pro Trump, I think he's unfit to be president tbh, I also think some people just have a hate boner for him

I will say that I prefer Biden tbh, even tho Biden is more like a pupet type of prezz

However, it seems that it will be impossible for the US to get rid of Cheetos
Why do you think Biden will be a puppet? If he is a puppet, who is/are the puppet-masters?

He's definitely got the feel of someone who likes to listen to a range of opinions before deciding on a course of action, rather than Trump's style of acting first and finding opinions to support him later. I guess that looks a little bit puppety from certain points of view, especially if certain interest groups appear to be getting their way more often than not. As with all American Presidents, an awful lot of people invested an awful lot of money in his campaign and will be expecting their reward. I believe that Biden's campaign received rather more than most.

Still, we will see. He's been in the game far too long to have been a poor player riding his luck. Hopefully he still has the ability to channel his experience into a formidable package. He's going to need it.

Not sure yet, we'll see. I think Biden is indeed the lesser of two evils but I'm not sure how he will implement strategies. He seems someone easily influenced and letting others make decisions for him. Maybe he will surprise with strong leadership when in power

When Trump was elected, I never expected his behavior to be so childish because in his show he appeared like a respected businessman. His prez persona was so different

We'll see how Biden acts very soon. The US president has a worldwide impact and I hope for the best

Trump was the same as president as he was on the show. All about making himself look good, he was always right, and no one should divert attention from him. He made decisions based on his gut and not facts. He made poor hiring decisions and regretted them later by firing incompetents that shouldn't have stayed on instead of the competent people he fired for not flattering him. He was continually surprised by decisions made by more competent contestants.

Trump wasn't really a good businessman with all his failures from bankrupt Trump airline, over extending himself with Trump casinos and 3 bankruptcies, Trump Tower bankruptcy, his money losing resorts, and wanting his USFL New Jersey Generals to play their games against the NFL time slots.

Oh didn't know we were doing predictions here. Here's my prediction that I made for various RL bets with friends on the 30th: https://imgur.com/a/5oLqx5J

Looking pretty good though I should have swapped NC and GA in hindsight (though no way I make that call before the election)
Not bad. Got the 306-232 part right.
