The 2020 Election Isn't Even Close

Good people don't do nothing
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for ---- men to do nothing.
There is a general consensus among observers that the 2020 election is "a close race" with Biden and Trump neck-and-neck for most of it, right up until the very end.
