Most nonpartisan political analysts currently see the electoral map tilting in the Democrats’ favor. Their ratings take into account a number of factors, from polls and political developments to a state’s voting history. Merging the ratings from four such handicappers—Cook Political Report, Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report, Sabato’s Crystal Ball and Real Clear Politics—shows a lopsided consensus outlook if the election were held today, with Democrats winning 347 electoral votes to 191 for Republicans.

Experts are abound. One of my colleagues expressed his expert opinion and even bet £200 that Trump would be assassinated this year (a bullet will hit him, to be precise, according to the rules of the bet).

If the past is to give us any clues, even though most analysts and experts are wrong most of the time, there is one among them, undiscovered at the moment, whose prediction will prove to be spot on. He or she will become the star for the  duration of the next political cycle.
