Election Day is coming… Rick Worthington’s predictions are as follows.

Beware, the election will be held on Tuesday, November 6th. The people will win the day. Well, sort of.

Here are a few predictions I would like to make. Pointing out: This is just my prediction.  

1. Just about every single Republican will win (in Idaho.)

This should shock NO ONE. The number of registered Republicans in Idaho is 4 to 1 over Democrats according to the Idaho Secretary Of State
Voter Registration Totals as of October 1, 2018. If all unaffiliated voters decided to vote for a Democrat it would still only be a close vote. If the GOP fails to head to the polls, well, that could be another story.

 

2. I will vote for Prop 1 to pass, but I don’t think it will.
The proposition is about horse racing and gambling. It’s opposed by the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, who own casino properties and want to keep the Monopoly they have in the state of Idaho. It’s supported by ranchers among others who want to bring horse racing back to several racetracks in the state, and who also want to offer Historical Horse racing machines. Those machines are basically slot machines. Yes – gambling is at the heart of this measure. I don’t have an issue with that, but being I was born in Elko, maybe that’s the Nevada in me showing again.

 

3. Prop 2 will pass.

Just about everyone wants to see Medicaid expanded to help people stuck in the gap. It has worked in just about every state it has been tried, and it will work well in Idaho. It’s the best solution to the problem yet.

 

4. Paulette Jordan will lose, and lose huge to Brad Little.

Undecided voters may like many things about her, but too much shade has been thrown at her campaign to be a coincidence. Anybody else notice she can’t get any support from her big name colleagues at the State House? I’ll be honest and say it – the comment she made on 670 KBOI about being the “only real American and Idahoan” on the ballot makes me really dislike her. Casting yourself as being more worthy of election because of your race bugs me.

 

Please remember to vote on Tuesday, November 6th
