Former Vice President Joe Biden has chosen California Senator Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential candidate. Senator Harris was a presidential candidate during the 2020 Democratic primaries but fell short in clinching the nomination, which eventually went to VP Joe Biden.
Senator Harris will be the first woman of color on a major presidential ticket in US history. She will be the third woman on a major presidential ticket in US history. Ms. Harris is of Indian and Jamaican decent. Her mother is Indian and her father is from Jamaica.
Before becoming a VP prospect, she is currently one of the two senators representing California in the US Senate; prior to that Ms. Harris was California’s AG, and early on in the beginnings of her political career; she was San Francisco California’s AG. Senator Harris is currently married with two step children. -SB
President Muhammadu Buhari has won reelection for the presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. He won with over 3.9 million popular votes.
President Buhari the incumbent, won the majority of the North East, North West, and South West states, he also took home the majority of the middle belt states.
The former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Ababakar, the oppositional presidential candidate won South South, South East majority states.
This was a well contested election with many analysts & spectators citing President Buhari having a tough battle winning reelection.
It seems that the President Buhari had managed to beat the odds overall. International observers indicated there was an increase of violence during the campaigns and as it became closer to the presidential/national assembly elections, but during the election day votes seemed to be collated orderly. -SB
3 expert analysts predict a Trump victory tonight for the 2016 Presidential Election is under way.
The first comes from Political Science Director @ Stony Brook University (SUNY) Dr. Helmut Norpoth. I interviewed Dr. Norpoth ( who has been on Fox News) for the EFR Podcast. I interviewed him on Nov. 7, 2016 (Monday), so he could give insight to our listenership, about the elections.
He indicated that he was sticking to his model that has predicted the last 5 elections correctly; and that Trump will become victorious. Dr. Norpoth has predicted the last 5 presidential elections correctly, we will see if tonight will be a 6th.
Sidenote: The interview we did with Dr. Norpoth, will be posted on this site and Souncloud later this evening.
The other professor who has had 30 years of predicting presidential elections correctly is Professor Allan Lichtman of American University. He has been on various media publications (CBS, The Hill, such as that Trump will prevail victorious and he has stood by this prediction till this day; though many media outlets have since indicated he has doubled down on this prediction.
Lastly the third presidential prediction analyst is writer David Lauter, the LA Times Washington Bureau Chief. His model from the USC/LA Times “DayBreak” Tracking Poll has Donald Trump winning tonight’s election by 2%-2.5%, approx 46.8%-43.6% Trump over Clinton by tonight’s end. He has been polling since the summer and has indicated that his model will forge a Trump win and is anticipating what the results will conclude.
One thing is for sure tonight, we either will have the first ever woman president of the United States, or the first political outsider who has never ran in politics and happens to be a real estate mogul/tycoon.
Tonight by 12am midnight or before then we shall see. -SB
