On October 23rd, Bernie Sanders went on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Over the course of a long conversation, Fallon asked former presidential candidate Sanders how long he felt the election results could be delayed. Sanders went onto talk about how important that question was, and brought up that states such as Michigan and Wisconsin could be flipped after mail-in votes were counted. And wouldn’t we know it, that’s exactly what is happening right now.
He had also mentioned that it is likely that the first votes that would be counted in those certain states would be votes that came in on Election Day, which would be predominantly Republican. He also went onto predict the possibility that Trump could prematurely claim a victory on Election Night, before all the mail-in votes were counted. He ended by saying “People should be prepared for that possibility”.
Who would’ve thought that simply tuning into The Tonight Show two weeks ago would’ve given you a glimpse into our future that has turned out to be shockingly accurate?
