Bernie Sanders’ Election Prediction on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ Goes Viral
Bernie Sanders predicted the election results from this past Tuesday two weeks ago.
A clip from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has resurfaced, due to its eery correctness on Election Day.
Bernie Sanders appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on October 23. He discussed the election and what he thought would happen on election night.
Sanders went over when he believed America would have an answer for the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election. Oddly enough, he hit the nail right on the head. He described in detail exactly what happened this past Tuesday.

“You’re going to have a situation, I suspect, in states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, other states, where they are going to be receiving huge amounts of mail-in ballots,” Sanders explained. “Unlike states like Florida or Vermont, they’re not able — for bad reasons — to begin processing those ballots until Election Day, or maybe when the polls close. That means you’re going to have states dealing with perhaps millions of mail-in ballots.”
Twitter users have blown up this video clip in which they believe that Sanders predicted it all.

Sanders continued to describe the night, with an accurate play-by-play of what truly ended up happening.
“It could well be that at 10 o’clock on election night, Trump is winning in Michigan, he’s winning in Pennsylvania, he’s winning in Wisconsin,” Sanders continues. “And he gets on the television and he says, ‘Thank you, Americans, for reelecting me. It’s all over. Have a good day.'”
Trump did in fact state that he had won the election on Tuesday night. Additionally, Sanders predicted that the mail-in ballots would then put Biden leading in the battleground states.
“But then the next day, and the day following, all those mail-in ballots start getting counted, and it (could) turn out that Biden has won those states,” Sanders predicted. “At which point, Trump says, ‘See? I told you the whole thing was fraudulent. I told you those mail-in ballots were crooked, and we’re not going to leave the office.'”
Biden did in fact win Michigan and Wisconsin. The Trump campaign has announced that they want to pursue further legal actions within the state of Pennsylvania to stop counting ballots.
The race is still as tight as can be and America is impatiently waiting on who will win the title of President-Elect. Stay motivated and educated on the election. This is history in the making.
