    Interesting ... everyone else dropped out and Trump is currently under 80% in the republican vote (he was under 70% earlier) ... Biden is over 90% of the democratic vote.

    The stock market has, in general, greater returns with a Democratic president. Biden and Trump are very close to each other when comparing stock growth.

    What I found more interesting was that they didn't even mention the Presidential race in the Daily Herald (IL's primary was officially yesterday, or depending on how you look at it ran from March 4-19 thanks to "early voting"), they only talked about the Illinois-specific races.
    Even the paper tacitly acknowledged that the voters didn't get any say in choosing the candidates for President in Illinois this year.

    EDIT: They DID mention the Presidential Primaries, but it was a small paragraph buried among many pages of other election results where the presidential races were front page banner headlines in every election both primary and general I can remember starting in 1988. I'm afraid I wasn't quite up to reading the paper in 1984 as I was just starting to learn to read Dr. Seuss, I don't even really remember the race. I remember "New Coke" and "Where's the Beef?" but not the race.

    I don't envy whoever has to lead during the next 4 years, although it probably won't be Biden at this rate
